This is our hallway bathroom in progress. The tile is carrara marble, the floors are pine stained walnut, and the walls still need to be painted, trim to go up, and door to be painted. Would you change anything in this bathroom so far? Also, what would you do to tie it all together?

Please note - project had to be done on a tight budget - some of the materials were recycled/beyond our control

Hello Melissa,

I see a problem at the corner(s) of the open end of the bathtub. If there will be a shower curtain, you will most likely get water problems. Only with a well designed and installed glass enclosure you can avoid that water runs down this corner. You should have tiled the short walls a bit wider so that you have at least a couple inches down the tub tiled. This corner could be sealed properly to avoid water damage.

Did you install a waterproofing membrane behind your Marble tiles? And don't forget to seal the joints between the tiles and the bathtub. These joints must be filled with a flexible sealant because your bathtub will expand when filled with warm water and and contract when drained and it will also a bit move/bend when you enter and sit in it. As Joint sealant for your marble tiles use only neutral-cure silicone! Don't use acidic-cure-silicone it can cause stains in your Marble! And also don't use acrylic or siliconized acrylic (both known as caulk) because acrylic macerates everytime when it goes wet. Furthermore it is an ideal growing place for mould.

I hope you will be super careful about water in the bathroom with the wood floor...
