Today we’re taking you on a tour of our Marvelous Midtown master bathroom remodel.  If you’re considering a bathroom remodel, we hope this provides you with some inspiration and know-how.

The home was originally built in 1955 and the master bath was remodeled in the 70s.  It was luxurious for its time, with white marble and a double vanity, but it was due for an update.


The biggest design hurdle for this remodel was space. Our team had to get creative and hollow out additional square footage from an adjacent closet.  This improved the overall flow of the room and allowed us to install a much more substantial shower.  We positioned the new shower towards the window, which opened the shower walls to a stream of natural light.  We absolutely love a large shower with a lot of natural light.



We had just enough room to add a free-standing tub in an alcove next to the window. Notice the terrazzo-style, porcelain tile we used for the floor and the wainscot surrounding the tub; We’re seeing modern terrazzo being used in many new designs and we were excited to be able to use it in this master bath as a nod to the era in which the home was built.


Great consideration goes in to every detail of our work, so it’s always hard to pick a favorite design element once the job is complete. That said, we really like the way this custom vanity turned out. From the wood paneling behind the mirrors to the mid-century modern sconces, it’s a sophisticated mix of detailed finishes and textures.

Pro tips:

  • Before you remodel, take note of how you use your bathroom and make changes to address how you could improve the space. If you never use a tub, get rid of it and make room for something you will use. If you prefer sitting down to get ready, plan an area where you can sit comfortably and still keep your essentials within arms reach.
  • Depending on size and scope, a typical bathroom remodel will cost $30-$60K.
