Charleston Charmer Luxury Bathroom

 
This master bathroom is located in an historic home in Charleston originally built in 1794. It features original brick and two (now gas) fireplaces, a walk-through shower for two and luxurious amenities including a marble feature wall and heated floors. The space was formerly two bedrooms and an outdated bathroom, with closets covering windows and both fireplaces concealed behind walls. The transformation took many months and was part of a whole-house renovation.

Charleston Charmer Luxury Bathroom

Exposed Brick and two fireplaces add charm to this luxurious master suite in historic Charleston. The space was formerly two bedrooms and a cramped bathroom but now is a generous bathroom featuring ample cabinetry, storage for linens and a shower for two. The tub fill is in the ceiling and the marble floor is heated a dramatic change from the original features of this home, which was built in 1794.

Feature Wall and Wowza Water

A custom tile feature wall with natural Thassos marble and mother of pearl accents is located behind the tub. The valve on the left controls the water... which fills the bathtub from the ceiling, above the free-standing tub. A recessed mirrored niche allows a resting spot for a glass of wine and candles to set the perfect mood.

Dueling Shower Heads

A double shower features multiple niches and a fog-free heated mirror. There is an over-sized rain style shower head and adjustable hand-held sprays mounted on poles, all with their own temperature and volume controls. Frameless glass entry doors are located at both ends of the shower.

Mullion Doors and drawers to spare

A custom cabinet was added to display linens and accessories in the niche to the right of the fireplace. There are two fireplaces, both were concealed by walls prior to the renovation.

Special Storage and Sneaky Mirrors

The custom cabinets allow plenty of "his and hers" storage separated by open shelves for towels. The mirrors are mounted on functional shutters allowing the windows to open. Reflected in the glass you can see the custom tile feature wall located behind the bathtub.

Window Features

Circa 1794, this Historic home South of Broad in Charleston is located downtown. The original windows were fitted with shutters to match the period and style of the home as well as provide privacy. On the bathroom side of the shutters are mirrors, hinged to allow the access to the window and to allow more natural light.

Custom shower details

A custom bench provides a safe place to perch, at the perfect height. The linear drain is located near the back wall and the functional window has a frosted glass panel to protect the window. It's hinged to allow the access to the window.

Polished Nickel Fixtures

Graceful faucets and generous under-mount sinks for both.

The doors replaced a smaller window and open to reveal a "Juliette" balcony and a view of the harbor beyond. The marble floor features a mother of pearl inlay border and has electric radiant heat coils below.
