The theme for this master bathroom was luxury and relaxation. Tile wainscot, an elegant freestanding tub, a generously sized custom tiled shower and granite countertops are just a few highlights.
A simple graceful freestanding tub replaced the existing tub and dated tub deck. This visually enlarged the room by allowing more visible floor space and gave the tub a better stage to present itself.
The homeowners couldn’t wait to modernize and expand their cramped corner shower. A simple tile mural adds interest to the design while a bench, shampoo niche, and rain shower head provide some of the creature comforts. Mosaic floor tile provides excellent traction and a custom frameless shower door swings both in and out for easy access. This spacious shower is a delight!
The homeowners asked for an oil rubbed bronze tub filler that would match their hardware throughout the rest of the house. It was important to them that the tub filler look good from both the front and back and that chrome pipes not be showing. Since a tub filler with oil rubbed bronze pipes that matched the other hardware wasn’t available, a custom pedestal was designed using the same granite that’s on the countertops. It was a creative and elegant solution!
Colors and themes are carried throughout the bathroom but varied to create visual interest. Four foot high tile wainscot with a high relief accent border adds a distinctive Old World touch to the space. The wainscot tile is repeated in the floor, with the added touch of a border using the mosaic of the shower floor.
The existing Oak vanities were structurally sound, but the finish was wearing off and the homeowners wanted to get away from the look of the “builder standard” oak cabinet. To do this the cabinets were painted and topped with luxurious granite countertops, under mount sinks, modern oil rubbed bronze hardware and matching plumbing fixtures.
Now the bathroom is picture perfect!
