Here's my bathroom remodel project.
Goodies include a Duravit tub, Toto toilet, a flush ceiling mounted kohler shower-head, custom vanity, etc.

for what it's worth, the varied angles are a bit disconcerting. i just wrapped a class in which we discussed a human's need to "line things up" (gestalt and the law of pragnanz). walking into this room -- in which little lines up with the adjacent walls -- would bug me a little. how about something with a few less random angles?

I LOVE the tiles on the bathtub surround. I also like the cabinet design and that the tiles run at the angle of the surrounding cabinetry. Very nice. I can't wait to see it finished.

Very nice work!
I’ve got a few questions if I may:
Great use of the mosaic tile around the tub, are the 2" x 4"'s going to be exposed? And will the short wall next to the tub be enough to keep the shower water in or will you need a glass door? What will you use the alcove next to the toilet for?
What CAD program did you draw with?
I feel like a two year-old, why is there air? Why?

looks great. i wondered about the angles, but the floor tiles placed in the same
direction make it feel right.
and if one had a much smaller space, the toilet could be placed at the narrow end of the
counter between it and the tub. that allows for a grand tub and shower...

curious about the shower head. let us know how you like it. it is handsome.
i like a direct hit forward. OPO was 7ft tall so i added an extension arm to bring it down.
but lots of splash....

finished pics coming soon!

Postby elvispresley2k » Thu May 29, 2008 11:48 am

Ha whoops, I've been busy.

I'll post pics asap.

The bathroom hit some snags since the last post. We been using it for about 5 weeks however. There are still a few little punch-out details needing completion.

All that mosaic tile in the pics above had to be ripped out and re-done. The tile contractor used the WRONG GROUT COLOR. The tiles were also very sloppily applied. Our contractor had to rip it all out and find a new (better qualified) tile guy. Had to re-order tile which took a couple weeks.

Searched high and low for a discontinued corian color, "Dusty Rose" I think it was. Couldn't find it, so we settled for a white corian. Due to the shape of the cabinet, the contractor had to order a full sheet which took a little longer. Kinda expensive and wasteful since it's a non-standard size.

The shower glass installation was another big headache. Contractors freak at minimal or non-standard stuff. We have a sloping roof/ceiling and had the glass custom cut to match the angle (pics soon!).

The electrical contractor installed sconce lights at the wrong heights, yada, yada.

Anyway the bath looks and works great.

Stay tuned for pics later this eve.

Pics...

Postby elvispresley2k » Thu May 29, 2008 12:46 pm

Okay here are a bunch of pics.
A couple earlier shots from this winter (one exterior) so you can get a feel for the house.

Forgot to mention, the contractor order the wrong size corian backsplash. It was too tall. Had it ripped out. Much cleaner look without it. Just have to be careful at the sink until a bead of caulk is there.

Those plastic clips on the mirrors are temporary until they're glued to the wall.

Comments welcome!

Excuse the mess! We're still competing with the painters and drywall guys in this space. :)

Love the tiles in the shower. The dark ones tumble random down below.
Hard to do and beautiful...
The goldfish seems lonely :) but has the best seat in the 'bath'...
Nice work, nice cabinets!
If your walls are painted a semi-gloss as they apear, you shoud not
have a problem with the back-splash snafoo...
A cleaner line overall...

Nice work. Good to see that interesting drawing at the top come to life.

And I love the accidental connection between the third- and second-to-last photos. . .!

Wow!
This looks even better than your sketches. I am just a sales/merchandiser type versus an "artiste" but I have always advocated for diagonals in design. Not always accepted, but you are rockin' em.

And that tile looks really great. Sorry you had to go through so much drama, but it looks swell now.

I also really like the design of the cabinet-that leg gives it an airy look but not too artsy-still really substantial.
Great job!

Interesting design and remodel!

Just going by the photographs...does that one plate glass for the shower enclosure keep all the shower splash contained? It looks like the end of the shower pan is open...or is there a door I overlooked?

I saw the two outlets by the sink with no covers yet...I believe by national electrical code those outlets should be ground fault interrupting (GFI) type. Typically they are required whenever an outlet is near a wet location.

Otherwise...cool pictures! Thanks for the update.
