Remodel: The Bathroom

Residence: The Paulson Residence

What it was before: A chopped up bathroom with little closet space

When Stuart and Kim Paulson first started toying with the idea of remodeling their master bathroom, they just wanted to increase the closet space and enclose the toilet, but as the remodel got going, it soon turned into a whole demolition project. The original shower was torn out, taller cabinets were brought in, closets were demolished and the ceiling was painted with a custom sky motif. Working with Gina McMurtrey of Gina McMurtrey Interiors LLC to create their dream master bathroom, the homeowners were able to turn their outdated and cramped bathroom into a luxurious, spa-like escape. McMurtrey knocked out the back wall to open into the unused second bedroom, which is now an oversized walk-in closet. Next, she installed a zero-entry glass shower covered with mosaic glass tiles. Floor warmers were brought in, and soffit lighting was swapped for brighter lights mounted to the mirror. With much more room and a truly luxurious shower, that outdated bathroom is long gone.—Ettie Berneking

The Major Change

No. 1 Tore out the old shower insert and installed an oversized seamless glass shower. Not only does the shower look great, it also makes the space seem larger.
