Porcelain Time and Other Features in Master Bath

Carl Christianson

The porcelain tiles used in the master bathroom are Florida Legend in Olympic color. They are manmade although they appear to be slate. To give the room continuity and yet give it a distinctive flair different sized tiles were used. 18” tiles were used on the shower walls and also on the bathroom floor. Above the 18” wall tiles in the shower is a complementary accent of 2” United Desert Gold Quartzite slate and then 12” square tiles. A 2”x2” Florida Legend tile was used on the shower floor. The grout was Almond Accu color #984. The shower is handicapped accessible without a door or threshold. Two Grohe Arden shower heads and controls were installed with matching sink and tub faucets. An ADA approved white slatted phenolic folding shower seat was attached to the back wall. The seat can be folded up for ease of cleaning. A built in shampoo niche adds a distinctive accent. A Fiber Fab 710 jetted soaking tub with tile skirting and a Toto Drake 2 flush option ADA toilet complete the fixtures. A 4’x4’ skylight plus two large windows provide plenty of natural light in the master bathroom. The vanity countertop as well as window sills throughout the addition are composed of Caesarstone man-made silica composite material. The custom cabinetry was built with a recessed area under one sink so that a wheel chair can access the sink.
