This fully tiled bathroom project was rather interesting: An open layout idea was to be incorporated with a fully tiled, floor to ceiling concept. The first challenge was to find the right mix of tiles that wouldn’t have too much sheen. Said tiles had to deliver a Mediterranean/ West Coast British Columbian look and feel. Furthermore, the planning and execution of the shower and bidet had to be set up.
Footprint of the new bathroom
Before anything else, the footprint of the new bathroom needed to be established. Ultimately, the existing bathroom, an adjacent bedroom and a hall closet were demolished to create the extended area for the new bathroom.
Naturally, the additional square footage enabled us to incorporate an alcove behind the free-standing tub. Besides, more space on the shower wall side allowed for a 6’ shower that was 36” deep! Also, the increased cavities made the routing for the new shower and bidet supply and drain lines and possible. As well, the freestanding tub could be elevated, resulting in a bold look.
Rough-in and re-frame
The result of the rough-in and re-frame was a larger open bathroom. Additionally, the tiles perfectly complement each other with light earthy tones. As well, the bathroom was finished off with a beautiful towel warmer and Riobel terminal plumbing hardware with Kohler accessories. The 10mm frameless glass shower enclosure allows for an unobstructed open view of the room. Complementing the look is a large amount of natural light! Almost forgot: The room is fully heated by an in-floor Nu-Heat system. Such nice results for such nice clients! Let us know if you too feel the need for a new, better and improved bathroom.
