A couple came into me after buying a new home nearby. They loved the home, but hated the bathrooms – they were outdated and awkwardly laid out. We did three of their bathrooms, but the one I want to share with you today is the Master Bath, because the transformation left me speechless.
The layout of the bathroom was horrible – a small tub and small shower, with the large vanity under an angled ceiling. The couple wanted a spa-like feel, with a large shower and free-standing tub. It seemed impossible, but we were able to do it with some imagination and a lot of hard work.
We moved the shower into the alcove where the tub was, doubling the size and allowing for a beautiful custom glass door. We then moved the vanity to where the shower was, leaving room for a beautiful free-standing bath. Behind the Bain Ultra bath we created a feature wall with ledgerstone, which was the one element this couple knew they HAD to have in the space. It goes beautifully with the wood-look porcelain floor. For the shower they chose a large scale porcelain tile to keep with the spa feel of the space.
For the vanity area, the couple chose an open look with the Interlude vanity by Bertch. They chose a rich dark brown, which pops against all of the lighter earthy tones. The Kallista Bellis faucets and Robern Bryn Mawr medicine cabinets add a traditional touch to this bathroom.
