Designer Paige Maurer was tasked with updating this bath to fit with a whole-home remodel that was being done to align with the clients’ taste. The layout needed to be reworked to make it more functional and feel more open, hide the toilet area for privacy and aesthetics, incorporate a desired walk-in shower for aging-in-place and include unique, interesting features. To create a balance between the preferred aesthetics of the husband and wife, Maurer mixed soft, feminine finishes with stronger, more masculine details.
A custom-built/recessed linen cabinet made from walnut is one of the distinctive pieces in the space, with clear glass panels that showcase items being displayed. The vanity on the opposite wall, from the Inovae Collection by Plato Woodwork, is also walnut in the same Mocha Lite Stain. The hardware on both pieces is the Nouveau Square Bar Pull from Top Knobs in the Honey Bronze finish. Topping the vanity and on the backsplash is Torano quartz by DIFINITI Quartz Countertops. The Kohler Ladena undermount sink in white works with the American Standard polished chrome faucet.
Beneath a bank of windows, a round soaking tub from Signature Hardware is paired with a tub faucet from American Standard’s Contemporary Collection in polished chrome. The shower faucet is from the same collection, and is surrounded by honed Calacutta porcelain 12″x24″ tiles from Vallelunga & Co., with Marazzi Persuade white brick tiles covering the shower floor. The latter is also used on the floor in 12″x24″ size.
