Before: The bathroom needed to be remodeled and updated; the skylights had to remain (homeowner association rules). The toilet was moved to a private room, making room for the new whirlpool tub and large one-person shower.

Tropical island master suite - bathroom: The whirlpool tub and shower are now in a separate "wet room" with a custom glass door. Limestone tiles were used for the walls, tub deck and skirt, flooring, and splash. The splash resembles sand dunes, with individually-polished edges.

Tropical island master suite: Updated contemporary-European style master bedroom with whimsical touches.

Tropical island master suite has an updated contemporary-European style master bedroom with whimsical kites that would be at home on Hawaiian shores.

The tropical island master suite was successfully transformed from 1970s “earth tones” into a cheerful and relaxing space . The updated theme was inspired by beach sand, the sky and the sea. Limestone tiles were shaped and polished to look like sand dunes in Hawaii. A new private toilet room was created; the whirlpool tub and shower became a “wet room,” with a custom glass door. There’s a custom lavatory “island” with pullout pantries and limestone bowls suspended from the countertop. Imagine taking a shower, or bathing, with a smiling dolphin as your guardian!
