This inviting spa bath was created after reconfiguring an existing ‘L’ shaped master bathroom. The look and function of the room did not work for the client and they wanted a change that included a clean modern update to the overall space. Contrasting materials were used for more interest and a soft blue green scheme gives the bathroom a relaxing retreat feel. The dark vanity and floor grounds the light palate and a light quartz counter and the glass and marble backsplash add contrast and texture.
A large custom shower was created, lined with vertical porcelain tile and the same marble and glass inlays as the backsplash. The same tiles were used in different shapes on the shower floor. The shower floor was bordered with larger pieces of the Ming green marble.
The toilet was relocated to a separate water closet to provide more privacy as well as removing the ‘L’ shape of the room. This layout allows for multiple users in the bathroom and also allowed for the addition of a linen tower for extra storage.
A linear glass and marble tile was used for the backsplash. With the combination of glass textures it adds a bit of reflection which works nicely with the flat waterfall affect provided by the contemporary chrome faucet. Quartz was used for the shower seat and thresholds for a clean look. The crisp white walls of the shower allow the pattern of the shower floor to stand out.
The freestanding tub faucet adds a contemporary sculptural element and includes a hand shower for ease of use. It also creates focal point when the space is entered and is more appropriate in scale to the rest of the room. A floating shelf above the tub provides a great spot for candles or artwork and is flanked by contemporary wall sconces.
This spa bathroom won a Silver Award in the CDECA Decorating and Design Award Competition in 2012.
