The purpose of this award-winning project was to create a spa-like retreat for the homeowners to relax and feel pampered in after a long day. In addition, the client needed a storage solution since the existing space had no vanities or linen closets. The original bath, built in the 1920’s, was gutted to the studs and joists in order to update the plumbing and wiring, insulate the exterior walls and ceiling, and create an opening for a new window. The space was widened by two feet to create room for the vanity unit.
The homeowners wanted a separate tub and shower, but even the expanded space did not leave enough room to accomplish that. We were able to give them both in one area by using a frameless door to enclose a portion of the tub/shower area and a knee wall at the far end. The area is both open and functional. Secondly, the client wanted an interesting tile pattern to compliment the deep colors of the vanity. We utilized an iridescent green glass tile, with a coordinating vertical mixed-mesh glass tile to give the illusion of rain in the shower. An onyx mosaic tile in the arch and soffit above the vanity unit ties both areas of the bathroom together.
The new bathroom has revitalized the entire master suite by providing a retreat the homeowners desired. It contains a combination of soft and deep colors in a minimalist design that is modern without feeling contemporary. The addition of separate sinks and ample storage eliminates clutter and provides the homeowners their own individual space. The custom-built vanity top is open underneath. Combined with the large mirror and recessed lighting, the top can double as a make-up area.
Our homeowners wanted a modern, spa-like update for their bath. Our design team selected the materials and created a 3D rendering of the space. The footprint was expanded two feet to allow for the vanity and storage unit. An arched soffit compliments the clean lines of the cabinetry and custom vanity. The two-person tub and shower were combined to save space, while the knee wall and partial glass enclosure provide the openness of separate units. The green glass tile instills a calming effect to the room and the vertical mixed-mesh glass application gives the illusion of rain. Mission Accomplished!
