After two years in their gracious early 1900s condo, these DC homeowners were ready to pull the plug on the jetted, corner tub in the primary bathroom. In its place, the retired couple requested a bigger, more dramatic shower as the focal point in an updated space with clean lines and modern appeal.

The shower’s eye-catching slab of veined quartzite pops against the bright white backdrop of large-format, slip-resistant porcelain tiles that envelop the room. A floor-to-ceiling glass panel and linear drain complete the open shower with ceiling-mounted rain shower head and chrome hand shower.

Two inconspicuous wall niches deliver convenient storage without adding clutter to the streamlined shower design. Touch-latch doors with matching tile fronts open to reveal stainless-lined cubbies for shower supplies.

Opposite the shower, a floating double vanity’s matte glass top flows into integrated gloss sinks. The seamless counter hovers above five spacious drawers with matching gray glass fronts.

Wall-mounted chrome faucets look especially sleek between the elegant glass vanity and a custom backlit mirror that diffuses light above and below. Ultra modern bathroom accessories—towel bars, paper holder, and robe hooks—coordinate in polished chrome.

A partial wall to the right of the vanity creates a private alcove for a modest wall-hung toilet. The discrete picture-hanging rail system allows for art display without damaging the white tile walls.
