One of the most common renovations we are asked to do are tub and shower surrounds – an instant way to update a house. Shower surrounds are typically done in a one row style or to the ceiling. They can be done with any kind of tile, however 12×12 or 13×13 is the most commonly used tile. Tub surrounds are done with any variety of tile and usually have a 3″-6″ mosaic insert as well. Another kind of install that we frequently do are in ensuite bathrooms. These usually consist of a stand up shower with a connected jacuzzi tub surround for a luxurious feel. Below are some examples and explanations of this kind of work.
