Master Bathroom Remodel | Eden Prairie, MN

the challenge

With this master bathroom, the layout was not working for our clients. The tub was behind the door, while the shower was small and hard to get into when it was right by the toilet, and the sinks were in separate places. Before the remodel, the space felt small, so the challenge was to make the bathroom feel more open without completely rearranging the space. One of the ways to achieve that was to move the closet wall further back so that there was more walkway space in the bathroom. The tub and vanity also swapped places and the shower walls were taken down as well to incorporate half glass walls that immediately made the bathroom feel bigger.

our solution

For this bathroom, adding a custom built-in closet where the previous make-up vanity area used to be makes much better use of the space with storage going all the way to the ceiling. In addition, adding custom storage in the closet allows for more organization and even though the closet became smaller because of the wall being moved, it feels larger with the better layout. Removing the built-in tub and adding a freestanding tub under the windows, complete with a Kohler Purist gold tub filler, makes the tub a big statement in the room. The new vanity is where the previous tub was, which allowed for both sinks to be in the same place. A navy vanity, paired with a neutral quartz countertop, gold hardware, and gold faucets makes for a beautiful combination. Marble-looking porcelain tile for the floor, complete with in-floor heat, makes the tile warmer and is also much easier to maintain than actual marble. A glass shower door with half glass walls really opens up the shower space and allowed it to become larger than before. Black accents in the pivot mirrors over the vanity, pulls on the built-in closet, and shower door and edging complete the space.
