Before

This master ensuite in a Tudor-style family home was bland and dated, with an awkward corner tub and a closed-in shower. The layout was inefficient, and the decor was boring and beige.

After

Designer Victoria McKenney optimized the layout and helped select new contemporary finishes for this bathroom renovation.

Serene retreat

The homeowners wanted a retreat from busy family life, so a serene colour palette of pale blue, navy and white was used to create a feeling of calm. Gleaming glass and stone finishes modernize the room, while leaded-glass windows lend it a heritage quality.

The layout

The large 10-by-20-foot floor plan was rearranged to eliminate the corner tub. Now a clean-lined free-standing tub is tucked into the 25-square-foot window alcove, and even with a double vanity and built-in storage, there's still plenty of space.

Shower and floors

The shower opening was widened to create a more spacious area with a glass door to brighten it up, while the show-stopping diamond pattern floors were created with cream porcelain tiles bordered by navy ones.

Design elements

A large-scale diamond pattern on the floor adds interest and creates a more intimdate impression. The sloped ceilings and complicated roof lines of this second-storey space give it automatic character.
