Wall niches embellished with 3D porcelain-tile panels and integrated LED lighting create a focal point.

The freestanding tub is by BainUltra.

Before: The bath was dated and dysfunctional, with drab ceramic tile on the walls and floor.

Before: The bath had no special features and lacked visual appeal.

The finished space encompasses a roomy shower enclosure, soaking tub and wraparound vanity offering copious storage.

Before+After: Kitchen+Bath

Case Architects & Remodelers conjures a spa-like master bath in a 1970s Arlington home

“The existing design lacked function and aesthetics and created a lot of dead space,” says Case project developer Gizem Ozkaya. By demolishing the original spaces, upgrading fixtures and introducing a fresh, streamlined sensibility, the design team was able to deliver on the clients’ vision of a modern master bath that would feel like an airy, streamlined retreat.

Then Now
The original bath was hampered by a layout that divided it into separate spaces: A hallway leading to the bedroom was bordered by closets flanking a vanity; another area housed a bidet, additional sink, shower and tub. Case gutted the two spaces to create one expansive bathroom encompassing a roomy shower enclosure, soaking tub, toilet, bidet and wraparound vanity offering copious storage.
The bath was dated and dysfunctional, with drab ceramic tile on the walls and floor. Large-format, marble-look porcelain tile on floors and walls sets a modern tone. A double-basin vanity in a wood-look, horizontal-grain laminate adds warmth.
The mundane bathroom had no special features and lacked visual appeal. A freestanding BainUltra tub is enhanced by wall niches that create a focal point; they are embellished with 3D porcelain-tile panels and integrated LED lighting.
