Governors Club BuildEx | Custom Bath Project | Building The Perfect Retirement Home | Chapel Hill, NC


   In true BuildEx fashion, this bathroom remodel is a refreshing new take on an old space that seamlessly blends with the existing house.   


    This 20-year old home needed some rejuvenation, and what better place to shed the old to allow for the new than the master bathroom. The room was expanded to allow for this modern and roomy, yet comfortable and classic, feel. The new bathroom was built around the existing whirlpool tub, cabinets, countertops, and mirrors. In order to make this project transition perfectly with the rest of the home, the experts at BuildEx reused all the doors and custom made the new trim.


    The new fixtures combined with the old, as well as the view outside, give the entire bathroom a modern feel with back-to-nature undertones. The whirlpool tub, inset to the wall and surrounded by massive commercial glass to provide a gorgeous view, was adorned with a custom-made tile border along the front. The gray subway tiles paired with custom-made glass shelves, low-voltage lighting, and beautiful gray-green walls emphasize the bathroom’s openness. The porcelain tiles on the floor in a Carrara Marble finish add to the spaciousness of the room.


    The shower, inarguably the key focal point of the room, is designed with luxury in mind. The frameless specialty glass incorporates a textured dot pattern to obscure the view. The oversized heavy gauge chrome door hardware add to the timeless retro style. There are two Kohler shower controls operating dual shower heads, one being a standard wall-mount and the other mounted on the ceiling to mimic rainfall. The shower is also equipped with a Brazilian Black granite shower seat. 


    The convenience and sleekness of the room is met with incredible eye for detail and natural grace. The cleanness of the design allows the craftmanship of the project to make a statement. The room is light, airy, and pleasant to look at — a lovely at-home spa that fits right in amongst the view of the Governors Club Golf Club fairway.
