    I believe we specified Benjamin Moore Pearl Gray 863, out of the Classic Color color deck. The homeowner took care of hiring the painter, so it is remotely possible that they changed the spec, but it looks like Pearl Gray.

    we used white on the walls and grey (I believe it was Delorian Grey) on the floor. I often do this, because the grout is the first thing to look dirty on a tile floor. With natural color stone or porcelain, I pull out a color one shade darker than the medium tone in the tile.

Can you please tell me what size tile was used around tub and on walls. Thank you.

    Hello birdiee,

    Tiles have most common sizes measured in mm. Only a couple tiles produced in the USA and Mexico have sometimes imperial sizes.

    A single mosaic tile like the accent / ornamental border is usually 25 mm x 25 mm (1"x1") and sometimes 20 mm x 20 mm (13/16 x 13/16) Which is the case here.

    So when you count the mosaic tiles, there are ca. 7 pcs. per 1 white tile. 7 x 20 mm + 140 mm + 7 joints x ca. 1 mm + 7 mm in total = 147 mm. So the wall tiles are ca. 150 mm x 150 mm or in imperial: 6" x 6" (nominal)

    Here is another way to calculate it: A bathtub is usually about 750 mm wide. You can count 5 tiles above the tub. 750 mm : 5 tiles = 150 mm

    So the size of the tiles is most likely 150 mm x 150 mm (6" x 6")

    If you have any further questions or if you need any advise, we will be glad to help you.

    Regards,

    yes, that was a 4" by 8" tile. I have used the one by American Olean for a couple of projects, and it is one of the most reasonable ones I have found. Several tile manufacturers make this size.

    Could you explain that more? Are you saying there is no bullnose the entire verticle edge? The edge tiles appear to be wider than a simple 1/4 round tile trim. Any chance that you have a closer shot of that transition? It really is nice.
  • PRO

    the tile is on concrete backer board so it is a 1/4 round rather than a bullnose. Does that help? I could try and go past their house, but don't know how soon I could do that and get a picture up.

    Finally dug out my drawings-
    That little bathroom was approximately 6' 4" by 7' 6".
    The tub runs along the shorter wall, with a tall cabinet filling the space between the foot of the tub and the wall.
    The door is opposite the tub, and the long wall leading from the door wall to the tub wall has the pedestal sink- about 24", the toilet about 36" with clearance, and then the shower over tub, about 30" wide.
    Hope that helps everyone.

    http://www.houseplanshelper.com/small-bathroom-floor-plans.html - see the image on the left. My personal dimensions are from door opening to outside wall = 6'6". Width of room is 5'8" - Tub runs width of room with a window above it (19" from one wall, 17" from the other). Toilet sits between 24" vanity and tub with a over the john cabinet on wall above toilet. Regular ceiling height - no room behind walls and we've already redid bathroom down to bare outside walls when we remodeled over 20 years ago.

Where is storage

  • PRO
    Sustainable Home
    The bathroom was 8 foot wide on the bathroom wall. From the foot of the tub to the wall is a custom built in cabinet. Interestingly enough, it was designed with an open space at the base, partially covered by louvered doors, just excactly the right size to hide the cat box. So this bathroom is the toilet for many members of the family.

    Hi Ssnap,
    Actually, I have used several slightly different shades of white in bathrooms in the past. It often happens that porcelain used in the sink and tub shade of white is not the exact shade of the tile. Since the tub and sink only come in that one white, it ends up not exactly matching the floor or wall tile. This often happens in kitchens too, the white appliance, or the porcelain sink are not exactly the same white as the tile. I personally think that it all reads as white, do not find it jarring. How you react to this differs slightly. Do you think that every time you look at this, you will notice that they are not exactly the same white, and get bugged? If not, I would go for the tile you like. The gloss tile is more slippery for a floor, and thus less safe.
    I have white wall tile and white floor tile in my bathroom (not this picture, this is a client) also, and did use a grey grout on the floor. I used Delorean Grey on the floor and white grout on the walls. It is a good idea, both because it will help create a different look for the floor, and because the floor grout is the first thing to look dirty. I always suggest a darker grout for the floor, to keep the grout from looking grimey over time.
    Also, don't forget to seal your grout, and reseal every year.
    Best of luck with your project.

    In this bath we only put the mosaic in the tub area, but it was kind of echoed by the black and white tile on the floor. In your bath I would not want to emphasize the length of the room by having a long horizontal on the chair rail. Have you already laid the floor? If not, I think it might be a good idea to add the similar accent between the corners of the tiles on the floor, or as an accent on the floor.

    And, keep in mind, that the real color may be VERY different from what you see on your monitor. You may have your monitor set to warm or cool and that changes the colors greatly. Also, the gamma of the monitor may change the colors, and Windows computers have a different gamma curve than Apple.

    You really cannot judge a color on a monitor.

    Good morning! We are interested in adding cupboards in our kitchen area. Our style is the raised panel maple glazed sorrel. We chose this as it seemed the traditional look is more to our style and never considered that the style might be discontinued within a few years. Since we had no notification of this, we were not able to even consider purchasing more cupboards. Is there anyway you can help us with to add more storage? Thank you for your help.

    Sincerely,
