Homey Traditional Bathroom by Katheryn W. Cowles, CKD, CBD, CAPS,RBC

NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Budget-Friendly Bath

This first floor safari-themed bathroom was expertly designed removing only one fixture and keeping within a budget of $12,000. What was once a steel tub was replaced with a stone shower, the upper portion tiled with Travertine stone tiles in a creamy clay color. Tumbled and untumbled Noce tiles were used in changing pattern sizes for the shower and bathroom floor to disguise the uneven framing of the walls, and frameless glass sliders were used in place of the previously completely frameless door. To continue the safari theme, the grey and white frame of the mirror above the sink mimics elephant hide, and a dark stained maple vanity cabinet holds marbled granite top. A hammered copper under mount sink with a Link-a-sink drain, paired with oil rubbed fixtures helped keep the tone based in earthy colors. Safari-themed accents like zebra printed storage containers, a wicker chest, and ivory colored elephants really brought the concept together. Previously used mostly as a powder room, this bathroom will now provide a nice escape for the clients.
