    Yes, it is a plastic junk (shower booth). I want to remove it and maybe it could be a good man's project. The floor tiles are probably the only thing I would keep. I agree with you on all the rest. Surprisingly, improvements like this are cheaper than what I had thought. 2-3k USD?

    Depends on the materials. Ceramic or porcelain is way cheaper than stone, and replacing the shower hardware can ne pricey too, but for a small bathroom and keeping the cabinetry, I would say about 3.5.

    I just remodelled our master, replaced the tub with a 5x3 shower, marble floors and new lighting and it finished at 4600. Did it all myself, though, so mo (direct) labor costs.

    Wow, SeaJean! That is a hell of a remodel. The bathroom looks great and kudos to you for doing it yourself!

    Doesn't an undershirt keep you warmer? Which would be defeating the purpose

    You've left out "Guinea T" Those of you from NY and NJ know what I am talking about. I suppose the PC version would be "Italian American Undergarment"

    I guess I'm kind of weird. I have this view in front of me, and I'm in here reading about bathroom improvements:

    1. I don't know. But covering the armpit necessitates sleeves, and once you have sleeves, all bets are off.
    2. No, but they are not 60 count cardboard
    3. Americans think no undershirt is a show of machismo (or connosseurship: "I want to feel the fine dress shirtings, I tells ya"). Non-Americans think the undershirt is intself a show of machismo.

    Honestly, no clue. I'm all undershirted out. I always wanted to talk about undershirts (see older threads), but I didn't think someone would keep pace with me up to here. Completely excited to talk about underpants, though.

    Apologies for interrupting a very interesting discussion about bathrooms, but I've just torn two of my favourite Borrelli shirts in one week. Does anyone know a good online source for them, other than shopthefinest? Thanks!

    You'll only get the staples from shop the finest. Other online retailers carry dead stock with weird colors and patterns

    Check yoox, ehaberdasher.com and tiedeals

    More my style. No need for pesky glass doors. I really miss showers like this. Bloody Brits have appalling bathrooms.
