A Luxurious Bathroom for Two
— NORTH ALBANY, OR —
The theme for this master bathroom was luxury and relaxation. Tile wainscotting, an elegant freestanding tub, a generously sized custom-tiled shower, and granite countertops are just a few highlights.
More about this project
The homeowners couldn’t wait to modernize and expand their cramped corner shower. A simple tile mural adds interest to the design, while a tiled 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!
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 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 attractive 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 is on the countertops. It was a creative and elegant solution!
Colors and themes are carried throughout the bathroom but varied to create visual interest. The four-foot-high tile wainscot is topped by a high-relief accent border that 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 same mosaic tile as 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 “builder standard” look of the cabinetry. To create a more custom look, the cabinets were painted and topped with luxurious granite countertops, a pair of rimmed sinks that evoke the rim of the tub, oil rubbed bronze hardware, and matching fixtures.
