When a customer wanted a modern master suite, Ben Tyler Building and Remodeling was on it. The customer, living in Rolling Fields, asked for an improvement to the existing structure, so the team moved walls, making room for a larger master bath and closet.
The new space is light and bright with Calacatta marble, a separate porcelain Mirabelle standing tub, and vanity tied together with a dark floor and a mosaic natural stone mat from Louisville Tile. Fixtures are polished nickel to bring the look together. A larger walk-in closet created more storage space for the Post-War home.

When John Waller showed off his 2016 Homearama creation in Norton Commons, it was a show-stopper. The bathroom, he says, was designed to have a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere, with marble tile that appeared to have river pebbles suspended within the tile. “It stuck out to me,” John, owner of J.P. Waller Design Group, says about picking out the material from Louisville Tile.
John wanted to backlight the tile to make it truly special, but no one in Louisville had a way to do that, so he outsourced to California. The company John hired works in the movie industry on effects and special lighting, so after contacting them, the company
built a panel of LED light strips just for this project. The panel is accessible from the garage, so the homeowner can get to it for maintenance; it’s low voltage, controlled from an app for infinite color settings.
The shower can feel like a club or a spa with five color strips that can be customized for different schemes, and it can also hook up to music. “It’s a showstopper,” says John. A stainless steel bathtub, white Carrerra marble floor and surfaces, and a black vanity pull the look together.
