From Conception to Installation
This is another one of those spaces that from conception to installation hasn't changed very much. Full confession! I've been stockpiling photos during the last few months as I've waited for my new website and blog to launch, so I already know the beginning to nearly the end,..I'm pretty sure if you are liking what you see here, you're going to love seeing what's to come!
MASTER BATH FLOOR PLAN
Notice my dashed center lines and how I've divided the sink wall in such a way that it balnces off the toilet and shower wall perfectly. This isn't always possible but when it is, it's pure design music!!
SINK WALL ELEVATION
I included a tall cabinet to break up the long length of the sink wall...and to provide additional storage, and added interest. It's these sorts of things that make a project go from so-so to aaahhhh!!!
TOILET ROOM & SHOWER WALL ELEVATION
For this elevation I provided the clients a couple of cabinet design choices for the space in-between the toilet room, and doorless shower. In both situations, I wanted to keep the cabinets low since the space isn't very big. I also wanted to make sure that the mirrors on the other side had something beautiful to reflect.
This is Option A...
And this is Option B...
Even though Option B doesn't provide as much storage as Option A, my clients decided B would be more practical for them in that it would provide a place to sit while helping a little one dry off, brush their teeth, or comb their hair.
DESIGN PHASE TO Dry Wall
Looking into the bath from the master bathroom...
Same view, just closer up...
Linen and sink wall...
And as usual, I can't end this post without first giving you a sneak peak of what's to come... as well as some design tips.
THE TAKE AWAY
- In tight bathroom spaces, it's best to keep things low, so as not to crowd the space, similar to what I did with the low bench on the opposite wall as the sink.
- Always consider what a mirror will reflect once it's in place. In this situation the art work will be enjoyed from both sides of the room...thanks to the refelction of the mirror.
- Break up a long sink wall by incorprating a tall cabinet either in the end, or in the middle like we did here. It will provide both additional storage and add interest.
- When designing a space, pay attention to centerlines...this is one of those things that will take your project from average to being well-designed.
