Issue & Resolution
The architecture of the home is cottage style, built in the late 1800’s initially for working class families. The bathroom was very outdated and in need of some serious TLC. We completely gutted the room – which included leveling the floor, raising the ceiling and replacing the window. When we opened up the walls we were able to enlarge the shower enclosure allowing for a spacious walk-in shower.
The bathroom has Bianca Carrera Marble throughout – on the counter-top, on the floor and on the walls, with the same marble in a mosaic pattern on the shower floor. The room has gone from ‘drab’ to ‘fab’. The marble is timeless and classic. We finished it off with gleaming chrome accent features that reference the original era of the home.
