A repair leads to a bathroom makeover

repair leading to bathroom makeover

A leaky shower led to an entire bathroom makeover for a happily satisfied TriFection client in Bellaire. His plain, outdated white and beige bathroom had served him well, but it was clearly in need of updates.

IMG_3058: Bellaire bathroom makeoverOur first bathroom makeover suggestion was elimination of the bathtub in favor of a man-sized shower. Our client’s resistance to that idea drained away while looking through photos of other walk-in showers we’d created. There’s no denying the trend of homeowners increasingly choosing to eliminate space-wasting tubs without any adverse impact on resale value.

The frameless glass shower surround is comprised of Esquire Stone Fire porcelain tile, accented by Scabos 1×1 natural stone tile.

The shower floor is covered with Scabos Mini Versailles tile. The added space left after removing the tub allowed for two granite-topped bench seats, both inside and outside the shower.  The recessed shampoo niche also featured granite shelves. Finally, we added a shower head, powerful body sprays, handheld unit, slide bar and grab bar from Jaclo’s Roaring Twenties line to complete a shower any man would envy.

IMG_3056Given that our client is a tall man, we suggested elevating the bathroom counters from the original 31-inch height to 36-inches.TriFection’s in-house custom cabinet design team created a taller vanity built with solid cherry wood and Shaker-style fronts, both finished with a dark oak stain.

Bullnosed Stormy Night granite beautifully complemented these new cabinets. Oil-rubbed bronze fixtures finished off the vanity’s decidedly masculine look.

Finally, we completed this bathroom makeover with Travertino Royal Walnut floor tile in a Hopscotch pattern to bring together the earth tone look of the overall project.

It’s proof that sometimes a leaky shower can lead to wonderful results.
