In addition to a leaking sink, the existing 35 square foot bathroom was tired and dated.
With no possibility to enlarge the 5' x 7' space or reconfigure the layout, the task became to maximize storage and upgrade the style and look. Storage features include: recessed niche in tub/shower, recessed medicine cabinet, wall cabinet above toilet and countertop extended behind faucets into a niche. The color palette of pale blues, greys and white accomplish the goal of a calm serene look. The custom cabinetry and marble mosaic tile provide the "traditional but not sterile or boring" style requested by the client. In any bathroom, but especially a small bath, the tile is critical to the look and feel. The gorgeous mosaic “Whirlwind” floor tile provides visual interest with its swirling pattern and the muted colors keep it from appearing too busy. The white wall tile is a 4x8 size for a more modern take on traditional subway tile. The tub/shower gets dressed up with a framed blue marble and mother-of-pearl quatrefoil mosaic decorative inset and mini blue marble mosaic recessed shower niche. The wall mounted magnifying mirror, vertical grab bar, door hooks, sliding shower glass doors and privacy shutters add functionality.
