How do you turn on the shower without getting a blast of cold water? - Beautiful bathroom! We are looking at doing a similar size shower but with a single panel of glass starting at the fixture end of the shower and open at the end. But wondering how we can avoid walking in and turning the water on without getting sprayed with cold water....any feedback would be appreciated, thank you!

HI. its been almost a year now and we still love the new bath. getting the glass clean is a little problem. i put rainX on it and it works really well. there are some spots and now after trying everything i think the spots are some rainX that i did not get completely off on the initial application. i am going to reapply and do a better job of wiping it off, that should get rid of those left over smudges hopefully. another thing i have noticed. on the one wall we left the original shower and i noticed with the bigger shower head it does have as much water pressure as the shower that we have hooked to what used to be tub water lines. if i had it to do over i would make sure the water supply lines were the same size. its not a big deal but there is a slight difference in water.

You can order your glass shower enclosure with special treatment they apply to the glass. I had mine done and I garruntee you will never have to use any cleaner of any kind to clean your glass. Just squeegee the glass with a silicone squeegee after each use and wipe off any water you missed with a soft towel. You’ll not see one water spot on the glass. I have had my glass door for two years and it still looks the same as the day it was imstalled

I weigh 160 pounds and still would not trust a wall mount toilet. I’m more for safety when it comes to my toilet then having it look pleasing to the eye. It’s not like I’m going to entertain guest in the bathroom. The style of my toilet is the last thing on my mind when I have to use it. As long as it’s clean is all I care about.

This feature doesn't make sense in this application, judging by the location of the access door to the shower, one would have to be already standing in the water to do a toe-test. But you're right Tracy...the client can have whatever they want, it's their house!

When using 3/8" or 1/2" glass, the green (iron) in the glass can change the color of the stone/tile walls inside the shower. The cost of low iron glass (Starphire) shouldn't cost you more than $100-$150 more in a shower this size.

Ahh, an iPad issue! That explains the missing tags on other images. I've had issues with my iPad being compatible with other applications with the reason given by one company is ôthey find it hard to keep up to Apple's updates...but they try. I imagine many other smaller companies with limited tech resources/ staff are in the same boat.

Yes, hopefully Houzz can add a fix to a future app update. Until then I appreciate any professionals who are aware of this little glitch with tags and provide info like room size. This is a great little bathroom BTW! One of my faves on Houzz. We like to call our MB the master closet LOL! This image confirms my instinct to keep our reno simple with min trends.

If the spout were higher, it would be useful for filling a cleaning bucket. As it is, it is wasted. It also seems like a bit of a trip hazard, or at least something to hit your ankles on.

Does this toe tester also drain all the shower pipes so that there is no water resting in them to momentarily freeze you when you first switch from "toe test" mode to "showerhead?" Now THAT would serve a purpose!

Why not the Maax Foot Tester? It is discreet, designed exactly for this purpose and looks nothing like a tub spout. See it at http://www.maax.com/en/products/spa-therapies/shower-systems/water-tester. Chrome definitely, Brushed Nickel possibly, other finishes probably not.

Yes, I am a professional builder with a thorough knowledge of codes. Even way back before mixers were required.., and a tester of any kind was never required by any nationally recognized model codes.

If you can't give me a year and code number, then you should probably just drop it or admit you are wrong.

Most people just turn the shower head away before turning it on. They have never required padded walls and grab bars in the shower either :D

It is not required by code:) It was a personal preference of my client as mentioned in the numerous answers if you scroll down in 'more info' section. He simply wanted to test the temperature before turning on the volume control, he could have easily turned the head away too:) I find it fascinating that this little detail has sparked so many queries on this photo!

This shower does have a threshold to prevent water from coming out but you can easily do a zero threshold by grading the floor towards the drain. This client opted for threshold. It was done on top of the base to keep the look uniform throughout.

It is also possible to create a zero threshold doorless (for either a walk in or roll in shower) as well by using a "shower base former" and waterproofing kit.

We did something very similar with a bath when we removed the tub, even the tile is similar. However, instead of two glass panels which would have been a bit problematic for stability, we just did one glass door to the show and where the other glass panel is (with the bar at top) we did a walll of the tile next tot he toilet. It is dramatic and receives many complements.

