Master Suite Remodel
Outside In The simple master bath in this 1980s home offered good space and beautiful surroundings but little aesthetic appeal. The goal: improve the usability and durability as well as looks through natural materials and thoughtful construction. The metal vessel sink and etched glass counter appear to hover below an extra-large mirror as cabinets float in balance beneath. Mesh metal accents set in the warm maple wood echo the sleek sink. We put a corner space to good use with a generous tub enveloped in glacier-blue glass tile. No worries while soaking here - we ensured durability and a watertight seal by mounting the 12-inch-square tiles on a solid foundation of custom-fabricated stone slabs. A glistening glass basin ads glow and flow to the dressing room area, while heated slate floors are as comfortable as they are beautiful. A wooded lot and no neighbors meant these homeowners could enjoy a view from any room - including the spacious two-person shower. What's also big is what you don't see: The stone returns of the oversize window's custom waterproof frame prevents moisture damage, and the transparent interior shower wall has no frame to block the beauty. An expansive skylight continues the natural feels, bathing the area in ambient light.
