A Tale of Two Baths

This month I am proud to present to you 2 incredibly special Master baths. As you will see each Master Bath offers a quite different look but at the end of the day the 2 projects had very similar requests that were met.

Highland Heights Master Bath

A master bathroom with a highlight wall next to the walk in shower. The wall is a beautiful textured light grey tile to contrast the dark grey textured tile floor. There is a shelf built in to the wall. A potted plant sits on the shelf and a large framed painting hangs above it. There is a narrow space of wall between this and the shower where John has installed a cabinet and drawer.

This project was an exciting one in which I was presented with a broken up space with several small areas such as a closet etc. The space inspired me to open it up and create a spa type feel. The client was accommodating in that they allowed me to use my creative abilities and not only meet their functional needs but to at the same time create interest. One of the many focal points to the bath is the glass divider panel to hide the commode. By using the glass panel instead of a wall, I was able to give a separation while at the same time allowing natural light thru. Located within the panel channel is LED strip lighting which gives a stunning view when lit thru the glass. One can also find the LED lighting within the toe kick of the cabinetry. Opposite the panel is the feature wall to the bath.

I organically extended a shelf from a floating tall medicine cabinet. Notice how I also had a tile feature wall behind it. At the end of the bath, you will find a large walk-in shower. A request from the client was to also have a large shower door so down the road should the need arise to have a walker or assistance to shower getting in would still be comfortable. Some other features to this bath include a make up area, a de-fogging mirror to shower, a large shower bench, a skylight, a hamper and much more.

The right side of the same bathroom. There is a double sink with plenty of cabinet and drawer space underneath. Behind the sink is a fogged-glass partition which hides the commode. Behind that is the large walk-in shower that includes both a fixed and removable shower head and a grab bar. There is a skylight on the ceiling of the shower and the rightmost wall in the shower has a fogged glass window that let natural light into the room. The make up area is a large vanity built in to the corner of the bathroom. There is a large mirror that extends to the ceiling. Underneath the vanity there are stacked drawers but there is also space in the middle where a stool sits.

Gates Mills Master Bath

A master bathroom with a freestanding bathtub and a double sink with a large mirror above them. There are several cabinets to the left of the sinks and drawers underneath. The floors are a white and grey marbled porcelain and the walls are off-white.

I had the honor to do this client’s kitchen several years ago and was so honored when they called me to be a part of not only their Master bath, but also 2 other baths. Each one turned out so special in their own rights. Looking at both projects you will notice a totally different aesthetic appearance, but from a functional standpoint so many similarities. Where the previous bath desired a warmer feel with the use a more natural materials, this Master Bath takes on a more classic feel.

The use of marble looking porcelain tiles so beautifully accent the character of both the client and their home. One of this client’s main desires was a free-standing tub. This gave me the opportunity to have it become one of the focal points of the space. Another feature is the large walk-in shower. The client also desired a large door and area once inside the shower to maneuver about should the need in the future ever arise to need it. One of my favorite parts to this bath is the heated floor. It really makes a difference in these cold winter days to come in and have a toasty warm floor. Some other features to this bath are as follows. LED lighting under the vanities, large chased out drawers under the sinks, a vaulted ceiling, a hamper and floating shelves to allow for an accent area within the space.

Another bathroom in the same house with double sinks. There is a commode to the right and a towel rack on the wall. In the mirror you can see the corner of a walk-in shower with glass doors. The floors are an off-white tile and the walls are painted a similar off-white color. A large walk in shower with glass doors. The shower walls and floor are the same marbled porcelain tiling as the floors of the rest of the bathroom. There is a built in caddy to hold soap. There is also a seated area in the shower with a grab bar.
