Bathroom Remodel: Before & After

The original bathroom had some extravagance to it, including a walk-in shower, a double-sink vanity and a walk-in linen closet. However, the layout didn’t go beyond the angular, sectionalized aesthetic found in average-sized bathrooms, including a wall-size mirror along the vanity which only made the floral wallpaper more overwhelming. And the renovation began….

Taking an open-concept approach to the remodel turned the existing large bathroom into a luxurious spa experience. Removing walls allowed for a reimagining of the entire space, which positioned the new walk-in shower as the centerpiece. Glass doors open the field of vision so the outside doesn’t feel sectionalized and inside feels spacious. A steam generator, hand-held showerhead and fixed rainshower head, along with a heated, fog-free mirror for shaving all make this a next-level shower. Placing the vanity next to the shower, instead of across from it, opened up space for a spa tub. No one will get chilled going from the tub to the shower, or the shower to the his and her dressing rooms, on the radiant-heated tile floor.

Rather than a free-standing makeup table, the homeowner now can sit at a custom-built and extravagant dressing table, complete with mirrored shelving, marble counter, and a sink.


Custom cabinets, medicine cabinets, and shelving maximize storage throughout. The three rooms bathe in natural light coming in through sizable windows along the exterior wall and ceiling.
This remodel project won a gold PRISM award from BRAGB (Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston, in 2015.
