Basement Shower: It's Tiled! — The Grit and Polish
THE RAVENNA HOUSE Due to an unexpected commute apocalypse yesterday (if you live in Seattle, you know what I'm talking about), Garrett spent the morning at home, grouting the basement shower.This is what the shower looks like now:The shower is really shaping up, right?!Wall tiles: Home Depot | Shower floor tiles: Home Depot | Bathroom floor tiles: Home DepotWe started by tiling the walls.They come with built-in spacers and as long as you start with a level first row and work up, it goes really fast.But if you're in an old house with walls that are anything but square and floors that are anything but level, then good luck.
Aside from wood, nature doesn’t feature very strongly in our house, so all the natural stone and marble options didn’t seem very much in keeping.Glass on the other hand seemed almost too contemporary for a craftsman house, so it quickly became apparent that ceramic tiles were the way to go.We didn’t, however, want to default to subway tile walls with a penny tile floor, although we do find them very American and charming.In the end we were inspired by this bathroom on Apartment Therapy that we found via Pinterest, and fell in love with the large size hexagon tiles, which seemed both contemporary and a bit different but still timeless and in keeping with the rest of the house.Much intensive searching online later, and the only 4 inch hexagon tiles we could find were these beautiful matte handmade Savoy tiles, made in the US by Crossville Inc, which come in a range of neutral colours, including white.
