From dated dud to modern master suite

With a breathtaking stone-look canopy rising over the bath and other luxe details, this master suite evokes an upmarket hotel-like spa retreat

This master bathroom began with green, floral wallpaper complete with border, glass block window, brass accents and wall to wall carpet.

The homeowners decided they loved the area and just needed to update the home so they could enjoy it for at least another 10 years. The area has beautiful mature trees and they wanted to bring some natural elements indoors to create a modern, spa-like retreat.

The glass block window was replaced with a picture window and a motorised shade added that brings privacy while still allowing natural light for the makeup vanity.

Textured tiles and a back-lit mirror add to the bathroom's sense of drama.

His and hers vessel sinks with wall-mounted faucets atop a floating vanity have the feel of a luxury hotel. The vanity mirror is lit with LED lights to complete the hotel bathroom experience.

The owners also wanted a shower big enough for two, so an existing closet was taken out to make room for this.

During demolition, an air duct was discovered that spanned the shower space. The duct was low and it was decided that the shower bench would be placed atop the duct.

The free-standing tub was placed in the centre of the room and an entablature introduced above this to create a visual focal point. The entablature is covered in a large format agate patterned porcelain tile with LED lighting placed in a reveal behind it to create ambient lighting – contributing to the perfect spa experience while soaking in the tub.

Lighting was also added in the shower niches, on a dimmer.

The floors are a honed marble which is slip resistant and also contrasts nicely with the high gloss finish of the cabinets.

A large linen cabinet was added to make up for storage space lost when we removed the closet.

The vanity and shower wall tiles are two different textures of the same natural stone which creates an interesting organic element that complements the space while creating visual interest.
