Mid-Century Master Suite Renovation by Keiffer Phillips
▪ Patricia Brown Builders, Inc.
A Peaceful Retreat
At the center of it all, a deep, soothing soaking tub,
spacious shower and glass-partitioned water closet.
Sunlight or moonlight flow down through the skylight and
the light-blade feature bathing the egg-shaped
tub in the soft glow of natural light.
We used a
long trench drain to achieve a curbless shower and to allow
for a seamless installation of large scale tile on the
floor and walls. The travertine tile wraps around the
shower, runs behind the tub and on through the glass
partition into the water closet.
helped us preserve the continuous lines of the tile by
suggesting the use of clear glass in the
floor-to-ceiling enclosure on the shower and water
closet. Drexler's astute understanding of the design
intent led to a suggestion that the enclosures be a
simple as possible and that meant having as little
hardware as possible. The etching on the panel on the
water closet, while providing needed privacy, was held
away 6" from the back wall and 12" from the floor tile
so as to preserve the continuous view of tile flowing
into this compartment.
Clean and simple design
does not happen easily. It involves an understanding of
the design intent and the collective participation of
everyone who is working on the project. The Team at
Drexler Shower Doors showed an enthusiasm in making
this design as good as it could be - from early
onsite visits to final installation.

A stunning back-painted glass backsplash adds the
perfect finishing touch to this modern kitchen in
Decatur Georgia! See what the customer has to say:
"Think much more than
shower doors and bathrooms when you think of Drexler.
Think kitchen. Think glass backsplash. Think gorgeous
while understated. I started out with a different back
splash in mind and called David when I learned it was
no longer available. He suggested a painted glass
backsplash and I knew without seeing a completed
installation (show rooms and friends with glass back
splashes are hard to find), that glass was the right
look for this kitchen that has a lively granite. David
was a dream to work with from start to finish and
measured so accurately that the installation was perfect
and without problems. The process included measurement,
color selection, color test and then installation. The
glass completed the kitchen and gave it a sleek, but
lovely look. So thanks to David and Drexler Shower Door
for completing my kitchen look for me." - Mary

Split-face travertine tile adds warmth and texture to
the walls of this inventive and artful bathroom, winner
of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine's 21st
Annual Bath Contest.
Designer Gunter Sprang
opted for 1/2" Low-Iron ShowerGuard tempered glass for
the stunning Drexler frameless shower enclosure. Notice
how the true colors and hues of the stone are unaltered
by the ultra-clear glass. In addition, we bent the
shower glass to mimic the elaborate curves in the room,
including the undulating patterns in the ceiling and the
inset snaking shelf. Following Joe Drexler's
recommendation, a flat-screen Television originally
intended to sit on the vanity top was cleverly concealed
behind a transparent vanity mirror. As a final touch the
bathroom is bathed in a variety of dreamy lighting,
including sconces, spotlights, can lights, and a
contemporary chandelier, all set on dimmers. The result
is equal parts functional and imaginative!

This master bath renovation is
appointed with traditional detailing including diamond
paned window and wood paneled tub surround. Notice how
the Drexler 3/8'' clear frameless glass shower enclosure
almost disappears, creating a spacious shower that
focuses on the detailed decorative tile motif. The
client chose GEN037 brushed nickel hinges, an SDK100
traditional knob, and u-channel to secure the fixed
panel. The low profile brushed nickel u-channel almost
disappears next to the similarly shaded tile.
