(Above left) In addition to lacking a functional layout, both the sink and toilet were broken. The plumbing leading to each fixture also needed replacement.
Copper supply lines have been installed for the sink, toilet, and tub; and waste lines for the toilet and tub were replaced. There is a new Kohler toilet, and a new reproduction console sink from Menards.
Three layers of flooring were removed, the floors were leveled, and new travertine tile was installed.
A new double paned window and Ikea white wood blinds were installed.
Subway tile was installed over Wonderboard in the shower surround. Some new sheetrock was installed and the remaining was skim-coated.
The room was painted "Silver Sage", and the trim "The Right White" from Restoration Hardware.
Cement board (a.k.a. Wonderboard, Hardibacker, Denshield) was installed in tub surround. This is required in high moisture areas instead of gypsum board (a.k.a. wallboard, sheetrock)
The two shelves shown in the corner are each large enough to hold 2 1-litre bottles; that means plenty of space for all of your shower goodies!
New shower assembly in chrome finish purchased from Home Depot. Since we were redoing all of the plumbing anyway, I chose a height for the showerhead tall enough for Dave to stand under. He no longer has to arch his back to get all of the shampoo out of his hair!
Shown in the above photos is the new sheetrock and the new beadboard (beaded board) wainscotting.
The medicine cabinet is an antique from an 1800's mansion that I bought on Ebay and restored.
