Black tiles can be great because they give a reflective surface (refplection pond look) during the day but can be lit up with coloured lights at night (see attached)

Or for a twist on the matt black finish you could look at a glass blend - this pool is finished with Trend 'Brillante 260' blend tiles

Wattage of lights - Do you happen to know the wattage of the two Boyd Emanation lights? We have a small bathroom and wonder if a pair of the 30 watt models will be enough light. Thanks!

each 36" fixture has a 21w T-5 fluor. lamp. This was plenty of light at the vanity mirror location, but depending on the size of your "small" bathroom you might consider at least another overhead fixture that would provide general ambient lighting. In this bath we used 3 cube wall fluor. sconces to provide general illumination because of size (length) of room a well as its double duty as a laundry space.

Boyd's fixture wattage are dependent on the length of fixture you choose, see

Classic Clawfoot Tubs
By the way, this style is called a traditional rolled rim clawfoot tub. (We carry it as well.) The exterior of the tub comes in white, but can be painted with any latex interior house paint.

Hi, as mentioned before the tub exterior can be painted to any color you want. Take a look at this tubwith oil rubbed bronze finish feet: and maybe this Clawfoot Tub faucet and hardware to match:

Could I put up a shower attachment and glass walls to make a shower area? - I have a very similar shaped bath. I was thinking of doing the same with my claw foot tub but with a shower attachment. My window will be a smaller transom window. Could I put glass "walls" between the tub and shower to create a "shower" area? How could you drain this? French drain along the back wall?

If I understand correctly your bathroom must be about 3' wider than one in photo, If so I don't see why you could not have a tempered glass partition between tub and shower, you would have to install a floor drain and make sure bath floor was fully water proofed and re-sloped towards new drain

these were front loading 27" washer and dryer by Miele, but just about any front loading machines can be built-in under a counter, the smaller they are the easier to integrate with the cabinetry. The most difficult part is concealing the washer drain and water supply shut off valve box. In this case we had a small cutout-lift off panel in back portion of the Caesarstone counter.

The outside of the tub was pretty dinged up... even before it was removed from the original bathroom. Our clients took it upon themselves to restore it; they prepped it, metal primed the exterior, and finished with multiple coats of flat black finish paint
