Walk-Through Shower & Soaker Tub Bathroom Reno

We recently completed a bathroom renovation for some wonderful clients, James and Becky. Their master bathroom had an elevated shower which they were hoping to remove. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the original construction of the shower, we were unable to lower it to ground level without extensive foundation work, so we gave it a complete update instead. We widened the steps in and out of the shower for safety, expanded the length and width of the shower, removed the shower doors, and updated all of the tile and fixtures.

We installed travertine tile throughout the shower walls and tub surround, with an mosaic arabesque tile used as accents around the shower head and inset shelves.

A fixed shower head and separate body sprayer were installed.


Custom door fronts were made for the front of the tub surround to match the doors on their existing vanity.

Their vanity area had been recently updated, so we left that alone, and simply replaced the floor tile throughout with a wood-grain tile.

Becky chose a rectangular soaker tub to replace their existing tub. This allowed us to make room for the shower expansion.

We love the three different tiles and fixtures Becky chose, and how they bring together the unique elements of this bathroom. It was such a pleasure working with James and Becky!


Complete Home Remodel

Our client, Jim, had a rental property with water damage. They had to gut the entire kitchen and both bathrooms, and we were contacted to lead the remodels. We built custom cabinets for the kitchen and installed granite counters, arabesque tile backsplash, floating shelves, and new appliances. We also had the entire exterior of the home painted and installed new carpet in the bedrooms, and refinished the hardwood floors in the living spaces.

We removed the cabinet and accordion doors over the peninsula to open up the kitchen to the main living room.

We installed new custom vanities, linen storage, and granite counters to match the kitchen. Subway tile surround was installed in both showers.


It was such a pleasure to work with Jim and his family. We love how they chose finishes that give the home a clean and unique update without taking away from its mid-century style. If you or someone you know is interested in a rental property just a block from campus in the College Station historic district, check out their listing here:
