Transforming a modular shower into a fabulous custom shower with skylight

This former modular shower was expanded by carving additonal space out of a storage space above the stairs and lifting the ceiling to allow the skylight. Antique Delft tiles collected over time by the client were integrated into the tile field and Danby marble serves as both the shelf and threshold.

The second floor of the cape is really all the master suite and this shower is the master shower, part of the master bathroom.

Where is the shower head in this shower stall? - We have a slanted attic shower and the current shower head placement is too low. We are trying to determine where to place a shower head on a slanted roof.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

More collections were put into action in this shower: this time, the client's collection of antique Delft tiles came in handy. The shelf and threshold are Vermont Danby marble. "We raised the shower ceiling to follow the roofline so that we could add the skylight," Smith says. She also borrowed a bit of space that had formerly been a storage space over the stairs to expand the shower stall.
