When deciding what type of flooring to install in our bathrooms, Blaine and I looked for options that would relate to the age of the house and look better over time going forward.
For fun, I pulled up some of our old photos to remember what sort of flooring existed in these rooms before we started demo back in 2015.
Our tile was delivered late last summer, and we’re finally done installing it today! 🙂
Before laying the new tile, HardieBacker Cement Boards were installed. This underlayment will provide a good foundation for the tile floors.
Last October, we laid the penny tile in the upstairs guest bath.
Here is the finished floor today:
Notice we also installed marble thresholds at each hardwood – tile transition. I think this little detail makes for a more finished look.
The master en suite bathroom floors got the Basket Weave, which is my favorite.
With the help of my Dad, we installed Octagon tiles in the downstairs bathroom over Christmas break.
We added the final covering of grout today – all done! (Except, I will seal this floor tomorrow. I’ve sealed the other two floors already with this.)
We used TEC Power Grout in the color “Sterling” for all three marble floors, which is a shade of light gray. For reference, we also used TEC’s Full Flex Premium Thin Set Mortar for these tile projects.
Whew, that’s one more project checked off our to-do list!
Just before the sun went down this evening, I went out for a walk with the dogs while Blaine cleared the drive. Having lived in the Deep South for several years, I forgot how nice it is to have the ground blanketed in pretty white snow.
