Transitional Master Bathroom Remodel in Bethesda, MD.
Design by Meghan Browne. Photography by Keiana Photography.
This master bath needed a major refresh. The layout worked but an oversized built-in tub, completely
enclosed shower and dated vanity made this room less than desirable for a master bathroom retreat.
By tearing down a part of the enclosed shower walls and creating a flush floor from the main bathroom,
the shower transformed from a dark space into a bright, open shower. This also allowed the colorful tile
pattern to peak through into the main bathroom.
The oversized enclosed Jacuzzi tub was replaced with a free-standing soaking tub. A wall was built with
open shelving that now houses towels and decorative items, but also allowed the tub to sit centered
between the walls and under the window. This niche transformed the tub area from an afterthought
into a sculptural centerpiece.
A small linen closet was removed from the vanity wall in order to create more usable cabinet storage.
The main vanity is encased by tall cabinets in an oiled rift white oak. The natural rift white oak plays well
with the pop of a blue-green vanity. The vanity holds smart storage cabinets including (2) pull out units
with plug-ins for hair dryers and curling irons as well as swing-out trash units. The 2-1/2” thick Tahiti quartzite countertop and backsplash with blue, green and grey veining tie the bathroom materials together beautifully.
