e{Design} Tuesday - An Elegant Wet Room Bathroom

The design process has many stages, but one of the most fun is the conception stage. Since this stage is all about pulling together the details that will result in the final look, I like to share those design boards here on the blog (with my client's permission) in the hopes of inspiring you as well!

Today, I'm sharing a design board I created for a primary bathroom renovation. Although we still have some space planning elements to figure out, the client was excited to get a sense of the finishing touches. The room will ultimately have a wet room feel, so tile will play a huge part.

This bathroom really will be all about the finish touches. The cane wrapped mirror, shaded sconce and white washed vanity have so much character! We are focusing on a lot of white with black accents (so classy) and everything will be tied together with some beautiful framed art, a vintage rug (similar) and a classic teak stool.

But , as I mentioned, the tile is where we really have to get it right. This bathroom will be a wet-room-style bathroom, which means that the tile could end up encasing all four walls (floor to ceiling) and cover the entire floor (not just the shower pan). And although the tile in this vision board looks amazing on paper, we are still waiting on samples to come in to figure out if this is a match made in heaven. I like to use sites like Floor & Decor to get an idea of a direction for tile for a project like this, but nothing beats seeing the real thing in person. Below, I'll link the two tiles in this image as well of a few others we are considering and have ordered samples of.

From the vision board: walls & floor

Other wall options: Something with a cooler tone (to go along with the grey hex below), or something a bit warmer with less marbling (to let the marble floors take center stage)

Other floor options: Grey hex, or Porcelain wood-look tile (laid in a herringbone pattern)

Here are a few pics we used as tile inspiration:

As the samples come in, I'll be sure to show my process for figuring out which ones will work best together over on my instagram (you can follow me here). I've also received a few requests for how to select tile pairings, so I'll be doing a blog post about that next week... stay tuned!
