Compact Shower Remodel: Peeling to Perfect

Posted On: December 28, 2015

We are often called by frustrated homeowners who have had enough with an outdated bathroom that they are embarrassed by. When people visit, the door has always been closed off. Guests are told to use another powder room. Frequently these bathrooms are characterized by an outdated linoleum floor, an unflattering shower color, and a color palette that has seen better decades. In this particular instance, this bathroom was characterized by all three!

Although we have given this project a rating of 10 in all areas, we would like to give our thanks…

The Before: A Bel Air, Maryland Bathroom

This very small 3/4 bathroom featured an alcove shower that did not sit flush with the wall. The original installer didn’t complete a thorough seal of the area where the wall met the shower—as shown in the picture. The showerhead was not functionally ideal, since there are now models that allow for the adjustable head to be at body height instead of awkwardly high. The outdated yellow ceramic on the showerhead didn’t help!

You worked with us, very patiently, with picking out materials for the cabinets, backsplash, countertops, etc. You faxed us the…

After the Compact Shower Remodel

We completed the following steps with this bathroom remodel:

  1. Lighten the environment – By using white stone for the shower’s interior and choosing a vibrant a yellow as the wall color, the entire bathroom gets a brighter feel.
  2. Create more usability – In adding a shower bench and a shower shelf, we made sure that it was easier to use the shower despite its small square footage.
  3. Update fixtures – With a showerhead that is now placed much closer to arm’s reach in addition to grab bars, this shower and its fixtures are going to be used much more often.

Each step of the process was completed with our certified designers from the idea stage to the final grout polish.
