Lifestyle changes as well as worn and outdated bathroom fixtures prompted the need for this master bathroom remodel in Lafayette. Particular pain points included:
- An unused soaking tub
- An outdated, fiberglass shower
- Inconvenient access to the couple’s home office through the master suite closet
- Inadequate countertop space
- Ineffective vanity sconces that were positioned too low
- A frozen waterline in the exterior wall that made the toilet unusable
Riverside Construction’s creative solution started with removing the shower and converting it into a new hallway, and subsequently creating convenient door access to the existing home office. In place of the unused tub, a new custom tiled shower designed and built with 18×18 Severino Cenere Daltile. The new Emser Cultura™ Autumn Pebble mosaic tile floor pairs beautifully with the main bathroom floor—Daltiles Willow Bend Smoky Brown. Other shower features include a practical oversize bench, integrated shower shelving, and Delta stainless steel fixtures.
Riverside updated the existing vanity with a Lennon granite countertop. Smaller undermount sinks were used to increase the counter space, exactly what the homeowners asked for. In addition, the existing sconces were repositioned appropriately away from the mirrors.
Last but not least, Riverside properly insulated the freeze-prone pipes on the outside wall to prevent them from freezing again.
