In the 80s and 90s, it was standard for builders to include a large garden tub in their master bathroom designs. What homeowners found is that, though they enjoy an occasional soak, the tub shouldn’t occupy up to a third of their usable space! In our latest master bathroom remodel in Chapel Hill, NC, we transformed an outdated, cluttered, space into an open, spacious, elegant retreat with all the function, and none of the clutter. Read on to learn more.
In the original design, a shelf connected the oversized garden tub to the shower. We removed the garden tub completely and expanded the shower into that space. The shower now boasts a modern, frameless glass enclosure with tile throughout including a large 4″ X12″ subway tile on the walls and a hexagon mosaic tile on the shower floor. The sleek freestanding tub with a floor-mounted tub filler completes the updated master bathroom design.
