This project started with the client just wanting to replace the glass on the master shower. When the glass started to be removed, the tile, backer and everything else started falling apart. What happened was we were on a one-way trip to a forced shower rebuild (remodel with the changes). The wall separating the tub and shower was totally destroyed with the shower bench seat also beyond repair. We took everything to the studs and started the rebuild process. The changes included —-
- Lower pony wall separating tub and shower to almost tub level to give the bathroom a larger “feel”
- Eliminated the bench and replaced with a corner shaving ledge.
- Added niche on rear wall for additional storage.
- Moved shower head from back wall to side wall to allow for more shower room — bigger shower in the end.
- Changed tub fixture to match shower fixture.
- Wall and accent tiles installed to bring tub and shower together. For example, accent tile runs from shower and around tub.
- Shower wall tiles ran to the ceiling to give a larger “feel” to the shower area … and the bathroom all together.
- Frameless glass enclosure.
