Bright Northwest Bathroom
– Corvallis, OR –
As they grew closer to becoming an empty nester, this client wanted to relocate themselves to what was the guest bedroom on the first floor of their home. One of the challenges that stood in the way was the dark, plain hall bathroom. As the only bathroom on the main level, it needed to remain functional for guests but also gain the luxury desired from a master bathroom. We took on the task of re-constructing this space into a serene refuge – without adding any square footage to the existing bathroom.
MORE ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The existing bathroom had a fiberglass shower with a frosted glass door, making the space feel small and dark. We built a tile shower in the same location and used a clear glass door. We were able to bring the space to life and make it feel open and bright by using light-colored materials and glass. The tile from the shower floor continues into the rest of the bathroom, creating and seamless and open look in the bathroom as a whole.
The existing vanity was a good size, but felt bulky and awkward. The new custom vanity varies the counter and cabinet depths to add visual interest, while maintaining the white, light feel the client craved for this space. We also removed the built-ins that were taking up a large chunk of the bathroom space, as they felt like they were too deep and tall to be useful.
The wall detail wraps the whole bathroom up in a grounding way, bringing the light, airy feel back down to earth and creating an aesthetically stunning contrast between the overall white tones of everything else in the bathroom and the soft grey-blue of the wainscoting. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the end results of this bathroom, giving our client the oasis they asked for with the necessary functions of the dual-purpose bathroom.
