Style File: Master Bathroom Redo in Greater Boston

THE STORY “The client was expanding her Greater Boston home by adding on a new second floor. She came into the showroom with the builder’s plans for her master bath, feeling a little overwhelmed. For starters, we made some layout improvements. We nixed a closet and, in its place, built the decorative, hexagon tile-lined display niche with custom door cabinet by Mouser. Natural light is key, so I encouraged her to install three windows above the tub instead of just the one planned. Since she has three boys and this is her private retreat, our goal was to promote serenity. We opted for soft green Red Rock tiles lining the curb-free shower; then the tile repeats as wainscoting. Taupe-grey Alys Edwards porcelain floor tiles contribute to the room’s warm tone. A 10-inch shower rainhead and Lithocast Kohler soaking tub optimize her pampering options. Overall, the space is open, airy, and soothing—it’s just what she wanted.” – Stephen Puopolo, Kohler Signature Store by Supply New England
