This Spa Bathroom remodel created a luxury retreat for our clients.
This Spa Bathroom remodel project started out as a small, dated 80’s bathroom, and was transformed into an expansive, luxury retreat for these Vancouver clients.
In consultation with SKG, our clients decide to increase the size of their ensuite bathroom by about 30% by transforming the awkwardly small “walk in closet” space that was between the bath and bedroom. We eliminated the “walk-in” to create a larger “built-in” custom wardrobe on the bedroom side and in the process, allowed an extra 3′ of floor space in the bathroom area. The extra area allowed us to install a curved tub deck with a drop-in acrylic soaker tub, all tiled with a combination of pocelain and glass mosaics. The tub filler and valve trim were deck mounted, with a hand shower wand for rinsing and hair washing after a long bath. There was also room for a 3’x6′ shower branching off the end of the tub deck on the adjacent wall, with an almost invisible fixed glass panel instead of a shower door, a river rock base, and high-end valve assemblies which included a hand shower, rain shower, and seperate control valves for each. This spa bathroom remodel also involved tiling the entire wall surface around the tub deck and shower surround with a 2’x1′ pocelain tile with a smaller strip tile feature, and a shower niche for soaps and shampoo. The vanity was the pinnacle of beauty in this extraordinary bathroom suite. A floating 4 drawer vanity with custom walnut veneered drawer fronts and side panel, a quartz stone counter, and two square deck-mount sinks with premium faucets. The backsplash was tiled with the same beautiful glass mosaic as was used on the tub deck curve. Included in this rich walnut vanity ensemble was a mirror unit with medicine cabinets on each side and finished in the same beautiful walnut veneer as were the vanity drawers. The lighting in this spa bathroom remodel included a LED strip light mounted under the vanity, three recessed pot lights installed in the ceiling, and a bright vanity light mounted on the top portion of the mirror cabinet, all controlled by electronic dimmers. Electric “in-floor” heating was also installed, and the entire floor surface was covered with a beautiful white 12″x12″ marble tile. A powerful exhaust fan controlled by a moisture switch, was also installed to keep the room dry and comfortable.
