A primary bath and a walk-in closet are combined into one beautiful space - all the while staying true to the traditional aesthetic of this 1870's building. White subway tile is used in conjunction with black and white hexagonal mosaic tile to create a stunning bathroom that pays homage to its historic roots. A wall of specialty cabinets is designed to take the place of the walk-in closet that was absorbed into the space. The final result is a stunning combination of form meeting function.
This primary bathroom and walk-in closet had been remodeled by a previous owner, but it was clear that their design goal was to maximize the walk in closet space at a cost of minimizing the bathroom space. As a result the layout was choppy with imposing dark cabinetry making the space feel dark , boxy and claustrophobic - especially for two people.
Our clients came to us with an idea to incorporate the walk-in closet space into the bathroom space and create a beautiful spa-like bathroom that was a joy to be in. They felt that all of their storage needs could be addressed with a wall of specialty cabinetry in the bathroom.
Their wish list items:
Removing the walk-in closet doubled the bathroom area our designers were able to work with and opened up loads of opportunities to creatively use the space. It also allow for natural daylight to flow into the entire room.
Using the entire south wall from floor to ceiling for specialty storage cabinetry easily created more than enough storage space for our clients' needs.
A mix of traditional white tiles along with white cabinetry bring a breath of fresh air into this space. A freestanding soaking tub serves as the centerpiece to this beautiful remodel.
This primary bathroom remodel has transformed an existing space from awkward, dark and claustrophobic to light, airy and functional all the while paying tribute to the original architectural aesthetic of this historic 1870's home.
With a bathroom like this...who needs a walk in closet?
