Master Bathrooms $50,000–$100,000 Asian Inspired SARAH KRAUS S&W Kitchens, Longwood, FL Travel often influences design choices, and that was true in this master bath remodel done by Sarah Kraus of S&W Kitchens. The client wanted the bath to have a distinctively Asian flair so it could work as a backdrop for collectibles and furnish- ings gathered from travel and time lived overseas. The downtown Orlando, FL-based mini-pent- house condo posed a number of challenges for the designer. Limits existed on what could be removed or relocated because it was situated on the 22nd floor of a commercial building. The vanity wall was fire rated, so the wall had to be built out to accommodate the recessed Robern medicine cabinets the client requested. The space also needed to be updated to include some Universal Design elements to meet the client's needs. Once walls and a curved soffit over the tub were removed, the room felt more spacious. While a walk-in shower was requested, the limitations of being on the 22nd floor meant including curb at minimal height, with a linear drain at the existing drain location. To make it feel more like a walk-in space, Kraus eliminated the glass door at the entrance of the shower. The shower and pony wall are finished in Contempo Grey & Graphite 12"x24" tiles from Happy Floors, with a shower floor and wall inset in Daltile Black River Pebble and floor in Daltile Saddlebrook Oak. The shower includes wall jets, a rain head and hand-held slide bar for a luxury experience. The Walnut vanity from Omega Cabinetry is finished in Smokey Hills Gray Cabinet Stain, with Asian-inspired cabinet pulls. A Cambria black quartz countertop is paired with chrome faucets from Delta Faucet and rustic sinks from Native Trails. Maxim Asiana 3-light fixtures provide an added Asian-inspired detail.
