I often get asked if you can put large tile in a shower… Most people have the mindset that only smaller tiles will work. I say GO BIG! I love the look of more surface area and less grout joints…

I also did a countertop in the same material….The homeowners were looking for a “slab” look without the hight cost. Here is what I came up with..

The sinks were “tiled in” for ease of  cleaning and to retain a “slab” look….

A nice little spash was done around the Bathtub to tie the whole bath together. The 24″ tiles were cut with the deco inserted in the middle to create a 17″ high tub surround…
