Morgan Park area of Chicago – Bathroom, Gut Remodel

Enjoy viewing the complete gut- bathroom-remodel in this historic home in the Morgan Park area of Chicago. The clients chose to remove the tub and install a walk-in shower as well as custom-shelving installed in its place. FRANCIS BRYAN REMODELING was happy to accommodate.  The clients also asked to have the original door converted into a pocket-door in order to save on space.  The new pocket-door looks great!  This second floor gut remodel included new copper plumbing and electrical runs through to the basement.  A new energy efficient, opaque window was installed as well as all new fixtures through out.  The clients chose a beautiful large format ceramic tile combined with a colorful mosaic tile for the walk-in shower.  To complete the new bath a European radiator/towel holder was custom installed.  This bathroom is not only stylish but it is warm and cozy as well.  The owners love to enjoy warm towels after a shower!

Below are some work in progress photos to view.

This project was the continuation of the luxury bath project detailed  in the previous post.   After the water closet, shower area was completed the home owner decided that they wanted the entire master bath to flow nicely with the same high end stone and glass materials through out.
In this project we replaced all of the gold fixtures with shiny chrome, gutted the entire ledge, step and floor surrounding the tub and rebuilt the step and surround installing the floor, step risers and top of the tub with stone tiles while installing complimentary mosaic stone tiles on the face of the step, installing a solid one piece step made of crema marfil honed marble and finished off the back splash area with the complimentary turquoise glass subway tiles installed vertically with a honed marble bull nose. Beautiful!

FRANCIS BRYAN REMODELING installs custom designed tile and glass block shower in Chicago’s South Suburbs


This shower/toilet room was completely gutted, reconfigured, designed and installed.
The beautiful natural stone tile with mosaic and glass inlay was selected by the client and combined beautifully with the custom built glass block wall shower enclosure. This new shower/toilet area nicely complements and refreshes the entire bath including the existing and adjacent dressing room/jacuzzi tub, double sink area.

FRANCIS BRYAN REMODELING Installs a Special Bathtub Combined with Custom Tile and Carpentry


This special tub was purchased by the client and shipped to the site. The existing walk in shower area was gutted and this tub system was installed raised above the systems works in order to create easy access for the client. Once the tub was installed, custom stone tile and cabinet and trim work was designed and installed by FRANCIS BRYAN REMODELING to create an atractive finished look.
