Projects: Ceramic tile and air-jet tub

Our most recent big bath project had us install a new air-jet tub with a gorgeous ceramic tile tub surround. We replaced the owner's original, dysfunctional whirlpool-style tub and tile combination with all new product, including the faucet and fittings, and a polished brass shower door.

It's a shot of the right end of the tub, with the fixture (left) end reflected in the sink area mirror. This project took about eight man-days, and involved no less than one hundred trips up and down the main stairs.

    Most bathrooms are tiled with ceramic. Some colors, textures and styles can only be manufactured using ceramic tile technology.I decorated my bathroom with the best possible extent and with my best capabilities. I used white ceramics in my bathroom which was installed by Ciciliot . A professional in this regards and they did their job very well

  2. Thanks for stopping by! You're so right about installation of ceramic tile: the professionalism of your installers makes ALL the difference.

    Great product + poor install = disaster.
