Floor tile detail. - I too am looking at a Chloe pinwheel mosaic tile for my project, but don't like the center tiles being polished. Did someone actually pop out the center tiles in the standard product and customize it? How much time did that take per sq foot? I'm tempted, but don't want to drive myself crazy. Thanks.

Fortunately, you can get chloe pinwheel with a blank spot in the middle!

Considering I am about an hour from San Francisco might you share the local company's name?

Typically the contractor selects a shower door company they like to work with. Just show them the photo and you'll get what you need. : ) Rhoda

Yes, you can see the curb here:

The floor tile is: American Olean Chloe Pinwheel Mosaic and the blue mosaic tile that was inserted in the floor tile and is present in the decorative band is Elida Ceramica Elida Glass Mosaic Ocean

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Convert Your Tub Space Into a Shower — the Tiling and Grouting Phase
Mixing and matching tile. This builder has used three different tiles for one gem of a shower. Mixing tiles from different suppliers is a very practical way to reduce your shower renovation costs. Some glass tile can run up to $100 per square foot, whereas a basic ceramic white tile can cost as little as $2 per square foot. Using more expensive glass tile as a simple accent can help you stick to your budget.If you look closely in this photo, you will see that all the different tiles line up evenly. This extra detail takes a little more time and effort but makes a big difference.
Adding Starphire glass on the shower doors was another worthwhile splurge. "This is much more clear than regular glass," Fry says. "Conventional glass has a greenish hue and transmits about 10 percent less light." The homeowner struggled to find a white floor tile pattern with blue squares in it; white with black was the most common option. But she found that the black squares came in another box, to be inserted into the pattern separately, which led to a clever custom solution. "The tile guys used the recycled glass wall tile strips and put various colors from the mosaic into the centers of the white pattern," she says.Heating mats underneath the tile keep feet warm. Shower fixture: Grohe 19-340-002 Europlus Pressure; glass block window: Pacific Glass Block
