In an effort to keep the bathroom’s historic character, the original scope of the project involved simply replacing the shower, but the project quickly grew.For the shower, the homeowner wanted a curbless entry and a linear drain, so the team restructured the floor to create the appropriate slope to avoid a curb. Though the original floor tile was in a state of disrepair and could not be salvaged, McKeachie snagged a nearly identical style to replace it with. The shower walls are clad in faux marble tile from Neolith. The man-made material is less porous than marble and therefore better suited to wet-room applications.
