Remodeled Traditional Serene Master Bathroom
Before: Original 1990s white cabinets, tile countertops, mauve plumbing fixtures. The room is dated by the wallpaper and carpeting.
Before: The tub divides the lavatory and the dressing table with odd angles. Homeowners disliked the “cute” wallpaper and the carpeting.
Before: This was not an inexpensive shower originally, but the lack of a shampoo niche required the owners to use a cheap wire accessory for soap and shampoo.

The remodeled traditional serene master bathroom looked like the home had been inherited from an elderly aunt, not built for the professional couple only 20 years ago. They were tired of the wallpaper and the color scheme and wanted to update the bathroom while keeping the traditional appearance and feeling. New plumbing and lighting fixtures were selected, and new cabinets were manufactured to blend with the existing cabinets. Porcelain tile with crackle-glass inserts was chosen. The Homeowners are happy with everything, and their serene traditional bathroom will be a source of pride and joy for years. There’s a link to the kitchen project below.
Although the house is only 20 years old, the homeowners wanted to update the master bathroom. Existing lavatory cabinets were refinished and reused, enhanced by a new wall cabinet, light valances, and custom mirror frames. The vanity was redesigned for better storage, enhanced by a custom mirror frame and custom medicine cabinet with lighted makeup mirror. The original carpet was replaced by porcelain tile flooring with radiant heating. What makes this bathroom special is the custom tile installation that includes glass tiles inset at regular intervals in the backsplash that flows from the lavatory countertop down to the tub deck and up to the vanity. The same glass tiles were used to frame the custom shampoo niche. A “waterfall” edge was incorporated into the engineered countertops and tub decks
