When the clients of this 1980’s custom built house decided that they wanted to stay for the rest of their years they felt it was time to address the master bath. After discussing the design flaws and safety issues of the current layout, an “aging in place” renovation was in order. The steps up to the shower / tub area were deleted to create one even floor level throughout and at the same time improving the area. Borrowing some little used square footage from the oversize walk-in closet the water closet was moved into a larger space with wider door access and at the same time allowed the expansion of the sink and vanity area. An awkward window in front of one of the sinks was eliminated and a series of clerestory windows above the mirrors added architectural interest while compensating for any loss of natural light. The materials, finishes and fixtures were selected to create the contemporary aesthetic desired by the client.
This gorgeous bath was featured in the 2018 San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles Bath of the Year edition.
