Dream house bathroom progress

Well the dream house is progressing to the point where it is almost ready to begin.
 
Just waiting on a few more quotes to arrive for final costing & the surveyors to come & peg a few things out so all of the floor levels are perfect.
 
I have to say I am ridiculously excited at this point & cant wait to see some  dirt getting dug up!!
 
I have pretty much finalised the bathroom, ensuite & laundry selections with the vanities & laundry cabinets designed & quoted, the tiles are all quoted & just waiting on a quote for tap ware toilets & bathtub.
The only choices left to make are the light fittings & blinds, but there is no immediate rush for those,

This is my inspiration for the bathroom & I have been fortunate  enough to find a ceramic basket weave tile just like the ones in the pic. I will also have the white border tile.
 
 
You guessed it, white subway tiles on the wall with a nice white capping tile. There will also be a strip of pencil tiles just to add a little more interest as I have gone white for everything.
You can check out more of my home inspiration here on my 
Pinterest boards.
 
I will be having two recesses in each shower to store all of the necessities.
 
 
 
My vanity designs have been drawn up & will be custom built by Planit Kitchens who are also doing the kitchen & laundry.
 
 
A close up of my floor tiles, I found these babies at
Jacoba Tiles which are one of my local tile stores, you can read about my last attempt a sourcing tiles locally here
Price wise they were very reasonable which made me very happy.
 
Lets hope it all comes together as I am imagining it !
 
Any advice or suggestions gladly accepted as at this point it is all just quotes,nothing ordered so its not to late to change if I am making some horrendous design faux pas.
 
CHEERS
