Master Bathroom - PerryTraditional Bathroom, Dallas
This client wanted to do a bathroom remodel to give their master bathroom a more updated look and to make it more suited to their lifestyle. They rarely used their tub and said they would prefer to have a much larger shower instead. The lady of the house also wanted to have a comfortable area for putting on make-up. There were two closets, but neither of them was large enough to be functional.
Removing the wall between the tub and the vanity allowed us to open up the space and make room for a larger shower. This also helped to optimize the natural light coming in from the window. By relocating the other walls we were able to turn the two small closets into one large custom walk-in closet.
We decided to float the cabinets to make the room feel larger. These also give the room an upscale, contemporary look. This is further accented by the large shelf in the shower. We added even more character to the room with the “Brown Rain Forest” marble countertop on the vanity and the mosaic used in the shower. We also installed wall faucets and vessel sinks.
We installed a round, pivoting mirror to allow make the application of make-up more comfortable whether sitting or standing. Electrical plugs were installed inside the cabinet drawers and on the countertop for easy access. Finally, a small space for a television was created so the clients could stay informed while getting ready in the morning, or to help them relax at the end of the day. The end result was the dramatic change this client had been looking for.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Hidden outlets. The scourge of bathrooms is the clambering masses of electronic devices that demand an outlet and adjacent counter space: hair dryers, electric toothbrushes, electric razors and curling irons. Don’t you wish they would all vamoose to where you can’t see them? That could be a real possibility if you install outlets inside medicine cabinets and drawers. Out of sight, out of mind until you need them.4. Humidistat fan. It used to be that exhaust fans in baths had two options for controls — the on-off switch and the timer. Now the options have multiplied, with motion detector and humidistat fans. My favorite is the humidistat — you set it to a humidity level you deem reasonable, and it will run if the humidity goes over that level, and keep running until the humidity decreases to below your set level. It doesn’t address all of the reasons you might run a fan in a bath, but it does handle the one that can make a mess of paint and other finishes: moisture.
