PROJECT OVERVIEW ISSUES
The original owners of this classic Buchan home wanted to upgrade their dated master bathroom. During our design meetings it became clear that they had two issues that needed to be solved. First they almost never used the corner tub and secondly they wanted additional closet/storage space.
By eliminating the tub and moving some of the existing plumbing locations we were able to gain access to the unused attic space over the kitchen and dining room. With this new space we were able to build a new floor in the attic for an additional walk in closet and extra storage along with a spacious shower.This glass enclosed master shower is complete with a new valve and head in addition to a luxurious rain head. The shower is stone type tile with several recessed niches highlighted with glass tiles insets and a rock flooring. The flooring in the bathroom is the same stone tile used in the shower over a heat mat installed with a 1/3 2/3 staggered pattern. To complete the renovation we added an entire wall of cabinets complete with a make-up desk and an upper cabinet for make-up and other storage, slab countertops with under mount vanity sinks and mirrors to the ceiling. We installed toekick lighting in the cabinets which is operated by a motion sensor on timer so that at night time you don’t have to fumble for a light switch.
The team work between the owners, designer, subs and suppliers have helped us to create a dramatic, sophisticated, elegant yet comfortable space for the owners to enjoy for many years to come.
