Bathroom tiles

Pinned Image
I love everything about this pic & I am using it as inspiration for my dream house bathroom & ensuite
I will be having some little recessed nooks in the showers to keep all of necessities, you know, shampoo etc.
I will be using subway tiles on my walls & I love how these shelves have been framed so nicely.

I would love some shelving like this at the end of the tub.
 I really want a more low maintenance home
 Open shelving in bathrooms & kitchens really do soften a room & give a homely feel to the space, but I can only imagine how much work it would be to keep them looking nice & I don't think I will have the time for that(I will be busy working, to pay for the dream house !!!!)

Perhaps just a little something like this over the bath, a place to keep the soap, in a fabulous little dish of course & maybe a small candle

On the floor I would love a black & white basket weave style tile  which, here in Australia is going to be a little more difficult & pricier than I expected.
I may have to rethink my floors.
When I enquired at one of the local tile stores the extremely young girl that served me, looked at the pic on my phone & promptly informed me that
 "No, we don't stock those, because NO ONE would buy them!"
It was about then that I decided I wouldn't be spending my thousands of dollars on tiles in their store or using their tiler to lay them...very offensive, I thought!!!
I am waiting on quotes for my vanities, kitchen & laundry fit out so I will be sure to share the designs with you as soon as the drawings are back.
So any thoughts or suggestions are welcome as well as supplier details for these lovely floor tiles.
All of my images are from my pinterest board, pop on over & check it out if you like!!!
Have a fabulous day everyone
