J R Bathroom 2009 September 29, 2011Bathrooms2009, alcove tub, Bathrooms, curved rod, drop, shampoo cubby, Undermount sinkalex A drop-in tub was used in an alcove. Special attention was paid to the installation of a tile flange where the tub meets the three walls. This application allowed us to create a tiled skirt on the front of the tub. The same accent tile used for the tub or shower surround is often used as a vanity backsplash, to tie the room together. The closet and entry doors were sanded and stained to match the finish of the vanity and mirror.
