This was a favorite project from last year. We were tasked with changing some but not all of the elements in this bathroom with the goal of updating it and raising the tub. The client’s shower was to stay but they wanted just about everything else new. They wanted to replace their ceramic tile but complement the existing travertine in the shower.
We created a raised tub with a tiled surround which features a decorative inset that continues the feeling of flowing water from the client’s glass artwork. We also added lighted mirrors and custom vanities, each tailored to its user. Her side has a large sink and a generous drawer for makeup, plus space for towel storage, the vanity on his side is a little taller and has minimal drawer storage. We selected a travertine look-alike quartz for the countertops and the tub deck to unify the space. The client also had lighting controls updated so one touch of a button sets the scene from full light to a relaxed ambiance. All in all, we transformed a 1980’s bathroom to one that will carry them through many years looking beautiful and functioning with ease.
