What makes some people happy is color and you can see this Client loves blue and we are so glad she does! The ‘White Ice’ granite shower counter top/backsplash and surround have a lot of WOW factor, but the painted vanity can hold its own with the gorgeous blue she chose. The ceramic floor tile is a wood look that blends with the granite while not competing. Feeling ‘blue’ never felt so good!
A 1980’s Master bathroom functioned but was looking dated by the linoleum/carpet combination and fluorescent light
soffit, low vanity without much personality and a bathtub that was never used. The light soffit was removed, LED cans added and sconces on the new mirror. The unused tub is gone, replaced with a large walk-in shower using white 2 x 10” subway tiles with a vertical stripe. The Custom vanity with Shaker style doors, undermount sinks and brushed nickel bath fixtures and hardware. All sitting on a wood-look tile that ties all together.
This much used Bathroom got an update while still fitting with the rest of the house, simply by keeping the tile flooring that is throughout. The vanity is elegantly understated with the Fossil Gold Leather finish countertop. The handmade Heath tiles are beautifully visible through the Starphire glass shower enclosure and a new window allows much needed light into what had been a dark bathroom. The final bling of the LED lighted mirror all add up a big WOW!
This bathroom was integrated beautifully by using the same waterfall stone tile backsplash as the design strip in the walk-in shower. Travertine tiles were used on the floor in the wet areas and natural cork which blended nicely with the matched grain vanity. The look and feel is style combined with Zen.
The Guest Bathroom needed a facelift and that’s exactly what it got. The stained vanity and floating linen shelves add warmth to the room while the Crema Marfil honed stone tile and Caliza Capri Limestone give it a clean finish. Both coordinate perfectly with the concrete Sofia floor tiles. Add the single glass shower door, wall mounted faucets with new lighting and Voila! Welcome to the current decade!
A very small bathroom between the Guest Bedroom and the Dining Room offered an interesting challenge. By adding a glass shower surround, white wall tile, new lighting and a floating vanity, the space seems much larger than before.
This Master Bathroom says ‘relax’ in a very fabulous way. Starting with a freestanding contemporary tub and a walk in shower with tremendous visual interest thanks to the Metallica tile with several niches for all things needed and beautiful! The Titan Lagos countertop ties it all together but adding its own personality. The frosted glass door and panel to the water closet allows privacy and light at the same time!
Mixing contemporary with exciting tile colors, sizes and style make for an uber cool Guest bathroom. The fixed glass panel at the walk-in shower keeps water where it belongs yet invites you in. The warm neutral colors of the tile and Titan Lagos countertop along with the rich wood vanity give visual artistry in a superb understated way.
Small spaces take careful planning and this much used Powder room made the most of every inch! The custom vanity with Cesar stone top fit just right and the clean floor tiles give the illusion of a much larger space.
Understated elegance describes this beautiful Master Bathroom! The custom vanity with hidden treasures such as outlets in drawers (think never having to plug in the hairdryer again!) and behind the center cabinet (think electric toothbrush always ready but not visible). The counter top and backsplash are Taj Majal Quartzite is truly fit for royalty. The Durango honed travertine on the floor with under floor heating warm up the room (literally and esthetically) without competing with the dazzling stone counter top.
The soft colors of the Taj Majal Quartzite tub deck and the Durango honed travertine on the walls and shower floor are visible from inside and out of the ‘wet room’ created to give the largest shower possible while keeping a bathtub. It proves you can have it all!
The Frosted Glass door of the water closet gives privacy while allowing light into the space. The uber cool Toto Aquia toilet is both high style and water conservation sensitive.
Honed Crema Calacatta Marble as the tub deck and counter top offer a bit of glamour which is a perfect counterpoint for the quietly elegant hand-made tiles used as the shower and tub surround. The hexagonal Calacatta floor tiles (with underfloor heating) tie the look together. The painted cabinets and vanity with connected dressing table invite one to take their time in this elegant space.
To make this tiny Guests Bathroom feel more spacious, the bathtub was removed and replaced with a walk-in shower. Hand-made white tiles in both square and rectangular helped keep the open feeling while adding a bit of visual interest. The Acanthus decorative accent tiles in the shower and backsplash added a touch of feminine beauty and tied in the color of the small but beautiful vanity. The incorporated counter top and sink in white Caesar Stone simplified the look. As a finishing touch, open glass shelves provide storage without making the space feel smaller. We prove small can be beautiful!
Honed Carrera Marble on the floor and as wainscot with beautifully chosen wallpaper above, make a subtle back drop for found objects that magically change into a vanity and linen cabinet. The Moroccan wall lanterns add to the fantasy feel of this lovely Master Bath.
“D” is for dynamite in this bathroom that was transformed into an up to date and highly functional space with a walk-in shower. The white Ceasarstone counter top and subway tiles in the shower are a crisp backdrop to the accent strip of tiles that are a combination of glass and stone.
