This Cambridge home was in serious need of upgrades for their two bathrooms! A clean, modern and masculine bath was created for the man of the house, while the wife wanted a more glamorous look.
For the gentleman’s retreat, Barbara gutted the whole bathroom which included an oversized washer and dryer, unappealing linoleum floor, bisque walls, and a salmon color plastic bath and shower insert. A large transom window was created to give maximum light to the space, while a transparent glass door and light colors to open the space up visually. A new custom cabinet with a concealed toe kick heating unit houses a city-sized washer and dryer which were recessed to gain maximum space. Unusual black plumbing fixtures and the grey vanity ground the space.
A modern spa-like bathroom was created for the lady of the house, creating a clean, open, glamorous space. We gutted the 70’s style bathroom which featured ugly linoleum floors and blue plastic drop in bath/shower insert. In the curbless glass shower, an accent wall was covered in recycled glass tile placed vertically to bring the eye up. A lovely crystal chandelier was added to give drama and personality to the space. Lots of hidden storage makes use of the limited space: a floating glass vanity with a large drawer and incorporated night light, a tall medicine cabinet with its own hidden outlet, and a small shelf with compartments for towels. This project won Excellence in Design in the Small Bath Category at the Shine Awards, hosted by Designer Bath, in Beverly, MA July 2016.
