This 1970’s master bathroom had some unique problems in that, although it was a large total area overall, it was split up into two definite his/hers bathrooms creating a ‘corridor’ effect down the middle, with a split 2-sided shower. Unfortunately, the two existing toilets could see each other through the old shower glass. (Awkward). We completely demolished all dividing walls and removed one entry door. This gave us an overall space of about 189″ x 189″. The computer drawings below demonstrate where we started to remake the new layout. Note the drop-in tub with matching wood side, and also the recessed display wall niches with LED lights. (FYI … click on photos to enlarge to full size)
There were originally two separate vanities. We installed a new 10’W double vanity with drawers. The cabinets are solid maple fronts in an ‘espresso’ color. The vanity top is ‘White River’ custom 3cm granite with rectangular undermount porcelain sinks and modern single handle faucets in brushed nickel. Note the gorgeous ‘wood-grained’ flooring which is actually porcelain tile made to look like distressed hardwoods.
The original shower was accessible from both sides with two individual doors (and opposing toilets … ). The new shower was designed to be walk-in with no door, but floor to ceiling glass. Note the stunning dark walnut ceiling with LED light, and also the river pebble base. We used a light gray 12×24 porcelain tile with glass accents on the walls, and a fabulous bodyshower system to complete this 21st century shower. Awesome !!
A view of the other existing vanity and old ceramic tile. The new bathroom has lots more open space and functionality.
Lastly, here are the original computer 3D drawings of this project. You can see we slightly changed the layout of the shower and WC which became obvious once we had done demolition and were able to evaluate the actual functionality of every square inch. However, this is a good rendering of ideas which came up in our initial meeting.
