Bathroom Tiles !

Our bathrooms have now been tiled except for the splashbacks as we don't have any benchtops yet. I'm absolutely loving our tile selections now that they're all in place and grouted - I just wish they were clean!  We're currently storing 20+ boxes of the white wall tiles for floor to ceiling tiling in both bathrooms - we were planning on having the tiler lay everything at once but we have since decided to have it tiled after handover - I wish I could see it all done now though!  Our bathroom feature tiles look brown in the photos below but they are more grey / concrete / charcoal colours in the flesh.  The same tiles will be the splashbacks for the three vanities.

The painter started at the house on Thursday afternoon but nothing to show yet as he's just been doing some prep work and filling of nail holes etc.

Our sunhood also got installed above the garage and it makes a real difference to the finished look. It will be painted the same dark blue (Dulux "Ticking") as the weatherboards - I hope it breaks the look of the render up a little as it still has the baby blue tinge to it!

Sunhood over the garage - to be painted the same colour as the dark blue weatherboards.

Love your feature tiles!!

Looking good!!!

Ooooh I like that sun hood! What is it made of?

Your feature tiles look great, laying them in perpendicular to the main tiles really make them stand out! Good work.

Em said...

Thanks for all the positive feedback! The sun hood is made of an acrylic covered foam that will be rendered and then painted, it's funny how a little box can make such a difference, it seems more "finished" now! Perpendicular, I don't think I've heard that word since high school maths, to be honest we didn't even think about the opposing directions until you pointed it out DB!

The shower niche looks amazing, so shiny and clean looking! Loving it all!

Em said...

I was amazed at the shiny-ness of the shower too Lauren - fingers crossed it stays that way for a long long time!

Mel said...

Hi Em, it's all looking great!! Love the shower niche! I can hardly see the baby blue, but if you don't love it, it shouldn't be too hard to paint over, I have painted the render on the place we are in at then moment and it was relatively easy, just need a ladder. Look forward to seeing some more pics of that gorgeous void of yours.

Em said...

Thanks Mel! The baby blue really doesn't show that much anymore, I think when it was still wet & fresh it looked bad but it's okay now. Still waiting on another coat to go on so will make a decision then. Painters should be finished this week so the void will make an appearance in a few days!

danielb said...

Man we should have got one of those shower niches, can't tell you how much I hate the metal rack that hangs over the shower head that always goes rusty even if it has a plastic coating, or the suction cup shelf where the suction cups always wind up being over a grout line!

Oh well.

Em said...

Lol, yes they are a wonderful invention! I don't know what your supervisor is like but ours said at the start if there was anything that we really wanted to change during the build to speak with him and he would do what he could - might be worth a shot before the framers are finished as they need to build one in. They were only $280 each, regardless of size.

Love the feature tile!

Em said...

Thanks INS!

I love the vertical design of the feature tiles! The alternating color of the tiles helped make the overall design of the bathroom look pleasing and not boring to the eyes. How is the overall construction work as of now? :)
