How thick is the gapfrom the shower wall to the edge of the cove? - I am having a cove light as you have in my own shower. So far it is speced as having a 4" gap which I think is too wide. How thick is the gap for your cove? it looks narrower. Thank you!

Contact dSpace Architect, the project architect, also on HOUZZ for that dimension. I cannot image it is any less 3" and probably wider. Remember, someone has to get their hands in there for service.

Beautiful flooring! When picking a grout colour, do you like to pick - a colour that blends in or stands out slightly from the tile?For example, would this grout be more white to match the background colour, or off white or greyish to match the veining? Thanks so much for the help.

Regarding the vanities, marble finish , and vinyl tile paint analogue.... - We are redoing a bathroom and love your design. I would first like to thank you for posting your responses to questions on Houzz. It is so gracious of you. We are considering a similar bathroom but have a couple of questions that haven't been addressed on the site. First, do you buy the vanities, then have them stripped and painted? Second, would porcelain tile accurately mimic honed carrara or calacatta gold? My gut feeling is that there is a certain translucency that probably can't be done in porcelain despite the insistence of the tile merchant. Third, would there be a paint analog to the vinyl wallcovering? We appreciate your time, and if you don't have time to answer we understand. Thanks again for posting your answers on Houzz.

Thanks for the kind words. The vanties were custom designed and finished in semi-gloss paint. There are some awesome porcelain tiles that mimic carrara or calacatta gold, try Stone Source in Chicago or The Tile Gallery in Chicago. This room i sfinished in a vinyl wall covering that has some subtle texture - a paint will not give you the same look and feel. Best of luck! Mike

We are disigning a steam shower and have chosen a calcutta look alike porcelain. We were told real marble would not be a good choice for steam showers. As for the shower floor tile the only coice I seem to have is real marble. My question is how is the marble performing in the steam shower?

Natural Stone is a scary choice for a steam shower. I have seen the ugly side of cheap carrera turn to a rust coloured mess in a multi million dollar home. Buying good quality stone and if possible testing it prior to installation is key.

Our last white carrera steam shower was all solid slabs. I used some off cuts and soaked them for two days and then dried. The marble did not leak any mineral and the colour held true.

A porcelain tile is always a better choice. If you must have real stone remember that you are working with Mother Nature and sometimes she is not so friendly...

What a great steam shower. Is the bench designed with a metal cleat system or just let into the wall slabs? Thanks for any insight! John Whipple By Any Design Ltd. http://www.no-curb.com

The marble slab bench is supported by steel mounted to the wall to provide the floating effect. The detailing was done by dSpace Studio in Chicago.

Hi! Just love your work. Wish I lived in Chicago! Can you tell me if that is marble for shower walls/ floor/ceiling and if you have any concerns about using Carrara marble in a steam shower? Love marble and have it all over the kitchen but concerned with using it in the bathroom, especially in a steam shower. Thanks!,

Gorgeous. Can you detail how the recessed section is built for the strip lighting in the shower? How big is the recess? Is it LED, if so, where are the controls hidden? Much appreciated, and well done yet again.

is the flooring in the shower honed or polished? - We have a platform for our tub and freestanding shower and I prefer to use polished marble but worry about slipping. Perhaps just honed in the shower? I also like large tiles. Did you use smaller one on your shower floors than in the main bathroom?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Showerheads. You don't have to give up a luxe shower experience to save water. Feel virtuous when lathering up with a WaterSense-certified shower head. WaterSense understands that no one wants a wimpy shower spray, so all their approved fixtures tout a "satisfactory shower that is equal to or better than conventional showerheads on the market" while using just 2 gallons of water per minute.Showers typically use less water than baths, as long as they're kept brief. A timer can help you keep an eye on how long you've been lathering up.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Design Basics to Help You Think Through a New Master Bath
Medicine cabinets. Since we easily collect various toiletries, having a good place to store them is essential. While drawers in the cabinets and the space under the sink provide some storage, medicine cabinets place more accessible and well-lit storage areas at eye level. There are many ready-to-install medicine cabinets that range from 15 to 24 inches (38 to 61 centimeters) in width and 20 to 30 inches (51 to 76 centimeters) in height. You can either mount these on side walls adjacent to the sink or in the wall above the sink. You will want the top of the cabinet to stay under 80 inches (203 centimeters) but not below 48 inches (122 centimeters).
