Tile Makes a Bathroom
I have a very cool bathroom for you to visit. I actually completed this house about 1 year ago today. But only got around to doing photography and a blog post now. Its a sweet little house in Mid-City that received a kitchen and master suite addition in back to increase its footprint considerably. More on the kitchen later. First, let's take a look at the master bathroom.
I think we can all agree that the coolest feature about it is that tiled floating bench that extends from the wet shower area to the underside of the vanity. But we can also agree that the choice of glazed tiles in green and blue and the custom wall mounted vanity cabinet are not too shabby either.
I know it looks effortless but this kind of simplicity is only achieved with very careful planning and coordination between the architect, designer, and builder. The rough sizes and location of the bench depth and height a d the shower niches had to be carefully considered so that the tiles would fit perfectly. And they did. The exact short and long edges of some of the tiles had to be custom ordered with the glaze to get those clean corner details. SO MUCH CONSIDERATION went into this bathroom.
That carefully cut glass is just the coolest. It hugs the bench just so to enclose the shower without messing with the bench integrity. And did you notice the curbless drain?
What I really love about this bathroom is that its quite modern and streamlined, but feels personal and relaxed with the selection of earthy finishes and the owners artwork displayed. Simply really really good. A major headache, and totally worth it.
