Worth The Investment

An Elegant Transformation

Ronald and Mary Ray were ready to change their decade-old master bathroom.

“This was a complete renovation,” says Lori Sparkman, owner of Fifteenth and Home Furniture and Décor. “We kept the same footprint of the space but took the room back to the studs.”

Sparkman and Dave Trebilcock, owner of Trebilcock Construction, coordinated the two-month implementation.

A new feature in the bath is the floor-to-ceiling glass steam shower. Visions Tile and Stone supplied the imported Italian tile that was selected for the flooring and shower. Sparkman also used a freestanding contemporary matte finish Aqua Stone soaking tub with Kohler’s Stillness floor-mounted bath filler.

One of the unique changes facing the designer was the addition of a sparkling chandelier.

“We imported the SLAMP Lillibet fixture from Italy,” says Sparkman. “It has 56 crystals made from laser-cut prisma acrylic.”

The reflection of the window over the tub onto the vanity mirror then bounces back to the polished tile shower wall, adding to the daytime illumination.

The floor-to-ceiling glass steam shower makes a dramatic statement in this renovated master bath.
