Clean and Serene

The finished main bath is elegant and spa-like, with the crowning touch overhead: a wood-and-iron chandelier sourced from a local salvage shop. The Carters had just installed a similar piece in their dining room when they realized how good it would look in their newly remodeled bathroom — so a second shopping trip yielded the same model in a different color.

Before the Remodel

The dark mauve garden tub appeared to suck all the light out of the main bathroom, even though it was located right next to a large window. Even worse, tiles had begun to disintegrate in the surround and the smell of mold had become noticeable. To Christa, the tub always felt old and dirty even when it was clean.

Shower Power

A larger walk-in shower was the top priority for John and Christa. Done in ceramic tile with a glass tile accent, the shower features both a traditional showerhead and a handheld spray for easy cleaning.

Extra Storage

Four built-in shower niches provide enough storage that the Carters don't miss the linen closet they had to eliminate.
