A young family moved to Houston after spending 10 years in Amsterdam, where they developed a preference for clean lines and sleek European design. A complete gut job and second-story addition was necessary to make this funky but aging 1970s property into their family home.
For the primary bathroom, small-scale plumbing was removed and the space was opened and reworked to include a large steam shower and a free-standing tub. His and hers vanities are custom white wood cabinets with modern chrome fixtures. A generous built-in linen closet is included on the gentleman’s side. The spacious shower has operable transoms to regulate the steam, a large product niche, and a bench made of the same quartz as the countertops. Green glass tile in a straight-set vertical pattern gives a fresh, spa-like appearance to the shower and tub surround. The whole room glows with ample natural light from a window to the garden.
