These drawings show the tile layout. Walls moved: No, but one nonstructural half-wall was removed.Plumbing moved: Yes. Everything was reconfigured. The shower head switched walls, and the sink plumbing was rerouted from the wall up through the floor.Plumbing replaced: Yes, and electricalProfessionals hired: Forteza acted as designer and builder.Special features: Frameless glass without door. “It makes it look nice and clean,” Forteza says. Splurges: Plumbing fixtures and custom cabinets. “Try to splurge and be happy,” Forteza says. “The difference between a Home Depot cabinet and a custom cabinet is not going to cost your mortgage. You’re going to be looking at it every single day. You might as well save up more and be happy with it.”Savings: Off-the-shelf tile from a big-box store. “I usually buy tiles from a special tile supplier, but I saw this for a bargain price and bought a bunch,” he says. He also saved on design and building fees by doing the work himself. ♦︎Find a bathroom designer
