With visions of sand, waves and relaxation, the couple who reside in this CT home transformed their 1960s bathroom into a tropical getaway. The original area was small, crowded and had little storage space. In addition, it was pastel purple. The couple desired a place where they could escape from their fast-paced lifestyle; they also needed space to prepare for it.
Barry Miller of Simply Baths, Inc. began the project by knocking down the existing walls and extending the room into a hallway on one side and into the master bedroom on the other. This addition made room for double sinks, a vanity with extra storage, a walk-in closet and plenty of space.
The aqua-blue tile with coordinating accents and the sand-colored countertops offer a visual comfort of a Caribbean vacation, while the two-person whirlpool tub and large shower add luxury. The shower features a glass pebble-tile floor, five body jets and an aromatherapy steam unit. It also boasts three showerheads. The window behind the tub and the heated floors provide the finishing touches. The project's outcome made for a spacious getaway, along with a place to gain some peace of mind after a long day.
