Phillip Gorlin Master Bathroom Remodel
In this addition of bathroom remodeling 101, we went from old and dingy to contemporary and clean. The walls were a Tuscan knife finish with very uneven texture so, we sanded all the walls and skimmed to a flat finish (walls and ceilings). We installed new ventilation and recessed lights as well as 2 new vanity light fixtures. We did keep the existing layout. We framed in a new tub deck for a 30×60 soaking tub and got rid of the pony wall. We used engineered stone for the tub deck, vanity countertops, shower curb, niche sills and window sills (all matching top surfaces). The new shower system has a diverter for a handheld sprayer and a extended shower neck for a rain head shower head. We enclosed the shower with 3/8″ frameless glass with a transom door entrance. We replaced both vanity cabinets and medicine cabinets with custom shaker painted cabinets and engineered stone countertops. We matched all the finishes down to the door hinges. This bathroom took about 7 weeks to complete.
