Master Bathroom Remodel – Elegance Defined!, a division of, is a multi-trade company in Raleigh NC handling all of your plumbing, electrical, carpentry, and tile needs. In this article, we will take you through the steps that made this bathroom an elegant and inviting space!

This project involved turning a 1980’s bathroom into an amazing retreat for these homeowners. Careful planning is required! A great remodel project will not only give you a new and updated space, but it should also be cohesive to the overall style of your home.

The original bathroom, shown here, was outdated with the bulky tub. The design was basic, without much pizazz. The shower was beginning to fail, and the finishes were outdated.

The demo phase uncovers any potential problems that could not be seen on the surface. Fortunately with this project, there was nothing unexpected to hold up project progress.

Demo Phase

We elected to keep the same footprint for this remodel. The shower knee wall was created higher than the original to accommodate a towel bar. The bathtub was replaced with a freestanding tub and custom paneling surround. Recessed shelving was added to the right of the tub to display decorative items. At the back wall of the recessed shelving, a beautiful Mother of Pearl herringbone tile is installed to introduce texture and shine!

Speaking of the Mother of Pearl herringbone tile, it was too beautiful to use in just one area! In order to achieve a balanced look, the herringbone tile was installed at the vanity wall as well as the back wall of the recessed niche in the shower.

The addition of the custom recessed shelving with decorative tile is the perfect backdrop to display your favorite items and keep necessary items close at hand while relaxing in the freestanding tub!

The custom shaker style vanity is dressed up with a center tower and beautiful honed stone top. The tile wall is meant to be the focal point of this area, and honed stone is the perfect choice in this situation! The mirrors are kept slim and non-elaborate for the same reason. The lighting introduces style but is kept small to allow the tile to take center stage. Decorative cabinet hardware is a great way to introduce individual style.

In case you are wondering, the plumbing fixtures used in this project are from the Delta Stryke collection. A perfect choice for this bathroom, as it has a modern shape with some softness. We often use the Delta Trinsic collection for a  modern application but this bathroom needed something slightly warmer and the Delta Stryke fit the bill perfectly!

While lighting can be unique to each persons style, we have to agree that this is the perfect choice to round out the look for this bathroom. Attention to detail was made to make sure the roman shade matched the shade of the light fixture. The whole bathroom is just breathtaking!
