“His” Rich & Elegant Ensuite Renovation
One of three bathroom renovations we completed for our clients in their south Winnipeg home. The existing bathroom was….boring. Even for the 90’s when this space was probably last updated, this ensuite bathroom was plain and forgettable. On top of the fact that it had nothing visually appealing going on, for a bathroom that get’s used daily, it had a comically small acrylic shower that desperately needed to be ripped out and expanded.
To create a much larger walk in shower we removed the existing one piece shower as well as a closet from an adjoining guest bedroom that wasn’t really being used. This gave us the room to construct a custom, full size walk in tile shower. Large format 12”x24” porcelain tiles cover the shower floor and walls, and are accented with a really unique stripe of mosaic tile that we also used around the vanity mirror. The entire shower is waterproofed with Schluter Systems products, expertly installed by our certified installers. Quartz was selected for the vanity countertop as well as the shower curb and niche shelves. The dark maple vanity we installed is both subtle and elegant. The large glass shower doors let in lots of light from the LED fixtures. We also put an LED light in the shower itself to add some atmosphere to the space and highlight the tile installation.
The best part about this shower is the linear drain we used in the shower. It is our preferred drain style to use on our custom showers as it both looks more visually striking and is easier to maintain and clean than a traditional style shower drain.
