    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

  • juliaop

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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:)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:)
