1990’s Era Bath Gets an Update


Customer Issues

The master bath in this 1990 vintage home was calling out for help. Aesthetically it was tired, dated and needed an update. Functionally it was a disaster with a large unused tub and 16 square feet of dead space consuming most of the room. On top of that there was a moisture and mold issue that needed to be addressed.

Bel Air Construction Solutions

To address all the issues with the bath, the Bel Air Construction team’s recommendation was to remove all remnants of the original bath including the large unused tub, the aluminum shower frame, prefabricated shower pan, and the framed 16 square foot dead space. The walls were stripped to the studs.

Working with a blank canvas and within the footprint of the previous bath the Bel Air Construction design team transformed an uninspired bathroom into the aesthetically pleasing and extremely functional contemporary master bath that the homeowner desired.

Accented with subtle textures and tones the features of this master bath renovation include:

  • A larger custom shower with a bench, storage niche, fixed and hand-held shower heads, and a frameless glass enclosure. The shower walls are Daltile Linden Point Grigio porcelain tile that emulates a soft linear stone with varying horizontal veining. The shower floor is hex shaped Contempo Carrara stone-look glass tiles with subtle grey veining on a pure white background.
  • The electric radiant heated floors are covered with Daltile Linden Point Grigio porcelain tile.
  • All tile is installed over Schluter substrates, an integrated family of products in which the individual components collectively form a bonded, watertight assembly which eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration.
  • The use of high performance Spectralock grout with built-in Microban®antimicrobial product protection fights the growth of mold and mildew on grout surface.
  • A white Durasupreme Bria Frameless vanity provides an abundance of storage space and is topped with a Silestone Steller Snow counter with two undermount sinks.
  • The improved layout allowed for the creation of a make-up area with matching Durasupreme cabinetry with a Silestone Steller Snow counters, the addition of a linen closet and a much-desired enclosed toilet room that provides privacy and features a pocket door to conserve space.
  • Moen Voss brushed nickel fixtures and hardware are used throughout the bath.
  • Two Jayapura lighted vanity mirrors are used instead of traditional vanity lights. Watch the video to see how they work.
