The 1990s construction was cold in style and temperature. Designer Megan Meyers
took the room all the way down to the studs. "Unfortunately, in the 1990s a lot of building wasn't as concerned with tight envelopes like we are today, so it was very inefficient," she says. In addition, before she could get started on the fun stuff, the room needed improved insulation, as it is located above the garage.
The cold tile floors used to make the homeowners dread going into the bathroom barefoot. Now the floors have radiant heat and a new baseboard heating system. Meyers also replaced the drafty window with a new efficient one from Anderson Windows.
The floors look like marble but are porcelain tile. She chose quartz in Arabescato Verde for the shower
threshold to avoid tough-to-clean grout lines and because the subtle green in the veining picks up on the greens in the stained glass tiles.
