Upon moving to a new home, this couple requested our help in revamping their guest bathrooms to take better advantage of the space allotted.
The first task was to convert two small guest baths into one large luxurious space including a Japanese soaking tub and custom glass shower with rainfall spout. Two floating vanities in a walnut finish topped with composite countertops and integrated sinks flank each wall. A mix of travertine floor tiles with glossy cream wainscotting tiles creates a warm and inviting feel in this bathroom. Due to the pitched walls, Barbara worked with both an industrial designer and mirror manufacturer to design special clips to mount the vanity mirrors, creating a unique and modern solution in a challenging space. Glass fronted shelving built into the eaves offers extra storage for towels and accessories. Light fixtures in an oil-rubbed bronze finish complete the look of this dramatic space.
For the second bath, Barbara chose an industrial vibe using cool shades of blue and gray along with warm wood tones. The rustic “wood look” floor tiles anchor the color scheme and elongate the room. Echoing the same color as the glossy tiles on the shower walls, a beautiful blue glass vanity floats in the space. “Sugar cube” mosaic tiles protect the wall above the shower as well as add accent to the vanity backsplash and shower niche. Fixtures are polished chrome, echoing the brackets on the industrial-feel mirror over the vanity. Modern sconces offer task lighting in addition to a built-in night light option. A seeded glass pendant in the window seat area offers overhead lighting but doesn’t block the view through the tall window
