When taking on this ‘builder basic’ renovation, designer, Julia Miller, aimed to create a space that exuded understated elegance and a spa-like atmosphere. While most of the work was done from a distance with significant collaboration from the builder, she created a gorgeous bathroom that comes complete with a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and dual vanities.

From the Designer… The homeowner came to us seeking a luxurious primary bathroom, restoring the function of the large space and a desire to make sense of the fixed toilet location. The home was a ‘builder basic’ flip prior to our clients purchasing the home. The vanities were surprisingly large but with little actual storage due to the configuration, the tub surround was giant and dwarfed the tub and the toilet was hidden by a poorly built pony wall. We kept all plumbing in the same location but demo’ed the pony wall in favor of a custom white oak dowel privacy screen and updated the location and electrical fixtures.
We chose two focal points – the freestanding tub that can now comfortably fit our tall client and the checkerboard Fireclay tile. We were crushing on checkerboard patterns for a while and our client was incredibly trusting and approved the layout within minutes of the presentation. The pattern and colors flow well with the rest of the home and give it just a little bit of interest without overwhelming the space. We chose to warm up the space with custom white oak vanities, marble countertops, polished nickel Waterworks plumbing and custom brass Allied Maker lighting.
