We just wrapped tile up today and I'm not thrilled with how it turned out. It definitely looked much better in my head. I can't decide what I don't like. Did I choose the wrong granite for the wall caps? Layout issue? What should I have done differently? Customer loves it all so I guess I'm just wanting to know what I should tweak for next time.

Who cares how it looks. Customer loved it and the check cleared. On to the next.

PS...the shower floor is a little wonky.

I think overall is pretty cool looking.

9x36. Linear drain may have looked better but I wanted a continuous sized base piece with it being only four inches.

The left side wall looks off compared to the rest. 2 rows of horizontal tiles in a vertical pattern and the rest of the room is all offset.

That is a bit goofy. I should have eliminated the glass mosaic.

You could have just made all the inside shower walls that same pattern and done the rest the way you did and it'd have been fine.
It was just what I noticed right away.

Its still fine if they are happy with it.

Very nice, James.

I would say , from the photos , the tile is too wide -- 9" instead of 6" -- , which looks like something is off. Maybe it looks better than in the photos.

Looks good. Did you design it?

If by "design" you mean draw on wall for a few hours with a pencil, then yes. She is a past client and basically said she has about 30k for a bathroom and to have fun; do whatever I want. Because this was entirely my thing from the start, I was just hoping to be happier with it.
