With this condo only being five years old, it wasn’t necessarily outdated as much as it just didn’t fit the lifestyle of the owner. The master bathroom was poorly laid out with a large tub which the client did not use, a tiny shower tucked behind the door and a lack of storage.
We suggested turning the existing shower area into a linen closet and adjusting the original plumbing for the tub to accommodate a large shower.
We capped and eliminated the plumbing in the original tiny shower and converted it into a closet. We then framed new walls for the larger shower, installed valve and fixtures for a hand-shower.
In the shower, we installed a stone look 13” glazed porcelain tile on the walls with oyster color grout and a mosaic glass accent. The same tile in 4” was used on the shower floor and in 20” on the bathroom floors.
Plywood vanity cabinets with a bank of soft close drawers were installed, which provided more practical storage the owner was looking for. These were topped with Cold Spring 3CM granite. The client chose a Kohler under-mount porcelain sink and brushed nickel faucets and hardware to complete the look.
