At Coverings 2022, we honored 10 outstanding projects that demonstrated spectacular craftsmanship and creativity in the use of tile & stone. This week we’re putting the spotlight on the 2022 CID Award winner for Residential Tile Installation.
Residential Tile Installation Winner
Copenhagen at Home
On The Level Flooring
A failed shower gave this client the perfect opportunity to upgrade to the bathroom of their dreams. A hotel in Copenhagen was the design inspiration for this project.
Ceramica Fondovalle 6mm Komi in 94” lengths was selected as the floor and required proper prep, followed by a full MAPEI system to install and finish. The shower design presented a chance for creativity from prep to finish. Utilizing waterproof Goboard as the base, the exterior wall was covered, and then a set of false walls constructed using 1-1/2” Goboard as the structure.
A custom linear drain was installed wall to wall at the entrance of the shower for a curbless transition and the radiant heating system continues throughout the shower floor for maximum comfort. 8mm Dekton by Cosentino in Entzo provided the perfect Calacatta Gold look the client desired and the 10’ ceiling height fit perfectly with the 10’ panels.
The Panel Handler rack system, meanwhile, ensured that the investment into these beautiful panels was never in jeopardy.
