Cottonwood Hts. Man's Bath oak vanity
This bathroom remodeling combines a former 3/4 hall bath with a walk-in closet off an adjoining guest bedroom. The oak vanity has a medium walnut stain finish, fabricated by Cabinet World. A 36" high vanity was specified for the tall man. Taller vanity cabinets are more popular these days for everyone, mostly at about 34" high. (You don't want water to be running up your arms to the elbow.) The brushed nickel lightbar, towel rack, and cup handle drawer pulls are from Home Depot, matching the bath plumbing fixtures.
Cottonwood Hts. Man's Bath vanity sink
This Kohler Memoirs self-rimming vanity sink features a Kohler Finial Traditional faucet in brushed nickel. The faucet has ceramic valves that wear-in over time and actually seal better. All plumbing fixtures supplied by Home Selections/Ferguson Plumbing. The fixtures are large and feel substantial. Tile countertop and stone backsplash mosaic was provided by Contempo Tile, installed by the Contractor.
Cottonwood Hts. Man's Bath toilet and overjohn cabinet
This bathroom remodeling makes full use of the gained combined space. The toilet area is in the former 3/4 bath area, and the vanity return wall marks the approx. walk-in closet wall partition. The new bathroom features three tile and stone trimmed Decora glass block panels to provide interest and maximize natural daylight. All tile and glass block was installed by the Contractor. The overjohn cabinet is used to store linens, provided by Cabinet World. The ceiling light also houses a high capacity NuTone fan vented outside to remove moisture from the room's shower/steamer and jetted tub. All drywall by Kelly McKean Drywall & Construction.
Cottonwood Hts. Man's Bath jetted tub
This is a LASCO Ariel III Lucite acrylic jetted tub, 72" long by 42" wide. It holds up to 67 gallons of water, and a large man! Of course, that requires large hot water heating capacity; in this case two 50 gal in-line water heaters for the large household. Consider water heater capacity in a bath remodeling if you want a jetted tub. 50 gal heater min recommended. The tub has molded arm rests, and a therapy seat comfort sloped back rest with 6 adjustable jets. The experts at Certain Kitchen & Bath helped to customize the tub jets locations. Six more adjustable jets massage the arms, legs, and feet. We added 2 brushed nickel grab bars to complement the Kohler Finial Traditional Roman tub faucet. The 2 hp run dry pump motor features a heat flow transfer system to keep water hot. There is a pump service access panel caulked into the right side skirt. The tub skirt shape is repeated by the profile of the ceiling drop above, which hides upstairs plumbing.

Who could wait to jump in to relax?
Cottonwood Hts. Man's Bath steamer/shower glass block view
The walk-in steamer/shower surround, to the left of the tub, is set in 12" Caracalla porcelain tiles, with this 8” Decora glass block bordered by Noce tumbled stones. Again, the glass block brings in more natural daylight to the shower. A soap dish and a shelf are convenient. The entire steamer/shower surround was waterproofed with a Mapei trowel-on membrane over tile backerboard as a first safeguard to contain steam water pressure. Behind the backerboard is felt-paper waterproofing membrane. Sheetrock fastened to studs gives the entire wall assembly a solid feel.
Cottonwood Hts. Man's Bath steam generator
The walk-in steamer/shower features this Steamist steam generator tucked under a built-in seat. A small panel in the hall provides easy service access, as viewed here from the hallway. A thermostatic control is mounted on a shower wall for easy and convenient operation. The steam generator has solid state electronics with easy diagnostics. There is a drained sheetmetal pan to contain any steam condensation overflow. Note that the shower surround was completely insulated and waterproofed to contain the steam heat. Attention to detail and careful planning counts in bathroom remodeling, especially here! Price range a for similar project: $30,000 - $40,000.
