Modern Master Bathroom Remodel

Project Description

This modern master bathroom remodel designed by Project Guru started with a dated and cramped space completely mismatched with this homeowner’s modern style and luxurious taste. The full divider wall with small openings for the toilet and shower combined with the boxy built-in tub and dim lighting to make the space feel small, dingy and cramped.

The client’s wish list included efficient storage, stylish materials, his tastes decidedly modern and masculine. Our strategy to maximize the feeling of space, improve both natural ambient light and overall lighting included a barrier-free shower access, extensive use of glass partitions, and a light feature wall. We suggested Neolith for the dramatic feature wall material and contrasted that to dark large format flooring porcelain tile. In the shower, the color blocking is continued with a lava stone mosaic, and its color tone actually prolongs the floor space visually to the feature wall.

We used a black and white color palette warmed by dark wood custom cabinetry. Custom cabinets included banks of well-sized drawers finished with stylish modern pulls. Illustrations of main elevations were created for the client to fine tune selections, then used by the building crew in the field.

The tall corner tower hides grooming tools and included an electric outlet, leaving the glass and platinum vessel sinks to shine against the black quartz countertops. The lava stone mosaic used in the shower is repeated in a tall backsplash above the vanity top. Through-mirror tall sconces provide excellent lighting for grooming and make-up.

Brushed nickel finishes and sleek lines repeat with the floor-mounted tub filler and vanity vessel filler faucets as well as the ceiling-mounted rain shower, hand-held shower on slide bar and body jets placed in the shower.

Color and texture blocking create a masculine and sleek finish tailored to the client’s preferences. The Carrera-like Neolith feature wall archives the dramatic style while ensuring the resiliency typical of porcelain surfaces.

Removing the dividing walls also allow natural light to bathe the  space from two directions, featuring the dramatic color and material choices.
