Modern Makeover

The new owners of a home in McLean sought to upgrade their master bath, which was dated, dark and cramped. They turned to Case Design/Remodeling to transform the awkward space into a modern, spacious and airy retreat.

The bath was narrow with all of its components crammed together. An old built-in tub was wedged into a small space at one end of the room.The design team borrowed space from a wet bar and closet in the adjacent master bedroom to enlarge the bath. A roomy shower occupies the once-cramped space that housed the tub.
A dark wood vanity didn’t offer much in the way of storage or useful surface area.Twin Ronbow vanities provide storage while a Jacuzzi soaking tub creates a focal point.
Dark wood and dingy reddish-brown tiles made the whole room look dim, despite skylights.White vanities, marble tops, and pale, wood-look porcelain floors are light and airy. A stacked-quartzite veneer on the wall behind the tub adds interest.
