Cabinetry Unites 3 Baths and a Powder Room

To update three baths and a powder room P4D designer Anne Newman and the owners chose a natural color scheme with flourishes of texture from natural stone and the light catching properties of porcelain tile the rooms.

The same custom cabinetry design was used in all the rooms.

Part of the dramatic four room update in the Scandinavian style home includes a large bathtub placed by a window in the master bath. Stone mosaic tile with a three-dimensional feel is the focus in one shower and glossy subway tile in the other plus an updated light and bright powder room.

The renovation began with the master bath and the goal of creating a room with a view. The bath was designed with a marble tub deck. The same warm marble was used on the vanity and a recessed niche. A built in hairdryer unit plus jewelry and make-up drawers provide an uncluttered space for the owners.

Custom cherry cabinetry adds the stay-for-a- while ambiance. The existing wood door panel was a guide for cabinet design and a recessed molded panel for framing the tub. The pattern was carried to the vanity area.

Off-white tightly woven Berber carpet was used on the floors. While four pendant lights add a contemporary note to the room.

In the second bath, the tub and shower combo was removed to create a large shower. Leaf patterned stone tile in the shower creates a dramatic, three-dimensional effect.  For a change of mood, the owner can use a remote to change the lighting color in the shower. The floors are limestone and together the design decisions create an organic, summer feel to the room. Though not visible, there is a slope in the shower and a linear drain to direct water flow.

Glossy taupe porcelain tile and new LED lights star in the third, smaller bath. The shiny 12 by 24 wall tiles create a bright, efficient space. A half-glass shower wall was also used to create an open feel.

A quartz counter-top and textured wallpaper take center stage in the dramatic powder room update. An under-mount sink was chosen to create more space in the small room. Natural stone complements the counter. The same cabinet design was used but painted white for use in the small room.

The updates were implemented with no changes to the footprint. (Photos/Gilbertson Photography)
