beautiful job on this shower. I love it. Us this shower waterproofed? Does the water get out of the shower? I noticed you have a narrow glass panel and you don't have a regular showerhead. Was that enough to avoid water outside the shower? I love this and would like to do it if it work for you. Great
bathroom added on). I would like to replace the bath tub into a shower like this picture on the main floor. Is it a good idea? Is it not a good selling feature?
Most I've seen run tile past enclosure. I have a problem with mine. Drywall outside enclosure, decaying from water seeping through caulked corners. I'm at a loss for solutions. This looks like it could be what I need. Please help! Thank you

Barrier-Free Shower Stall
gentle pitch is enough to drain water quickly and completely. A lot of old houses have floors more slanted than 1/4" per foot (until I level them) and nobody falls down. The floor tile is Daltile, Veranda Solids, color: Saddle. It has a comfortable, leathery feel to it. Easy to grip.
neither the interior nor the exterior would be a problem. Finally, wood windows are not OK in shower stalls. But, PVC plastic or aluminum are not easy to glue Kerdi fabric on to either. I am advised Epoxy can work with PVC (PVC window parts are "welded" together) but I haven't found an epoxy yet which
fabric membrane, more than 2” up, and more than 76” up in the shower. The threshold and the base of the door jams are also waterproofed. Flood water rising from a blocked drain and reaching the top of the threshold, would exceed the amount contained by a 2” curb, or a much higher one, if it were

Hi Shane, I'm a Content Curator for a National Home Builder's blog. Currently, I'm gathering photos for a Kitchen + Bathroom trends article. I like how you put drawers under the vanity cabinet drawers. That's genius! I was wondering if I could feature this image in
how is the wood treated for water and humidity resistance
we are a firm in the middle east and bathroom cabinets are not common here. so what do you use to treat the wood to become water and humidity resistant and more durable for bathrooms.
this look . I do have enough granite for a double vanity top but not enough for backsplash. The subway tile looks greatI but what about all the water that wets the grout on a daily basis ? Does the grout not discolor? Thanks! Ana

how is marble as a vanity top in terms of maintenance? love the smooth look, but concerned about water stains, with everyday use. thanks in advance...
I am updating bathroom in stages. Adding water closet and enlarging shower to approximately 5 feet wide and 4 feet deep. Using subway tile and honed Carrara marble basketweave with an insert of this

often not considered. One of the big things that make showers look more dirty is hard water... lime in the water. Put a good filter on the main water source coming into the house to clean that sediment from the water before it gets in.
to make bathing little ones easy and the faucet easily accessible.
I notice that there is a window inside the shower area. How about the concern of eventual water damage along the window sill? I have a large exterior window where I would like to add a shower feature to the bathtub in our remodel
love the look - does the glass door keep the water in the tub shower area?
I don't have trouble keeping water in the tub. There's minimal overspray from the shower. Clean up is a cinch.
Thanks for this tip as I am in the same boat of wanting access to the water but the clean look of glass. Does this alternative keep the water in the tub? When you swing the door open after
Most folks use tile or stone for window sills in wet areas so there won't be any water damage.
clever way of bringing a colorful design feature into a bland laundry. Tip: To prevent flooding ask your plumber to install a washing machine valve shutoff kit. These kits have a floor-mounted sensor that will detect any puddles and instantly shut off the water valve.
Laundry flooring requires just as much attention during the design process. With so much water in the room and a risk of leaks and flooding, you'll need to apply a waterproofing membrane before you lay down your flooring. Nonslip tiles are the
energy- and water-efficient models can save as much as 20 or so gallons of water per wash. If your family is anything like mine, you could easily save at least a few hundred or more gallons of water per week. And this doesn’t include the energy savings resulting from using less heated water.Some local

some sort so that the left facing wall can be tiled. I have a similar situation that this would be ideal for, but am worried about longevity and water tightness. Some more details would be great! Interesting use of space for sure.
in marble had to be created with a water jet. This made the cost of the product $100 to $150/SF. At The Builder Depot we have invested in modernized stone cutting machinery to enable us to cut curved edges with the saw process (a more cost effective method than water jet) The saw process allows us to

your every whim. Some days you might feel like an all-over body scrub, polish and moisturise; other days, all you might want to do is sit and let the water wash over you. A change is as good as a holiday, after all.

How do I make a small to medium sized water garden/fountain for inside my room
Houzz has SUCH great features. If you click on "more info" below the picture, you''ll see little green tags all over this photo. The one on the wall tells you the paint color--Ben Moore's Metropolis. Isn't that the best feature?!!!
No door on water closet to open up closet more.
The freestanding holder next to this toilet holds one roll in an easy position for use, with extras below. Keep a waste basket next to it for a place to discard the empties.
