Last February, I had the first meeting with my client for a master bath remodel. It was your basic late 90’s/early 2000’s bathroom. Jacuzzi tub, cubed window, whitewashed cabinets… My client had a great budget and was on board with a full gut of the bathroom. Just what you want to hear as a designer 🙂
After walking through the bathroom and talking with my client about their wish list, the designing began.
Client wishlist: free standing tub, steam shower, his & hers vanities and plenty of storage.
My design wishlist: marble, brass, modern/boho vibe, luxurious, relaxing/spa like
When designing a bathroom, I like to start with the tile first. I found this 8 inch marble hex that I LOVED and knew it was going to be the showpiece of the space. I wanted the hex to cover every wall and I chose a 12×24 ceramic gray tile laid in a herringbone for the floor.
After nailing down all of the tile, next up was the plumbing fixtures and finishes. I went with brass and modern fixtures. After tile & plumbing fixtures, next up was the layout. Since this was a complete gut, I was basically working with a shell so I could pretty much do whatever I wanted with the layout.
Here are a couple of inspiration photos:
Now for some photos of the bathroom…
To the right of the window was the old steam shower:
To the left of the window was her vanity:
The window got quite the facelift. We removed the plantation shutters and added/painted the trim work black to resemble the look of a steel window.
Here’s the after:
Her vanity area before:
The cubed window was above the jacuzzi tub which all got ripped out and is now where the new steam shower is.
We closed off the cubed window for the shower and added a small window beside it for more natural light!
His vanity used to be here, with the steam shower to the left of that closet door:
This is how it looks now:
We did a built in for plenty of storage where his vanity used to be and moved his vanity where the steam shower used to be!
Now for some detail shots of the shower:
This shower has everything…steam control , aromatherapy, rain head, hand held spray.
Marble and brass…all the heart eyes!!
Now for some detail shots of the tub:
I will leave you with one more before and after!
