Space Planning Improves Master Bath Functionality

EXISTING BATHROOM:  Located in rural Noblesville, this 11 year old master bathroom was suffering from water pressure issues and lack of functionality. “The original steam component of the shower quit working, the vessel sinks were not practical and the original angles of the walls created wasted space. We wanted to reconfigure the bathroom to allow for a bigger walk-in shower and a larger tub.”



EXPANDED SHOWER & TUB:  Once the demolition of the existing bathroom was complete, the wall framing was modified at the existing shower/vanity area to allow for the new shower half wall, bench and niches.


New water lines and shower valves were installed for the Delta “Dryden” shower heads and body sprays.


The existing tub drain and water supply lines were also relocated for the new Jacuzzi corner tub.


VANITY & CHARGING STATION DETAILS: With the second vanity gone, the main single sink vanity was replaced with a reverse double vanity in a sable with black glaze finish.


To maximize on storage space, the vanity features two floor level drawers as opposed to using false upper drawers.


A linen cabinet was added to the back wall for extra storage and also doubles as a charging station with built-in USB ports.

MATERIAL SELECTIONS: “We wanted more natural light in the bathroom and wanted the materials to reflect rich and warm colors.” Cambria quartz in a “Sussex” color was chosen for the vanity countertop and shower parts including the bench, wall, threshold and niche caps.


To contrast with the quartz material, “contempo tan” tile was selected for the shower wall while the “Gobi Corinth” accent tile and “Canyon Olive” heated floor tile add warmth.


Oil rubbed bronze finishes were chosen for all of the plumbing fixtures and hardware pieces to compliment the warm tones of the cabinetry and floor tile.


A glass panel was installed to the half wall to allow natural light to stream into the bathroom from the shower glass block window.



“The new layout of the bathroom is much more functional than what we had previously. At this time of the year, we have really come to appreciate and love the heated tile floor the most.”
