About the Project
Our client purchased this residence as his first house. In need of some repairs, our client’s top priority was redesigning the bathrooms which were poorly laid out and had undesirable finishes and fixtures. Our client wanted a style which would more reflect his style and reflect his personality and contemporary sense of style.
The main issues with the existing master bathroom were the space was dark, had ugly finishes, and a bad layout. The finishes were all white with 6x6 ceramic wall tiles and a melamine vanity. The shower was a narrow strip squeezed in next to the door. Walking in to the space, nothing made sense. Our solution was to create more light, select new finishes and redesign the layout. We began by demolishing the entire bathroom and reconfiguring the layout. In the shower, we extended the existing window to allow more natural light and give it a centered placement. The end result was an open plan with a large shower and vanity. The shower feature wall was a blue, grey and white rectangular glass mosaic by Artistic Tile. White subway tile covers the flanking shower walls. The bathroom walls were painted a rich stunning blue that pulls out the blue tones in the glass mosaic and gave the bathroom the sophisticated color punch our client desired. A beautiful custom “floating” walnut vanity with a Caesarstone top provides ample storage. A unique, textured charcoal grey porcelain tile grounds the space. When walking into this bathroom after, you would hardly believe it is the same space. The end product was exactly what our client was seeking- a beautiful, functional space that is still masculine.
The guest bathroom was a tight space that provided no storage for guests. The bulky shower enclosure was a real eyesore. Our client hated the boring faux travertine tile covering the walls and floor. Being that the space was so tight, we had limited options for improving the space. We installed a frameless glass shower enclose with a redesigned shape to better use the space. The pedestal sink was switched out for a wall-mount vanity providing storage space. Since the space was so small, we decided to specify the same tile as in the master, but in a different color. In doing so, we would be unifying the spaces. Installing new finishes and fixtures created a space that any guest would enjoy using.
