Design Win


At the top of the wish-list: a full-gut bath remodel to make room for a separate tub and shower. Despite the small floor plan, the team made it work! A high-end
Sonoma tile wraps around the bathroom, and a Marvin Essential awning window is added to allow for privacy and natural light. 

Engineering Win


The curb-less shower is sloped at just the right angle to allow water to drain while still ensuring a flat surface for the bath. Yes, there’s electric in-floor heat too! This family is ready to enjoy having the best of both worlds.

Before & After

Freestanding Standing Bath

This project uses a deck-mounted filler (see how there is a flat area on the tub for mounting plumbing fixtures). In the Vintage Meets Traditional project, we used a floor filler. As the name implies, this type of plumbing fixture is mounted to the floor. Deck-mounted fixtures are much more cost-effective than a floor filler



Natural Beauty and Custom Tile Colors

Walnut wood is well-known for its workability and beauty. It is also usually straight-grained, but sometimes you’ll find little waves or curls that enhance the character of the piece. Additionally, a handmade tile with custom color choices adds a pop of color to this bathroom.
