It had always been the plan that his childhood home would be this couple’s retirement home. They looked to us to help them take the 1920ish home out of the 1970’s décor and bring it into the 21st century and create a more modern open concept main floor.
A freestanding tub sits in a curbless/doorless showering area with a regular shower head and a waterfall shower in the ceiling, a double vanity allows for both to get ready at the same time and a separate toilet room allows for privacy. A pocket door closes off this new Ensuite, avoiding door swings. This oasis is our client’s favourite room.
The finishing’s are fitting to the era of the home and fit with the remainder of the home. The dark vanity recalls the dark siding on the outside, the oil rubbed bronze plumbing fixtures really pop against the classic white subway tiles, and Carrera countertop and sills. The floor-mount tub filler makes a statement at the freestanding tub. The window over the tub is frosted glass to avoid having curtains/blinds and is an awning so it can be opened while maintaining privacy. Carrera sills finish off the window for a trim-less look.
