Powder Rooms – KBDA 2017 Bronze Winner
Nar Bustamante, Nar Design Group, Carmichael, CA
Challenged to create a daring powder room for fun, young homeowners without taking too much space away from the other living spaces, Nar Bustamante of Nar Design Group in Carmichael, CA designed this small room with big impact.
After entering via a frosted five-panel glass pocket door, the sink wall draws the eye to the right. Using large-format textured tile with a mirror inset flush with the tile, Bustamante created a lit niche behind the sink for small necessary and/or decorative items. A single thickness Dekton Kadum counter carries the Duravit Vero vessel sink paired with a Brizo Siderna single-handle lav faucet. The counter is under lit to showcase the textured wall, while two concrete side-lights help layer the lighting, warming the space.
The adjacent walls are covered in a metallic peeling rust wall application, which provides an extraordinary wow factor and fun vibe. The wall treatment continues to the Duravit toilet, which is backed with matching large-format textured tile opposite, unifying the room.
