the challenge

In the master bathroom, our client had a large tub and surround that took up so much space in the bathroom and was rarely used. Even though there were two vanities, they were cramped and there was a lot of unnecessary waste. The half-wall and soffit made the space feel very divided.

The previous shower was small, making it feel cramped and dark. It was also visible from the master bedroom as there is an open doorway from the bedroom into the bathroom. Our client likes having the open concept from the master bedroom to the bathroom but wanted to make the view more appealing.

our solution

By removing the jacuzzi tub, soffit, and half walls, this bathroom got a new layout that is much more functional for our client and her lifestyle. Instead of a small shower and built-in tub, the new space has a large walk-in shower and freestanding tub. The space between the shower wall and toilet room has a double vanity with quartz countertops, under-mount sinks, and Kohler sink faucets, which provides storage and space for a makeup vanity.

A freestanding tub with a freestanding tub filler makes the tub truly a show stopper in this bathroom. We love it when our clients want to incorporate their style into their spaces and these baskets are such fun! Our client loves to travel the world and wanted to incorporate pieces that remind her of those travels, so she found these basket weavings from Africa on Etsy and they’re the perfect complement to the design. Towel hooks provide a spot for hanging towels for either the tub or shower.

The shower was placed where the jacuzzi tub was once. And in the shower, a porcelain marble look tile not only has a lower price point than actual marble and it gives that luxurious look, without needing to worry about maintenance. The shower floor is a marble hexagon tile that has greys and tans to compliment the shower walls and tile floor. We love incorporating benches into showers and this teak bench fits the space perfectly. You can find more teak options for your bathroom here!
