Over the past two weeks I have been very busy managing a Master Bathroom renovation. If you’ve been following me on Design Tea Live, I have been giving viewers a behind the scenes perspective of the shower remodeling process. In my latest live I discussed my thought process behind the tile and hardware selections for my client’s shower.

I’m excited to share more images of the progress that has been made so far!
Here is an image of my client's shower and bathtub before we began construction. My clients wanted to convert their traditional tub and shower into a luxurious spa oasis walk-in shower.
Once the original bathtub and shower hardware were removed a space was prepared for the shower pan. The shower pan is a water-proof barrier made of fiberglass, acrylic, metal, stone or ceramic. Once the shower pan is level it is then placed in the space and screwed to the wall. Afterwards, the shower walls can be built around it.
I decided to use Carrara marble on the shower walls. Carrara marble has a beautiful bright white to grey background with subtle blue-grey veining. Before installing the marble, we laid out each piece to ensure that the pattern on each tile would match accordingly and look its best. If you look closely at the veining on each tile, the pattern creates a “V” or a book match pattern. I also instructed the tilers to install the tile using 1/16th grout lines so that my clients won't have to spend a lot of time cleaning them in the future.
I designed a custom 12”x20” niche where they can easily store their soaps, shampoos, conditioners etc.
As an accent I chose a linear glass tile to be installed from floor to ceiling creating a tile waterfall design, which turned out to be absolutely stunning!
