Master Bath Retreat
A No Nonsense Approach

This master bath was originally designed in 1992.  The blue floor tile and heavily glazed walls needed to be updated.  The cabinets were distressed with multiple layers of paint and the layout was not serving the homeowner.

In the corner was a very large cultured marble tub which took up a great amount of space.  Although rarely used, it needed to be replaced to free up valuable square footage in the room.  The shower was crowded in the adjacent corner yet was the most used area of the room.  Bordered with a double mirror door leading to the closet, we needed to figure out a way to make it larger and more usable by the over 6′ tall husband.

By changing the closet door opening to a single door, we were able to widen the shower by 15″.  The tub was aligned against the back wall and over-sized width was traded for a very deep 26″ air tub.  Chiseled edge travertine was used on the floor and walls to give a Tuscany feel.  The designer work very hard to chose materials that would support the new layout and give it a very warm feel – a challenge made difficult by the 14′ high ceilings.

New cabinets with breakfronts were created and topped with a dark travertine counter top.  The under mount sinks keeps the counter tops clean and large.  Individual framed mirrors give the tall walls some texture and color.
