Guest and Master Bathrooms
This project contains two bathrooms — an ensuite bathroom for quick and efficient use, and a master bathroom for unwinding.
The first, before the renovation, was a traditional family washroom. The shower and toilet were separated from the vanity by a wall, so multiple people could use the washroom at once. The bathtub it contained was seldom in use. We decided to give the washroom a more open feel, for use by one person at one time. The privacy wall was removed, save for one section against the shower, which aligns nicely with the Caesarstone quartz backsplash above the sink. Finally, the tub was removed in favour of a more practical shower — perfect for quick use in the mornings and before work.
The approach to the master bathroom was much different. What was once an awkwardly designed space with a water closet, a disproportionately large built-in bathtub and walk-in closet, was redesigned to be a place for the client’s to relax. The built-in tub was removed in favour for a much more compact, while still luxurious freestanding tub. The shower (which has steaming capabilities) was moved to the opposite end of the bathroom, where the original walk-in closet stood. The water closet was removed and the toilet was relocated to create space for the additional vanity and the new walk-in closet. Both the tub and toilet side walls contain a half-wall height backsplash and ledge.
