As much as our homeowner loves bold colors and prints, she wisely stuck to neutrals for the ‘permanent’ elements in the remodel of her new town home. On this week’s blog, the owner of Found, creates visual magic as her master bath looks like it doubles in size, while the footprint stays exactly the same!
We see a lot of homes, and a lot of tight spaces. With this one, Raquel and I felt squeezed in as we tried to measure and navigate the master bath in this home.
Let’s start with, there were a lot of doors to a lot of spaces. Sliding doors to a closet, door on left to another closet, cabinet doors to a built- in (they opened through on the other side in the shower/toilet area), door to the shower/toilet room (seen below).
Separate entrance to the tub/shower, with a really bad solution to a lighting challenge.
Despite all the extra ‘storage’ rooms, the shower layout itself was not the best solution for our current way of living.
There was a lot of vanity space. This area mainly needed a new lighting solution.
What is a chic girl who needs access to a lot of beauty products to do?
Remove the wall that led into the shower, build out a spacious walk in shower (there is a tub upstairs) and replace the dated lighting and fixtures.
Our white subway tile has an edge to it to make it less ‘expected’. The black penny rounds on the shower floor provide traction and blend really well with the ceramic wood look floor tile that runs throughout the whole downstairs. Two generous boxes provide a place for all the shampoo, conditioner and soap one could need.
The old furr downs were removed and recessed cans put in place. The cabinet base stayed, but new, Shaker style doors replaced the dated raised panel fronts. Carrara marble and brass hardware make this bath very au courant.
Next week, the last in this series as we take a look at the kitchen and eating areas of the home!
