RUSTIC TO FANTASTIC WHEATON MASTER BATH PROJECT
Rustic to Fantastic! The Wheaton homeowners in this week’s Project Spotlight were ready to take their smaller bathroom into the wide-open spaces. Here at J&J, we like to remind our clients that we are experienced at expanding rooms by building out from the existing structure or reworking the existing floor plan. Read on to see the big transformation!
The old bathroom was missing out on a lot of storage and other helpful features. A pedestal sink took up space, and louvered closet doors extended out into the bathroom, blocking the traffic flow. The existing tub/shower area had terrific potential for a luxurious upgrade.
Muted seaside colors and a gentle mix of natural textures make this new space stand out. The homeowners chose a premium construction, furniture-style Bertch vanity cabinet in a subtle green: Pistachio. Open slatted storage underneath is perfect for towels and keeps the overall feel airy.
Atop the vanity, the classic Kohler sink was inset into Alaska White granite. Although the name says “white”, this particular granite pattern is full of textures and tone-on-tone streaks and flecks. We’ll look at how beautifully this choice blends with the other elements.
Soft grey hues are seen here in the silver-toned drawer pulls, Kohler Devonshire Polished Chrome fixtures, and tile choices. Anchoring the room, the plank style flooring has the beauty of weathered wood, with all the durability of porcelain. This particular Italian tile: Vallelunga Tabula, has a soft wash with the appeal of watercolor art. The Cenere color is a perfect match here.
Inside the new shower, walls are lined with Sanibel White Sand Crackle Subway Tile in the 3×9 size. J&J installed a shower niche with shelves and seat – each topped with more of the Alaska White Granite. Glass doors contain the spray and make the room seem much larger. The new Kohler fixtures, also in Polished Chrome, include a hand sprayer.
On the floor, the granite shower threshold is followed by a lightly contrasting grey tile. The glaze pattern of Infinity Cosmos 2×2 Mosaic evokes the feel of natural stone. It’s a choice that matches the beachy vibe of the plank style flooring.
Finally, the homeowners chose to extend the clean, crisp look of the shower’s subway tiles onto the wall. Opposite the vanity area, the same Sanibel White Sand Crackle adds a bit of light-reflecting glow into the room. We love the look of subway tile, and it’s a popular choice for low-maintenance and high style – a terrific combo for bathrooms!
