Before: Hello, Yellow!
There are so many things wrong with this bathtub area. The tub itself is proudly displayed in a golden-yellow hue, accompanied by outdated brass fixtures that clash. The tub surround features dingy white tile and tan sponge-painted walls for a mismatched and imbalanced feel that ruins the entire look of this master bathroom.
After: Serene Surroundings
The underused bathtub area was properly replaced with a stone and pebble shower complete with three showerheads, a relaxing rainhead and ledged stone walls for a rustic, spa-like feel.
Before: Uncomfortably Tight
With barely two feet between the bathtub and standup shower, a toilet makes the space feel even more cramped. And considering the bathtub is rarely used, it seems to take up more space than necessary. By removing the bathtub and properly utilizing the space, a larger shower can be installed.
After: Contemporary Decor
To bring the 21st century into this master bathroom, the team added a custom vanity with built-in nightlights to replace the outdated brass setup. The dirty and unattractive linoleum flooring was ripped up and replaced with ipe hardwood floors for an air of rich elegance. To provide as much functional storage space as possible, a tall, walnut storage cabinet was added to the space.
