To begin, the third floor bathroom door shifts from the hallway into the master bedroom. This fundamental change of the space allows the room to blossom with the addition of a luxurious 40”x40” shower. The unique style of claw foot tub is enhance and refreshed with an ice grey paint to match the art deco tile that defines the walls.

With the newly defined space comes redefinition of light. A solar tube illuminates the shower area of the master bedroom ensuite, promoting daylight and reducing the need for electrical light. This unique Sun tube has internal lights for nighttime and a fan to vent the shower moisture. Integrated into the side of the glass shower door is a robe hook and a loop to store your razor. Completing the shower are triangular glass shelves, supplying room for storage, plus a place to rest one’s foot while shaving.

Art deco light fixtures compliment the mirror in symmetry while the medicine cabinet enhances functionality with internal outlets for shavers and toothbrushes and a defogging heated mirror. The lower edge of the mirrored door has an integrated LED nightlight to ensure smooth nocturnal navigation while an interior light from the linen closet glows through the frosted glass door, making the shower area even more inviting. The heated towel rack and heated floor bring the warmth to match the welcome given to the eyes through this design.
