Bathroom Renovation: Walk-Through Shower & Soaker Tub

Emerald Forest

College Station, TX

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!
