OH...I got off topic a little but there is a point to it. If you can't have a candle holder out of place, how well do you think he handled having an entire room literally torn apart while another room(granted an empty one) is used to store all the equipment needed to complete this job.
So here we are, the decision is made and the date is set to start the work. It's time to pick out tile.
I tend to lean more towards a bit of drama in each room. Always in a classy way but something that makes people say "Wow" . Greg leans towards the practical. He likes to keep in mind what he feels will reflect well when/if the property is sold.
His selections were all very simple. They honestly reminded me of a hotel choice. Sort of generic and bland.
I found tile that I loved. I explained to him how we should go for a "Wow" wall. One wall when you enter into the bathroom and you see through the glass doors, it just makes you go wow.
My thinking is this:
1. We will be living with this bathroom for many many years, possibly until we pass from this earth, so let's make it in a way that we will enjoy it daily.
2. If he's going to spend the kind of money it takes to update this bathroom, we really should love it.
So I find the tiles shown below and I get to convincing Greg how wonderful it's going to look when done. Initially, he wasn't sold by any sense of the word but when I put it all together and Greg asked the salesman what he thought..... Well let's just say that the salesman was impressed with my skills and Greg jumped on board. We did have to do a little juggling of the initial plan to keep it in budget. Rather than having tiling going across the wall with the sink and the commode, we kept it just in the shower.
The Wow wall tile was $25 Sq Ft. but then we found the side tile & floor & ceiling tile was only $2.99 Sq Ft. By making these changes & finding those side tiles, etc, we were able to keep the shower in budget.
