Making a Splash With a Pool Bath

Below are some "after" photos of a pool bath that our team renovated. The original bathroom had dated floral wallpaper that screamed 1993, along with a builder grade vanity, frameless mirror and a standard builder grade light. The old shower had dated tile and a shower enclosure also from 1993. 

The effect on the wall was done by our faux artist. Instead of removing the wallpaper she used an adhesion primer and than created the metallic look by using Modern Masters Metallic Paint.

We replaced the old vanity with a custom new one. The new vanity features a onyx countertop,
and an amber glass vessel bowl. 

The travertine floor was laid with a zero grout line on a diamond pattern.

The new shower features travertine stone that was laid in a brick pattern.
When the stone was purchased it came as a 18" x 18" square.
We had our tile guys cut each stone in half (9" x 18") this saved the homeowner
on the cost of the stone since ordering a 9" x 18" was triple the cost per square foot. 

Inside the shower we used a glass mosaic tile to create a focal point.
The colors in the glass tile tie into the wall color, the honey onyx that is used on the vanity,
and the amber of the vessel sink.  

Note: When using a glass tile used an unsanded grout.

The baseboards, crown molding, doors, and trim in the room were painted black.

A new frameless shower door was installed.

New lighting was installed over the vanity.

Our thanks go out to those who helped on this project.
