Bath Design: A Beauty for the Ages

Bath Design

This first-floor powder room was in dire need of remodeling. The homeowner not only needed to update it but wanted to make it user-friendly for an aging parent. The powder room had an entrance off of the hallway and to the adjoining bedroom. This was an ideal set up for handicap access if needed.

The original shower walls were removed and it was opened up with frameless glass. The shower head was replaced with a hand shower that could be used from the bench area if necessary.

This powder room was also all about the beauty of tile and glass. A colorful glass vessel sink was selected to coordinate with the colorful tiles. The mosaic glass tiles framed the mirror and 3 X 3 glass tile inserts were also inset into the 12X 12 slate floor and wall tiles. Whimsical metal tiles framed the four corners of the mirror.

The vanity was wall hung with an indirect lighting strip underneath to give the appearance of floating and to visually help open up the small space.

The end result was an extremely functional yet very colorful and attractive powder room. Through the selection of materials, this room addressed all of the homeowner’s needs.
