The His and Hers bathrooms were ordinary and dated. He never used the tub and wanted a shower instead. She wanted a luxurious soaking tub and more storage. Her bath had a challenging pie- shaped footprint. Situated in a Port Liberte, NJ waterfront condo with concrete floors and ceilings, there was little ability to move plumbing fixtures around.
Needing to have one working bathroom available for the couple during the renovation, we tackled his bathroom first. The tub was removed and a curbless walk-in shower was installed. A compact wall-mount floating vanity and a space saving wall-mount toilet increased the sense of space in this compact 38 square foot bath.
The black and white color scheme and materials energize the small space: black river rock floor throughout, hi-gloss white vanity with white glass integrated countertop/sink, white 4x16 vertical wall tile, horizontal baby strips of black and white marble on the accent wall. The long LED lit mirror also stands in as a night light. Storage is provided by the recessed medicine cabinet to the left of the vanity and recessed niches in the shower. The frameless shower glass is barely visible. A pocket door saves space.
In her 54 square foot bath, additional storage and counter space were created by relocating the sink and adding a full height slim cabinet. Plumbing lines for the sink were routed behind the cabinetry. The partition between the tub and toilet was removed to open up the space. An extra partition at the end of the tub was removed to make room for a longer tub and to create a display niche and a spot to put candles and the bubbly. A ceiling mount shower curtain track was installed for the rare occasion when she wants to shower in her bathroom.
Soothing colors of sand, taupe and white in large format porcelain tile create a calm spa feeling. Crushed glass accent tile brings the bling. The Caesarstone countertop also sparkles with recycled content that includes crushed mirror. The toilet includes a washlet attachment. Frosted pocket door allows light into the adjacent master bedroom.
