When this client came to us, their current master bathroom in Saratoga was less than a decade old, but they felt it no longer met their needs. The existing bathroom, though the space was quite spacious, felt dark and cramped – thanks to poor planning of the enclosed shower/steam room and the lack of natural light. Both were a driving force to remodel the space.
The client first met with our designer Justina to discuss rearranging the components of the room. There were some elements of the old bathroom the clients wanted to bring along to the remodel. They knew they still required a double bowl vanity, but instead of a steam shower, which was never used, they wanted a simple showering area and a relaxing soaking tub they could gaze out of the new proposed transom window.
Planning for the future use of the space, designer Justina suggested a European style curbless “wet room” at the exterior wall end of the space that would house the showering/bathing location and the new window. To continue with the European vibe a floating vanity and clean-lined fixtures were selected in classic white and chrome finishes. The walls in the wet room are a solid surface product for ease of maintaining, with a pop of grey marble chevron pattern tile accent which ties in the grey floor tiling and draws your eye upward to the operable transom window.
