Functional Focal Point
The owners wanted their bathtub to be the first thing you saw as you entered the room, but the space still had to function. So I pulled the tub forward, making room for a bench in the shower behind it.
The built-in cabinets offer the main storage for this space, but we also added a furniture piece for towels, versus doing another built-in.
Adding towers on either side of the sink created necessary storage and also balanced the clipped ceilings.
Mosaic Tile Niche
The diamond-shaped mosaic in the niche above the bathtub echoes the diamond pattern of the window treatment.
This bathroom was trending pretty traditional in style, so to add a punch of modern design, we chose a contemporary dresser. The overall look is now nicely balanced.
