This extremely large master bathroom in Sterling, VA was in need of a facelift. It was a builder’s grade bathroom with old white octagon tile on the bathroom floor, 4 x 6 tile surrounding the old jacuzzi tub, an outdated cherry-stained vanity, and bulky chrome shower doors.
Here one day, gone the next!!!
All of the tile on the bathroom floor was jack hammered out of an old bed of mortar. Old vanity, mirror, toilet, jacuzzi bathtub, and shower….gone. We completely gutted the entire bathroom, including replacing the plumbing, reworking the electrical, and applying new sub-flooring.
Next, we focused on the new shower. After framing it with durock, we installed white marble octagon-shaped tile on the shower floor and staggered 12 x 24 white marble tiles on the shower walls. Additionally, we placed a 4 x12 marble border around the sides and top of the shower. All of the chrome plumbing supplies are Grohe and all of the marble is from Marble Systems.
On those cool mornings, there is nothing nicer than stepping onto a heated bathroom floor. My crew installed the floor heating on top of a base layer of durock. Then, we placed white marble 18 x 18 tile going diagonally across the bathroom floor for a unique feature.
Once the flooring was completed, it was time to bring in the tub… not a small feat! My guys had to bring it in sideways through the doors in the house but thankfully it arrived in two pieces, the base, and the basin. We situated it under the skylight in the bathroom and centered it in front of the window.
Then, we brought in the vanity and positioned it on the wall opposite the shower and tub. We chose a well-defined double vanity with a marble countertop that complemented the marble throughout the entire bathroom.
There were two finishing touches in this stunning master bathroom. First, my crew installed the full glass panel shower door and walls, giving the bathroom a sleek and open feel. Second, we brought in a large beveled edge mirror and hung it over the vanity. Lastly, we installed three chrome sconces on the actual mirror, providing plentiful lighting.
