Bathroom Renovations Can Be A Rocky Project
It took a few trips to the tile stores to find the one we wanted to work with and ultimately we worked with Fuda Tile (in Ramsey, NJ). My wife did most of the work but like a good husband I provided my “2-cents” when they weren’t requested…When my wife brought home a pebble floor option I was sold. As you can see the finished product is great and we can’t wait to use it (we are still waiting for the shower doors to be installed). But the process to get to the finished product was definitely “rocky”.
- The flooring was a special order so it took a few extra days to arrive. If I knew this at the time I would have gone another direction – good thing no one told me…
- Then the tile guy installed the floor but used 35lbs of grout and covered all the pebbles.
- Thankfully the contractor agreed with us that the installation was incorrect and insisted that they remove the floor and a replace it at their expense with a new floor. Which of course took extra time and meant reordering and waiting for delivery!
After all the extra work we love the way it looks and everyone who has seen it firsthand agrees. We can’t wait to feel the massaging of our feet while using the shower. Hopefully that is only a week or so away.
One piece of advice, if you plan to install a pebble or rock floor in your shower make sure your tile installer has done similar work before.
