Hi nyc_designer,

I agree with you, on reflection I think this is an 8x16".

To be honest which is why we stock the subway tiles in 4x12", 6x12" 8x16", 9x18" and 12x24" then we have everyone covered.

Then we match it all up and make sure the customers gets the perfect bathroom. This bathroom is amazing. But people just post pictures then leave Houzz.com and have no further interest. Why they post it, I have no idea.

Carrara Venato 6x12" Subway Tile Wall $8.00 a Square Foot

Venato 6x12" with customer having specially cut 4x12" and a 1x3" Herringbone Mosaic Honed on the Floor is $11.45 a Square Foot.

Do you have stock? Is asked a lot so we make sure to include that on the product page, but with over 2 million square feet in our warehouse "Generally" we can cope with most domestic projects. (Prices valid thru 2016) Online exclusively through www.thebuilderdepot.com Venato Collection.

How do you treat the marble in a steam shower? Is it possible to keep it this beautiful? Or better off using porcelain?

Grout thickness is a personal choice. We recommend you chose that once you have the tiles in front of you on the floor. It will vary on the color tone of this natural stone.

carrara tile is beautiful but is it okay to use in a shower? - I have read comments on this web site from tile experts who claim that carrara tile should not be used in chronically wet areas of the bathroom because the naturally occuring iron in it can be brought to the surface by moisture causing orange stains. They claim that sealing the marble will not prevent this from happening. What are you thoughts on this?

I just recently put carrera basketweave on my steam shower floor. I have not used the shower yet, but their appears to be a problem with the shower floor. There are two drains in the shower floor. The areas around the drains have remained wet and there is an area in the corner of the shower that remains wet a week after water was run in the shower. Also, some of the dark dots in the basketweave have like disappeared. What do you think is the problem? I am thinking the problem is under the marble. I welcome all comments.

My bet is it's your shower pan, I had the same issue, now I'm doing a 70K remodel, hope you had a reputable contractor that will come back and fix it.

They look to be 9x18" tiles; if they were 6x12" tiles, the shower would only be 5.5' tall! If they were 12x24" tiles, it'd be 11' tall.

Since 9x18" tiles are a bit uncommon, consider cutting more common 18x18" tiles down to the 9x18" size.

Is it better to use larger tiles(12x24) in a smaller space or do smaller look better?

I believe this is Carrara Venato Basketweave. It has a whiter base which is identical to this in the picture. We offer one online for $10.95 sq.ft. as part of the Carrara Venato collection. http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/venato-carrara.html

size of tile - I can't find the answer to the tile size used in shower. Is it 6 x 12 or larger? My shower is not as large and wanted to compare for scale purposes. It looks so right in this size space.

I believe It is Carrara Venato 12x24". They have purposely selected a whiter based marble with less veining than the classic Bianco Carrara. The whiter based stone coupled with the larger format tile tiles creates a less busy and overall cleaner look. We offer the very same tile in polished and honed for $9.95SF http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/cama12x24honed.html

We also offer the same type of Basketweave (pictures attached) for $10.95SF http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/venato-carrara.html

We are installing two because my husband is almost a foot taller. Right now I have to adjust the placement every time I get in the shower, and it's hard to reach. Now I have my own, and it's a lower height.

Oh, right, that does make sense! I've never thought of that - I'm at least a foot taller than my wife, and until now she's always had to contend with water droplets falling on her head from a dizzy height! Maybe we can change that, seeing as I am busy planning a bathroom and shower renovation! Thanks for the idea!

It is most likely honed; polished tile floors are typically not recommended as shower floors because their slip factor makes them unsafe.

It is actually a misconception that honed is better than polished for a shower floor. Don't get me wrong in larger tiles yes, but not in the Basketweave mosaic pictured above. The traction (or friction coefficient to get technical) is pretty much identical between polished and honed Basketweave mosaic as it is the grout that provides the traction.

And as the grout is identical between polished and honed the traction or anti-slip is the same. So the choice of polished or honed comes down to personal preference.

We sell both in a Carrara that has the same white base as the picture above (we have attached our product images). You can buy in either polished or honed for $10.95SF from http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/venato-carrara.html

This tile is all different variations of Bianco Carrara marble. Any number of manufacturers carry products similar to this. Walker Zanger has been around for over 55 years and has a line called "Tribeca" which has lots of Carrara available.

Beautiful shower! I wasn't sure if the exact size of the tiles on the shower wall were given. Are they 9 x 18 or a different size? I love the look of the large staggered horizontal tile and would like to do this in my new bathroom renovation but now sure if it will work in my shower which will be smaller. The only large rectangular tile in the pattern I chose is 12 x 24 and I am afraid that will be too large for a shower that will be about 3'5" wide x 5'9" long with a 12" deep bench. They also have a 13 x 13 and 18 x 18 but not sure how it would look with square vs rectangular.

Although I don't know for sure, my thought would be 9" x18", based on the shower bench. 12" would be a bit shallow for a bench seat, and there is a full width of tile used on the end face.
Perhaps the designer or homeowner could comment....

A white vinegar solution will help clear up a hazy film of soap scum. Dampen a cloth with white vinegar and move from top to bottom on your glass shower door. Then rinse thoroughly with your shower spray.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Airy Bathrooms See the Light
8. Don't forgo white marble. For a classic feel, nothing beats elegant white marble. Sure, a full marble shower like this one is luxurious, but for a similar effect on a tighter budget, skip the ceiling and choose an inexpensive white tile for the floor.

Glamour Nest added this to Does Your Home Make You Happy?
If what you need is more romantic time with your partner, set up your bedroom to induce that behavior. The space should be a sanctuary, so you and your loved one can be intimate and relaxed. If you have a big budget, you could get a large shower with two showerheads — perfect for sharing. Yowza! Less-expensive options include a great mattress and comfortable sheets, walls painted a cozy color, linens spritzed with a fragrant spray and some fancy candles.
Bonnie McCarthy added this to How the Heck Do You Clean a Glass Shower Door?
Squeegees and Microfiber ClothsA squeegee is a windshield-wiper-like tool with a handle and a long, flat rubber blade used to clean or remove something (in this case water) from a surface.Some squeegees have suction cups for attaching to walls for easy access and storage, while some come in colors or stainless steel for the style-conscious. Do they all work the same? In a nutshell, yes.
Sam Ferris added this to Your Guide to Shower Floors
The many shapes and styles of marble allow you to create brilliant texture-on-texture contrast. This traditional shower space complements the brick wall tile with a basket-weave-patterned floor, which adds subtle contrast to the design.
