Bathroom Remodel - Roseville CAThe owners of this gorgeous Roseville CA home removed a large soaking tub from their master bathroom and wanted to replace it with luxury barrier free (curbless) shower enclosure. The original bathroom floor plan included the double vanity and soaking tub in large main area with the shower and toilet in an adjacent room. This was a particularly difficult job because of the amount of demolition required to complete the job.
It was necessary to wet cut the concrete for the new plumbing and to recess the floor four inches for the barrier free shower entry. Small electric demolition hammers were used to break up the concrete and grinders were use to make the floor level and smooth. The use of a high efficiency air filtration system (HEPA), used on nearly all of our jobs, made it possible to complete this job without destroying the entire house with dust (see HEPA under the Resources tab).
The bathroom and surrounding areas were encapsulated, floor to ceiling, with plastic sheeting. The travel pattern to the master bathroom was across ceramic tile and light colored carpet. All floor surfaces were covered specialized protective materials to prevent damage during the remodel.
The tile feature was created after the owners found a waterfall and pond patten online and asked us to adapt it to their job. As you can see in the pictures this is what we came up with including the pebble tiles and a ceramic plank floor. The pebbles cascade vertically down the wall and puddle into the free-form pond floor. In the adjacent shower/toilet room the existing fiberglass shower pan was removed and was plumbed for a stack-able washer and dryer, and 36' utility cabinet. Matching tile baseboards were installed and the room was painted to match the existing as close as possible.
The master bathroom was separated from the bedroom with only an archway. Light and noise from the bathroom would flood into the bedroom and was a constant annoyance. However, the owners did not want to separate the rooms entirely with a standard door. Louvered doors provided just enough privacy when needed and allowed for the opening to remain unobstructed when not in use.
