Before
After
Just like the kitchen we did in this same house (See Morningside Kitchen Remodel) this master bath has tons of white- tile, cabinetry and counters. Lots of space here but the odd window locations  presented some challenges. You can see how the new chocolate tile flooring and tub deck warm up what was a very large, cold room. The rework of the shower to enlarge it and include a bench integrated with the tub deck was the “Ah Ha” moment in designing this space. The “Zen-like” sconce was a great choice the homeowners made in defining the sense of serenity is this room.  We selected a waterfall fixture to keep it below the window sill and placed the controls on the front of the deck for access.
The very long, single height vanity was common when this home was built. More space = more stuff. No thought went into “type of stuff” that needed to be stored or the fact that we spend lots of waking hours in our bathrooms so they should be inviting spaces… A fantastic new vanity with a raised storage cabinet separating the two generous lavatory areas was our solution. Moving them was not an option with those darn windows and doors everywhere! And, the homeowners liked them side-by-side. The custom cabinets are a Wenge veneer with limestone countertops and a custom blended mosaic backsplash. To add even more emphasis to the splash we used wall-mounted fixtures with a modern flair. Mirrors framed with the cabinet material and a spectacular pendant finish this area of the room.
Another shot of  the tub wall. We’re still not sure why the window is in the nook???  No exterior reason and certainly no interior one but because it is a brick house, it stayed. We love this photo and as you can see, we put a slipper-style chair in the window corner (knee wall gone). It’s a nice spot to finish your “look” since the full length mirror and chair are just outside the walk-in closet which was too small for either.
A detailed shot of the vanity shows the amazing custom blended glass tile and the wall-mount faucet. The glass tile is also around the tub and in the shower niche. And the final finish is a pebble floor for the shower. Great on tired feet and pleasing to the eye. What a great time we had helping our homeowners with this one!
