bath issues can replace with solid base?


The current shower bath tiles are popping up and need to have the base floor or sub-floor removed and put into place a new acrylic style shower pan that does not need to be tiled. More like a solid shower pan. size of shower is about 33' x 41'-42' (measured from inside). Some of the tiles probably have to be removed at the side and remove old tiles on base and rip out the floor and putting in a new floor or sub floor. The entire show bath is all tiled currently. What is the best approach?

Pull all the tiles and go over a solid subfloor

Remove about a foot of wall tile and demolish the old base---a solid onyx base can be made to order if the fiberglass ones do not fit----many counter top companies make bases.

You will have an issue waterproofing the walls properly---

Hy Guys, My brother recently remodeled the guest bathroom. It’s really lovely and we love everything about it. But it’s hard to find a paint color or shower curtain/accessories that go well with the bathroom and shower caddies. We have painted the entire wall beige, and I hate it, so we sampled some darker colors on the wall but I'm not sure. Any suggestions please?
