We also decided to install heated flooring, which you can read all about here!
We actually hired some help (well, I made Chris hire some help) to gut the room because I was nervous about mold and stuff like that from water damage.
I may have gone a little overboard in my designs for the tile, which we installed ourselves. We have large 12x24 natural slate tiles on the floor, which are heated underneath, beveled white subway tile halfway up the walls, and then a marble herringbone patterned backsplash. That backsplash took a painstaking amount of work because of all of the tiny little cuts needed to get all the edges perfect, but the detail around the top of the beveled subway tile was actually the most expensive part of the whole tile-scheme. We have a little marble mosaic detail topped with a chair rail made from ceramic. That chair rail is definitely beautiful, but those are some of the most expensive tiles! I think I would probably just use wood painted in gloss if I were to do something like this again. :)
