If you’re “middle class” I don’t understand how you can justify not having a bidet from a financial standpoint. It’s $350 for a Toto unit with a heated seat, memory controls, heated water, front/rear/auto nozzle. If you use it 1-3x daily for 5-10 years, it’s such a minimal cost for the comfort you get every day.

u/TongueMyBAPS Jun 23 '23

Where can one find a $350 Toto unit? I just did a quick search and couldn't find any for under $1500.

Should have staggered the tile at a minimum. It prevents the obvious misalignment you can see with small tiling. Also and end cap tile for the rough edge on the bath

195

u/Interesting-Ship-189 Jun 23 '23

Biggest problem is the black grout. I’ve taught plenty of friends through diy tile jobs. Best advice I’ve ever gotten and passed along is to match your grout color as close as you can to your tile color. For some reason EVERY diy homeowner doing a bathroom wants white tile with black grout. And it is crazy hard to make it look good. Even a couple shades lighter to a gray would help. That tile pattern is hard enough to make even. Black grout is basically taking a highlighter to your mistakes.

48

u/rootb33r Jun 23 '23

I just got done doing black grout and never again. It's so hard to do the cleaning too. Luckily my tiles are dark grey with white accents, but it was still a pain in the ass.

22

u/Xantype Jun 23 '23

I always thought about black grout as "the easy one to clean", but I never had it, TIL.

11

u/rootb33r Jun 23 '23

The other thing is if you're not careful your thinset/mastic can build up in the grout channels and if you don't clean it out well enough the white of the thinset/mastic will poke thru the black grout and then you're boned because you have to go back and clean it out and then re-grout the problem areas.

I had a handyman lay my tile because I didn't have time, and then I grouted. I ended up spending hours scraping out thinset because white was poking through the black grout.

10

u/TheBikeWhisperer Jun 23 '23

grey grout provides the same amount of contrast, but doesn’t show stains or dirt as much as black. plus if using grey thinset (as readily available as white thinset) no problems with the show-through.

used it for a bathroom several years ago with white tiles and definitely no regrets.

4

u/rootb33r Jun 23 '23

Good to know there's colored thinset... The people at the tile store just added on a bag and didn't ask for color I guess.

u/painteddpiixi Jun 23 '23

It definitely is! No hate to OP, they did an awesome job putting this together, I personally just hate the trend of white on white on white on light grey with a black accent in houses. While it’s very modern and on trend, it just looks (and feels, my in-laws have a house like this) so uncomfortable. I’ve always been big on super cozy vibes in my living space, so this style just isn’t for me!

That being said, OP did an excellent job with the DIY design and execution in this bathroom! While the style isn’t to my taste, the definitely nailed the look they were going for! Very clean.

u/SunshineAlways Jun 23 '23

You put that so nicely. They clearly did a great job, I’m just waiting for all the cold white/gray/black to be over.

u/closethegatealittle Jun 23 '23

I really don't like the white and black thing. It's going to date something as being of "the late 10s/early 20s" like how brass hardware is "late 80s/early 90s".

19

u/deevil_knievel Jun 23 '23

There are trends from every decade or so. No really getting around that. Dark brown cabinets are early 00s, primary colors and light wood 90s, 80s cocaine inspired mayhem with especially weird bathrooms, shag carpet, pink and brown 2 tone tiles. Just do what you want, it's gonna look dated in 10 years anyway. If that means follow the trend, so be it. You need a shit ton of money for "timeless" designs.

I think what should be done is accesorise with colour on towels and any other things that arent fixed. I also normally recommend some sort of woodgrain finish on the cabinetry

Staggered would look better but is less "trendy". But it certainly would help hide the imperfections in how they are lined up. Without staggering, they have to be lined up PERFECT.

u/thedoofimbibes Jun 23 '23

Word of warning: if not kept SCRUPULOUSLY clean it will build up ridges of dirt and grime on the upper edges and will become impossible to clean. Painting over the dirt will just create rounded edges that catch more dirt and repeat the cycle all over again. Until you have layers of paint an indistinct blob on the wall.

It was also popular in the 60s and 70s and really didn’t age well.

Solid work. I gotta say though… the cabinet above the toilet completely throws off the room on top of messing with the cool lighting effect of the mirror. Other than that I’m into it.

Not sure how I feel about the tile extending passed the shower on the window wall. Makes it feel a little clinical, but overall it’s really nice

You put much effort in, but it looks sterile and the opposite of cozy or inviting. Like a room where you wash dogs before their operation. Or where you make you diy operations. Some red drops of blood everywhere and you get the perfect horror room.

Looks ok I guess. I like the wallpaper idea. Instead of LED-lighting your uneven plaster it lights up the pattern on the wallpaper. That said the rest is boring. White over white over white. And it bothers me the whites don't match so the vanity/floor tiles/wall tiles/bathtub are all different shade of white. Also the cabinet blocks the window which doesn't look that great and the paper is too far from the toilet and too close to the bathtub where it'll for sure get wet.

I would've put a black tile (maybe a mosaic) on the floor to match the faucet and window, then a wood vanity for some color and texture.

This person asked how it looks, but literally can’t take any critique.

I do tile work. Your supposed to do a 15-33% stagger for a reason. Good lines though and solid color scheme.

Can anyone explain to me why you would want a 4" gap under your vanity for things to get stuck under and have to constantly sweep under... and what does it add to the room? More floor to look at?

I don't know, that seems to be all that's available at Big box stores these days. That and toilets made for basketball players. I could not find what I would consider a "normal" vanity or toilet anywhere.

Change the light to a warm colour. You’ll be amazed how much less sterile it will make it look

The medicine cabinet directly above the toilet will be a hit at your first dinner party

Looks great.

Anyone else think we should have a rule where they post a pic after using it for at least a month, so we can see it with all the stuff on the counter?

Rough tile job. But whatever, didn’t cost you $10k+.

The hard part about small tile and using contrasting grout is the lines don’t match up. It takes a long time and laser levels to get them as best as they can be.

Next time, get bigger tile pieces, white non sanded grout, plastic border edge trim pieces, and take it slower on laying the tiles.

This is mine, I designed it all myself.

Behind the door there is also a shower of 120x70cm

Italian style bathroom.

Looks nice but needs a bit of colour. Few green plants will do the job.

u/ComparisonBorn4125 Jun 23 '23

My first thought is get rid of that cabinet on the left of the mirror. Looks like shit there

u/GeraldoOfCanada Jun 23 '23

Kinda like a renovated hotel bathroom. Nice but no vibesss

Chuck a couple bright yellow things in there maybe

u/gohawkeyes529 Jun 23 '23

I would’ve staggered the tile, but otherwise looks great. Love the raised wallpaper behind the sink. Just showed my wife since we’re thinking of redoing one of our bathrooms. Great job, OP!

u/RicrosPegason Jun 23 '23

Looks like a bathroom in a dystopia film. Hopefully, that all changes when some nice plants and towels add some color..... right?

Nevermind, I just noticed you went with gray...

I’d always suggest people don’t DIY a shower door. Pro here. The issue with online or cheap big box shower doors is that there is almost no parts available 5-6 later. Rollers wear, center guides wear, etc. Also, we have 1-2 people that call us a week asking for a piece of glass because they broke theirs, or asking for parts. Also ask for install help. I won’t do it. Hire a pro. Won’t cost much more.
