Project Location: Glen Ellyn, IL
Design Challenge: The main problem was the outdated look of the space, which was rather dark and dreary, and the giant unused whirlpool tub which took up more than its fair share of the footprint.
Solution: To brighten the room and help amplify the sunlight streaming in through the existing skylight and vaulted ceiling, we used a pallet of soft gray porcelain tile on the floor and ceramic subway tiles on the walls. We placed the new freestanding tub on an angle near the window so that users can take advantage of the view and light while soaking in the tub. A new, much larger shower takes up the other corner and delivers some symmetry to the room and is now a luxurious and comfortable size. The existing opening between the sink area and the main area was widened and the door removed so that the homeowners can enjoy the light from the larger room.
