Modern but Welcoming

Modern but welcoming (3)

Design and Thoughts

This bathroom is not huge, but the small changes we made sure made it feel so much bigger. Arching the entry into the master closet created a warm welcoming feeling as soon as you enter. It’s modern, yet cozy and inviting. The colors are subtle and cohesive.

The homeowner wanted to keep a tub because it’s the only bathtub on the first floor even though they rarely use it. The goal was to get a bigger shower. Moving the shower wasn’t an option. Removing the trim and the door from the master closet entry was an opportunity to steal a few inches for the shower making it deeper than before. We also pushed the shower towards the window by using a smaller tub. These two things combined gave the homeowner the bigger shower they were hoping for.

Materials Used

Shiloh Flush Inset Cabinets with Hartford door and drawer fronts, in Clay Rift Cut White Oak.

Cambria Hawksmoore Countertop

Special Features

Our favorite aspects of this build are the arched doorway leading into the master closet, the different tile patterns and colors. We used hex on the walls, hex on the floor in a contrasting color to match the herringbone floor in the bath. Tall, skinny mirrors give the illusion of a larger space and they did toe kick lighting on a motion sensor so they can enter at night without turning on any lights. Another favorite aspect mitered bench in the shower. Seamless and beautiful.
