Master Bathroom Remodeling

Bathroom Remodeling – So Many Ideas

Master bathroom remodeling ideas can cover so many different styles.  But let’s talk about what the trends that we are seeing out in the field.  A lot of homes that we work in now have large soaker tubs and smaller showers.  These showers can be as small as 80 to 100 square foot.

Master Bathroom Remodeling – Soaker Tub

A lot of folks are looking to get rid of that big soaker tub because they never really used it. We always find the same story.  They used it the first couple of years and then the kids got in there and they squirt a little soap in the jets. The jets bubble up and there was you know suds all over the place.

Walk-In Showers

We are now starting to get asked to get rid of the soaker jacuzzi tubs.  We are being asked to put in large, walk-in showers.  I’m a pretty big guy so I mean you walk in some of these showers and the door is only 24 to 28 inches wide. It’s not a lot of room to get into these smaller showers. So we are doing a lot of walk-in showers with bigger doors. In some cases some with no doors.

Perfectly Pitched Shower Floors

What will happen is if the pan is not poured correctly and it’s not pitched or sloped to the drain, you will have areas in the shower where water will sit.  So what can be the problem for you if it’s not poured properly?

  • One: you have standing water okay. You don’t want standing water, it wears on any sort of material that it’s sitting on.
  • Two: mold and mildew. You are going to see areas where you are going to get a little mold, a little bit mildew which smells, it’s not good for your health.

So you definitely want to make sure that when it’s poured, make sure it’s tested and make sure that it’s sloped down properly.
