    Christine Pittel: That rectangular tub is so chic. But no curves — is it comfortable?

    Amanda Reilly: Absolutely. You can lean back, and it feels really good because the water comes almost up to your neck — it’s like a Japanese soaking tub.

    Did you think twice about putting such a big tub in such a small space?

    Actually, it’s the standard size. But it looks much bigger because it’s so tall — 24¼ inches as opposed to the normal 14 to 18. And the tub stands on wenge feet and doesn’t touch the walls, so it seems to float.

    Still, you didn’t have all that much space in here. How come the room doesn’t feel tight?

    Because we raised the ceiling from seven-and-a- half to nine feet to capture more space. That was the big move. Then I came up with the idea of building out the wall and doing the cove lighting.

    Testimonials

    I can’t say enough good things about Shannon.  Attentive, proactive, asked questions to understand our needs/wants. She always made time for us, she was patient when we were picky. We never felt pressured and always felts like she had our best interests in mind. There were many times that my husband and I wondered about how she could be so generous with her time and so accessible. She was always professional and organized and knew exactly what features we were looking for. Thank you, thank you,…
