The fact that their master bathroom had no shower and zero storage space inspired Lisa and Dan Brooks to do some major updating. The house is almost 100 years old, so we knew it would need some remodeling when we bought it about four years ago, Lisa says.
The old bathroom had a pedestal sink, a toilet, a claw foot tuband nothing else. We had to walk all the way to the other side of the house to use a shower, Lisa says. Since the bathroom was sandwiched in between two bedrooms, there wasnt really any room for expansion. Luckily, the problem was not so much lack of space as it was lack of function.
The luxurious new two-person shower has glass doors, a curved bench and arched niches for storage. We absolutely love the shower, Lisa says. Across the room, a wide makeup desk provides previously lacking countertop and storage space, and the curved limestone top matches the bench in the shower, tying the room together visually. The vanity cabinet is a separate freestanding furniture piece. Its great to have the vanity and the desk, because we can both be getting ready at the same time, Lisa says.
Tumbled marble tile creates an interesting pattern across the floor and into the shower, and the colors, which Lisa loves, look great with the chocolate brown furniture and blue-green walls. Matching double and single sconces give the room a peaceful glow. To brighten things up even more, the mirror above the makeup desk is positioned to reflect perfectly the arched glass block window in the shower.
The result is a highly functional and beautiful bathroom that will add value to the home and make life easier for the Brookses. The bathroom is absolutely perfect now; we love it, Lisa says.
