A few months ago, one of our loyal customers (see their kitchen remodel here) called us back out to help them remodel their bathrooms. Their master bath, especially needed help. While the existing bathroom was in good shape, it was really small, and very poorly designed. Our customers complained that they practically have to climb over the toilet to get in and out of the shower, and while the bench is nice, it gets in the way of the shower curtain, so water ends up spilling out onto the floor – not good!
To get the space we needed to make things right, we decided to steal a little space from the ample master bedroom. This allowed us to move the toilet away from the shower – ’cause nobody really wants to stare at the toilet while they’re showering, right?! – and still have enough room for a double vanity.
Niches are a must in any shower. Here we used the same mosaic as we did for the floor to create an accent. To avoid the need for bullnose or exposed edges, our tile guy, Eugene, meticulously mitered the outside corners of the niche for a really sleek look.
Speaking of bonuses – yes, these floors are heated, and while some people might consider this a luxury, all I can say is: nothing’s quite so welcome as the feel of warm tile floors when you walk barefoot into the bathroom on a cold winter morning!
