Case Study: Bathroom Renovation
Our clients are busy professionals that wished to transform their builder grade Master Bath into a luxury retreat, using the finest materials and evoking a clean traditional style with modern touches and elements of drama. Features include a heated marble floor, dramatic Nero Marquina marble tops, custom mahogany bathroom cabinetry, an infinity tub with a dramatic laminar wall mounted tub filler, luxury shower with rainshower and handheld, polished nickel plumbing and lighting fixtures with contemporary styling, an antique glass frameless shower enclosure, built in niche for a flat screen television, fine moldings and a custom built closet system in the adjacent walk in closet.
The custom mahogany cabinetry, a main feature of the space, provides a striking contrast against the Arabescato marble floor and the handsome Nero Marquina marble tops. The door style and finish of the cabinetry were designed to mimic a favorite fine antique from the homeowner’s collection. Evoking the antique’s finish was challenging, and took multiple samples. The front of the tub deck includes a removable wood panel for access to the tub’s motor—and matches the vanity cabinets. The client, designer and tile installer hand picked the marble tiles, polished for the walls, and honed for the floor, to provide the desired level of variation throughout the space.
The adjacent walk-in closet, designed in collaboration with a closet specialist, was specifically tailored to the wardrobes of the clients and includes solid wood cabinetry, jewelry inserts, tie and belt racks, open shelves and special height hanging rods.
