Tub Converted to Walk in Shower

Form.

Update!

It was a nice house in a lovely neighborhood. The home owners were  oh-so-ready to start some updates. The baths particularly smacked of the 90’s: Cultured marble, pickled stain, gold plumbing fixtures, white tile. They would start upstairs.

Rethink the tub.

The tub would probably never be used for a bath. The teenage-upstairs-resident was a shower-type. The shower curtain was annoying. This Plano family decided to proceed with what many talk about, but few do —  deleting the tub. There were other tubs in the house if a future home owner needed such. The tub would be converted to a walk in shower.

Let Granite Determine the Palette.

We intended to go grayish. All the choices were arbitrary until we found an awesome Granite remnant  for the vanity counter top at A Custom Granite.

The granite confirmed our choice of the porcelain tile and accent which we were already drawn to. It also became the palette from which the paint colors were pulled.

We chose a Sherwin Williams enamel for the vanity and cabinet and SW —-  for the walls.

 Budget.

The existing vanity would stay. Paint would do the trick.

Frameless glass was selected for the shower. Longer shoe strings. For resale considerations, frameless would probably be expected in this neighborhood.

A large framed $49 mirror from Hobby Lobby — discovered by the home owner– replaced the existing wall mirror. It was the PERFECT odd size!
