Tile quality - Can anyone tell me whether the quality of the tile you buy at Home Depot or Lowe's is inferior to what you would buy at a more expensive tile store? I don't want to save money up front if it's going to cost me more in the long run!

Hi Elena, I'm not a professional but my past experiences are , porcelain all the way it doesn't chip as easy or crack as easy as ceramic also if it does chip its the same color through out, as for price it can vary low to high just try to avoid Chinese tile its cheaper but far less quality.. good luck!!...Tony

Hi Elena,

Sosio is correct that porcelain is stronger and tougher than ceramic, (less porous with a lower absorption rate is one thing that makes it stronger). However, it is not necessarily the same color all the way through (known in the industry as through-body color). Traditionally that was the case, but now many porcelains are printed on top to mimic wood or fabric. Ask at the tile shop if the porcelain you're looking at is through-body or not.

Also, ceramic is just as good as porcelain in certain applications. So for instance, if you're considering between porcelain and ceramic for a backsplash, you can easily go with a less expensive ceramic. A backsplash does not take as much abuse as a floor does. A floor tile has to stand up to weight, shoes walking across with soles that can scratch the tile and different items (such as the garbage bin) being dragged across the floor.

Lastly, in some cases it's the same tile being sold at 2 vastly different prices. This is true for a brick and mortar showroom as well as online. Do your due diligence and research the line and exactly what is included in the price. Is freight included in one price and not the other? How much is freight?

Hope this helps.

Good luck!

~Julia

Even though the tile is discountinued could I please have the name of manufacturer and name? :) - From the responses I see the tile is no longer available. I'm getting ready to put the tile in a new bathroom and I've chosen tumbled marble because I couldn't find anything which looked similar. This tile does. Even though it is discontinued, could you possibley share with me the manufacturer and name of he discontinued tile in this photograph? I can do some research on my own armed with the ansewers. Thank you in advance :)

Avalon interiors I love the Petra Latina but cannot find a local distributor. If I order off ofvthe net the shipping will kill me. Ceramic Decor I also like the anatoliatile; however, I want the tile in a crema marfil mimic and they said they wouldnt be releasing this line until next year. Thank you so much for your suggestions. I'm only a few weeks away from having to order the tile so if you come up with anything else it would be greatly appreciated. If I can't find the porcelain I want I'll have to go with natural stone, which doesn't thrill me.

What is the entire lenght of this wall and where is the plumbing? - You say that the shower is 3 feet x 5 feet, which is only a bit under a normal size bath and shower combination. Did you go into interior wall space to achieve the extra foot or so to make the cabinet/shelves? I have a bathroom that has a 6 foot tub and shower, ugly one piece thing from the 80's. Plumbing is in an 18 inch space set out from the main wall. Is the plumbing behind this wall unit?

It is a custom made cabinet. You could probably make one similar by yourself using stock cabinetry.

The border is definitely glass tile. But it is difficult to tell if the primary tile is a limestone or marble. I can tell you with confidence that it is an honed stone (meaning it was not polished to a reflective finish).

Best of luck!

Hello davetrave,

For sure the glass can be glazed ore etched. Your glass supplier should be able to etch. If not, he works mostly with somebody together who is able to etch the glass. But there are more possibilities. The new trend is to laser engrave the glass. Almost every motive is possible: Have a look for some examples:

Walker Zanger Charlotte, NC
burguera- Also keep in mind that if you are selecting your products at area businesses, they can provide you with reputable contractors that they frequently do business with. For example, if you were to come into Walker Zanger and needed a tile installer, we would provide you with 3 options of contractors that we do business with on a regular basis and let you receive quotes from them and then decide. Most times, when a recommendation is given, the company giving it is not responsible if something does happen, but 99% of the time, if there has been an issue before, they are less likely to recommend them again. So that's one way to know you are getting genuine information.

It is not as simple as just changing the heads. The handheld shower spray requires a different assembly and different rough-ins. I recommend you hire a plumber and inquire at your local plumbing store for models that may be adaptable as your require.

Sorry just seeing this comment now. Thanks so much, glad you like the space! Yes the shower door was custom. While there are units that can be purchased ready made this was made smaller than standard tub inserts as we used some of the width for the shelving. Nothing beats custom for giving you the flexibility to do whatever you want.

I love Cape Town, have only been once but would love to come back! Sadly not anytime soon. A glass enclosure can be custom made for any size shower. Often if the shower is large enough you can do a shield without a door. I personally like frameless sliders for a more modern look. Good luck with your project!

