Before & After: See a Boring Bathroom Transform Into Spa-Like Serenity

Builder-grade basics turn luxe.

With limited cabinet space, a standard-issue shower and bathtub, and no natural light, this 150-square foot master bathroom was about as basic as they come. The homeowners wished for a space that was both efficient as well as aesthetically pleasing. So designers from Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath stepped in, renovating the boring bath to create a relaxing, serene, and warm environment. The plain shower was replaced with a larger walk-in that includes a built-in bench and spa-style shower sprays, and the drop-in bathtub made way for a tranquil, free-standing soaking tub. Glass mosaic tiles behind the tub were placed to create a waterfall effect. To remedy the lack of daylight, a drop ceiling and cove lighting were built to mimic a skylight. Final details? A luxe heated floor and a TV screen tucked into the medicine cabinet for entertainment during long soaks.
