    and what color did you use for the cabinets

    Hi Toby,

    Thanks for the series of great questions above. Sorry it took a while to get back to you on some of these. Taking your questions one at a time:

    Tile in the Bathroom: We love the look of fully tiled bathroom walls - very clean and timeless. However, a fully tiled bathroom wall will have more hard surface areas than the bathroom shown in the image above. Just a different look, so keep that in mind.

    Kitchen Flooring: You can absolutely keep the herringbone pattern on the floor and pair with white cabinets. We love the high-contrast look between dark hardwood floors and lighter or white cabinets.

    Kitchen Counter: The counter material in the image above is Calcutta honed marble. Please keep in mind that marble has higher maintenance requirements than granite or quartzite stones.

    Kitchen Cabinets: These are Walnut cabinets with a custom blended stain in a 50% sheen.

    Hopefully we were able to answer all of your questions. Let us know if you need additional information, and good luck with your project!

    How is the floating shower seat secured?

  • PRO
    dSPACE Studio Ltd, AIA

    One must account for enough steel and concrete to accommodate the weight of a person sitting on the bench.

    The marble we used is 3/4" thick with a steel support pan underneath to hold the mortar. However, behind the wall, we added a large structural steel beam to account for the overturning force due to added weight on the bench.

    This is what holds the bench in place and gives the appearance of a clean edge underneath. An engineer should be able to assist you for further development. Hope this helps.

    Hi Sabrina - Marble tile is more porous and do not hold the steam as well as say, porcelain. If you use natural stone in a steam shower, be sure and have your plumbing supplier up size the steam unit to accommodate the more porous tile.

    - Where did they hide the receptacle for the LED cove lights? (Im guessing maybe in that closet next to the shower.)
    - are the lights in the shower 4 inch?
  • PRO
    dSPACE Studio Ltd, AIA

    Hello again!

    The LED in the cove light is a wet-rated Luminii strip, which is run back to a Lutron lighting system in an A/V closet off the hall behind the bathroom. What you are seeing to the left of the shower is the door to the toilet room. The shower light is a 3" wet-rated fixture.

    Thanks - Which wet-rated tile did you use and can you confirm the size tile on the floor vs the wall (I've seen various answers to the tile size in this particular shower)? Was it honed instead of polished to help the traction?
  • PRO
    dSPACE Studio Ltd, AIA

    The tile on the shower walls and shower ceiling are 12" x 24" Calcatta which were pre-cut into 4" x 24" planks at the factory. The
    flooring inside the shower and inside the main bathroom are the full 12"
    x 24" tiles. A honed finish will give more traction, but again, confirm with your tile manufacturer or provider to be sure your desired tile and finish is acceptable in wet locations.

    Hi Vicki. Paint color will vary in different lighting conditions. For instance, LED lights can alter the perception of the paint color when compared to natural light or even fluorescent light. If possible, test various coat applications on a sample piece of cabinetry or wood. Typically cabinetry will have at least one coat of primer, and at least two coats of paint. If you plan on doing a DIY, this article may be of some help:

    Hi - thanks for the reply. How about the aluminum channel installation? How was that achieved? Just a space left by the tiler?
  • PRO
    dSPACE Studio Ltd, AIA
    Hi- Thanks noticing the details on the LED Shower light Cove. The LED tape was installed in an aluminum channel with an acrylic lens from Luminii Inc. Their website is www.luminii.com One very important note, since this is a shower it requires the wet-location rated LED tape which is embedded in a resin coating.

    The gap at the back wall of the shower is 3 inches because the electrician needs to be able to install the LED and channel 8” high into the light pocket. For the best aesthetic, try and make the gap as small as possible while keeping in mind a human hand is going to install it. Your electrician will be challenged if there isn't enough room to install the fixture.

    One final suggestion: always be sure your light cove is painted or tiled in a white finish. The light will reflect best from a white light pocket and ensuring the desired aesthetic. Good luck with your project!

    Ditta: This is a custom made shower door handle. Called a "ladder pull" style. I recommend Portals company for this style of handle. dSPACE recommends keeping the handle diameter under 3/4" to keep proper proportions. One last recommendation is to select a 16" tall handle for a nice upgrade to standard 8" and 12" lengths - the 16" makes it easier for people of different heights to use the pull. Last, and final, thought - this handle is our favorite design for showers because it looks fantastic and it is extremely functional by doubling as a towel hook. Simply hang your bath towel on the outside of the handle when showering and it is waiting right there after your shower. - dSPACE Studio - Chicago.

    Thank you for the compliment! The glass wall floats in front of the shower seat and there is a gap of approx 1/2" between the two to allow for the shower glass to be separate from the shower seat. However, the shower seat is attached to the wall on the back and the other side. The side attachment adds some additional stability to the seat, but the primary support is cantilevered from the back as you suspected and the seat attaches to steel supports inside the wall.

    Hello, and thank you for your questions. We typically used a honed finish on floor applications in wet areas, and it depends on the material we specify. Some porcelain tiles, for instance, have various finishes with specific slip rating coefficients which indicate where it can be used. So just be sure to check the with the manufacturer to be sure you can used the finish you like in a shower or wet area.


