First Friday Feature: A Tudor Master Bath Reborn

We love working in older homes. This 1925 Tudor master bath was originally in a completely different part of the home. Originally, the master was a jack and jill bath in the front of the house. But who wants to share their master bath with a child or guest?! Not these homeowners. The new Tudor master bath was moved to the back of the home, partly created by a full two-story addition. Taking the original home style and mixing in modern aesthetics, as well as updated functionality, created the perfect space for this couple. We love how it turned out!


The gorgeous vanity, along with a tall linen cabinet (not pictured) are WW Woods Shiloh, Aspen door style. The furniture-style inset freestanding piece was modified wider to create more storage for this couple. It was custom finished to match the Sherwin Williams 9179 “Anchors Aweigh” navy blue color. However, the mirrors are recessed medicine cabinet from Robern.


Keeping it simple, the homeowners went with a quartz product for easy maintenance. Caesarstone’s Organic White sits on the vanity top. We were actually able to find a remnant to fit the oversized vanity, in 3cm thickness, to save some money.


No Tudor master bath would be complete without marble tile, and so that’s what we selected in install in this space! All tile is from Interceramic. THeir Calacatta Gold marble worked perfectly with the warmer tones in the room. We used a longer subway tile in a brick lay in the walk-in shower while laying a chevron mosaic on the entire bathroom floor. In addition, a sculpted marble base mold was installed around the room.


We wanted to incorporate more hints of blue into the bathroom by installing a lightly colored, small print covering on all exposed walls. As a result, we installed Phillip Jeffries, Eiffel – Igloo in Vinyl Iberian Linen.


All of the fittings, such as the tub filler, shower fixtures, and lavatory faucets, are from Watermark’s H-Line collection and finished in Satin Elite Brass. On the other hand, the tub is from Victoria + Albert and the commode is a Toto Neorest.
