Bathroom Remodel : Yonkers, New York

This bathroom‘s cast-iron tub was unsightly and the flush-o-meter toilet was on its last leg. The remodel called for the replacement of the cast-iron tub and the conversion from a flush-o-meter toilet to a standard one. The original space was small and dilapidated and would benefit from a complete gut renovation.

The Issue:

  • Small dilapidated space
  • Old cast-iron tub
  • Flush-o-meter toilet
  • Missed placed plumbing valves

The Mission:

  • To convert this outdated co-op bathroom to a modern space which will feature a new jet tub.

The Design:

A modern dark wood pedestal provides a nice contrast to the light-colored, 13 x 18 wall tiles. A deco tile accents the mid-point of the wall and a matching 13 x 13 tile was used on the bathroom floor in a diamond orientation. A deep soak acrylic jet tub replaces the old cast-iron one while a sleek shower door provides more style and function. A matching dark-wood-framed mirror sits above the vessel bowl sink and stylish glass shelves provide additional storage. This modern look is completed by the recessed ceiling lights and the European-style toilet.

The Construction:

The bathroom was completely gutted. The old plumbing for the standing waste was replaced. A dedicated electrical line was installed to provide power for the new jet tub. The 1 inch water line for the flush-o-meter toilet was converted to ½ inch copper tube with an angle valve which allowed for a regular tank & bowl toilet to be installed. Blocking was installed for all of the racks and shelves. A GFI outlet was added for functionality and the existing light fixture was relocated and changed. Recessed lighting was placed over the tub and the main section of the room. Each set with its own individual switch. Cement board was used for the walls in the shower area while moisture resistant sheetrock was installed everywhere else. The floor was cemented and leveled and the ceramic tiles installed in a diamond orientation. See the "before" and "after" transformation in the photos shown above.

"Wonderful renovation. I loved seeing your "before" and "after" pics since your bathroom is about the same size as mine. Didn't think anyone had a bathroom that small! LOL Loved the finished product. Well done. Enjoy!"
