The Challenge:

Tiolet & Shower

Toilet & Shower

This home had a laundry room that was slab on grade because this room was once part of a garage. The home only had one bathroom that was inadequate for the family. The laundry room was small, and it did not appear to be wide enough for a traditional 3/4 bath. We knew that a clever design could make a great shower in the laundry room.

The Idea:

Switch the swing of the door, leave the laundry in the bath, break out the floor to find the main sewer line and hook into it. Create a barrier free shower that is curtained off only when the shower is in use. This project allowed us to get an open feeling out of a tiny space.

The Solution:

We broke out the floor and found that everything we needed in the sewer was there. We used a tile wainscoting around the entire room. We installed a fan and ample lighting. The laundry room is now in the bathroom.

The Details:

Custom shower design, barrier free shower. Curtain rod that was able to be custom shaped on the ceiling. Tile shelves in the shower, metal edging for the tile,
