Prior to the project, our client’s 1970’s-era bathroom consisted of a cramped shower and rarely used bathtub, limited linen storage, and a single vanity sink set among a mismatch of carpet, tile, and hardwood floors - all of which needed updates. The client wanted a sleek and modern bathroom that would allow to comfortably age in the home.
Designers worked with the client to create a spa-inspired master bath, with an optimized floor-plan designed for living in place. The design also features small details such as a linear drain disguised as a tile seam, seek grab bars and beautiful large format textured tiles.
The new footprint also provided enough square footage to add a water closet behind a discrete, space-saving pocket door, and raise the ceiling above the shower to allow for more headroom and a less cramped feel.
The end result is a master bathroom that is both accessible and a serene place to decompress.
The curbless shower provides a distinctive focal point for this Davis-area master bathroom remodel, its modern vision predicated upon a combination of porcelain tiles selected for their distinctive texture, color, and function.
We employed rift-cut white oak cabinetry finished with satin nickel hardware that complement the shower fixtures for a cohesive look, feel, and timeless appeal.
The glass-enclosed shower is tiled in “Calypso Suite Brick,” a textured porcelain with an undulating pattern that imbues the space with a watery, outdoorsy feel. For the bathroom floor, including the shower, we employed “Woven Reed” whose “grain” perfectly disguises a linear, invisible drain for uninterrupted visual continuity.
Elegant grab bars, built-in seating, and a decorative shower niche – customized for grooming essentials – provide comfort, convenience - and safety while in the bath. Uber-modern satin-nickel finished fixtures from Brizo Litze coordinate perfectly with cabinetry hardware for added modern appeal.
A third porcelain tile, “Reverse Sky” was used for the vanity backsplash and shower niche, harmonizing the bathroom’s cool color palette. The tile’s sublime gradation of natural colors – from sky blues to tawny browns, and creamy whites – pays homage to a sunny seashore.
For this master bathroom, we successfully married purposeful modern design with accessibility considerations, to create a beautiful, functional bathroom space for today – and into the future.
