The Monmouth County homeowners wanted the 1980’s master bathroom converted into a brighter, trendier four-fixture bathroom with a large comfortable shower, private water closet, and an upscale double vanity. The bathroom remodel was a part of other renovations including the reconfiguration of the master bedroom and walk-in closet. The redefined space allocated for the new master bathroom was one third less than the original.
The major challenge was how to design and reconfigure the space. The new bathroom depth was limited to seven and a half feet. Plus a large three section casement window in the space could not be moved since it is on the front side of the home with stucco exterior walls.
The shower was positioned to have the large window it. It did add great light and a nice look with the marble finished shower walls. The bench seat was placed adjacent to the front window wall the back wall adorned with glass tile placed vertically simulating a water cascade. The double vanity had to be done at a right angle on two walls because of the space, but also adds to the personality of the room, especially with the corner wall unit. The backlit vanity mirrors are a point of high interest to all that see them. The super white quartzite top offsets the dark vanity well and blends nicely with the marble while offering a more durable surface.
The end result is a trendy metropolitan master bathroom for this contemporary home in Monmouth Beach.
The project design and development was by the Design Build Planners. The bathroom and the entire home was remodeled by Mark of Excellence.
