I’ve recently completed a full bathroom remodel in Erie, Colorado. Almost all the tile in the bathroom is travertine.
The shower has 3″ x 6″ travertine tile in a running bond, or ‘subway style’ pattern with a 6″ row of glass mosaics through the center. There is a double shelf niche on the back wall and a half-wall, or knee-wall between the shower and tub. The homeowners are installing a frameless glass enclosure around the shower. The shower floor tile is a marble pentagon mosaic tile.
There is a soaking tub surround with the same subway pattern and a row of glass as well.
The floor is 12″ x 12″ travertine tile placed on-point (diagonally) and a Suntouch heating element installed below the floor tile. The heating element is controlled from a thermostat box on the wall similar to a regular home heating thermostat. With it you can essentially control the temperature of your tile or stone floor for those cold mornings.
The entire bathroom was built with Schluter products. The shower is a full Kerdi shower with a regular deck mud base and the Kerdi drain. The Kerdi drain is a highly versatile one-piece drain system used with Kerdi and can also be used with other topical waterproofing membranes. It is available in nearly every metallic finish to match your bathroom fixtures.
The bathroom floor has 1/2″ Hardiebacker as a base layer with the Suntouch heating element installed above it. As the final substrate for the tile I’ve installed Schluter Ditra. When installing any type of heating element with Ditra the Ditra is installed above the heating element with tile installed directly to it.
