Needham Master Bathroom Remodel Boasts Beauty and Function

Enhancing your master bathroom doesn’t automatically mean enlarging the existing space, but instead re-engineering it.

Good design for a master bathroom remodel is all about maximizing the functionality of the space for the best possible use, especially in Needham homes where space can be limited. That’s exactly what our clients, the LaCascias, envisioned for their bathroom, and they came to Tibma Design/Build knowing we specialize in re-engineering spaces. They also desired a bathroom that was modern in styling, pretty, and easier to keep clean.

“Dan Tibma was so helpful during the design process,” remarked Beth LaCascia. “He visited the showrooms with us as we made our selections, giving us his suggestions but never pushing us to accept his ideas. There were so many decisions to make, we just really appreciated having his expertise. And he was flexible about trying new things.”

The transformation we performed actually made the bathroom slightly smaller, but the flip-side is that we increased the space in their master closet and added a privacy partition for the toilet—aspects that were important to the LaCascias. Plus the bathroom doesn’t feel smaller because we removed a large whirlpool tub that was never used, as well as a tiny shower. The roomy new shower with a frameless shower door includes a rainfall showerhead, hand held showerhead, and massaging body jets. A generous granite shower bench extends from wall to wall. The shower threshold, soap shelves and wall cap all feature White Spring granite, tying the space together beautifully. When our clients step out of the shower they experience the warmth and comfort of radiant floor heat. See some of the benefits of radiant floor heat in Dan’s video featured in Tibma’s Must-Haves for Your Home.

“I never expected we would have radiant floor heat installed in our master bath,” Beth admitted. “But it is so delightful that our children always want to shower in our master bathroom, instead of in their own bathroom!”

A gorgeous vanity with a White Spring granite countertop offers plenty of elbow room—more counter space than the original layout. The rectangular undercounter porcelain sink, Robern medicine cabinet with interior marble, and a lighted makeup mirror make getting ready a breeze. As you enter the bathroom there is now a convenient linen closet on the left that provides storage space for towels, lotions and cremes. Find out ways to increase storage in your home and see how we were able to incorporate some of these ideas into the LaCascia’s home.

“We are really pleased with our master bathroom,” Beth said enthusiastically. “It’s not just functional, it’s so pretty! Everyone in the family wants to use it now. We’re glad we went with Tibma Design/Build. Dan is there for his clients from beginning to end and beyond.”
