Master Bath Under $50,000 – KBDA 2017 Gold Winner
Sandra Diaz-Velasco, Eolo A&I Design, Inc., Miami, FL
Natural light was non-existent in this 1970s condominium master bathroom, and the dark room was a definite minus for the owners of this penthouse in sunny Miami, FL. Opening up the bath space into the master suite to take advantage of the light from its large window and give the clients the open layout they craved was the assignment for Sandra Diaz-Velasco of Eolo A&I Design in Miami. The designer gutted the space to eliminate the challenging, almost labyrinthine layout.
His and hers areas were incorporated on opposite sides of the room, balancing the space with identical designs. The simple, clean areas include an Italcraft Custom Design vanity with large mirror above. Angular pedestals fashioned from Caesarstone Crocodile quartz in white add a sculptural touch as well as textural interest to both areas. Rectangular white Living Wash Basin Bowls from Duravit continue the geometric theme, matched with artistic Loveme wall-mount lav faucets from Aquabrass. FLOS Clessidra Wall Sconces add just the right dazzle to brighten the spaces.
The central shower area is what grabs all of the attention in the room, however. The Italgres Menhir 24″x48″ tile used on the back wall adds color and depth, and a frameless glass enclosure with sliding doors allows it to shine unobstructed. The area also incorporates Italgres Top White Polished tile on the side walls. Hansgrohe’s Raindance e420 air two-jet showerhead and Trioquattro shower faucet are included here.
Within the custom curbless shower area, designed specifically for handicap accessibility, the water closet area sits opposite the shower amenities. A TOTO Maris Wall-hung Decal toilet is paired with Geberit’s in-wall tank system for height accessibility and ease of cleaning below.
The Italgres Palissandro White Opaco flooring is used throughout, preserving the clean, light and open aesthetic and providing an easy transition to the master suite.
