Powder Room

A cramped and dated kitchen was completely removed. New custom cabinets, built-in wine storage and shelves came from the same shop. Quartz waterfall counters were installed with all-new flooring, LED light fixtures, plumbing fixtures and appliances. A new sliding pocket door provides access from the dining room to the powder room as well as to the backyard. A new tankless toilet as well as new finishes on floor, walls and ceiling make a small powder room feel larger than it is in real life.

The owner selected those, she said: "The tiles are 2x12 inches and the color is Swiss Coffee. I'm afraid I don't have the brand but they were purchased from Ceramic Tile design in San Francisco."

Thank you ... the owner selected those, she said: "The Caesarstone countertop is Blizzard. The tiles are 2x12 inches and the color is Swiss Coffee. I'm afraid I don't have the brand but they were purchased from Ceramic Tile design in San Francisco."

This is absolutely stunning! I'm going to copy this in my powder room, but am curious what flooring and color you selected to go with this amazing bathroom.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Finishing Touches: Pro Tricks for Installing Fixtures in Your Tile
This clever tile layout didn't need any drilling — every fixture hole is set over a grout joint. This tends to be the easiest approach for sink fixture installations like this, since you need to make only a semicircle cut in each tile. This can be done with a blade, rather than a drill.

This is one of my favorite bathrooms ever. The oversize tile is installed flawlessly. The tile for the shower controls was drilled for the plumbing fixture and mitered along the long edge (the bottom of the tile) to meet the tile on the top of the niche. So much effort for just one tile, but this look is worth it. Tip: Ask your installer to put in the tiles on your key focal points first to make sure you get the exact look you want.
