While we are always happy to help guide a client in terms of selections, it's also fun when they have strong ideas of their own. In this case, the client knew they wanted to incorporate the original chimney that is a part of the charm of their 1940's Calgary house. Together we settled on a layout that is not only functional but also looks amazing.
Upon first entering the space, you are greeted with heat emanating from the hexagon tiles, thanks to the electric thermostat heating system from Schluter. Walnut cabinets add warmth to the room while also adding plenty of storage. The custom concrete countertops, hrome waterfall faucets from Riobel, and matte subway tiled walls contrast the cabinets and give off a more contemporary look. Under cabinet lighting is motion activated, which adds just enough light for those middle of the night visits.
Stubbed toes won't be a problem with the curbless shower entry. In fact, at first it appears that the shower doesn't have a drain at all because it's actually a linear wall drain that is concealed behind the wall and floor tile. Arguing over the water temperature is a thing of the past as there are two separate Grohe shower heads, each with their own heat control. A custom tiled niche with its own lighting spans the entire length of the shower leaving plenty of storage for shower products.
