Glass and Carrara Marble shower with linear drain and recycle glass pebble floor contemporary
 

Glass and Carrara Marble shower with linear drain and recycle glass pebble floor

Luxury cottage bath incorporates traditional Carrara marble and contemporary 4x12 white glass tile. Chrome Grohe fixtures compliment the design. The custom shower enclosure includes a fixed screen recessed into the wall and curb, thus no visible hardware and a self-centering swing door. Custom cabinetry reflects the calm spirit of this transitional bath.

Bench and shower head on same wall? - Question for you, in this shower for example, would it be possible to use the removeable shower head as a primary shower head, or would the bench get in the way? Is it possible to have a removeable shower head and bench on the same wall or would the bench be in the way? Trying to position a bench in our double shower and having problems conceptualizing it.

Thank you so much! This picture is perfect, and I believe this same design is the direction we will go in our shower. :)

Aloha and thank you for asking. This shower bench is 17.5" from the finished floor of the shower.
Most shower seats will be 17"-19" from the finished floor. However, we recommend measuring from the back of knee to the bottom of the user's foot to find the appropriate measurement for the client.
No two showers are alike, at least not from our firm. Also, remodeling requires taking into account the existing conditions.

Aloha,
We're uncertain of your question.
The countertop and shower detail is Carrara marble. The lighting is two types, recessed down lighting and the two wall sconce lighting. The color of the lighting is more cool than warm.
Hopefully this is helpful :-)

Aloha Becky and thank you for asking.
The finish inside shower footprint is 36"W x 70"L. The bench is 16"D with the floor being 54"L.
The total width is 41" which includes the 5"W curb in which the glass is inset and the door is centered.
Some "before" photos are below to show how the new layout really transformed the use of space and made it more user-friendly.
Thanks again for your interest!

Aloha and thank you for asking. The entire shower footprint is 72" x 40". The seat is 17" deep, which is included in the footprint thus making the shower floor 55" x 38" (inside measurement).

It is a shame that some folks use this information forum to peddle their wares. Houzz has specific areas of their website for sales, however this is not it.

The product used in the photo is by ModWalls. It is their Lush series, 4x12 in Cloud. They are in the products area of the Houzz website: http://www.houzz.com/photos/products/modwalls-lush-glass-tile

Yes, this is our Lush 4x12 Cloud! Ps, Subway Tile Outlet's products are not the same as our products. We design, curate, and manufacture all our own product lines.

You can find this color along with others on our website here: http://www.modwalls.com/4x12subway.aspx

Other modwalls Lush sizes are also available here: http://www.modwalls.com/lush.aspx

Hope this info helps!

Best regards,

Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS added this to New Year's Resolutions for Your Bathroom Renovation
Bathroom Resolution No. 5: I will take matters into my own hands next yearA handshower is a real boon to any shower, but especiallly for accident-prone sports enthusiasts and seniors. It is best positioned within reach of your shower bench for total accessibility.
John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to How to Settle on a Shower Bench
Any bench can be made safer. Grab bars, free space and bench positions are clearly laid out in ADA planning guides. These spaces need planning from the beginning so that interior walls do not get in the way of transferring from a wheelchair to the bench.Any shower built larger than 36 by 36 inches should have multiple grab bars.
