The color that was selected with the designer was Alabaster in the Hydroment brand. Occasionally the color get changed in the field with our tile installer and the designer is not always notified. Just a heads up to get samples and double check things before you grout. :)

You may be well past needing this but here it is: this custom tiled shower pan ended up being roughly 65" x 44 1/2". If you are doing tile you really have a lot of flexibility. Hope that helps. :)

JanZaitlin - Do you know if there have been any moisture problems with using the Crossville tiles in the shower? I am asking because I can't see any grout lines between the tiles. (I am assuming there is some grout.) Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Sorry for the late reply. I spoke with the tile guy that did this work. As it turns out he did not have room for grout lines. What he did instead was much more tedious. He (and we) were not comfortable with unprotected joints in the shower so he actually ended up CAULKING each of the joints that was within the wet zone. I hope this helps and again apologize for the late reply.

Sorry for the late reply. I believe the homeowner purchased that once we were done but here is a source we have used in the past: http://www.teakworks4u.com/Mats/

Thanks!

The light used in the showe was not for light and heat but I'm sure you could get a vent fan/heater combo. :)

What a gorgeous bathroom! Is this a modified curbless shower? It looks like the glass is raised just a bit either to account for the slope in the shower floor or to be able to open the door outwards over the teak mat?

The glass shower surround is raised up by using a bull nose tile to allow the shower door to be raised up and clear the teak mat.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ventana Construction LLC added this to Get Creative With Your Bathroom Floor Tile
Similarly, the pebble tile in this bath delineates the area for the shower and frames each side of the shower opening. The pebbles have the bonus of adding texture underfoot. Tip: When considering pebble tile, remember that much more grout will be visible than with standard tile. Talk with your tile setter about how much grout to expect and whether there's a choice for more or less. The answers might influence the color of grout you select.

Maybe in guest bath. Use contrast tile in shower where privacy frost glass panel is, then carry all the way over through door to wall above toilet. Could do an indent like this to match indent in shower under shower head.
