Freshly remodeled bathroom with soaking tub
We remodeled the main bathroom, taking out the traditional tub and installing a large soaking tub. It is not a jacuzzi, just a tub with the option to fill it up all the way and soak up to your neck! It sits diagonally, but it's not a triangular tub, so it doesn't take much more water than a regular tub for a shallow bath. This tub is great for 2-4 kid baths, or 2 adult baths. There is a shower installed, very nice Grohe brand fixtures with separate temperature control and volume control.
The tilework was done by the same artisan that did our 3-season room. It extends right up over the ceiling in the bath area, and the floor is done in ceramic tile similar to the other room. We installed a new window with glass block as part of this remodel, and the room is so much nicer with natural light. The glass block wall is trimmed in tiger wood and the vanity drawers and cabinet are faced with solid walnut. As in, planks of walnut that are more than 1/2" thick! I wish we could take this bathroom with us. The drawers are built of high quality baltic birch ply with seriously sturdy hardware.
