Black and White Bathroom

Very specific goals were set forth as part of this bathroom renovation – create a walk-in shower the homeowner’s elderly parents could use comfortably and replace the aging plumbing fixtures with new models while maintaining the style of the early 20th century home. To achieve this, the bathroom was gutted in its entirety and much of the existing water and waste piping was replaced before the exterior walls were re-insulated. Not only was a new subfloor installed, but the floor also received a cementitious mud-set layer before being tiled which ensures the herringbone mosaic floor tile will not shift and remain crack free for years to come. Incorporating the space from an abandoned stairwell adjacent to the bathroom provided just enough room for the walk in shower which features a surface mounted rain shower assembly, a linear slot drain and a custom built marble shelf unit.
