As part of an addition, this master bathroom is awe-inspiring. The homeowner’s requirements seemed simple – a separate soaker tub and shower, honey bronze finishes and a herringbone floor.
What seems simple often comes with surprises, in the remodeling industry. In this project, the existing house was out of square more than half an inch. Having an existing structure that much out of square affected the entire addition, but impacted the flooring the most. Requesting a herringbone pattern for the floor added to the challenge.
In order to correct the flooring, the two existing inside walls of the bathroom (original to the house) had to be reframed to meet the standards of the new exterior walls of the addition. Our craftsmen also had to plane the crown of the floor joist down, keeping in mind the existing door entry. They had to make sure the flooring would be level with the existing house floor.
Using sand and cement as the underlayment for the tile evened the flooring out to accommodate the long tiles. A heated floor was installed before the herringbone tile pattern was created with a large 4 x 12 porcelain tile.
The cabinetry and vanities in Wellborn’s Dove Slate color with Honey Bronze finish in cabinet hardware, lighting and mirrors, warms the space with lots of room for storage.
A 66” x 36” Sunstruck freestanding tub tucked perfectly under the backyard window, which lets in natural light. The Vicostone Gioia Carrara in polished quartz for the countertops mirrors the floor to finish the room.
