Many of the Master Bathroom projects we do today involve removing the tub to allow room to create a beautiful, large, open custom shower. The average area home typically has a smallish, existing shower, and, trying to keep things in their current location never allows for the large, shower oasis everyone desires. This Aurora area home took the road less traveled and incorporated not only a gorgeous new spa-type shower, but also a large soaking tub.

The new configuration did require some major modifications to the plumbing and we needed to borrow a 2’x4’ section from the adjacent closet. All the extra work was well worth it. The homeowner wanted to create her “dream” bathroom after envisioning it in her head for many years. We used a very exclusive glass tile for the shower floor and borders. We used multiple sizes of the Stone & Pewter Accents Tozen glass tile throughout the room. A 1”x1” was used for the shower floor and the staggered 1”x4” was used on the walls; both in the Oxygen color. You will not see this tile in many bathrooms due to its exclusivity. It was chosen because it coordinated beautifully with the Suburb Pinecrest 12×24 floor and wall tile.

As with all our Bathrooms, Bertch cabinetry and Kohler plumbing fixtures were used throughout. The homeowner also chose to go with the matching mirrors and toilet topper cabinet from Bertch. Kohler accessories (towel bars, lighting, glass shelves, etc.) adorn each wall of the bathroom for consistency. The Kohler Mariposa soaking tub is set on a granite top instead of the typical tile deck we install. While this is certainly not an inexpensive option, the dramatic finished look is worth every penny. All the granite installed is a beautiful Butterfly Green with a bullnose edge. This is a perfect case study for taking an average sized bathroom and creating a bathroom that feels much bigger than it truly is.
