1930s Retro style hall bathroom design in Montclair
The bathroom had 3 doors. The toilet and sink were located under a wall of windows. There was no bathtub and the corner shower was small.
Careful space planning resulted in a highly functional and open 84 square foot bathroom. The two doors leading into bedrooms were closed off and the third door leading to the hall was repositioned to allow for a tub on one side and a larger shower on the other. The toilet and sink were relocated away from the windows. One half wall provides privacy for the toilet and the second half wall topped with glass gives the shower more openness. The client wanted a 1930s retro feel to the bathroom which was accomplished with the putty colored 4x4 wall tile, classic marble basketweave patterned floor and traditionally styled white fixtures and polished chrome fittings. A retro and green design touch was reusing the pedestal sink, tub (from another bathroom in the home), towel bar and recessed soap dish – all original to the house. The toilet was replaced with a traditionally styled water conserving model.
