Bathroom - transitional marble tile bathroom idea in DC Metro with marble countertops and a vessel sink

Alexandria ResidenceTransitional Bathroom, DC Metro

Our client wanted a clean and classic Master Bath Suite. Initially, I designed 3 different options, but option 1 was a home run for the client and also my favorite based on thier wishlist. The vanity and mirror are custom made for the space with a 12 step dark stain process that allows the depth of the grain to show through. It took about 10 sample runs to get the finish just right, not too red and not too dark. We built the massive mirror to "float" off the wall so that it would visually lighten the space. The shower glass was detailed so that it appears seamless against the shower bench. We used Carerra marble throughout.

    Specifically it is Bianco Carrara 8x16" on the floor and 6x12" on the wall.

    Prices in the market vary significantly. As we are seeing by the reviews customer are leaving.

    Carrara Bianco Honed 6x12" currently $8.00 a square foot. (Also available in Polished).

    Our Carrara Bianco Collection has over 80 formats.

    Prices at Brick and Mortar Boutique Tile Stores are stuck with a lot of overhead and supply chain costs which they have to pass onto the consumer, making their prices twice the cost of ours.

    Carrara Bianco 8x16" Honed for $8.95 a square foot (also available in polished).

    Hopefully this provides a good base for looking at prices and quality.

    hi, can you provide the paint color?

    So which grade was used here as i see the veining in some pieces and its subtle in others. Is this the C grade? I would like to do 12X12 honed on my floors and maybe a 3X6 or 4X8 behind my bathtub in my guest bathroom. I don't want the veins to look too busy.

    Hi efasano10,

    It is quite difficult to be 100% sure, but to me that looks like 'C' grade. We have the sizes you mention in two collections, I would take a look at our room scene page on our blog and take it from there.

    Personally I am on the same side as you, I do not like things to look too busy. It was for that reason (as we all agreed the same) that we created an exclusive collection called Carrara Venato by selecting specific blocks and working with quarries. We wanted a white base but not a busy look, and yet still we wanted some veining. In was a tall order but I think we have done well creating something that fits close to that description. Nothing is exact in Natural Stone.

    However if you have a very specific look you need. Something you have seen and you need it to look exactly like that and you have no tolerance for anything either side of your 'dream' then I recommend going to a retail store. There you can work with someone face-to-face and pick out the tiles you need, reject others and take them home.

    Thank you

    Carrara Venato 6x12" Subway Tile $8.00 a Square Foot installed in a Herringbone format. Not easy to do. You have to over order if you plan on creating a Herringbone pattern out of loose tiles. Better to send us an email about it so we can work with you.

    Carrara Venato 3x6" Honed Subway Tile $7.00 a Square Foot also available in Polished

    Carrara Venato 12x24" Subway Tile $9.95 a Square Foot and 1x3" Stacked Mosaic Tile used on the floor for $11.15 a Square Foot.

    Carrara Venato 3x6" Polished Subway Tile Backsplash $7.00 a Square Foot

    A good rule of thumb when hanging a wall sconce is to have the middle of the fixture sit 60 inches above the floor. Every scenario is different and when hanging a wall scone, it is important to find a level that will allow the majority of the people in the particular space to enjoy the lighting from their normal positions, without suffering from the glare of an exposed bulb. If the room is used generally for sitting like a dining room, then it is best to place the sconce at a position whereby the majority of people sitting in that room cannot see the light source (bulbs) and suffer from glare. It is always important to place it comfortable as it relates to your eye level.

    My bath is similar to this one: dark cabinets, marble tile for floor, shower, and soaking tub. Question is I'm not sure what to paint the wall? I want more neutrals so the color scheme can be changed just by changing out a picture, vases, towels etc. I like gray..but not sure how dark or light to go. I will be buying benjamin paints....Any suggestions out there?

    I used BM Pale Smoke chosen by my decorator to blend the grays, whites and neutrals and it turned out amazing. Soft blue gray, very calming feel.

    It's Carrera Marble flooring. Pretty common stuff, make sure you have see a sample of the tile with your grout color. I prefer using a white that leans towards gray, however some off whites lean towards yellow. It's always best to do a sample.
  • pasqua
    Thank you, Lori, I really apreciate your response. Now I can go forward and thanks for the tip on the grout; I would never have known what to use.

    If it's not black, then it's probably espresso. Love that great big framed mirror. Anyone can do that right over their own!

    It is a multi-step stain process that we used. It was tough to get just the right finish. We found using a wood dye, then stain allowed the grain to show through yet gave us that rich deep espresso color we were going for.

    I dont remember specifically the color of gray selected. Gray especially can lean toward lavender depending on what's in the room, but more importantly the natural light. I would definitely recommend buying samples of different colors and trying them out before you commit.

    Take one photo looking at the mirror, take another photo standing in front of the mirror looking away from it. Photoshop the second photo into the mirror area, or at least the area where your face is. Pretty easy.

    I do not recommend polished tiles for floors in wet areas - a little bit slippery unless they are treated.

    Statuary Marble is basically Cararra's sister, they are mined in the same place in Italy. You can usually tell the who apart because Statuary usually has a brighter white background with more distinctive grey veining, where Cararra can appear to have a more grey body with charcoal veins. It's a bit hard to tell in this photo but I am going to guess this is Cararra since overall it seems to have a bit more grey going on and looks a bit more consistent. Hope this helps!

    The vanity was custom built by an incredibly talented woodworker. It is made of solid cherry with a labor intensive espresso stain. I designed the vanity because I couldn't find anything that was off the shelf that had the look the client and I wanted. Restoration Hardware now sells similar styles, so I suggest you check there. Best of Luck!

                                    Some elements to keep in mind when designing your double vanity are symmetry, ample counter space between sinks, a large mirror spanning both sinks (or one mirror over each sink) and lighting.

                                    Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Tricks for Updating the BathroomJan 7, 2012

                                    Swap out your mirror. Mirrors can make a big difference in any room, but they are particularly important in the bathroom, as they need to be highly functional yet also in line with the overall décor. Make sure yours is large enough for everyday tasks like shaving and applying makeup, but also check to see if it fits appropriately in the space allotted and matches the bathroom’s scheme. If not, it may be time for something new.

                                    8. Using one big mirror instead of two smaller ones gives this bathroom a punch of subtle style. Users bookmarked this photo for the modern vessel sinks and the black wood vanity.

                                    If you have a long open run, adding some symmetry will help to create an organized and balanced look to the space. Folded towels help to soften the space creating added warmth and visual comfort.