I agree a shower shield can be a great space-saving solution. Often in small bathrooms the entire floor is tiled with a drain and the glass just helps to minimize spray.

What you dont see in this picture is the door into the shower (visible in other pictures posted from the same project). Water does not get out as the door is closed during showers. Most of my clients prefer handheld shower heads as they are great for shaving/cleaning etc.

I used repose gray by Sherwin Williams in a few of my rooms and it looks like it would match this well. It's a very pretty greige that can look either beige or gray depending on what's around it. If you want a darker shade, try Benjamin Moore's stone harbor.

Not sure what you are seeing, could be the angle of the photo but the tile is installed onto cement board and Schluter lining within the glass enclosure. Drywall is in no way in contact with water and I would not recommend doing any as such:)

Cleaning functionality is always an issue in any high traffic area. Whether it is natural stone or porcelain, as is the case here, cleaning is no different and when the tile is smooth it is easy to clean.

You need to butter it up with concrete scratch coat or adhesive to raise the height of your insert so it matches.

This is a custom glass enclosure, not just a door. Prices vary depending on overall width and height of each opening. You should budget anywhere from $800-$1500 for standard shower enclosures. Any glass fabrication company should be able to provide a rough quote to you over the phone based on your dimensions.

What material is the shower stall ceiling? - Beautiful bathroom. Love the open and closed storage. I would like to know the material that was used on the ceiling of the shower stall. Thank you for your inspiration!

Thank you! Glad you like it. The ceiling is just painted drywall. The shower did not require tile as the glass door (not seen in this photo) is shorter and allows for steam to escape. With a good exhaust fan and moisture resistant paint, a door that does not reach the ceiling is all that you need unless your ceilings are really low then I would recommend tile.

What is the strip that runs along the outside edge of glass? - Most I've seen run tile past enclosure. I have a problem with mine. Drywall outside enclosure, decaying from water seeping through caulked corners. I'm at a loss for solutions. This looks like it could be what I need. Please help! Thank you

If you are referring to the the edge where the tile meets with the wall this is a stainless metal 'U" channel. It is quite common to use this where the glass meets with the tile and drywall.Glass sits inside the channel and finishes the tile edge and is then siliconed. I have never had a problem with water seeping with this application. But I do also sometimes just silicone glass to wall without channel and have not had any problems there either. The channel is used for stability of the glass panel as well as to finish the edge of the tile.

Glass is not tinted, it is custom and it replaced a standard 5' tub. If you go to my projects and look under Shieldmark you will see other photos from this bathroom.

Typically you install the plumbing between the wall joists and dont normally have direct access to the plumbing. I this case we needed to borrow space from an adjacent bedroom closet to accommodate shelving in the bathroom so you can in fact access the plumbing from the bedroom closet. Removing the shelving would be to destructive in this case and there is an easier option. You can always make you cabinet slide in and out for easy access as well if you do not have an adjacent space. I have never found the need to have access to the plumbing from the behind the tile. By the time there is a plumbing issue it is usually time to renovate and the wall tile is coming off anyway. But there are always ways to accomodate access if desired. I normally only do that for things that require motors such as steam units and whirlpool or air jet tubs.

This question is unrelated to the photo.
The design process doesn't work on a case by case basis per room. Suggestions of colours vary depending on what rooms they are adjacent to. Meaning that if your bathroom is open to the bedroom and you already have colours in your bedroom that you are tied to then the suggestion would be to choose one from existing. For example a soft sky blue could look wonderful with your gold and oak combination but if you dont have any blue in your bedroom then I would recommend something else unless you can commit to using the blue in your bedroom as well.
Hope that helps:)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

KitchenLab | Rebekah Zaveloff Interiors added this to 7 Tile Tips for Baths on a Budget
Three rows of mosaics adds just a bit of texture and visual interest to the stone field tile in this shower. (Again, you can buy the mosaic in sheets and cut it down to 3 rows.)

What Houzzers are commenting on:

S Z added this to Guest Bath
Behind the door cabinet. Shower tile not too bad.
maureenhare added this to Condo bathroom Reno ideas
Master Bath: Linen closet would be in this location but would have less open shelves and be slightly wider. Would match vanity cabinetry (TBD) Shower head/plumbing would be on opposite wall than what is shown (ie where existing shower wand and gaucets are.) Addition of rainforest shower head. Fully tiled shower with seat. No tub
