How to Install an Ovation Bathtub Door

Sharing is caring!

How to install an Ovation bathtub door. Ditch the dingy shower curtain and let light in with this beautiful bathroom upgrade.

We’ve been working on the kids’ bathroom renovation. Their bathroom is divided into two smaller rooms; a small room with the toilet and shower, and a larger room with sinks and a mirror. The 1990s style sink had one sink and a vanity area to sit and put on makeup. It really isn’t a practical space for three boys. We needed more space, and I wanted the toilet/shower room to feel more open.

I started by hiring a contractor to install a window in the room. This was pricey, but worth it. The natural light really makes the space feel more open and less dingy. He also removed the old tub and installed a new Ovation Tub. The contractor also installed cement board which is a special type of “drywall” that is made for wet environments; true drywall can’t be exposed to moisture.

Once he was finished, I applied Redgard as a waterproof barrier between the cement board and the tiling. I added waterproof Dumawall Tiles from the DIY Decor Store, then we installed this door. Keep an eye out on my blog for new projects in my bathroom renovation project- there’s lots more to come!

Installing the door was much easier than I anticipated. We installed a DIY Screen Door and a storm door in the past two years, and this was far easier than either of those projects.
