Show House Features Three Bathroom Design Ideas
RENU Atlanta highlights frameless shower doors in three bathroom designs for the Art and Design Show House in Marietta September 15-29. Owner Rob DuPree shares design details and what visitors can expect when they tour the space.
Why feature multiple bathroom designs for the show house?
I’m all about progression and detail, so I formed an idea for three distinct offerings. Each bath features a frameless shower door and reflects different budgets: simplicity in the guest room off the garage, interesting-but-affordable details on the terrace level and all-out luxury in the master suite. My goal was to give anyone that walked through the show home a fresh new look on the possibilities with frameless shower doors.”
What distinguishes each space from the others?
The first space, the main-level guest bathroom off the garage, includes a standard frameless shower door. The features of this room are more neutral to exemplify the most common frameless shower door on the market—trends that have been available for years. The hardware lacks variety and the glass is clear, which yields a slight green tint due to its iron content.
“The second bathroom is located on the terrace level—the perfect setting for a shower as unique as our clientele, without blowing their budgets. Floor & Décor provided an intricate tile design. With such a large door opening, I chose to use two sections of glass. The bottom portion was similar in size to a standard shower door, but I added a revolving transom into the small space above. The homeowner can decide whether they’d like to create a steam shower effect (transom closed) or take a regular shower (transom open).
“Lastly, I wanted to spare no expense to bring about a different look for the master bathroom. Still simple in its configuration, RENU Atlanta selected an ultra-clear glass that preserves the natural color of the tile by reducing the green tint of the glass. The glass has been etched to create privacy, which is rarely seen in this market.”
How do hinge styles and door pulls contribute to the look of each space?
"The hardware in the guest bath is polished chrome with standard hinges and a simple door pull. The terrace level features more intricate hardware: concealed hinges and a Victorian handle reflects the elegant shape of the Moen plumbing fixtures chosen by PDI, another show house sponsor. This has always been the easiest and least expensive way to set your shower apart from your neighbor’s home. In the master bath, a ladder pull, much longer than other pulls you see offered, has been used to accentuate the oil-rubbed bronze finish in the room.”
Be sure to tour the show house in person September 15-29 to see the details of these unique bathroom designs. There’s a look for every budget and style! For more information visit www.artanddesignshowhouse.com.
