Luxurious features bring the 'wow' factor to a guest bathroom
Glamour in a Small Space
TODD JACKSON - Special to the U-T
This small bathroom dazzles with a wealth of lush materials and a glamour-infused Japanese influence. Part of a whole home remodel for a young couple who entertain frequently and lavishly, this bathroom is used by guests during special occasions. The homeowners wanted to impress and delight their guests with a memorable room accentuating style, drama and luxury.
The original bathroom was a typical powder room, with no shower, outdated fixtures and little attention to style. Working with the existing space, the new design dramatically enhances the style and function of the room. A shower was added to accommodate guests using the outdoor pool. The shower has Kohler Stance Collection fixtures with strong architectural lines. The handheld shower offers a striking design statement to this modern bathroom.
Contributing to the "Wow" factor of the bathroom is the unique curved shower enclosure by Vigo Industries with its specially designed rollers that make closing the door smooth and effortless.
We brought in gray metallic wallpaper, charcoal gray porcelain tile accented with chrome Schluter strips, and Schonbek lighting in Cinnabar Red to create an alluring environment of illumination, reflection and color. An exquisite crystal Vitraform vessel sink sits atop a La Cava pedestal in high gloss black laminate and echoes the cylindrical form of the mirror above. Triple-cut marble, created from a remnant polished to high sheen, brings additional reflection to the space and creates an alluring interplay of light and shadow. Recessed lighting, similar to lighting used in jewelry stores to add sparkle to gems, spotlights the crystal sink and the wall of tile.
This small contemporary bathroom now radiates luxury with meticulous attention to detail in design, scale and materials.
