Most of you may know I purchased my first home a few years back and ever since, I rolled up my sleeves and took on fixing up the entire house. We have done everything from wall removal to window replacement, and beyond. The time has finally come to create a master bath we can finally enjoy after all our hard work. For this awesome project, I teamed up with The Home Depot and Marazzi tile to show you all from a professional’s perspective how to install tile to last and how choosing the right tile can add value to your home. If you are a DIY’er, contractor, or just a homeowner looking to have your bathroom re-done, this video will show you what to look for to make sure it’s being done properly! - Porcelain tile has many benefits including; non-porous, smooth and resilient surface, unmatched design versatility, etc. Pair all those benefits with the new Marazzi EpiClean Antimicrobial line which has all those listed benefits AND has built in antimicrobial product protection. This is perfect for high traffic areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms, etc. because it eliminates up to 99% of surface bacteria to fight against stain and odor causing bacteria that can grow on floors. Check out the progress below :)
My mood board for this project:
To offset all the grey cool tones, I added I went with a natural wood floating vanity to create more of a timeless appeal.
** the towel shiplap wall has changed from white to black !!!**
Master Bath recovery
I got the awesome opportunity to partner with The Home Depot on this project and be a part of their Marazzi Epicclean campaign.
This was the visual when walking into the bathroom. I hated this. Its so cramped and crowded. I decided to remove the toilet patrician wall, and remove the floor to ceiling cabinets behind the vanity. (this is where my new towel wall will go). I also thought it would be nice to reduce the bump out (blue arrows) to even more open up the space and make it more visually appealing.
I also opted to remove the fur downs from above the vanity. ( aka wasted space) I never understood these.
Now you can see how much more open the room is and gives your eyes a clear place to look. The bump out on the left side is still not removed here. I thought I had a photo but I didn't grab one. Keep your eyes peeled, you will see it makes a difference in the next few photos.
Time To Tile:
** Follow along my entire installation, gain some tile install tricks, and learn more about working with the Marazzi brand tile on my Youtube channel. linked here **
I used the EpicClean Milton Arabescato Marble 12 in. x 24 in. Glazed Porcelain Floor and Wall tile from Home Depot laid in a straight pattern. Linked here.
The setting material I used was ProLite 30 lb. White Tile and Stone Mortar. Linked here.
Once completed, grouted, let dry, and was ready to move on to the next phase. ( here is where you can see the left side bump out wall was reduces allowing even more space and openness in the room.
For the shower pan tile, we chose EpicClean Milton Arabescato Marble 12 in. x 12 in. Glazed Ceramic Mosaic Tile (1 sq. ft. / piece). Linked here. It is a perfect compliment for the main area floor tile and continues that modern, clean feel.
The shower walls were tiled withModern Renewal 12 in. x 24 in. Iron Glazed Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile (15.6 sq. ft. / case. Linked Here.
The 3x5 space was perfect for the vertical layout on a straight lay. The space doesn't look like its former self. Below is just a sneak peak of the shower details, I will be releasing part two soon and going over more of the finished product.
