Here are a few before and after pictures with the drywall and tile installed. Wood-look tile is everywhere right now but I’m okay with joining the bandwagon. It’s one of the more realistic looking styles I’ve seen, and I’m a big fan of the 4 ft length. I had wanted to use this project to improve my tile skills, but it became unrealistic at 7 months pregnant. We did find a fantastic guy to set the tile, who was meticulous about mixing up the patterns and perfectly leveling each one, so I’m very happy with the results.
I didn’t really like the idea of having a master closet in a bathroom for moisture reasons, but moving the wall was a bit more of a financial commitment than I was willing to make for this house.
The Hardiebacker has also been installed for the shower walls. We added two recessed niches for storing soaps so we wouldn’t need any type of hanging organizer.
Next stop, drywall taping and texture.
