Powder Room

Cozy Contemporary Bathroom by Sol Quintana Wagoner

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Best Bath

Co-Designer: John Kavan & Vanessa Tejera

Catering to the clients' affinity for Asian and contemporary themes in an alluring atmosphere, this powder room makes a memorable, dramatic impression. The original powder room dwelled in colors, materials and fixtures that were run-of-the-mill. A sliding window above the toilet was covered with shutters, creating extra clutter, a swing door made the space feel even smaller, and the room had very little storage. While the new design called for a free-standing vanity, an exhaust vent coming up through the vanity could not be moved. Incorporating contemporary and Asian-inspired elements, improving functionality, making the powder room seem more spacious without adding square footage, and bringing in more light and texture to the room were the top priorities of the clients, a couple that frequently entertained guests from their professional circle. In order to address these concerns, this space underwent a major renovation that conveyed a glittering sense of drama in a small area, featuring a simple, elegant black pocket door with Shoji-style panels. An ochre wall, designed with a strip of flowing niches, displays treasured collectibles, concealing the venting system and allowing the addition of a free-standing vanity.
