Bubbles in the Master Bath

After moving to an established neighborhood in Naperville, Ed & Nicole initially tweaked their first floor living space to accommodate their taste and lifestyle for their active young family. At long last,  they were ready to attack the upstairs bedrooms and at last remodel their master bath. Priorities for Ed & Nicole’s master bath were to  reconfigure their shower/toilet room area, rework the whirlpool tub area and redesign the vanity storage and sink layout. Like so many Naperville master baths of the 90’s the space planning needing updating and the appointments were tired.

By combining the shower and toilet room areas to one space, it was possible to enlarge the shower, create visual access to the shower and add a private shower/toilet room.  The existing window was replaced with a glass block panel window, giving privacy while adding light to the space. Creating two individual dressing areas within the vanity space gave Ed & Nicole their much needed elbow room with plenty of storage. Removing the whirlpool tub & stairs eliminated a potentially dangerous situation for use of the whirlpool. Installing a soaking tub with easy access enhanced the tub’s safety and practical use.

Classic material selections created a warm environment with a sense of timelessness and a touch of whimsy. Cabinet doors are a soft edge transitional style with a white glazed finish. Cambria counter-tops in earth tones provide contrast and visual weight to the light cabinets. The porcelain tiles in a taupe marble like pattern connect the understated finishes. Using large rectangular tiles on the floor and shower walls enhance the proportion of the elements in the master bath space. The “bubble” glass tile mosaic adds texture, color & a touch of whimsy to this inviting master bath remodel. Understated satin nickel finishes on the lights, fans & plumbing completes the classic color scheme.
