A bathroom renovation is a great way to spruce up your home. This Basking Ridge home had a bathroom which had many problems common in aging bathrooms. In only one week our team was able to reinvent this bathroom with a new shower pan, shower bench, and shower surround tile installation.
The original shower pan was old and moldy, and in desperate need of a replacement.
To begin this project our team removed the shower door, the shower pan and completely gutted the area. The plumbing was adjusted to accommodate a new, lower, hand-held shower head; a piece of hardware that is a popular choice for homeowners who want to add hardware that will safely allow for more accessibility.
Our team always takes great measures to properly protect your home as we work. Here you see the bathroom doorway has been thoroughly blocked.
For the new shower pan a rubber membrane was put in place with a concrete floor on top of it, followed by a cement board. The tiles were then installed on top of the cement board.
A new custom built bench was created by Monk’s and installed into the shower to provide a safe in-shower seating area.
Each piece of wood was carefully measured and cut to perfectly fit the homeowners’ vision.
Next the new fixtures, the shower head, and handles were installed and the entire shower surround was tiled.
Our team at Monk’s worked hard to match the tile of the new shower install with the existing tiles in the bathroom. The homeowners did not want the new tiles to clash, but they also didn’t want to have to change the tiles in the entire bathroom. Our team at Monk’s installed new tiles that worked well with the bathroom’s original tiles.
Another great project completed by Monk’s! If you want to see a similar project check out this other bathroom remodel in Chatham, NJ 07928.
