Small Bathroom, Big Design
Kenneth: This was Chris and Jennifer’s cramped master bathroom 6 months ago, get ready to see how we took it from little to luxurious.
Chris: The coolest thing is that the bathroom size while it’s not different is much more open.
Jennifer: It cannot really deliver. The design it’s one thing to see it on paper but to see it come alive has been a wonderful experience.
Kenneth: Now Chris and Jennifer have a master bathroom that looks and feels like one. From the generous bath tub to the elegant vanity and since we had a tiny area to work with we extended the room visually by adding French doors that lead out to a beautiful courtyard.
Jennifer: I cannot even believe that this is the same space. It’s so drastically different and it’s just gorgeous.
Kenneth: What do you think?
Chris: I think it’s great and I think that now she’s going to be able to take the baths that she has wanted to take.
Jennifer: I’m looking for these again.
Kenneth: Before there was just a shower. Now there’s a shower and a bath tub which is exactly what Chris and Jennifer wanted and the striking blue green tile creates a calming atmosphere. We provided Jennifer with a vanity that has both storage and style. Now to mirror which also adds to the illusion of space and it’s great with the artwork we found that pulls in all the colors of the walls that ties within the frame ties in to the nice black granite.
Jennifer: It does. Art really does tug it nicely.
Kenneth: Above the vanity the silver frame mirror and chrome sconces give that classic feel Chris and Jennifer were looking for.
Jennifer: Storage and amenities. The bathtub and storage back here all in this little what is this 7x7 space. It’s amazing, yeah.
Kenneth: And did it all the very calm environment with the materials we selected and the light blues which are very fresh feeling.
The most dramatic feature is the new outdoor courtyard, by borrowing space from the patio area adding French doors in the film we’ve given the illusion of a larger bathroom and created a surprising focal point.
We were able to make use of space that you weren’t really using outside, open this wall where you had a window and to create doors to tie in to the doors to the bedroom tie the same floor material all the way out to these spaces now relate a simple little fountain it’s a beautiful plant material and it’s really fooling the eye to think the space is much bigger than it is.
Jennifer: It does open it up so much.
Kenneth: It opens it up and visually to have this beautiful focal point in here extends the feel of the bathroom. I just love it. I think this is one of the most exciting bathroom challenges I have ever had.
