A couple weeks ago we prepared the main floor bath for tile.
And today, the bathroom looks like this!
I will let the pictures do the talking:
The shower/sink area before:
The shower niche/window area:
The shower niche wall before:
Remember the moldy old window?
Now marble window stools are in its place, surrounding the new fixed panel privacy window:
By extending the wall tiles beyond the shower area to cover the long walls, we made the bathroom look more cohesive and minimal:
Can you believe that this is the same room just a few months ago?
Remember the old sink vanity?
The area for future toilet and vanity now looks like this:
I cannot help but moving the new vanity in for a dry fit. Here is what we picked for the room:
This beautiful shower pan has replaced the old moldy tub:
What a transformation, isn’t it?
With the tiling work out of the way, we are just a couple steps before putting the bathroom back together! We will be installing a seamless shower door similar to the one in our master bathroom here in just a couple weeks. Then, we will bring in the toilet, connect the sink vanity, and install the shower fixtures. While waiting for the shower door to arrive, we will finish the ceiling and doorway ourselves. It is nice to see the bath to-do list become much shorter now!
