Y’all, the master bathroom floor is finished!! The whole thing, from the shower to the toilet area and through the main area of the bathroom. It’s finished. And it’s just so pretty. I used the Kolasus White Matte tiles from Home Depot in the 12″ x 24″ size for the main area of the bathroom floor, and for the toilet area and the shower floor, I used the Kolasus White Matte tiles in the 2″ x 2″ size (which come in a 12″ x 12″ size mounted on mesh).
I absolutely love the subtle veining in the design. It looks light and clean (perfect for a bathroom) with the light gray marbled veining to give some interest to the tiles.
I was able to finish it up yesterday, and the grouting of the main part of the bathroom went very quickly. That’s the great thing about using such large tiles. In fact, the little toilet area probably took me the same amount of time as the main part of the bathroom took me.
And as always, it was so satisfying to see the difference that group makes.
Grouting is always my favorite part of tiling because it makes such a huge different. Grout is magical. 😀 Just look at the difference between the grouted and ungrouted areas…
I can’t even express to you how glad I am to have this project DONE! I’ve been dragging it out just because I dreaded it so much.
This was my first time ever to tile with large 12″ x 24″ tiles, and I’ll be quite honest. I hated it. 😀 I mean, I really hated it.
I got better as I went along, and the process didn’t seem so horrible once I was about halfway done. I kind of got into a rhythm, and it got easier as I went along. It still wasn’t pleasant, and it was far from fun. But it did get a little easier.
But having it done feels like a huge weight off of my shoulders now, and I’m anxious to move on to other projects, like getting the cabinets built in the toilet area, and installing the trim in the whole bathroom.
The small tile in the toilet area and the shower is my favorite, though. I love the subtle color variations in that floor.
Part of me wishes that I had used that small tile on the entire floor just because I love it so much, but on the other hand, I can’t even imagine having to take care of all of that grout in the large main area of the bathroom.
So I think the combination of the two — the large 12″ x 24″ in the main part of the bathroom and the small 2″ x 2″ in the shower and the toilet area — was the best decision. And it’s done. It’s DONE, y’all!! IT’S DONE!! 😀
