Our 1960’s Remodel Continued – Master Bath Makeover

We are continuing our tour of the 1964 contemporary home that we introduced to you last week.

To help you understand how the master bathroom was restructured, I have included some before and after floor plans of this space.  The original bathroom was cramped with a double vanity, toilet and tub, all lined up in a row.  There was a dressing room outside the master bedroom which also served as the “foyer” through which a person would enter the master bathroom or either of the two adjacent walk-in closets.  By opening up the walls between the dressing room, bathroom and one of the closets, we were able to create a roomy, “L” shaped master bathroom.

We kept the original dressing table and the lighting fixtures that hang down on each side (visible in one of the before pictures), but changed the top to the same material that was used on the master vanity.

As you can see, we now have a very beautiful, updated and very masculine master bathroom.  This bathroom features natural limestone floor and wall tile, glass and stone accent tile and a natural stone pebble floor in the shower.  The modern vanity is accented with a 36” rectangular vessel sink.  We discovered some of the wood veneer used to craft the original cabinetry.  Since we kept the original dressing table, we were able to use the “discovered” wood on the new vanity and recessed medicine cabinets to create a perfect material match with the dressing table.

Hope you enjoy the tour of the master bathroom!
