Freestanding Tub and Tile Shower with Frameless Glass

New layout, fixtures and hardware update this West Raleigh bathroom to give it a fresh and inviting feel.

Bathroom At A Glance
  • Location: Raleigh, NC
  • Project Type: Primary Bathroom
  • Backstory: The homeowners were unhappy with the overall aesthetic and layout of their primary bathroom. Firstly, their wish list included removing the garden tub. It was an outdated space hog. Secondly, they wanted to re-locate and enlarge the walk in shower. In addition, they wanted to relocate both vanities and light fixtures, install all new tile, cabinetry, lighting, and plumbing fixtures.

The floorpan didn’t work well for the homeowners and they really wanted to combine the vanity space and create a larger shower. The existing shower was only 32″ x 45″ and was in the perfect location for a large functional closet.

To remedy, we decided to move the shower to the back corner in place of the existing vanity and remove the garden tub to create a whopping 48″x 60″ walk in shower. In addition, the full glass surround on the new shower created the open feeling we needed to angle a new freestanding tub in the space.

Bright white statuary tile on the walls helped reflect more light and the sleek black natural stone on the floor created a solid anchor for the room. A new furniture style double vanity on the opposite wall gave them more counter space for personal items and more cohesion in their bathroom.

Finally, new mirrors, matte black hardware, and the newly popular sconce lighting put the bow on top. Take a look at the AFTER pics below.
