A Master Bath Miracle: From Dated to Dazzling
Transformations don’t get much better than this. Witness a master bath’s radical change.
An outdated bath held Ludy Strother captive for too long. It took frequent escapes to open her eyes to beautiful possibilities.
“I visited the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, North Carolina; The Palace Hotel in San Francisco; and the Ballantyne Resort
in Charlotte, North Carolina,” Ludy says. “I realized that my bath was dark and dated.” Not to mention blue. With the help
of designer Carolyn Jordan, Ludy now has the master bath of her dreams.
Before: A too-small mirror and misplaced light fixtures topped off a ho-hum vanity. The lights, hung vertically, resembled traffic signals. After: This room’s layout remains unchanged to keep plumbing costs down. The new vanity proves the required plumbing parts don’t have to ruin the desired look. Open cubbies below the two bowl sinks have removable panels in the back to allow access to pipes. The new mirror above the vanity is cut to accommodate two sconces and faucets. A large cabinet to the right of the vanity adds storage.
