After (with Durock down)
The Turkish marble color scheme is a milky cream color with grays and tans swirled throughout. It is not polished which makes for great traction which is very important in a room where it is inevitable that water will be splashed on the floor from time to time.
We did hire our for the installation for this project since the bath is anything, but a standard size. Below you will see a picture of the marble in, but not grouted. It took our contractor one day to get the marble laid. We choose to have the marble laid in a brick pattern.
Here is another angle without the grout.
Our particular marble tile needed to be sealed before the floor was grouted. The contractor used Aqua Mix Sealers Choice Gold. This product claims to be low VOC, but it left quite an odor behind once applied for a low VOC product. After airing the space out for a few hours, the flumes were gone, but we were quite disappointed with the stench it left behind for those few first hours.

So there you have it, after 2 plus years, the nasty carpet is gone, and we could not be happier with our marble selection. Next on tap is paint..... Stay tuned!
