It's been almost a month since our master bathroom renovation started. The demolition and most of the reconstruction took two weeks. Then we had to wait for glass to be measured, fabricated, and installed. Earlier this week we started using the room.
I still need to paint the walls, so the room's big reveal can't happen yet. However, since the shower portion didn't require painting, I thought you might like to see it.
Our old shower was in sad shape. It had soap-scum covered, four-inch white porcelain tiles, stained grout, a permanently discolored white floor pan, drippy shower head, and polished brass fixtures and framed glass. They were all removed. In their place we now have large ceramic tiles accented with a band of smaller subway tiles at eye level and a tiled niche to hold soap. The joints are filled with no-mildew grout. The floor is a similarly colored cultured marble with a very small water lip that makes the shower easy to step in and out of. The polished brass is long gone, replaced by brushed nickel, and the glass is semi-frameless.
I've showered in there several times now, and I feel like I'm in a fancy spa.
