Bathroom Floor Tiling Project – SnapStone Tiles Toilet Installation

SnapStone Floor Tile Around Toilet Flange

Yesterday we saw the progression of the SnapStone tiles on the bathroom floor, starting at the wall with the sink, because it is where we have the floor heating / cooling vent, and progressing to the other side of the wall.

In the above picture, you can see the spout coming out from the wall. You … [Read more...]
