Aloha and thank you for your question about the tile.
The wall tile is DalTile Gris Linen porcelain in 12x24 with half cut to 6x24.
The darker floor tile is Nori porcelain 6x24.
The lighter floor tile is tumbled coral by ModWalls Pebble Collection but they no longer have it on their website.

Aloha and thank you for asking!
The LED shower drain lights are by ACO Drains.
There are two waterproof light packs that have sensors. When the water covers the contacts, the lights go on, thus illuminating the drain. After water has stopped they automatically shut off after two minutes. They have several color options and are also available for a square drain as well. This is an accessory component, not part of the drain system.
Here is the manufacturer's link: http://www.quartzbyaco.com/water-activated-led-for-linear-drains
We installed the red lights in the client's other bath and both features are really cool, and helpful for low lighting in the shower.
Aloha,

Waterproof LED and other lighting? - Hi. I am building a Wetroom from an old 8x6 traditional bathroom. I have not been able to find any lighting approved in the U.S. other than ugly plastic recessed. What light did you use for this drain? Which "high tech lighting" products did you use and/or other bright lighting you would recommend that meets UL for within the shower? Thank you, you do beautiful work. Gail

Aloha and thank you for asking! There are many more waterproof LED options available today versus a year ago. The LED shower drain lights are by ACO Drains. There are two waterproof light packs that have sensors. When the water covers the contacts, the lights go on, thus illuminating the drain. After water has stopped they automatically shut off after two minutes. They have several color options and are also available for a square drain. This is an accessory component, not part of the drain system.
For overhead LED lighting, we just completed a project with an amazing new LED recessed light retrofit called the DLR4 and DLR56. These are approved for wet locations and fully dimmable with very bright, clean light. At only $48ea, they are the BEST deal out there: http://thomsonelectricsupply.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=108_107
Check out SuperBrightLeds: http://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/flexible-strips-and-bars/
There are a number of waterproof options under the category "Water Resistance" on the left side of the screen.
Also, you may wish to check out Orange Tree Trade: http://www.orangetreetrade.com/shop/
We have purchased many of our 3/8" rope LED lights from them. The LED color is consistent and the 3/8" allow for tighter bends and turns. We installed this type of rope light to illuminate the cast glass art in one of our bath projects. We waterproofed the cast glass installation and placed the LED rope light inside the water-tight box that we fabricated.
We hope that these resources help. All the best!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to How to Design an Accessible Shower
This bathroom was designed and built by By Design Builders, which specified an LED drain light so the client can keep his or her bearings when the shower steams up. If you suffer from a vision impairment, consider one of these LED light kits and linear shower drains. Tip: Ensure that your bathroom is safely lit at night. Also consider installing nightlights to clearly illuminate the hallway between the bedroom and the bathroom.
John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Shower Lights Bathe Bathrooms in Brightness
This shower drain has its own LED battery pack, which activates when the shower turns on. When water enters the drain, the LED light comes on. The designer incorporated the light so the clients would have more illumination and a way to orient themselves in the shower.This can be a handy feature if you find you have trouble seeing when things steam up in the shower.
