Master Bathroom Suite Remodeling

The existing bathroom from the 60's was looking a little dated. The 4-person hottub was taking up too much space and needed to go — so too, the vanity, the corner closet, and the out-dated shower.

Scope

  • More contemporary styling, more drama
  • Open up the space; make look larger
  • Improve traffic flow around shared spaces
  • Dedicated space for make-up
  • Deep soaking tub
  • In-floor heating
  • Larger, more luxurious shower

Before. Dated, crowded, bad lighting, poor ventilation, poor traffic patterns. Standard grade sinks, faucets, shower, shower surround, and dated ceramic tile. Generic golden oak trimwork.
