AS I’ve said before, I love the Before & After articles I read in magazines, because it’s so much fun to see the transformations! This Porter Ranch master bathroom was still living in the 80s. Check out the:
- Super-ugly tile that covered the floors AND — lucky for them — the walls too.
- A shower stall with brass trim
- Plain Jane cabinets
- Dated lighting
- No place to hang towels
Today, the bath is soothing and serene with a light, neutral palette. The glass mosaic tile was the starting point for my design. I like how it contrasts with the matte subway tile and adds some sparkle to the room.
Because glass tile often lacks trim pieces, we framed the shower niche with the same quartz we used on the shower/tub surround and countertops. This way, the jagged edges of the glass mosaic can “die into” the quartz. It’s a clean and elegant solution.
The room wasn’t quite large enough to do a stand-alone tub, so we built in a luxurious soaking tub and added a frameless shower stall to keep the room as open and airy as possible. I found these gorgeous vanities at Modern Bathroom and fell in love with their rounded fronts and chrome legs.
