Bathroom Update 2.0

Our bathroom renovation is majorly underway! The prep and demo work is basically done and the actual tile work should start tomorrow. It’s amazing to see the progress since last week

{at the end of last week, our tile contractor had shimmed out the framing of the bathroom to ensure the walls would be flush and level. He also laid out the coils for the in-floor heating and poured cement to set the shower base.}

{on Monday I had to make a trip to the slab "graveyard" and pick out a large-ish slab of marble to be used for the threshold into the bathroom, as well as the curb getting into the shower, the shelving in the built-in storage niches and the window sill. the contractor advised this so that all of those surfaces would be the same look, since marble can appear very different. It was an undertaking since all of the slabs in this photo were stacked up next to each other and they were not easy to handle.}

{Here is the slab I picked out. it is placed next to the hexagon tile that will be on the floor. I'd say it's a good match!}

{Over the weekend we painted some swatches of different colors we are deciding between. What's your favorite??}
