This young couple was looking for something functional yet unique and fun for their 1920’s home. They liked the character of the home but not all the original fixtures in their main floor bath.  With their busy lifestyles,

  • The claw foot tub wasn’t as functional for showering and was hard to get in and out
  • They requested a tile shower to replace it
  • Storage was needed but the size of the room didn’t allow for a traditional vanity

The room needed to be reimagined, but how?

  • The window was removed
  • LED recessed lighting was added to compensate for the loss of light
  • A vent fan was added on a timer to help with moisture removal and circulation
  • The tub was then removed to accommodate space for a custom shower
  • It also allowed room for added linen storage
  • With the standard linen pulled forward for access, shampoo niches were added with access from the shower creating additional hidden storage
  • A custom curvilinear banjo top sink and countertop was created, the curves assisted with the natural flow of the room
  • Bamboo frameless cabinets added a unique but subtle horizontal feature to the room along with the recessed medicine cabinet and veneered vanity and tall linen
  • Bright green glass accent tile (homeowner’s favorite color) added a fun color pallet to the room and livened up the small space.
  • Historic adaptation of the 3×6 glossy subway tile in the shower and in the natural Carrara marble octagon floor tile

The final design adds function, storage and fun!  The tight space flows well and feels larger than physically possible.  In the end, the homeowner couldn’t be more pleased and enjoys showing the space to guests!
