There were multiple, tiny, and unusable rooms for his/her vanities, tub, wc, and closets
You were forced to open at least 2-3 doors to find the correct room; the doors would slam into one another when opened
All the tiny rooms felt cramped and were dark
Not enough closet space/ storage
No washer and dryer
Before List of Client Likes:
My clients wanted a more open layout that was both beautiful and functional. Essentially a luxury, modern, bathroom with a good size closet for both hanging clothes and storage.
While they appreciated the ‘mountain look’ they also wanted me to bring in some of the clean lines and contemporary elements that I provided for in their NYC penthouse.
The first thing we did was to tear down all the tiny rooms and centered the staircase. We then divided the new open space into 2 major areas, a closet and the bathroom.
Between the bathroom and the closet, we added a water closet and a room for a washer/dryer combination
We maximized the closet area by allowing the sloped ceilings to dictate the custom built-in layouts. The built-ins are made of distressed, reclaimed, veneers but with clean lines to match the double vanity in the master bath.
We dressed up the space with glass chain link decorative chandeliers and we added directional recessed lights
We added 2 gallery benches in faux-grey ostrich leather with chrome legs on each side of the aisle. The benches rested on top of a black and white cowhide rug over beautiful black walnut floors
The closet leads to new luxury bathroom at the end of the aisle to: a huge walk-in shower with custom designed tiles, a freestanding tub and filler, and a custom floating double vanity in reclaimed wood with recessed lights hidden behind an acid-etched mirror
