Master Bathroom

Location: Louisville (Lyndon), KY

Project Overview:

This master bathroom needed a makeover, especially with the very old and cavernous shower! However, the clients wished to keep the vanity and the mosaic tile behind it, as that had been updated not long ago. The challenge was to update the shower, flooring, water closet, while keeping the vanity and not looking like these were two different updates/timeframes!  The designer took her cue from the existing tile backsplash but did not want to necessarily repeat the common horizontal bar look of the tile in the shower. A “light look” was requested so a light neutral beige tile was used on the floor and on the shower walls. The outside wall was opened up for a glass enclosure/door making the shower fully visible. The slate/dark colors of the existing vanity backsplash tile were mimicked in the shower by using the same color stones as a vertical accent on the back wall. A granite close match from the old vanity was found for the added shower bench seat, threshold, and niche shelves. His and her niches were added to accommodate their product needs. One of the biggest changes was removing the rarely used and short sized tub. In its place, a thoughtful seating area with a bench was placed. A colorful fabric roman shade, again in the colors of the tile, dresses the window. Art to compliment the palette is in the water closet. A light grey/beige is the wall color.
