Reston Master Bathroom Gets A Facelift

Previous Poorly Installed ShowerIn this bathroom facelift, the homeowners’ shower stall was poorly constructed by a previous contractor, leading to leaks through the floor into the kitchen ceiling below. The old bathtub was too short for the tall homeowners, so we took out the tub structure to make way for a longer, more elegant stand alone tub. Fortunately the homeowner had extra floor tile from the previous renovation, so we patched the floor and purchased new shower tile to blend with the existing tile.

We tore out the old shower and installed proper water proof membranes behind the Durock walls. Then we re-tiled with a very organic set of flat pebbles for the shower floor, porcelain wood plank tiles for the shower walls, and a touch of marble mosaics to the shower and new bathtub niches (“Claros Silver Tumbled Cobble” from the Tile Shop, “Rain” porcelain plank tiles from the Mosaic Tile Company, and “Arabescato Seaweed Wave” from the Mosaic Tile Company).

Renovated Bath

The new taller, frameless shower glass enclosure allows for these tall homeowners to easily access their new towel warmer (“Infinity” by WarmlyYours).

The new stand alone tub (“Emily” 69″ acrylic tub from the “Wyndham Collection”) is longer, yet still allows enough leg space for the toilet, and helps make the room feel larger. New modern polished chrome fixtures tie the new pieces together with the existing vanity.

Finally, a soothing coat of aqua (“Catalina Blue” from Benjamin Moore) was applied to the walls to give this Master Bath retreat a truly spa-like feel!”
