    I agree with all the other comments...enclosures like this are expensive relative to the rest of the budget, but well worth it. I've installed them in every bathroom we do, and clients are always thrilled! Find a GOOD glass company in your area, and work with them on pricing, but I'd expect to pay $1500-$4000 depending on the size & shape of the shower. Good luck!

    Did you use white grout for the basketweave & if not, what shade grout? Thank you so much :)

    The quality was very much in line with the price, quite good. I know you can find a similar piece by Wood Mode if you need to see it in person. Good luck!

    This one was Pottery Barn, but I use Hudson Valley Lighting quite frequently as they can accommodate higher wattage.

    The floor is a marble basket weave. I'm always very cautious about adding an accent to classic white subway tile; I think it's distracting and can seem weary after a few years. This tile is actually beveled, which gives the wall an amazing and interesting texture. If your budget doesn't allow for beveled tile, think about using a pale grey grout with the white tile. Very pretty, adds interest, yet keeps the classic style. Good luck!
  • kathyterranova
    Thank you for your suggestion. Beautiful!

    Yes, the grout depends on the tile. I am doing my bathroom and would like to know what you did in this because it so happens to be the same as mine. Had you answered this question I would know since I don't have time to wait for a response now. Hopefully you answer this question for the next person it can benefit.

    Beveled Tile are popular but the prices are like any relatively new product (even though this is not new it is in the 100 year+ old industry or porcelain and ceramics). They can cost anywhere from $50.00 a Square Foot to $3.00 a Square Foot. The manufacturing process is the same it is a kiln fired tile.Then it is all the marketing, brand and other costs that increase it from $3 to $50.

    Instead of trying to follow the exact same overly long distribution channel and high brand marketing costs. We have chosen a ship direct, no frills marketing by no frills I mean this picture is taken in our warehouse with an iPhone.

    I think America whats the truth today. It is tired of the studio pictures and the airbrushed photoshopped images, texts and descriptions that have been proof read by $60hr proof reader teams. We have opted for a straight of the cuff writing blog and text (so I apologize for the grammar) same factory but remove all the fluff.

    We do not want the competition to hate us, just the consumer to love us. Our objective it not to support the competitors that overcharge consumers, but offer real value so people can add some value back into their homes.

    Buy a sample from everyone, get pictures before it ships. Make sure what you order is what you get. We ship fro Alpharetta Georgia and the prices are valid for 2015 currently Free Shipping on the beveled 3x6" Tile.

    Beveled 3x6" Subway Tile $3.00SF and Free Shipping for 2015 from The Builder Depot.

    As for the Basketweave I would go with our whitest Carrara Marble the Venato $10.95 a Square Foot and Free Shipping.

    Carrara Venato $10.95SF and Free Shipping for 2015.

    Or perhaps try a different mosaic with less grout lines this is a wide basketweave Honed

    Either way our Basketweave collection of over 40 products and 2 million square feet stocked in the USA will have something you are looking for.

    Sorry for the delay! It is a Benjamin Moore color 972 Alaskan Skies. Benjamin Moore has several colors in that range that work perfectly!

    Thanks for your questions! This vanity was the perfect size for a small guest bathroom. The size you need will depend on the constraints of your project. Generally, single bowl vanities come in widths between 24"-42". The cost will vary based on the wood construction, countertop, and size. Good luck!

  • Rob Kurzreiter

    where did you find this vanity?

    You should take advantage of the expertise of your contractor, and a local designer--both of whom will know how to make the best of a small bathroom. Vanities can be as narrow as 24" but you have to be careful about the size of the sink, etc. Good luck!
  • beachkitchen
    I love what you did in this classic bath. Would you mind sharing what color grout you used on the floor tile? Was it a white or gray? I am inspired and doing a similar bath in my Sandy flooded home. Also would you please share the wall color? You did a beautiful job and I am hoping for a pleasing outcome!

    I always use white fixtures, never biscuit. With a short ceiling, paint the walls and ceiling the same color, and use a pale paint--nothing too strong. I can't speak to the specifics of your project without seeing it. Best of luck!
  • pholloway
    Hello again.
    So you think it would be okay to tile half way up? The idea about the wall and ceiling sounds good. Thank you.

    It would appear that the glass is the transition point - it wouldn't make sense to have the tile extend beyond that panel unless the tile were to continue throughtout the room.

    There is a vertical bullnose tile that finishes the edge, but there are lots of ways to cleanly handle transitions between materials. I try to make sure the depth of the materials that are meeting each other is the same. Because it was a last-minute decision to remodel this room, the bathroom was done quickly, within a week or two, using mostly materials we had on site!

    It's Pottery Barn! We actually pulled this bathroom together within a week after the client decided last-minute to include it in the remodel. Good luck with your project.

    Looks like a sheet.

    Right! It is a sheet. This bath was an afterthought for the client, and was completed in 1 week, start to finish. We remodeled the master suite and children's bathrooms, then just before the contractor was finishing up, the client decided to give this small and awkwardly-shaped bathroom a facelift. The feature that was a huge liability (strange shower enclosure) became a lovely focal point with bevelled ceramic subway tiles and a frameless shower.

    Thanks for your question. It's not a custom color--the glass is standard.

    The shower enclosure itself is small and oddly-shaped. I don't have the exact dimensions; each site will have its own limitations. Good luck with your project!

    It's Carrara marble, and in this case it came with the vanity. There are several retailers that offer similar vanities: Pottery Barn, Resto Hardware, and others. Good luck!

    They may have changed the sink since this installation. Best advice: call and ask for the sink specs and then go by your local plumbing resource to see similar bowls. Good luck!

            What Houzz contributors are saying:

            The Home Editor: City & Small Space Consulting added this to Bathrooms Awash in Black and White TileMar 29, 2012

            The combination of subtle black and white floor tile, crisp subway tile and a classic marble-topped sink vanity gives this bathroom a timeless feel. Incredibly, designer Kirsten Anthony Kaplan says the bathroom was done in just a week or two, using mostly materials her contractor had onsite at the house.

            Debbie Snider added this to 15 Elements of Today's Vintage-Inspired BathsJun 3, 2011

            10. White subway wall tile. Crisp white ceramic 3” x 6” tile is a classic choice for a vintage style bath. Here is a beveled version. 11. Basketweave floor tile. Cararra and black basketweave mosaic makes an elegant and traditional floor.

            What Houzzers are commenting on:

            shannonsansom added this to BathroomJul 20, 2019

            Bottom part of the wall subway tile, and the top is painted. White/light gray tile/ color on top? How well will this go with the Onyx shower?
