Unbelievably, this 1980’s master bathroom started out with a corner shower and 2 white vanities as shown in left picture … We gutted the entire bathroom and created a double walk-in shower with fixed frameless glass, and a black river pebble base and wall accents. The shower walls are Travertine tile, as well as the new tub plinth and bathroom floor. Note the two fabulous bodyshower systems !! (I promise you this is the same camera angle before and after !! )
Here is the same camera angle showing before and after ….. the tub was removed, along with the built-ins and vanity. We also closed off the far closet
door (it has another door this end) and were able to install 9 feet of solid wood vanities with ‘Expresso’ finish. We added a solid granite slab for the top (St. Cecilia)
and two elegant Kohler porcelain sinks with oil rubbed bronze faucets. Note the additional storage cabinets on the far end for linens.
This project was very interesting as we used computerized 3D imaging to give the clients an idea of the finished product before we even started
demolition ! Of course, a few things changed, but on the whole it turned out pretty close I think you’ll agree.
Here’s a full view of the new tub …. we initially built a frame for the plinth, and ran new copper hot / cold feeds. The tub is 68″ x 44″ oval with jets and an inline heater to keep the water warm! The backsplash comprises 18×18 travertine tile (Tuscan Walnut) cut into 9×9 quarters and laid diagonally, with a small ‘pencil stone’ edge to finish off. The plinth top comprises 2×2 ceramic mosaics to match. The plinth sides are, again, travertine with a ‘Noce’ stone chair rail for a soft edge. Note the gorgeous oil rubbed bronze faucet with separate flexible handshower! Aaaaahhhh 🙂
Here’s a very cool view taken from INSIDE the shower (the water was off ….) Note the reflection of the glass blocks in the exterior wall, which replaced
a small window. The closet door is on the right. The wall finish is a light trowel finish texture with custom gray color.
This is looking into the new shower – there is a 28″ open walk-in on the left designed so the water does not splash out of the enclosure.
The glass block window gives plenty of light, but the skylight adds lots more. Note the angled cut on the top of the glass which is a nice design touch.
Finally, we also upgraded the guest bathroom by repainting the vanity, adding a granite top and porcelain vessel sinks, orb hardware, travertine tile on the tub walls
and floor, and new mirrors. A very elegant showpiece for your guests!
