More shower heads is my vote, unless the shower is tiny but even then you can add a rain shower head to have a different type of experience.

On the backsplash, I just get a sheet of plexiglass. Not adhered. Maybe 24x32 or however wide the cooktop is and I just place it between the cooktop and backsplash. Never even notice it’s there and...

Get a replacement escutcheon and see how well you can cut/grind. With the proper tools and patience you should be able to make it look professional. If that doesn’t work then proceed to modifying the...

Would be surprised if it was all drywall. At least on mine, there’s an area that’s like crushed ceramic or something. Expensive to replace. If that fireplace was original to the house and built to...

I put weighted 2x4s down on the edges because it seems like the ditra wants to curl up at the edges. I guess that wouldn’t be the case if you were filling the waffles at the sameness time.

I sloped my tile into the drain from the shower side and the bathroom side. Water will want to run out, especially if the drain isn’t exactly edge to edge. Even if it were wall to wall I’d still want...

1/2 tile won’t be a problem but I’d make sure not to have a sliver of it can be helped. Those are pretty large tiles so they won’t move around unlike mosaic when cutting.

If you want a bigger...

I actually have the daltile fabrique in the master bathroom installed by the builder. They did a 50% stagger and the lippage isn’t bad at all (surprisingly)

What kind of contractor was this? They've tiled before? It would really make me question how they did the rest of work.

Any chance they can use some kind of oscillating tool to cut a tiny groove...

There is no exposed till edge with a schluter linear drain. There is while installing but there is a frame that installs partially into the channel body and butts up against the edge of the tile.

Just a response to the post the says schluter doesn’t have a tile edge. It most certainly does.

I don’t understand how this is supposed to work or how a linear drain works with weep holes.

The schluter linear drain has a flange with the kerdi adhered to it so there’s no place for the water to go but into the drain. It’s also connected via a no hub coupler to the drain pipe.

Not sure how water flows when it gets through the tile but I’d rather have it hit kerdi than sit in the waffles of Ditra.

Schluter gives you foam to support the drain. Making it level should not...

For clarity. Ditra is allowed over plywood, right? So you’re saying that kerdi over Ditra isn’t something that’s approved/recommended?

What are you putting under the tile elsewhere on that floor? CBU, Ditra? Ditra XL? Are those joists going perpendicular to the placement of the linear drain?

My vote is for a piece of matching aluminum. What’s at the edges of the threshold? Would a channel terminate well?

Definitely have the tub tile the same level as the wall tile. I’d either put a band at the bottom for between the 1st row and 2nd if it’s decorative.

I was thinking about that a little. Could you cut and leave a 1-2" perimeter uncut. That'll give you the ability to screw down both edges of the cbu and tape properly. Guess it depends on whether...
