After completing the second floor bathroom, the homeowner’s hired us to remodel their first floor bathroom. The cast iron tub was removed along with the existing plumbing fixtures and drywall. The wall where the shower is now located was framed to fit a standard size shower pan. New drywall, beadboard ceiling, wainscoting, and moulding was installed. The shower surround has a traditional 3×6 porcelain tile that includes a double niche with a hybrid shower enclosure. Sherwin Williams color of the year, Naval, was selected as the wall color, and provides a beautiful contrast against the bright white trim. A custom sized linen cabinet was installed to provide extra storage. The room was trimmed out in brushed brass fixtures and hardware. LVP flooring was installed to finish the look.
The homeowner’s were referred to us by an existing client. The second floor bathroom ended up being the first of three remodels that we completed for this client last year. They wanted to remove the claw foot tub and install a walk in shower. We were able to get creative by utilizing an existing plumbing chase to give them a better layout for the room. The tub, pedestal sink, toilet, drywall, flooring, beadboard ceiling and moulding were all removed. We reconfigured the bathroom by framing a new wet wall. This allowed us to not only create the space for the shower, but also provide privacy for the toilet area. The corners were softened by adding 45° angles. New drywall was installed throughout. A bench was framed for the walk in shower. 12×12 porcelain tile was used for the shower surround with a custom hybrid shower enclosure. A beautiful piece of leathered granite was used for the bench and vanity top. 12×24 porcelain tile was selected for the wall tile finished with a mosaic tile that doubles as the vanity’s backsplash. We chose a matching custom vanity and linen cabinet. A soothing Conservative Gray by Sherwin Williams compliments the tile and stone for the wall color. The bathroom floor is an LVP by Shaw. The room was finished with brushed brass hardware and fixtures.
We are absolutely loving the new shower trend! The style that everyone is asking for is a glass enclosure shower with a bench and TWO shower heads. Having two sources of water in the shower is so luxurious. The shower heads can be a rainfall shower head on the ceiling, and a traditional or handheld sprayer on a side wall, or any combination of the three. How boujee do you want your shower to be?
