Freestanding tub: Owners bathroom renovation

This bathroom was in need of a complete makeover. Like many homes built in its era, the centerpiece of the space was a very large and now-outdated Jacuzzi tub.

Bathroom renovation goals and challenges

  • We wanted to replace the outdated pieces of this bathroom to create a functional and fresh space for the homeowners.
  • We wanted to create better traffic flow in this small bathroom.

Renovation solutions

  • The answer was a complete bathroom remodel that replaced the outdated components and improved the room’s flow and feel.
  • We began this Waxhaw bathroom remodeling project by removing the existing Jacuzzi bathtub, which was completely obsolete. Since the owner enjoyed taking baths, we replaced it with a graciously sized, modern, freestanding soaking tub.
  • We built a new, larger walk-in shower that was far more functional than the existing version.
  • A new vanity cabinet, countertop, and sink refreshed the space.
  • Updated faucets gave the room a modern feel.
  • The dated, dark tile was replaced with contemporary porcelain floor tile, which made the room feel more open.
  • Modern lighting replaced decades-old fixtures, bringing more light into the space.
  • We installed a heat lamp that now makes exiting the shower much more comfortable during Waxhaw winters.
  • The owners now have a refreshed bathroom that isn’t focused on an outdated and unused Jacuzzi tub.
