Project Greenway is FINALLY rockin’ and we are finalizing exterior and interior detail over the next few weeks. Framing started this week and I have to say, we have the BEST framers on the project and they have been kicking tail when it comes to getting everything up. I PROMISE to share pictures soon…it has been a rough few weeks on the job site but we are finally on track.
After a walk through this past weekend, we decided that the space for the shower/tub could be a bit larger. SO….I sacrificed a foot of my closet and I’m really happy that I did. I love the idea of a wet room and we were all about it from the day we met with our architect. We can add an element that makes the space a steam room too so this is going to be a a very spa like place to shake of a stressful day. Here is the inspiration board that I created months ago. Classic marble throughout, brass accents, acrylic hardware and modern details are on the top of the “want” list for the bathroom and with a little tweaking we were able to make it work!
This….I mean…I just can’t! I fell in love with this concept and there was no looking back. My husband is just excited to have a shower where he doesn’t bump his elbows every time he washes his hair or soaps up. He is also pretty excited about adding the steam feature to the space….we had to give up a few things to make that work in the budget though.
This layout is exactly like our bathroom. I decided to add a 42″ H “half wall” on the front of the tub for a bit more privacy and I wanted to have the marble on all three sides too. Remodeling always has its challenges and Project Greenway is overflowing with them. Finding a way to create a spacious master bedroom, bathroom and closets in a 1949 bungalow had us pulling out hair out at times. This configuration was perfect for the limited layout options.
HUGE shelf storage is a must for us. I want to have space to put larger shampoo bottles as well as other things you use in a tub/shower with out the shelves being cluttered. We decided to use a freestanding teak bench instead of a built-in too, but I love the large rectangular shelf the most!
