It is not uncommon for clients to ask us to to remove the tub to make room for an enlarged shower in their primary bathroom. In a recent primary bathroom remodel in Durham, NC, the homeowners’ request to enlarge the shower went above and beyode the usual. Read on to learn how we outfitted their shower with the latest and greatest technology.
By relocating the shower to the original location of the oversized tub, we were able to capitalize on the large space provided by removing the tub while maintaining the natural light provided by the existing privacy block window. Furthermore, the original shower location created a perfect place for a linen closet offering the homeowners much-needed additional storage. The shower doors, composed of satin-etched privacy glass with a blue tint, lend an upgraded design element while allowing all the light from the vanity to add to the natural light from the window.
Upgraded Shower Experience
We installed river rock on the shower floor to provide an organic, non-slip surface. We carried the same river rock to the back of the custom niches to offer continuity in the design and tiled the shower walls all the way to the ceiling with 10″X20″ rectangular porcelain tile. The real showstoppers in this shower are the two rain showerheads and two handhelds (four showerheads total).
Though the shower really steals the spotlight, other unique features from this primary bathroom in Durham include:
- Additional Lighting coming from LED lighted mirrors, pendants, and built-in adjustable lit mirror
- Luxury vinyl tile flooring in variegated greys laid in a rectangular, brick pattern
- Semi-custom white shaker-style cabinets with a tower for additional storage
- Brushed nickel knobs and finishings throughout
