Birmingham Master Bath
Project with Spire Integrated Systems
Simplicity and elegance are undeniable in this 2019 Birmingham Master Bath renovation. The creamy hues and subtle veining of bright onyx porcelain that adorns the walls, create a polished and refined feel. The nearly seamless slabs provide respite from the busy grout lines of the outdated mosaic tile that existed before. Floating inches above the floor, beautiful custom cabinetry stretches wall to wall featuring drawers and pullouts that offer ample space to tuck away everything one needs to feel pampered. With crisp clean lines and elegant details, it is as enjoyable to look at as it is to use. Polished nickel fixtures and cabinetry trim details sparkle under the soft glow of the light.
Discreet, custom mirrored medicine cabinets recessed into the wall boast additional storage without taking up additional space, ensuring everything has a place. The soft tones of the walls and cabinetry are grounded with a practical and beautiful dark wood inspired tile that continues into the shower. The uninterrupted shower glass all but disappears allowing the eye to meander throughout the space. The lit niche just behind the luxurious soaking tub, creates the perfect home for soothing salts and candles.
Natural light spills into the room from a deliberately placed transom window, designed to let the light in, without getting to know the neighbors too well. As aging in place was a large concern for this homeowner, the shade and lights are all operated with a remote, the walk-in shower was designed to accommodate a wheelchair, and even the freestanding tub was selected specifically because of its lip that would allow someone to grip it firmly when getting in and out of the tub. The tile was selected for its subtle texture and slip-resistant qualities. Blocking at the shower walls and surrounding tub walls was added during framing to allow for the installation of grab bars in the future.
