Bathroom Remodel

This last spring we had a bathroom moisture issue. Every time it rained hard I noticed pooling under the shower stall in the bathroom. It wasn't ever enough water that I thought it would flood the basement but it was concerning enough that I called a company to have it looked at. 
This is our bathroom before the remodel. It was fine.
It was also nothing special. 
 Unfortunately in order to fully assess the problem they had to remove the shower from the bathroom. It was just a fiberglass shower stall and not a huge loss. Thankfully they were able to figure out the problem and install a drain and sump pump to prevent any future issues. 

Well, that left us without a shower in our second of two bathrooms. Having a shower was a necessity. We considered (very briefly) putting in a new shower stall but the space where the old one sat blocked a window. I didn't love that we weren't utilizing as much light as possible. We called CASE Design to explore our options. They drew up some amazing plans! We decided to expand the shower area to a full 5 feet. We could have put in a tub if we wanted but we decided a gorgeous shower would be better fitting for the space. 
The shower stall was fine but behind that shower was a window.
And the more light I can get, the better. 

After tearing out the shower we LOVED all the
natural light that came pouring in.
Even though  it is a basement bathroom, it gets incredible light. 


It was so fun to pick out tile and plumbing fixtures.
It took some convincing but I finally got Jason to
agree to the yellow accent tile. Yellow is my
favorite color and honestly I think it is the biggest
 "wow" of the bathroom. 

The process was as seamless as I can imagine. Through CASE you sign a fixed price contract. That means you agree to the price before they start work and if there are any surprise costs, that is their problem, not mine. I know you pay a premium for this but it is so nice to know there won't be any extra costs involved. 

The timeline we were given was 4 weeks. It ended up taking 6 weeks because they had some last minute ordering issues for the mirror and a few other finishing touches. 

It was fabulous working with them. Their work is impeccable. If I didn't love something, I told them and they would fix it without any question. I LOVE the bathroom. Here's the finished product!

My husband and I once faced a similar dilemma but, unfortunately, for us the water did end up going down into the basement where it caused some issues. The good side of it was that I had a reason to remodel the bathroom that I could never of got my husband around to without the water damage happening. Pros and cons, right?

@Essie, yes, you are totally right! This bathroom was fine. It would have been probably a decade before we even considered touching it. I am so glad it got sent to the top of the list of things to do! I'm glad yours did too!
