    The grout is Victorian WHITE? Doesn't look white. Is that right? What color is the Dirk Elliott tile, too, please?

    Yes, the layering up of quality materials by a professional with experience will make the difference between success and failure. Improper installation, poor materials selection and quality could all end in disaster.
    Hope that helps!

    Hello Monika,

    Actually, I wanted to answer your question four months ago, however I simply forgot.

    The answer to your question is pretty simple. However, to accomplish the solution it needs the qualification of a pro. First of all, NO tile surface is watertight, and you can actually not avert that water goes behind your tiles, which means sooner or later more or less water or at least humidity will reach the tile-backer. Proper grouting and the use of silicone keeps the majority of water away from getting behind your tiles; however, it makes your tile installation not watertight! Only a few special grout types are less water imperviously than regular cement grouts.

    Therefore, you have to waterproof the tile-backer in wet areas AT ALL TIMES !!! I know that sounds strange for most people however this is the only approved way to avoid water damage. There are many waterproofing solutions on the market and most of them to exactly what they invented for. Once a shower is properly water proved you can have hundreds of showers without having the tiles ever installed. The tiles are only installed for three reasons.

    ► The tiles are protecting the waterproofing system against damage.
    ► A tiled shower looks better.
    ► Tiles are easier to clean.

    Without knowing more information about your project, It is pretty hard to tell you which waterproofing system in your particular case would be the most appropriated.

    That is a 6 inch diameter traditional shower rose head on an 8 7/16 inch wall shower arm from Rohl.

    The tile in the back of the tub/shower alcove reaches 5 feet 9 inches above the finish floor before it slopes up to the ceiling of the shower - which is at 6 feet 11 1/2 inches above the finish floor.
    Hope that helps!

        The Home Editor: City & Small Space Consulting added this to Subway Tile Picks Up Gray GroutFeb 28, 2012

        Smith & Vansant Architects have tiled this shower-tub enclosure with off-white subway tiles on both the walls and the ceiling — a smart move for durability.

        Like the horizontal application but want to do something special? Use a dark grout. Even easier to keep clean looking than white grout, some people love it, some people hate it. The dark grout lends an Old World air to any subway tile motif, making it pop and giving it extra dimension.
