The Ensuite Renovation

This ensuite renovation took place in 2018 in the warehouse district of Regina. I wish I could show you a picture of the original bathroom, but I don’t want to burn your eyes. The client wanted to keep the deep soaker tub, add more counter space and a larger custom shower.

The layout largely had to stay as it was, however we were able to move the toilet to make room for a make-up counter and the larger shower.


The Design

The client had a very clear idea of how she wanted her space to look like. On her list of must haves: mother of pearl tile, soapstone counter, and major wow-factor. We’re pretty pleased we were able to accomplish all three objectives.

We had a pretty great space to work with. Since it was a warehouse that was turned into luxury condos, we had a lot of great features like original brick walls, exposed wood ceilings, and high ceiling height. The client picked a deep green for the wall colour, lots of light fixtures, copper plumbing fixtures, and a dark slate flooring to polish off the design.

The herringbone design on the floor was a challenge, but turned out great. There’s a step to the soaker tub in the same slate material as the floor, so we had to make sure the pattern continued perfectly on the top of the step. How do you think we did?

The herringbone design continues on the step of the tub.

Overall, we are pretty jealous of our client’s ensuite renovation! If you’re looking for a luxury ensuite renovation, give us a call or e-mail us.
