Bathroom Remodeling Idea: Integrated Bathtub and Shower Bench

Bathrooms come in all shapes and sizes, which can affect the layout and design of the space. If a stand-alone shower and bathtub are important items in your bathroom remodel, but you are short on square footage, then an integrated bathtub and shower bench might be right for you.

“With this bathtub-meets shower solution, the tub deck is extended into the shower stall, becoming a suitable bench,” said Normandy Designer Liz Reifschneider. “We then set the shower glass between the two.”

“Overall, this provides a very clean, continuous look,” added Liz.

Typically, this integrated bathtub and shower bench combo consists of solid material, like a slab of granite or marble.

“The tub deck needs to be a solid piece of stone because it can handle consistent exposure to moisture,” said Liz. “You need to avoid grout lines because, over time, they can let water seep in.”

The end result is a spa-like bathroom with a sleek and cohesive look. Plus, in addition to adding a touch of luxury, the shower bench has plenty of advantages, including a spot to relax, store toiletries or use as support when shaving your legs.

Normandy Powder Rooms Get a New Look

If you’ve stopped by our showroom lately, you might have noticed that we’ve freshened up our powder rooms.

The first powder room has a soft yet glamorous aesthetic. It features an elegant, stone mosaic accent wall that is paired with shiny chrome sconces and plumbing fixtures. If you so happen to use this restroom, there is one high-tech amenity that will most likely stand out – the toilet. Manufactured by Kohler, this loo features a side panel that controls a heated bidet seat.

The second powder room, designed by Normandy Designer Ann Stockard, makes quite the statement with black, high-gloss walls and a hand-rubbed, antique brass light fixture. A stone mosaic flooring and polished nickel plumbing fixtures also pull this sleek and stylish look together.

Come on out to our 8,000 square foot showroom to see our array of vignettes and product samples. Or, learn more about the remodeling process by registering to attend one of our upcoming seminars.
