A Tale of Two Bathrooms
When we first met with the Riggsbys, they were ready to refresh their master and hall bathrooms. The rooms, which shared a common wall, were laid out in such a way that the hall bathroom was the bigger of the two and contained a massive jetted tub that they rarely used. Mrs. Riggsby expressed a desire to steal some space from the hall bath to increase the size of the master, so she could have her dream bathroom. We love a challenge, and went to work reconfiguring the space and presented them with a rendering showing how the new bathrooms could lay out.
Because the large tub in "His" bathroom wasn't being used and was just eating up valuable real estate, we relocated the shower to the tub's original location. This freed up several feet of space where his old shower had been located. We used this space to give the Master a large walk-in shower and used the space in the master that had originally been for the shower for a new freestanding tub. We added tall linen cabinets in both bathrooms to maximize storage.
The Riggsbys expressed that it was much more important to have more space in the Master than in the Hall bath, so we moved the back wall a couple of feet in and shifted the shower to the tub's original location.
The Riggsbys really love a traditional and timeless look, so we chose a gorgeous earth-toned marble tile combination for the floor and shower. We added a creamy quartz for the vanity top and shower pocket and chose a rainhead/handheld shower combo for versatility in function.
The Master bath had a longer and narrower footprint than the Hall bath originally. By stealing some space from the Hall bath, we were able to give the Riggsbys the large walk-in shower, freestanding tub, and beautiful aesthetic they were looking for.
In the Master, we did a slight variation on the marble tile combination that we chose in "His" bathroom. Since we wanted the space to have a more feminine feel, we chose a beautiful flower pattern that brought a softer feel to the shower floor and pockets. We added some additional dimension to the room through board and batten which we painted just a couple of shades darker than the walls. We added an elongated pocket on the wall behind the tub to keep bath salts and essentials within reach.
