the things that made the original master bath uncomfortable were that
they had to step into the tub to reach the volume controls, and there
was only one sink which made the morning time cramped. In addition, the
tile design did not compliment the design of the rest of the home.
Since the master bedroom is very large, the client agreed to take some
space to add to the bathroom. P pocket door was used in place of the
existing swinging door, and additional plumbing was installed to
accommodate a new double vanity with mirrors. The biggest obstacle was
overcome by creating this “Grand” shower enclosure to replace the
side-to-side tub and shower. Beyond the shower, a slipper tub on a
raised platform has become the focal point of the bathroom, replacing
the older tub that was once cramped into a corner. New tile was selected
for a more modern look. The rectified tiles make it look as if there are
no grout lines. The two functions in the large shower enclosure were
separated without a partition by simply adding chocolate wall tiles only
on the shower body walls for a visual separation.
