Master Bathroom Becomes Spa Retreat
It is always a pleasure to remodel well-built homes, as was the case with this McNary Estates project. Homeowners Walt and Doris asked C&R to renovate their master bathroom. Initial planning focused on replacing the existing fiberglass shower. They felt the shower size felt a bit out of scale with the rest of the spacious bathroom. And as with all fiberglass units, years of scrubbing had made it increasingly difficult to clean.
C&R designed a new tile shower that nearly doubles the original size. Vertical accent tiles create a waterfall effect and relate strongly to the existing green tile floor.
The homeowners still had three of the original floor tiles from when the house was built. C&R carefully planned the new shower footprint to make sure those tiles would fill any gaps. Happily, it all worked out perfectly!
Since maintenance was an issue with the old shower, C&R specified epoxy grout and water repellent glass for the custom enclosure. These two elements will make cleaning much easier.
The original bathroom cabinets were still in excellent condition, and C&R installed sleek new hardware in a coordinating finish. This hardware provides a contemporary touch to the traditional cabinetry.
Master Bath upgrades include:
- New angled custom tile shower
- New hardware to extend cabinet life
- New soaking tub replacing old jetted Jacuzzi
- New lighting fixtures
- New tile tub deck and surround
- New Quartz countertops
- New tile backsplash
- Wallpaper removal, walls painted neutral color
- Water closet area opened up, new half wall built to maintain privacy

Walt and Doris chose to take a vacation during most of the remodel. While away, they were able to stay in touch via C&R’s online project management program. The program allowed them to view progress photos, make comments, and monitor the real-time construction schedule.
At a recent open house, Walt and Doris were pleased to show off their completed project to friends. “We love our bathroom and are very happy with the look, style, clean lines… everything!”
We are delighted that they are now working with C&R to design and plan their kitchen remodel. Thank you, Walt, and Doris, for choosing C&R!
