What it looked like when I got to the job. Yeah......it was a mess.
New tile floor in place of linoleum. I also remodeled this entire bathroom & laundry room.
This was formerly a fiberglass bathtub. I converted it to a tile shower with fiberglass pan.
This was a valve replacement. Normally I would have just gone in from the back, but there was a marble walled shower directly opposite. So since we could not match the tile, I used a contrasting tile for the patch and tried to keep it symmetrical. Another option would have been to use a Stainless Steel repair plate, but the homeowner did not want that and in this instance it probably wouldn't have worked, since as you'll see in the next picture, I had to raise the height of the valve to allow room for the switch to a single handle valve.
