Petite Master Bath Remodel
Our clients have lived in this community for several years. They called us to expand the size of their master shower so a portable shower seat could be used and so they could also have some floor space for maneuvering around to the seat. We also updated the vanity backsplash and bathtub deck and surround tile.
To expand the shower, we had to remove the existing bathtub and rebuild the end of the tub deck. We also angled the front corner of the tub deck, so it no longer protruded into the walkway to the shower, water closet, and walk-in closet making the bathroom safer.
Inside the shower, we installed an ADA approved Delta grab bar/slide bar with a hand shower attachment and a separate fixed showerhead. For hand shower use when sitting on a shower chair, we installed an additional wall hook for the hand shower to sit in just below the grab bar on the back wall. To ensure the shower controls were easy to use, they had long handles that can easily be operated without having to grip them tightly. An additional grab bar was installed at the entry to the shower to provide extra stability while entering and exiting the shower.
To finish the newly expanded shower and to ensure the maintenance was as easy as possible, we installed Lane Marble’s Lanmark material (similar to Corian). It allows for a seamless surface with no grout lines to maintain. For the shower pan, an anti-slip texture is added to ensure safety. New Dal-Tile tile was installed on the bathtub deck and apron to coordinate with the existing floor tile. A magnetic access door to the bathtub motor was installed to hide the access panel creating a more seamless look. A spa-themed Dal-Tile mosaic backsplash tile was chosen and installed at the vanity and for the bathtub surround. Lastly, we installed a seamless shower surround with a swinging door and easy-grip door handle.