A crowded Master Bathroom became an expansive suite by moving a few walls to give everyone more space. By adding double sliding mirrored closet doors helped make the room go from ordinary, to extraordinary! The oversized Carrera Marble floor tiles set on the diagonal with a 4” border and polished slab countertop where exactly what was needed to allow the custom dark stained vanity and custom inset medicine cabinets the ‘Wow” factor!
An unused dark room became a well-used space with a stunning steam shower to help with the aches and pains after working out in the home Pilate’s area just outside the changing room. The light green porcelain wall tiles have the look of glass but without their fragile nature. The Calcutta marble on the shower bench, ceiling and floors add warmth and style.
A charming Guest House Bathroom needed a total make-over! The step down tub was dangerous, the wooden shutters on the inside of the metal window had rot and the 70’s look in the room was dated. The handmade Sonoma tiles are subtly beautiful and the new sconces and mirror brought it right into now! The painted wood vanity with its Carrara marble top are charm personified! The new vinyl window with opaque glass on the bottom gives privacy and light at the same time.
This remodeled Master Bathroom received new Carrara marble tile flooring, new vanity drawer and door faces along with an elegant Shumacher wallpaper. The new antiqued Moroccan mirrors on each side of the single wall sconce brought sophistication to this elegant home.
A fresh look was called for and received with a new taller custom painted wood vanity to accommodate a tall household. A Solartube was installed to add much needed natural light and the “Blizzard” Caesarstone countertop and full height mirror helped create the illusion that the space was actually larger than the original. The tub/shower area was also freshened up since it was replaced with a new Bain Ultra bathtub and surrounded with large porcelain neutral colored tiles installed to the ceiling with a strip of white subway tiles broken up by fiour rows of Walker Zanger “Roku” glass tiles.
The Guest Bathroom is a study in patterns with the floor, shower and wainscot tiles being variations of color and shape. The painted custom wood vanity and Calacatta stone countertop make a soft background for the stars of the show.
New drawer and door faces and some fantastical wallpaper to go with the existing tile countertop were all that was needed to give this Child’s bathroom a brand new look.
The old brass fixtures and pink marble throughout the room are a dim memory in this exquisite Master bathroom. The transformation included installing new “Rosemary” Caesarstone as countertops on custom his and her vanities surrounding a free-standing “Maestro” Van Gogh bathtub which rests on large porcelain tile flooring. The fireplace wasn’t forgotten either as it was dressed with a new “Kota” Caesarstone hearth and Walker Zanger river pattern tile.
Adding a tile wainscot above the existing Saltillo tile floor in the Powder Room and adding fabulous wallpaper gave it the dramatic flair the Client was looking for.
The Guest House bathroom received a bright new look with white subway tiles and green liners along with hexagonal marble tiles in muted tones on the floor and a new double hung window with opaque glass on the lower panes to allow privacy while showering. The thick glass shower door keeps water in while still allowing easy access.
The Master Bathroom got a whole new look with a multi-step plastered Relay finish on the shower walls and behind the new vanity. The Walker Zanger tiles on the floor and Pierre Brun honed Limestone slab on the shower bench and counter top give it a contemporary look while the stained ‘floating’ vanity and framed mirror add a touch of warmth.
The Guest Bathroom received a multi-step plastered Relay wall finish in a soft peachy color. The Walker Zanger floor tiles gave it a contemporary look while the pedestal sink, tub and recessed scrolled medicine cabinet soften the look. Proves that mixing metaphors worked beautifully!
The Master Bathroom was practically perfect already and only needed a few walls of fabulous new wallpaper to change the entire feel of the room.
The upstairs Girl’s Bathroom only needed some feminine yet dramatic wallpaper for a terrific pop of color!
The downstairs Child’s Bathroom kept the original hexagonal tile flooring but added green square glass mosaic tiles to the tub apron and shower walls to make it fun and lively while the white subway tiled wainscot make it carefree. The thick glass panel at the foot of the tub and shower door help make the narrow room seem wider. To bring a little whimsy into the room, some pretty wallpaper added the finishing touch!
The Master Bathroom, while small, feels very open with the new white painted custom vanity and wainscoting to match. The light peachy tones of the marble counter top and hexagonal tile flooring add some textural interest.
The second story addition for a new Master Suite includes a ‘Sanctuary’ bathroom for this busy family with black hexagonal mosaic floor tiles with white decorative accents, handmade Sonoma tiles found around the room and a polished Carrara tub deck adjacent to the large glass enclosed shower. On the opposite wall the recessed medicine cabinets and pedestal sinks help give the illusion of a larger space.
An oversized Family Room with a tiny bathroom was scaled back to create a lovely bathroom with easy shower access for a future walker or wheelchair. The painted custom wood vanity with White Carrara marble top and hexagonal tile flooring complete the look.
The Master Bath in this circa 1922 home became ultra-chic with the addition of a steam shower, vanity with a concrete top and aniline dyed White Oak flooring.
