Small Bathroom in Duxbury

This is a marble floor that resembles another one I did with the same pattern but that one was ceramic.  The 12×12 mats are honed carrera marble and the border is also carrera marble but tumbled not honed so I had to darken it with color enhancer to match the black dots in the honed marble.

My customers wanted a black border to break up the predominant white in the room.  In order to get the border to line up precisely with the baseboard and tub, I had to install the baseboard first, then install the border and then cut the herringbone tiles exactly into it.  This was difficult because the room was not square and the small pieces of marble will not cut precisely without shattering.
