When water damage happens in a house, it can be devastating for the homeowners to try and pick up the pieces by themselves. The current space wasn’t being utilized due to a flood incident and it was now time for a fresh makeover! This unexpected renovation project turned this master bathroom into a new highly functional space.
The double sink vanity, freestanding soaker tub and custom built shower were three essential requirements listed by the client’s that needed to be addressed in the new layout. The shower area was relocated to the opposite side of the room and changed to a larger open concept stall with a fold down bench integrated into the full height niche creating a nice vertical element in this space. The mosaic tile used on the shower floor continued at the back of the shower niche which hosts a fold-down bench below the floating quartz shelves.
The wall where the shower used to be was now the perfect place to put a double sink vanity along with a matching linen cabinet for additional storage. To create an even more spacious room the regular entry door was replaced with a pocket door, the shower floor was made to the room floor and the cabinetry was designed with open shelves.
The contemporary freestanding tub was centered in front of the arched window with a pony wall built as a convenient shelf for the tub user. The top of the shelf was capped with the same quartz material that was used for the vanity, the backsplash and the shower niche shelves to tie all of these elements together.
The cabinet thin door profile with the square knobs and the frameless floating mirror were part of the key elements that gave this new bathroom a modern look. The large south facing window and the light monochromatic colour scheme made this new room a tremendously bright and inviting space.
