Bluegrass Subway Tile Shower with a Stunning Niche

Bluegrass Subway Tile Shower with a Stunning Niche

Keep the design simple and the details impeccable - that's the motto of a contemporary home. This shower follows suit, making a memorable bathroom with a timeless appeal. The homeowner, Molly, opted for the deep teal color of Bluegrass 1036W in 3"x8" Subway Tile for a classic look that's anything but ordinary. The details of contrasting tile, the perfected trim, and a stunning niche takes this project to the next level. 

The Style: 

Before we get started on the bathroom, can we take a moment to appreciate the entire upstairs remodel that this homeowner did? It's a lofted oasis filled with  simplicity, functionality, and minimalism - perfectly encapsulating Scandinavian style. Molly put her own modern twist on this minimalist design, curating a unique style with natural materials, vintage accessories, and pops of color to create this one of a kind house that’s nothing short of perfection. We think a home with so much character and personality deserves handmade tile…

The Bathroom:

Nothing makes us happier than seeing our tile surrounded by beautiful decor after an install, and this bathroom reveal had us jumping for joy. What made us the happiest? The glass shower doors, of course! We always recommend adding glass doors rather than a curtain. It will make your bathroom look more polished, it's easier to maintain, and (most importantly to us) it shows off your beautiful tile! The homeowners of this project topped it off with a warm wood vanity, a swoon-worthy vintage rug, and framed photos for a cozy touch.

The Shower:

Our tile is 100% handmade from start to finish in Minneapolis, MN. And while we keep our prices as reasonable as possible, we understand that covering a whole space in our tile isn't always in the budget. This bathroom is the perfect example of showcasing the detail and beauty of our handmade tile as the star of the show, then incorporating conventionally-made tile to fill in the remainder of the space. Plus, contrasting tile can give a modern and beautiful look. In this bathroom there were a few tiles included: our Bluegrass Subway Tile and V-Caps contrasted with conventionally-made white subway for the rest of the walls, dark hexagons for the floor, and black pencil liners for finishing.

The Niche:

We're obsessed with niches! After spending so much effort on your bathroom remodel, we think all the details should be just perfect - and a cheap shower caddy is not something we think your gorgeous new space needs! We're going to be honest, we think this is one of the most beautiful niches we've ever seen. We love the added granite base for a smooth surface to place your items, along with the glass shelf for added storage. Our V-Cap finishing pieces offer a posh and clean transition, and black pencil liners make it even more interesting as an added detail.

We just can't say enough good things about this bathroom - we are in love. Simplicity for the win!

    As one of the workers on this massive project I’m so thrilled that the tile company was happy with what we did to utilize their tile. It was a tricky project that took a long time to finish. But the whole upstairs including the bathroom was very exciting to see from beginning to finish and also a lot of work. Thanks for the appreciation and I would recommend your tile to anyone looking to finish a bathroom.
