Really? On the inside of the shower the difference between the curb and the shower pan is only a few inches. I'm not sure how you could build a proper pan that's sloped w/o having as high a curb as I have (I think it's only about 5"?). It's really not that bad. Not to mention, the floor tiles will sit about an inch high which will make the curb a little lower relatively. The master bath shower has a curb about the same height and it's fine to me.

Been a while since I've updated this thread but then again I've also been pretty slow/lazy about working on the bathroom. Finally got it all painted and electrical/light fixtures in, gonna start cutting the tile this weekend.

I'll post an updated picture later.

Basement bathroom shower remodel


I measured the curb in the master bath and it's ~7" high, and the bath I'm doing now is ~6" so should be a-ok to me.

Here's a picture of the progress thus far, and one of the master bath which the bathroom I'm working on will be very similar to in terms of size/design. Only difference is for the basement bath it's going to be a little more modern and I'm debating on using 12x24's in the shower (ya I know you need a flat wall which makes them a pita lol). I personally love these doors they sell at the big box store and I'll be using them for the new bathroom as well. For the price (~$300) you can't beat em imo. The true frameless doors cost 3-4x that and can leak water around the edges.

Thanks as always for the help guys.

Basement bathroom shower remodel


Man, been some time since I've gotten around to working on this bathroom but finally starting up again.. Been busy with a lot of other things but plan is to be done a month from now. Got the shower tiles and floor tiles in and grouted. Bought the shower tiles (need to pickup the bullnose pieces) and hope to have the shower tiled next weekend. After that things should go quickly.. shower doosr then baseboards, then toilet/vanity. Grout is dark because it's still wet because I just finished cleaning up. I'll probably clean up the haze tonight or tomorrow.

Well, I've been working here and there and finished all the tiling/grouting, I've installed the baseboard and caulked the shower but didn't snap a picture yet. All I need to do now is install the shower doors, toilet, and vanity. I just need a kick in the butt now to finish these last things, but I'm dragging not to mention busy with other things.

Pictures aren't the best but things turned out nicely. I was going to make a nice 6" backsplash for the vanity that matches the accent tile in the shower, but the vanity came with the granite backsplash piece (and I'm getting lazy) so I'm going to just use that.

Thanks Blonde! As always thanks guys for all the help/advice. Definitely wouldn't have been able to do things without the great advice from this board. It's amazing how so much can be learned online these days, whereas years ago you bought a book, and had to try and fill in the missing parts with your best guess.

One thing that was a little surprising with the shower is/was that I thought 12x24 tiles would be harder to install on a wall, but I found them to be roughly the same in terms of work as a smaller tile. The reason being that minor lippage on a wall isn't a big deal, but on a floor it's a big deal because you feel any minor differences. I think I might do 12x24 tiles in the next bathroom as well. I love the minimal grout lines which should make it easier to keep clean.

Pretty much all done. Just need to buy a TP and towel holder, and a couple other small misc things. It turned out nicely. Thanks everyone again!
