Relaxing Contemporary Bathroom by Laura Stein

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Large Bath - First Place

Co-Designer: Natalie Graziano

This dated condominium bathroom underwent a major renovation, with the designers working within the constraints of using the original plumbing and footprint of the space. In order to meet the challenges of providing a large storage area in a relatively small bathroom, bringing in good lighting in lieu of natural light, and catering to tall clients when the bathroom's dropped ceiling cast a closed-in and claustrophobic feeling, the designer implemented a series of creative solutions. The large tub area was converted into a shower with a bench, and the existing shower stall was transformed into a linen closet. One of the two existing sinks was removed, allowing two large storage towers to be installed in this new space above the vanity. Double sconces on either side of the sink provide ample light for make-up and shaving. Three additional recessed lights were installed in the main part of the room, and a moisture-resistant recessed light was installed in the shower. The ductwork, relocated to the perimeter of the room, allows the ceilings to be raised. The detailed striped tile work in the shower sports three different types of tiles, expertly installed to create an interesting and dramatic focal point.
