The tile is beautiful. I checked the web site and it is rather daunting to figure what one needs t order and final cost. Any input on approximate cost of this wall and how to measure? Need input and would really appreciate.

I would recommend calling or emailing the tile company, Avente Tile. They have wonderful customer service. I am sure they would be willing to help with your order.

It is ceramic tile. Both ceramic and porcelain tile are good choices for a bathroom.

Gutrehab,
A properly installed baluster will be safe even with rambunctious kids. It is very possible that some salvaged balusters are shorter than today's standards. Old homes often have features that would not pass inspection today.

I don't remember exactly where we got them from, but you can find something similar at House of Antique Hardware - here is a link: http://www.houseofantiquehardware.com/cabinet-latches-small-oval-brass?sc=11&category=111

Ho about the cabinets themselves? The large blue hutch specifically. Must be custom. Can you tell me about it? I would like to aim for something as nice in my soon to be small bungalow redone kitchen….
