Relaxing Retreat
In this sophisticated master suite addition, the homeowners were looking for a space to call their own. Working with Liston Construction Company, they created a clean, fresh bath where they could retreat and relax. In need of more space, their previous bathroom lacked storage space, countertop space and flow. On the homeowners’ wish list for their new bath was a freestanding soaking tub and a large tiled shower with multiple showerheads and body sprays, in addition to more space and better lighting. Liston created an exquisite entrance to the master bath with 8’ tall knotty-alder sliding wood doors that frame the Aquatic floor-mounted soaking tub. Resembling rustic, distressed wood, the plank tile flooring adds a causal element to the subdued color palette. Complementing the flooring, maple species painted and glazed cabinetry in a rich angora finish blends traditional and transitional elements. The shower was tiled to resemble Carrera Marble, and the Cambria quartz countertops in New Quay finish unify the space. Polished nickel faucets, lighting and bath accessories finish the space.

Why the judges love it:
This bathroom is timeless. The color selection of the wood is great. Allowing the mirrors to be adjustable makes the vanity space so practical. The mixing of materials gives the space interest. Overall, the bathroom has a classic style and a dressing room-like feel.
