My Broken Ice Cream Cone Master Bath :(
Hi all! I posted a few weeks back about some weird mirrored shelves we have in our master. Well, that was really just the first issue on a looooong list!
It's time to re-do this bad boy. It's the only full bath in our DC condo, it is 17 years old, and it is *not* in good shape.
The bathroom has weird mirrored shelves, a useless toilet, a sad-sad vanity, and a marble shower that is in disrepair. We are a corner building so the unit is shaped like an ice-cream cone. The living room, at the front, is the rounded ice cream, and this sad bathroom is the bottom of the cone.
Here are a few pics and the floor plan:
We can figure out the mirrored shelves (with your previous help!), and the vanity & toilet can be easily replaced, but we are really stumped on the shower. It is HUGE. Really, it feels like it could easily shower 6-10 people at once. Not only is it big, but we have some tiles that are popping along the bottom and some tiles in disrepair. We got an estimate to re-do the entire shower, for $6k-$9k, but that is extremely expensive for us.
Can anyone suggest a simple solution that does not involve a complete shower gut and re-do? And even if we wanted the shower re-tiled, should it really cost that much? We are pretty avid DIYers, but I was going to draw the line at this project, given the complexities of a shower. But a $9k estimate can make your head spin! Thank you in advance!
