This master bathroom started out with great bones. The vaulted ceiling, corner windows, and large floorplan set the stage for this room to become an inviting, functional, and beautiful space. The client had a few items on her wish list that included removing the built in tub that took up a ton of space and was never used, getting rid of the glass shower enclosure for easy cleaning, and keeping her existing vanity.
By removing the large built in corner tub with tile surround, we were able to expand the size of the shower and make the room feel bigger and more open. We then added in a smaller, free-standing tub that not only takes up less space, but makes a really beautiful focal point.
We kept the client’s original vanity as it was very functional and fit the space well. However, we did refinish it to update the wood from honey colored oak to a rich medium brown. We brought in the same granite as we put in the client’s kitchen to keep the materials consistent throughout the home. We also kept the room feeling bright and airy with light travertine for the flooring laid in a Versailles pattern for some eye-catching detail.
In the shower, the client really hated cleaning the previous glass surround so she wanted to eliminate as much glass as possible. We were able to expand the size of the shower and give her exactly what she was looking for. There is just a small amount of glass above two half walls to contain splashing, but we kept the door open for less maintenance. In the shower, we used more travertine with a decorative basket weave band and a darker tile as a border on the floor. It is a subtle, yet beautiful design.
To finish off the room, we brought in a round tufted ottoman in the client’s favorite aqua color with a rug underneath for some softness. This fills the empty space in the center of the rooms and provides a place to put on shoes before heading out the door. We also added a small chandelier above to add some ambiance and sparkle. Our client loves her new bathroom and so do we!