If you are referring to the bulkhead it is a dropped bulkhead to allow for ductwork that we could not re-locate. Prior to the renovation the entire ceiling was dropped making the shower much shorter so we removed what we could.

I can assure you it is. It was purchased in 2007 and the elongated toilet seat was replaced so perhaps that is why there is some confusion:) There are a ton of newer Toto toilets that are very similar if not nicer as this look is now not current.

Hello, Tracey. I sent you the lengthy inquiry earlier. This is the project in question. Beautiful work. Really. BTW, since my last email I found that you indicate the width of shower is 38. Which looks more plausible than the 42 I read somewhere in the QA. I am sending from right below the image. If no image is included, please let me know, of course. Thanks so much,

Rick

Hi Rick,
Perfect...thank you so much! To answer your earlier question the bulk head there was existing to hide ductwork so we had to work around that. It previously was in the tub area as well but we removed that to make the ceilings look as high as possible and to allow for better ventilation. The glass does not go all the way to the ceiling as you thought, only to the bottom of the bulkhead so there is plenty of room for moisture to escape the shower and therefore it was not required to tile the ceiling.
You do need to allow for ventilation unless you are planning to turn it into a steam shower. There is no real rule for how much is enough but I would say at least 12" from the ceiling to the top of the glass is sufficient. With no window like this bathroom a good fan is a must as well!

As per above it is a personal preference. In this case it definitely would have interfered it the style. It is not a high use bathroom as it was for guests so we opted for a mildew resistant paint finish. It is just water and splash marks can be easily wiped. If it had a higher use I would have considered a low profile tile backsplash or even a clear glass shield on the wall.

I can't imagine this kind of mirror with a backsplash under it either (maybe if it had been bigger) but it's perfect as if now. Great work on this bathroom.

Not sure why you are having difficulty reading the tag. It simply says the mirror was custom made. If you right click over the image the product tags appear just fine. You may need to try another browser as yours may be blocking some of these out. Or alternatively you can try contacting Houzz for support and answers to question on how to use their site.

I have never had any issues with the handhelds and much prefer them to a fixed head. Female clients especially like them because they are great for shaving. Perhaps your plumber was working with inferior quality models.

Typically the handheld shower assembly raises and lowers and will lock into the desired postion to accomodate people of varying heights. A good quality locking mechanism is important. The swivel will not lock into place and usually moves just by pushing with your hand. I have not had it be an issue, nor have I had any complaints from clients. It is my preference to keep the shower walls as clean as possible and the choice of the handheld is not for an improved aesthetic but rather an improved function so go with what makes the most sense for you.

This is for Linda I think I read you were planning on selling in the next year. I would stay away from the green and stay with neutral colors as above. Therefore, if someone does not like green they will still buy your house. Most people do not want to repaint when moving in. What if they already have burgundy accessories or something that does not go with green. I used to flip houses and have watched "Designed to sell" on HGTV a lot. It really is not what you particularly like if you are going to sell; but what looks good but can appeal to the masses. Just thought I would try to help.

Bathrooms vary depending on the size of the space/materials used and existing conditions. This for example was all natural stone, was a bath conversion, custom glass enclosure etc. I always recommend clients budget $20-25K all in for a average bathroom renovation.

Most frameless glass enclosures use tempered 3/8” glass. For taller than typical enclosures 1/2” thick glass is a suitable choice. More textures are available in 3/8”. Exceptionally tall showers are better served by 1/2” glass. I suggest you contact your local glass supplier that will be doing the installation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The Top 20 Bathrooms of 2011
1. The small strips of marble tile on the shower wall add visual interest to this otherwise simple bathroom design. Users loved the creamy beige paint on the walls, and the designer's choice to keep the ceiling white.
Toronto Interior Design Group | Yanic Simard added this to What to Ask When Considering Heated Floors
How Is Radiant Heating Installed?Every manufacturer has subtle differences, but there are two main types of installation: wet and dry. Wet installations are embedded in concrete during the initial build (that is, when the concrete is still “wet") or in a layer of additional concrete added for this purpose. Dry installations are layered below or above the subfloor (or sometimes sandwiched between two layers of subfloor) and below the finished flooring. Dry installation systems are newer technology and the more popular choice for new installations. They’re especially good when retrofitting a system into an existing home because they don’t require additional concrete to be poured.
