Master Modern Remodel

A dull, drab circa 1980’s monolithic cultured marble tub dominated this master bathroom. Incorporating a new exterior door within the existing space (while keeping the main components) added to the challenge of updating this 2-decade-old space. With a minimal amount of plumbing work in the concrete slab, the designers were able to remove the large, unused tub and add a curved tub that fit the homeowners’ needs and add a dramatic, but elegant, flair.

Relocating the water closet was considered. However, the designers felt it wasn’t warranted as an added value to the overall design. The final outcome is proof that sometimes more demo isn’t necessary.

Honed Italian marble on two walls, in addition to the custom shower, reflected the homeowner’s heritage and added a rustic element to the contemporary room. Large, linear porcelain floor tiles balance the visual character of the marble walls.

Dark walnut cabinetry transformed the old, short, white vanity from “blah” to “BAM”! A furniture-style linen cabinet keeps you on your toes with a resin insert panel instead of glass. Another intriguing element! Pull-out cabinet storage and drawers keep items within easy reach. Long, skinny mirrors flanked by Italian glass sconces continue the familial ties to the homeland.

Finally, 12” thick knee walls provide shampoo storage within the shower and give dramatic prominence to this corner of the room. Frameless glass allows the eye to take in all the beautiful details, from the lively-veined marble and shimmering accent tiles to the gracious curve of the tub and filler to the soft palette of everything combined. A modern, elegant, yet restful atmosphere indeed!
