These homeowners came to us with an outdated and non functional bathroom space – the tub/shower was a badly installed handicapped tub in a very small bathroom. An adjacent room was so small, they couldn’t even use it for a bedroom, so they asked to take some space from that room to make a walk in shower, and then convert the remaining space to a walk in closet down the line. With a love for the age, history and character of the home, and a sharp eye for detail, the homeowners requested a strictly traditional style for their 1902 home’s new space.
Beveled subway tiles, traditional bordered hexagon tile, chrome and porcelain fixtures, and oak millwork were used in order to create the feel that this bathroom has always been there. A boxed window was created to let more light into the space and sits over the new clawfoot tub. The walk-in shower is decked out with chrome fixtures, and a bench for comfort, and was designed with the intention to age gracefully in place. In the end, the black, white and emerald green color scheme are complemented by the warm oak wood and create a traditional oasis for the homeowners to enjoy for years to come.
