Remodel Update - Getting Closer :)

It's been a little while since I've shown pics of the remodel.  Both baths have now been completely tiled and grouted.  The sinks, lighting and switches are all in.  Just waiting for shower doors, toilets, mirrors and towel rods/toilet tissue holders, knobs & handles for the cabinets.  The latter few things I still need to purchase.  Following are some photos, the lower bathroom first, then the upper:

Floor is the same tile as the bathroom floor but cut to 4" and also placed 'on point', granite, glass & stone border tiles, ceramic wall tile.

I need to get light bulbs...the one shown is the contractor's work bulb.  The package was missing one of the decorative nuts that holds the base plate to the wall so I had to call the company and they're sending me one :)

The light through the window affected the flash and this is from the doorway, so looks dark, but is really very bright, especially with lights on.

I love how the tiles reflect light.  Each tile is approx. 10" x 22".  The original design was to place them horizontally in a staggered brick pattern, but they're slightly bowed in the center and that would have left awkward ridges where the centers met the abutting rows' seams so decided to place them end-to-end, side-to-side abutted tightly - maybe 1/8th of an inch, and wow, it almost looks like a solid sheet of ceramic tile.  I think I like this better than the original plan.

These shelves look cockeyed but aren't, it's just the camera angle.


 The lighting base coordinates with the shape of the sink. 

A little more work needs to be done on the handle, because the walls were so out-of-plumb, the tiler had to float the walls pretty thickly which affected the depth available to attach the handle to the pipe/valve already in place.

Ssshhhhh, you don't see that washcloth and the toothpaste ;)
Field tile flooring set 'on point'.

Regulations here require an occupy sensor comes preset from the factory for 30 minutes before it goes off.  Note to government:  Stop trying to control every aspect of my life...I know how to turn off a light! And I don't wait 30 minutes! And I still turn it off.  Rant over.
