Remodel update

Yesterday I looked for tile at Art Tile on Roosevelt and think I have found the right stuff!

For the shower wall tile, a pale green with a glossy finish.

To accent the Israeli tiles, 1x1 bright blue tiles. They'll make a border around the Israeli tiles in the shower and on the backsplash. I'm trying to decide between the matte and glossy finish. (Ignore the flash of dots on the bottom of the picture.)

For the floor tile (12x12 squares for the main floor and the same tile in 3x3 squares for the shower floor), a darker green with a slate finish so it's not slippery underfoot. Very important in a wet environment!

The extra bonus was finding a local place, Oregon Tile and Marble, that carries Jerusalem stone which we might be able to use as a countertop. I've put it next to the possible finish choices for the vanity cabinet and we have a few days to decide before ordering the vanity.

The pictures don't really do the colors justice. Now I have to call to see if we can afford the Jerusalem stone......


  1. Great model and design of tile

  2. I love Jerusalem Pottery! Your bathroom is going to look great!

    Our new kitchen cabinets are maple with a honey finish...such beautiful wood. The countertops are good ol' Formica, though. Looks really nice.
