Inspiration for a timeless subway tile bathroom remodel in Boston with a console sink

Greek Revival Bath with Transom Windows

This bathroom was introduced into an 1853 Greek Revival row house. The home owners desired modern amenities like radiant floor heating, a steam shower, and a towel warmer. But they also wanted the space to match the period charm of their older home. A large glass-encased shower stall is the central player in the new bathroom. Lined with 3" x 6" white subway tile and fully enclosed by glass, the shower is bright and welcoming. And then the transom window at the top is closed, steam jets lining the shower create a relaxing spa. Although placed on an interior wall, the new bath is filled with abundant natural light, thanks to transom windows which welcome sunshine from the hallway. Photos by Shelly Harrison.

    We carry transom windows as shown above. This is exactly like our Traditional model TR-1. You would be surprised how many people use a transom like this to add light to a bathroom. FYI, the glass does not have to be tempered because it is so high. Call or chat with us and we will help you do the measurements. You can see this model here: http://goo.gl/krtWmb.

    Hi Rhea,

    Sorry for the long delay - we just saw your question!
    Although it's hard to tell in this picture, we used bright white grout in the shower. With proper ventilation, beadboard should do well.

    Hi tustytac,

    The dimensions for the sink are 26" x 18 1/2" x 30 1/2". We purchased through Waterworks, not sure if it's available in polished nickel.

    Thanks for asking,
