Mastering the Details

The entire master bathroom remodel was designed to the detail by Castle Design to be both functional and beautiful. The challenge the designer faced was that the size and shape of the space of the bath in the historic Clayton residence couldn’t be modified. Thoughtful and creative planning transformed the space into a more functional master bath. 

The designer, Lauren Sweet-Schuler, removed the unused tub allowing ample space to create the ideal luxury shower, which features marble finishes and state-of-the-art fixtures. Taking full advantage of every square inch, a custom built-in linen cabinet adds much needed storage. The vanity is a stunning showpiece with its custom mirrored front. Polished fixtures and hardware add a bit of sparkle. On the floor, Thassos, a pure white marble, is paired with iridescent Rivershell in a hand-laid basket weave. Classic clean lines and symmetry make this marble-lined master bath in perfect harmony.

Why the judges love it:
All elements of this bath design are pulled through nicely. It is so simple yet sophisticated, sleek and clean. We love how the splash of blue tile in the shower matches the wall color. The stone shower bench is beautiful and functional.
