The entire bathroom is open except for an enclosed toilet area. The bathroom was gutted and redesigned with custom-fabricated white Thassos marble sinks, marquetry-style cabinetry and oil-rubbed bronze bath fixtures.

If you're looking to add a traditional, elegant design touch to your bath space, you may want to consider oil-rubbed bronze bathroom fixtures.

Faucets and other hardware fixtures constructed from oil-rubbed bronze can add a classic, understated, colonial-era charm to any bathroom. This style of bathroom fixture also pairs well with Mediterranean bathroom designs, effectively offsetting the deep, rich colors that they often employ.

Design challenges for this bath included incorporating a lots of storage in a relatively small bathroom, removing a drop-ceiling and integrating good lighting without the benefit of a natural light source.

The large tub area was converted into a shower with a bench and the existing shower stall was transformed into a linen closet. It's tiled using three colors of rectangular tiles installed in a pattern to create an interesting focal point.

One of two existing sinks was removed, allowing two large storage towers to be installed in a new space above the vanity. Double sconces on either side of the sink provide ample light for make-up and shaving. Three more recessed lights were installed as well as a moisture-resistant recessed light in the shower.

Oil-rubbed bronze bathroom fixtures can be purchased as antiques—they're widely available from local, national and online retailers—or you can find oil-rubbed bronze replicas at many home improvement and design stores.

Additionally, if you like the look of oil-rubbed bronze but want to stick to a budget, you may want to consider spray-painting existing fixtures with paint that will emulate the look of oil-rubbed bronze. Cans of this type of paint are available in a variety of styles from paint or home improvement retailers.
