Master Bath with Generous Shower and Spa-Like Soaking Tub

Description

Our clients live in Chevy Chase DC in a house built in the 1990s.  They wanted to update their master bathroom and replace the built-in bulky jetted tub with a freestanding soaking tub, double the size of the shower, and add storage.  We demolished it down to the stud walls and created a luxury retreat.

Big enough for me and my master!

Free standing oval tub, built in cabinetry for storage, and Carrara marble topped double sink vanity.

After removing all fixtures and finishes including the tub and tub deck, we took demolished the bathroom to the studs. Before tackling the fittings and fixtures, we started by insulating the two exterior walls with spray foam insulation to create a tight envelope for a warm space. For even more comfort, we installed radiant under the marble floor. We also used marble as wainscoting along the walls, which is topped with a band of 1-inch glass mosaic tiles. The vanity top, the shower niche shelf, the shower bench and a linen shelf are all made from thick, white Carrara marble. The 65-inch resin tub by Signature Hardware provides for a luxury soak.

As the clients requested, we doubled the size of the shower enclosure. It is enclosed with frameless glass panels and includes a 3-setting rainhead, a handshower on a bar, and four body sprays. It’s fitted with a marble bench and a niche for soap and toiletries that is tiled with the same 1-inch glass mosaic as the trim band. Glass subway tile in Iceland Blue covers the upper shower walls.

The bathroom is flooded with natural light from the original four windows and two skylights. Recessed ceiling lights and sconces on both sides of each mirror provide task lighting. The sconces are Troy Lighting’s Collins collection.

The toilet is in a separate water closet.
