    what are the dimension of the shower? Is the tub jetted or air?

    I used Sicis Crocus Iridium in my shower's niche as well as the tub surround and it's gorgeous.

    You have a wonderful taste! :)

    Wow that shower is really awesome. I like how it has bench and shelves. So many times the bench turns into the place that's overcrowded with products and shampoos. I like to actually use the bench for sitting.
  • marge673

    I love how the tub and shower flow. Also love the bench in the shower. We plan to incorporate this look. We have high gloss porcelain tile in the kitchen. Tile setter warned against getting it wet and slipping. I would not want a slippery tile in the tub, grout or not. In fact, I like larger tiles; not a fan of grout lines. Grout doesn't age well; tends to look grungy after a while IMO.

    Typically, glass mosaic tiles have large grout lines which will be filled in with sanded grout. The ratio of the relatively small glass surface area to the larger surface area of the sanded grout will usually result in a shower floor that is not very slippery. That being said, there are glass tiles that have small grout lines and in these cases the glass tile would be slippery.

    I am assuming that the doors are made from a textured glass unless it is simply clear and the glass mosaic tile on the wall is just making it look textured.

  • cineus
    I believe it is just clear. I think it's the tile reflecting making it look like a textured glass. If you look at bottom where there is no reflection it looks clear. Usually 3/8" tempered glass with polished edges. Hardware is your choice.

    Also, just an idea,,, If anyone uses Antique Glass, like i believe this picture is, use a "brassy" finish with it along with tan and neutral colors. This REALLY dress's up the glass and makes a big difference. I know brass is not a finish that is favored at the moment, but Antique Brass and Oil Rubbed Bronze (the light colored one) make this glass pattern really stand out. I know it sounds a bit strange, but chrome, brushed nickel, satin chrome and stainless steel really makes the pattern in the glass almost disappear! Try it and you will be amazed in the difference!
  • barbav
    stevie, what is antique glass? I love the a.brass and bronze fixtures so I'm curious about the glass. Thanks.

    Casa Dolce Casa has a collection named Casamood. The style is Vetro Neutra in the color Avorio Lux . It is not as glimmering as the pictured tile but it gives produces a similar mood.

    I have done lots of glass tile and if you use the diamond bits with just a bit of lubricating oil, you can do just about anything to the glass tiles. I prefer the 3in1 oil but any thing will work just fine. Good luck! Sean Strong

    I have a terra cotta floor in my bathroom and have been looking for a shower tile to complement it. This looks like a possibility. What is the name of the tile and where can I find it? Thanks.

  • megildea
    I have iridescent glass tile in my shower and it doesn't get water spots. Oceanside Glass Tile is probably used in this application.

    Use the same squeegee tool that is used on the glass each time and mold is less likely to grow.

    Hi, What is the width of the shower/tub area and what is the length from the faucet wall of the shower to the far end of the tub. This is just what I would like to do but I only have 8 feet of length and 4.5 ft of width.

    There is one main limiting factor in this design and it is the width of the bathtub. Bathtubs range in standard sizes but mainly are found in 30" or 36" sizes. The shower curb width can be from 4"-6". The door sizes can vary depending on accessibility requirements or comfort requirements. The last dimension to consider when designing this space is the turning radius or width between the bathtub and shower and the sink and/or linen closet which is probably on the parallel wall.

    Assuming 8' ceiling height, you will need around 90sqft, including some overage (the amount of overage will depend on the type of tile)

    You may be able to make a pretty good estimate by using the tiles as a context clue.

    My guess would be about 5' L x 4' W

    I definitely don't think you ever have to do anything that you don't want to. Forget about rules, and do what you want. If the shower and tub are on the same wall, I would think about keeping a stripe of the tiles going? But then again, that might look too forced too. I think that like using different materials and textures in the rest of the house, think about tiles and materials that complement each other another way. If you want to have a different tile for your shower than bath, then try to keep the colors similar.

    ....At least, that's what I would do. Let's see if our bath experts can expand on my bathroom tile knowledge.
