House to Home Solutions revives a master bath with functionality and style

The owners of a Potomac home were tired of their 1990s-era bath. Not only did it have inadequate storage and a tub that took up too much space, but the walled-in shower induced feelings of claustrophobia. Called in to renovate, designers Daniel Carrero and Andrea Pohl reconfigured the layout to make way for an efficient new design and developed an aesthetic that would measure up to the rest of their clients’ elegant home. They carved out room for a large, open shower with a floating bench, a freestanding tub, a separate WC and a 12-foot wall of customized cabinets offering a place for everything from toiletries to a pull-out trash receptacle. The linen cabinet even harbors hidden plugs. Custom-framed mirrors and sconces offer the perfect setup for make-up application. Quartzite countertops and Calacatta tile on the floor and shower walls add a graceful touch. The clients love their new, spa-like escape. Says Carrero, “Even the husband, who was a bit skeptical about the project, is in awe over it.”
