THE OBJECTIVE

To create a tranquil, contemporary spa/sanctuary, the priority for this home was on modernizing the space within its existing footprint; transform and re-invent the room, rather than tear it down, to create the desired luxurious sanctuary.

HOW IT WAS ACHIEVED

The wall between the bath and shower was replaced with frameless glass achieving client’s desire for a fresh, uncluttered aesthetic, the shower area now enjoys the view and more natural light. An extra-deep angular air-jet tub replaces unhygienic water-jet tub, and the surround is raised to windowsill level, enhancing view-lines. The unsightly flat roof visible from the tub is covered with river rock, a simple, durable solution to create pleasant visual continuity.

KEY FEATURES

The marble-tile feature, beside the tub, is inspired by the “classic lantern pattern” the homeowners fell in love with during their world travels. Three types of marble add dramatic, elegant texturing that elevates this section of wall to a stand-alone art piece.

The vanity’s millwork is identically finished to the sleeping area’s custom bed frame to enhance sense of flow and connectivity. The square vessel-style sinks give a sophisticated resort-feel.

The shower features floral etched tiles for beauty; built-in bench plus both rain shower-head and handheld wand for convenience. The skylight’s west-facing well wall was angled inward to create space for the chandelier to be strategically centered, so crystals catch the fading sunset light transforming it into rainbow prisms dancing across the room.

We’re extremely happy with our new master bathroom. TQ did everything to make the project successful and beautiful.  They came thru with some great ideas and special materials that we never would have found in a million years, details that set our space apart from any others we’ve seen…  If a friend asked me for a referral I would 100% give it. TQ has very high standards and everything they do is about maintaining and exceeding those standards. With TQ you’re paying top dollar for excellence, and you’re getting fair value, no question. In our case, we had way too much invested in our home to try and save a few bucks with less professional contractors.  Everything TQ promised, was delivered.
