PROJECT SHAKE FRONT GUEST BATH DESIGN & SNEAK PEEK

Project Shake Front is a semi-custom new build where we have been customizing every chance we get. You can see more about the project on my Instagram under the hashtag #projectshakefront.

From the kitchen design (you can see more here, here and here) we moved on to the bathrooms...there are three in the house...a master, kid's and a guest bath that also doubles as a pool bath. I'll start with the guest bath and then follow up later with the other two...each of the 3 baths deserve their own post because all three are just that good! 

Take a look at the concept board I initially presented...you'll see that I included three different cement tiles for the bathroom floor. I had a clear favorite out of the 3 but I wasn't sure which my clients would like best...turns out that we all had the same favorite...keep scrolling to see a sneak peek.

DESIGN CONCEPT BOARD - COLORS, FINISHES & MATERIALS

GUEST BATH FLOOR PLAN

As far as the floor plan went, we made only some minor changes with reducing the length of the shower and then incorporating it as linen storage.  As a side note, it's not ideal to have a cabinet behind a door but in this case the gain of storage was worth the being a little less than perfect.

GUEST BATH CABINET DESIGN OPTIONS

If you've been following along for a bit you've probably noticed that I like providing my clients options and choices...the next three design boards show three different elevations of cabinet designs for both the sink cabinet and the tall linen. Which is your favorite? How about mixing and matching? That's what the clients did...for the sink cabinet the went with Option B and for the linen they choose Option A.

CEMENT FLOOR TILE FINAL SELECTION

The favorite cement tile was this....

And here's a sneak peek of it in the space...I'm telling you, it takes my breath away every time a catch a glimpse of it during my site visits!

And just look how the slatted cabinet shelf allows for the pattern tile to show through.

Once the cement tile was finalized, I swapped out the hexagon tile that was originally shown on the concept board for the shower floor and went with a penny-round like this instead...it creates a much better pairing with the radius design of the patterned tile.

Next was to create high contrast between the white cabinets, shower floor, and the large format subway tile on the shower walls so we went with Benjamin Moore's New Providence Navy...a beautiful mix of navy with a marine blue....it turned out to be the perfect pairing with the cement tile

Thanks for stopping by...there's more to come!
