A marble shower shows that a popular stone for kitchen counters is also gorgeous in the bathroom.
For this serene white-on-white master bath with rusticated walls, top NY designer Jeffrey Bilhuber designed a stunning freestanding marble shower. Taking advantage of the large space, he created a double glass-enclosed shower that’s like a room within a room while using the painterly quality of calacatta’s natural graining as a large slab on the shower’s accent wall. Calacatta is also cut for the shower curbs while the shower floor is more textured (and less slippery) tile. The lovely calacatta marble is also repeated on the vanity (far right) with white vessel sinks mounted on top. Calacatta comes in several variations but, as one of the Carrara marbles, is especially durable and fashionable.
The oversize, double shower occupies a large amount of floor space in this graceful bathroom and the glass walls give it a barely-there effect. The glass vent over the door swivels to keep steam in or allow it to vent over the door. Among the other luxe features included is the main wall-mounted shower head with separate thermostatic controls. Additionally, there is an overheat rain shower that can be used for rinsing off. Additional shower sprays, below the main controls, provide a luxurious shower experience with multiple water sources.
While this shower is installed in a traditionally style bath, the same idea can go ultra modern or even minimalist. Calacatta marble might be used for a shower that pushes the design in a different direction, or not. I could easily see this wall covered by dramatic contemporary tile.
