Painted bathroom and shower shelf ideas: Depending on your style of room you can give an item of furniture a really individual look with stamped or stenciled motifs. To protect the finish from scratches and minor damage, apply three coats of varnish, leaving it to dry thoroughly between coats according to the manufacturer's instructions. We can help with such projects!
The presence of plumbing fixtures along a wall, or along a corresponding wall in the room directly opposite or above, indicates pipes within the wall that must be moved. If the plumbing ends at the existing fixtures, it can be removed and capped. Supply pipes and small branch drains passing through the wall to fixtures above can usually be rerouted. But large drains and soil stacks usually must be left in place and concealed.
Once you know where you can best place the new services, make a floor plan of the room, indicating the locations and dimensions for wall, doors, windows, and plumbing and electrical outlets. Follow the plan as closely as you can in every step of the remodeling process, from running plumbing and electrical lines to arranging fixtures and appliances.
Capping Pipe Info: For all you DIYers, all pipes should be sealed when a fixture is removed. Supply lines with shutoff valves require only tape over the valve outlet hole to keep debris out. But drains and supply lines without shutoff valves should be tightly capped. If the pipe is threaded, put pipe dope on the male threads and screw on a matching threaded cap. Elbows and couplings, which have female threads, require plugs.
For plastic tubes, solvent weld a matching plastic cap; for copper tubes, solder on a copper cap.
Additional shower tips: If you have an attached shower door, you will have to remove this before you remove your shower stall of tub and shower combination unit. If you have a shower stall with a hinged door, you will need only to unscrew the hinges from the wall, remove the door, and unscrew the rest of the frame.
Any parts that have been set with putty or other sealant will have to be knocked or pried loose. Sliding glass doors are not appreciably more difficult, though there is less chance of breaking the glass if you have an assistant hold them while you work. All that is needed is a hammer and screwdriver in most cases.
