Project Description

The owners of this master bathroom in Yorktown wanted a re-imagined floor plan that made the most of the space that was available. Their original floor plan included both a large jetted tub and a standing shower, but no linen closet for storage. The tub and shower were taking up space that could otherwise be devoted to storage and more open area. Instead of having two separate units, the homeowners decided instead to have one large shower, omit the bathtub, and add a linen closet.

To begin, the jetted tub was removed and a large, two-person tiled shower room was built where the tub had previously been located. Three different shades of tile, from the same collection, were used in this shower for the wall, floor, and bench seat. This was done both for contrast and consistency. A bench seat was added along the back wall of the shower, and separate rain style shower heads were installed on either side of the shower. The shower heads are controlled independently of one another.

​Where a small shower had previously been a linen closet with multiple shelves was constructed for much needed storage space. The wide, deep shelves created tons of space for linens and necessities.

​New cabinets with additional storage were also installed to replace a dated double vanity. These new vanity cabinets are his and hers reversed sink base cabinets. They featured two fully functional pull-out drawers below the cabinets, as well as a grooming organizer pull-out in the middle. Bright bulb style lighting was removed and recessed lighting was added to the ceiling. The large single mirror that hung over the original vanity was replaced with two matching mirrored medicine cabinets. The medicine cabinets added symmetry to the vanity area and gave the homeowners their own personal storage space.

​As an added bonus to the homeowners, the bathroom was made to be Aging-in-Place ready. Special features include grab bars, single lever faucets, and bright LED lighting. These features will allow this bathroom remodel to remain up to date for the homeowners into the future.