    Yes, the curb is one solid piece of 3/4" Carrara marble. The tile installer should be able to assist you with what type of grout to use depending on the application. Good luck!

    Hello, and thank you for your question! The Calcatta you see in this image is from Stone Source here in Chicago. Since this is a natural stone, the veining will differ depending on the location of the quarry and where it is sourced from. Sometimes you can get a very 'veiny' sample and a very 'white' sample, it just depends on the batch of stone from the supplier. If possible, try to see the slab in person so you can get a sense of how grey or veiny the stone is. We hope this helps, and good luck with your project.

    Hello, and thank you for your question! Marble is a porous material and will absorb moisture if it's not sealed. If you select marble for your shower, be sure to look at the sealer recommendations from the tile manufacturer to preserve the tile as long as possible. Some manufactures may require a sealant to be applied every year.

    We like to specify porcelain tile in showers because it is far less porous. But the decision is up to you! Try researching a few different products or ask your tile installer/supplier in you area. We hope this helps and best of luck with your project!

    glass installers. This handle is great looking and very functional - you
    can hang a towel on the handle for easy access after a shower. Best of
    luck with your project!

    Hello, and thank you for your question! We used Calcatta marble for all three locations in this bathroom and we
    feel that consistency in a material palette makes a bathroom feel
    timeless and serene. We don't worry about being matchy-matchy at all in
    bathrooms, in fact we feel that too many materials can lead to a busy
    and cluttered palette. However, we do love to mix up the tile sizes
    within the same material and in this bathroom we used 12x24 tiles on the
    floors and custom cut 4x24 plank tiles on the walls of the shower for
    visual interest. We hope this helps; good luck with your project.

    Hello, and thank you for an excellent question! You'll notice there are two types of lighting in the shower. The first is a LED cove along the back side of the shower, and the second is two recessed lights to the left of the rain heads.

    The LED
    tape was installed in an aluminum channel with an acrylic lens from
    Luminii. The most important note is since this is a shower, it requires the wet location rated LED tape which
    is embedded in a resin silicone coating.
    The gap at the back wall of the shower is 3 inches wide because the
    electrician needs to be able to install the LED and channel 8” high into
    the light pocket. For the best aesthetic, try and make the gap as small
    as possible while keeping in mind a human hand is going to install it.
    Your electrician will be challenged if there isn't enough room to
    install the fixture.


    The two recessed lights are also rated for showers and wet locations. Try researching CSL, Halo/Cooper or Bega products. Keep in mind some of these products are LED and some are MR-16 bulbs, so be sure to match the color temperature if you are using a LED strip light in a cove and a LED recessed light. We hope this helps, and good luck with your project!

    Hello and thank you for your question. This is indeed an tricky
    situation and one must account for enough steel and concrete to
    accommodate the weight of a person sitting on the bench and the weight of the material. The marble we
    used is 3/4" thick with a steel support pan underneath to hold the
    mortar. However, behind the wall, we added a large structural steel beam
    to account for the overturning force due to added weight on the bench.
    This is what holds the bench in place and gives the appearance of a
    clean edge underneath. An engineer should be able to assist you for
    further development. Good luck with your project!

    Hello and thank you for your question! The tile in this shower is
    porcelain and must be adhered properly. While this is a wet location and
    differs from your foyer, the same basic installation principles can be
    applied when tiling a ceiling. However, we always recommend seeking a
    local professional for such an installation for a safe and proper
    application. A local professional may screw a substrate material
    to the ceiling and apply a layer of thin set to adhere the tile to the
    substrate. There are different types of thin set, as well as modified
    and unmodified thin set, so seeking a local professional is always the
    best and safest idea. They will be able to recommend the best process per your application. Keep in mind, waterproofing will be necessary if
    the application is in a wet location, such as a shower. Finally the
    installer would grout the tile and clean the surface, allowing the proper drying time per the manufacture's instructions.

    You can use the 'Find Pros' tab here on Houzz to assist you with finding an installer. Best of luck with your project. Be sure to check out our website for more award-winning designs at dspacestudio.com, and like us on Facebook!

    Great
    question. dSPACE designed this shower to be fully tiled including the
    ceiling. The tile backer board substrate is fully coated with the liquid
    applied membrane. Our client loves their shower and the steam is perfect
    inside. A minimalist slot-type bathroom exhaust vent is located just
    outside the shower door with an in-line Panasonic fan located remotely (for
    less noise and better aesthetics with hidden fan). Because this house is
    extremely well insulated, it is best to run the bath exhaust fan for 30 minutes
    every time the shower is used to keep the humidity levels stable. Thanks for
    the good question!

    The light strip at the back of the shower is a line of LED tape installed high in a narrow cove so that the light grazes down the wall. LED tape is a great product because of its small size, and the fact that it can often be cut to length by the electrician in the field. We recommend installing LED tape in an aluminum channel to help keep the line of light straight, and in a shower its important that the product be appropriate for wet locations.

    Hi, great question. We made sure that the shower glass door is dual swinging. When you are done showering, you just keep the door open to let the shower air out. The door can swing into the shower so it remains out of the way. Yes, the shower floor is sloped toward the linear drain under the shower bench. We always try to locate the shower drains so they are not in a place where you stand. The linear drain has more capacity to drain than a typical drain.
