Master Bathroom remodels can be such a wonderful investment in your home. While a kitchen remodel is something you AND your guests can enjoy together, a master bath is more of a treat to yourself to enjoy every single day. Bath remodels can be a fantastic way to update a home just by simply replacing fixtures and finishes. Take a look at this dream of a bath retreat we just completed in Bettendorf, Iowa.
Do you have a large Jacuzzi-style tub sitting in your Master Bath that you never use? Well you are NOT the only home in the Quad Cities in that category. This home did too. Over the past few years we have removed so many of these large tubs to make space for a better design and practical tub design for our customers. The original tub in this Bettendorf home was so large it barely ever was used because it could fill and keep water hot long enough to enjoy it. Plus like many we take out, it had a lovely carpeted step up to access it. Look at the before photo of this large tub.
And now we have taken that large out and created a spacious and stylish new tub area. The Kohler Stargaze freestanding tub is stylish and far more practical size for fill and use. Keeping the space open around the tub and installing floating shelves above it, allows the area to feel open but not uncomfortably large. The Stargaze tub has a centered drain and the Dryden series of fixtures from Delta are installed for the tub and shower.
The original bathroom already had a large tiled shower area in the corner. A polished brass shower surround was installed right up to the Jacuzzi tub surround in the old design. While there was plenty of space in the original shower, there wasn’t a great area for toiletry storage. Take a look at the original shower area in this image below.
And now we have created a new tiled shower space with an updated look and added shelf storage. By building a short kneewall to separate the tub area from the shower, we created a wall surface on the tub side for panels. On the interior shower side of that wall we built in a tiled shelf niche for storage. Shower toiletries are right in reach of the user but out of sight for anyone else.
A custom glass shower surround is installed in the new design with a ledge of Cambria Quartz on top of the kneewall. The quartz is the Berwyn Design. A classic neutral choice that compliments all of the other surface selections in the new bathroom space so well. We also love the installation of a robe hook within the tiled shower. This shower area is large enough to keep your towel or robe within the shower and not get wet from the shower controls.
Having your robe or towel within reach of the shower is a great luxury and so is warm tile on your bare feet once you exit the shower. As our adorable model shows us below, this stylish new flooring is comfortable as well with a heated tile system beneath it.
The tile in this bathroom is from the Simply Modern series in the “Coffee” color. 12″ x 24″ tiles are the main bathroom floor and 2″ x 2″ tiles create the shower floor and entry. The shower walls are a tile from the Paramount New York series in the “Greenwich Village” color.
Our expert bathroom remodel team will work closely with you and our tile department to select accessories, decide layout, and discuss location for all the details of your new tiled shower. The existing bathroom vanity in this home was painted a fresh bright white and a new counter, faucets, and vanity bowls were installed. Cambria Quartz in the Berwyn design adds sprakle and shine to this vanity area.
Our carpentry crews are skilled to not only install cabinetry and hardware, but also trim, moldings, millwork and other wood details for your space. The crew at this home created a customized wainscot panel design surrounding the lower half of the entire room. The completed and painted paneling really takes the space to a designer level and adds such a great look.
This Master Bath was already so spacious and now it is extremely stylish. To see the full album of images from this bath remodel click here to visit our Houzz portfolio.
