I’m happy to share a newly completed bathroom project for a long-time client. His new house is a Mid-Century Deckhouse and the primary bathroom got a much needed makeover!
First, an introduction to the house. This house was built in 1968 and is a classic modern mid-century deckhouse style. With deck houses, the ceiling of the lower level is the flooring of the upper level and there’s no attic. So, soffits, cord covers and surface mounted overhead lighting is all needed. We are beginning to look at outside paint colors. This is painted clapboards with brown painted trim and the plan is to go dark charcoal gray in tones which will highlight the windows more. The primary bathroom is marked below – as you can see, the roof over the carport blocks the windows, but it does have good natural light.
And here’s where we started:
My original concept board for this space. My client prefers simple, clean lines and is very much a less is more person. I will say that I did have to push him into the basketweave marble flooring – but how beautiful did this come out!
The overall feeling stayed the same, but the floor and wall tiles and faucet changed a bit. The whole design started with the Duravit floating wall vanity.
We ended up selecting a different floor tile – one that had less contrast than the first. Below is the mockup to show my client how the tile would look with light, medium and dark colored grout. We ended up with the darker grout which blended in better with the tile.
As you can see – it’s a very small primary bathroom – but one that is now loaded with style! The floor tile is the same in the shower. We considered curbless for a more streamlined look, but there wasn’t room in the floor joists to inset the shower pan.
In another post I’ll be sharing the wine cabinet we designed for this same client. It’s spectacular if I do say so myself!
