tile begins in the third mid-century modern bathroom

Three and a half months, and finally, the third bathroom is in progress! You probably already have the general idea from the other two previous bathrooms, but this one will be a little different. This bathroom is, by far, the biggest bathroom of the three, and the widest. Therefore it will have a tub, and a darker "tile feature wall."

Tile in the guest bathroom will be the middle right.
Alex's and master was the top right.

To save money, and simplify the last part of the project, the shower retains its original tiny shape and the toilet will still be positioned directly next to the shower in its original location. Kind of odd given that this is truly the biggest bathroom space of the three.  Just to remind you, it was the yellow tile bathroom featured here. We added about seven feet to the back of this bathroom. Honestly, it seems as big as a bedroom.

has been moved to the correct wall?

The requirement for this bathroom was a tub with a window. The tub will be located down at the end. We will have to construct a pretty view.

Tons of space for a big soaking tub.

Exact same cabinets as the other two bathrooms.

We have moved into our two completed bathrooms. And we moved Alex back into his bedroom (no more sleeping in the office). Our master is still trashed (sadly) and is used for access from outside to the center bathroom. Essentially, a construction storage locker. I made a Target run yesterday and got some accessories. In keeping with the simple, modern bathrooms, I purchased ...

Towels in nothing less than "True White."

And "spa" bath rugs in elephant grey.

And trash cans in what color?

Umm, white. Have you not been paying attention?
