Simple Solutions. At our 4th Meetup two weeks ago, John Belitsky was the first contractor to present.

His idea? A homegrown solution to revamping your bathroom without replacing the tub et al. His kneewall design, while simple, was a refreshingly good idea for New York's many challenged bathrooms and allowed folks to spend less on a makeover...

While certainly not a typical presentation, the emphasis on usefulness and simplicity was refreshing.

The T|S|G Custom Knee Wall. Originally designed to conceal tub aprons and reuse existing bathtubs, the knee wall has become a staple in our bathroom renovations for both functional and aesthetic purposes. The T|S|G Custom Knee Wall is simply built in front and above the existing tub ledge to create a seamless custom fa├žade. The tub itself can be refinished, providing the feeling that the tub is brand new and "built in".

The big bonus here is that this design, which costs hundreds of dollars to implement, allows you to refresh your bathroom without removing or replacing the tub, which costs thousands.
