Almost there!

It's really amazing. I almost have nothing left to do and I still have one work week and two weekends before the contractor starts work. The most recent development was today. I just picked up my floor tile and I like it even more than I imagined.

Here's a photo of the floor tile with a few tiles of the shower tile, the vanity door, and the sink faucet. I like the way everything looks together!

(Alana in Canada... I may end up putting white contact paper on the inside of the frosted glass if I find that it looks too messy.)

Summary of this week's accomplishments:
  • Floor tile arrived
  • Matching towel bars, TP holder, and glass shelf ordered
  • Toothbrush holder purchased
  • Saw my contractor featured on television news (a feature on green design)! Good thing I've already got a date set for my job!

I was just wondering what color grout you will be using, and if you will use the same color or different color of grout for the walls and floor. Everything looks pretty good together. Your new bathroom is going to look great.

Very nice! And frosted glass is surprisingly good at "hiding" things--I hadn't thought so until I saw what cqindc did to her kitchen:

I'll try that one more time: cqindc kitchen

Thanks for all the nice comments!

As far as grout color, I like the idea of using a gray grout for both the floor and the wall. Something with just a little bit of contrast from the floor tiles.

But I also think you can't go wrong with white grout on the walls. I do know from experience that I don't want white grout on the floors-- it can look so dirty and grimy down there.

Any thoughts?

I like the idea of a grout colour close to the actual tile. I like my graphics subtle--the focus is the tile, right? Not the grid.

I think you are on the right track with the grout colors. Light grout on a floor gets dirty looking too quickly. As for the walls, I think either will look good.
