One of the main motivators for this Itasca-based client was her desire to remove her bathtub. Originally, it was surrounded by a tub deck, making it very challenging to get in and out of. The removal of the bathtub not only allowed for a linen closet, but also created more space for a luxurious walk-in shower. The new shower, complete with a bench and two shower faucets, is now a much safer and more comfortable shower experience. One of the shower faucets was attached to the wall opposite of the bench, while the other was a handheld shower system, installed directly beside the bench.
The shower was the focal point of the bathroom, and employed an elegant, marble accent tile, as well as detailed handles and fixtures that elevate the glamour of the space.
Before: The oak trim and vanity gave the room a dated look. The vanity offered minimal storage. The lighting was dim and caused the entire room to feel dark and heavy. The shower was cramped and enclosed by a shower curtain, which often caused the dated floor tile to get slippery. There was little character and no statement piece.
After: The new vanity offers plenty of countertop space for the homeowner's daily routine, as well as a storage tower to further help keep things organized. The quartz countertops help create an atmosphere of elegance along with the sophisticated wall sconces, mirrors, and fixtures. The shower is now bright and open, enclosed by frameless glass, which helps the entire room feel more spacious. The addition of recessed lighting along with a statement chandelier dramatically improved the overall lighting throughout the space.
