A fabulous family invited us to demolish and rebuild their dreary master bathroom last year, and we jumped in to rescue it. The narrow dimensions created a bowling alley effect which we needed to solve, but at least we were on the same page when it came to the design and finishes. Now all we had to do is get there.
The starting point was underwhelming. We'll set the stage with the original bathroom as we found it.
Our clients presented us with the challenge of fitting a free-standing tub in the bathroom, part of which extended over the stairwell. Expanding the length of the bathroom into the spacious bedroom was not a problem. However, gaining the extra width for the tub would require some clever engineering.
The first order of business was stripping the existing bathroom down to the studs.
After the wreckage, it was time to rebuild. Fortunately, we now had enough space to fit two sinks, a true walk-in shower, and enclose the toilet for some privacy.
The new shower was now compatible with the rest of the bathroom. Sorry, Ms. Kitty. Time to find a new spot in the house.
We included electrical inside the Furniture Guild vanities and Robern medicine cabinets.
It's gratifying to work with clients who seized the opportunity in this master bathroom; credit goes to them for pursuing an idea and seeing it through without compromise. For our part, we could not be happier than helping an amazing family enjoy their new master bathroom.
