My client came in looking to renovate his master bathroom. He wanted a classic look to go along with his home located behind the Lancaster Country Club. Since you can’t get any more classic than Carrara marble and a basket weave design, that was the perfect combination for this redo.
Not only did he want his shower installed with floor to ceiling marble, he wanted his whole bathroom finished the same way. The Garden State 3×6 polished marble was the field tile used for this design with Akdo’s Carrara basket weave border located at eye level. The border was a nice visual that carried the eye around the entire space. The basket weave design was also used on the shower floor and with its 1×2“ pattern, provided nice traction for a sometimes slippery area.
My favorite part of this bathroom remodel was the marble “area rugs” that were made on site through the mechanisms of myself and our installer, Ted Grumbine. The two rectangular “area rugs” were bordered with a 4” dark Bardiglio marble and centered with the same basket weave mosaic used on the shower floor. The centered “area rug” was bordered with the same basket weave border used on the bathroom walls and filled in with the basket weave mosaic. This center attraction was placed on a 45’ angle which was a perfect placement for when the client enters the bathroom each morning and night.
Lastly, two matching washstand style vanities were installed on opposite sides of the bathroom. The chrome legs were offset by the Carrara marble top that Indoor city installed. An ogee edge profile was the perfect silhouette to finish these beautiful pieces.
