Elegant Traditional Bathroom by Karl F. Utzman

NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Large Bathroom - Third Place.

Graceful arches, custom alder cabinetry in a smoky mesquite stain, and a walk-up sunken tub help create an air of elegance in this luxurious retreat. A grand entry framed in tile travertine wainscot and the open shower with tiled archways and hand-stamped tile accents sets the tone for an elegantly warm space.

The updated design is a far cry from the space as it was. There's little chance that the family's dog will be sleeping through hot summer nights in the jetted tub - like he did in the old tub. No more leaky shower fixtures either. Instead, the roll-in shower's plumbing fixtures now just drip warmth from the glow of their bronzed surfaces. The lighting has also received a new lease on life with recessed lights above the vanity and sconce lighting on the walls next to the mirror. A chandelier with crystal drops is the final touch that truly brings the elegance home.
