My Master Bath project


Guess I need to take another pic showing the shower a little better...

I did everything but the shower glass. No way was I getting into that..


I called in a favor.... Friend works for a local company that does all the heavy glass work for one of my customers. I got a pretty serious discount on the glass and install. And man, that thick, tempered glass is expensive.

Bad thing about the shower?

Turn on both shower heads, all three body sprays, music cranked up (has stereo as well as the HDTV), and you don't want to get out.

Any chance of seeing some more pics of your bathroom? It looks great! I'm planning a similarly sized bathroom (7x12), and I'd like to see how you fit everything in there.

Thanks!

Here's a few more. Maybe they'll give you some ideas.

I should say something other than wow, which has been said repeatedly, but it is the first thing that comes to mind! WOW. I LOVE the wall tile. It looks so rich with your border. Thanks for sharing...

The budget for those who may be interested:

Floor/Wall Tile = $1,400.00 (same tile with a small color difference)
Border Tile = $350.00
Cap Tile = $790.00

Air Tub = $3,100.00
Undermount Basin = $80.00
Groehe = $1,400.00 (Shower, Basin and Tub)

Commode = $240.00

Custom Cabinets = $1,600.00
Granite = $1,300.00 (Counter, Tub Surround, Shower Seat/Sill/Threshold)

Glass = $1,100.00

Mirror = $120.00

Of course we had to get all new Egyptian cotton towels, etc. And all new paper, towels holders, etc.

I know there's some things I'm missing, so it looks to be roughly $12,000.00 even.



OH MY GAWD!


Actually I know that without getting some very serious discounts by others in the construction field, there's no way this could have been done for that kind of cost. Probably would have been close to triple to have it done....

Very nice work and quite an improvement. How would a TV last in a bathroom though with a shower. I know with us even with the exhaust fan running it can get pretty steamed up in there, and especially when the boy takes a shower. For us the Tv would be a problem. The boy would never get out of there and we'd be back to a half bath to work with.

oldgoat,

There's enough space and ventilation that there's no issues at all with steaming up the room. The glass tends to steam up a bit inside the shower, but that's it.

Generally the TV is only on in the mornings anyway. Nice to be abe to turn on the news/weather while preparing for the day....


That "especially when the boy takes a shower" thing isn't an issue here, and it wouldn't have been. This is our master bath, off limits to anyone else....
