A leak in the walls of. this master bathroom is what go the ball rolling on this dramatic transformation. Our client had been daydreaming of having a bawler bachelor bathroom for awhile and it was finally happening.
The Bland Before
Here is the space we started with.
The first step in the design process is always nailing down the design vision and concept, as well as discussing the list of needs and wishes. Our bachelor is originally from Las Vegas, so he had inspiration photos that mixed high roller with organic. Based on the inspiration he presented us with, our design concept was a masculine, clean, sexy, organic space.
Our client list of wants was:
- clean, transitional lines
- light tones and textures
- oval freestanding tub
- vessel sinks
- rain shower heads
- and number one -OPEN SHOWER CONCEPT
The open shower concept was a new one for us, but we were definitely up for the challenge! We had a three main challenges on this project. First, he had remodeled his master closet a couple of years earlier, so we needed to make sure that the bathroom flowed seamlessly with the closet style.
Another challenge was figuring what kind of flooring to use to tie in the existing wood floors in the master and open concept shower. We didn’t want to choppy space of busy floors from one space to another, but we also wanted the shower to stand out rather than blend in. Last, how to create an open concept shower and protect the other bathroom fixtures, ie: cabinets, from getting ruined with water damage.
Creating the Master Bathroom Design
We always start our selection process with the one element that we feel drives the feel and color palette of the space. In this case, it was the countertops. With the concept being masculine, clean, sexy, and organic, we felt the countertops had to be a natural stone to bring in the organic. However, with our color scheme of grays, light woods, and white, finding a gray granite that wasn’t boring or busy was going to be a challenge. We were beyond thrilled when we came across this stunning slab that blended tones of warm and cool grays beautifully.
From there, we found the ideal solution for our floors at The Tile Shop. We found a wood tile whose tones flowed seamlessly in from the master bedroom. It was also the created the perfect warm foundation the bathroom needed to contrast with the cooler, more contemporary floor to ceiling white tiles on the bathroom “water wall”.
The Hardware had to be sexy and contemporary. The Litze Collection from Brizo had all the pieces we needed from the wall mounted faucets to the cool shower head. The sleek design with it subtle texture details makes it strong enough to make a statement but soft enough to be sexy.
One of my favorite features are the custom cabinets we designed for this master bathroom. We wanted cantilevered, two tone vanities and they needed to be protected from the water spray from the open shower. Our solution – water fall countertops that stopped at the edge of the main floating cabinets stained a custom gray tone. Underneath, we painted the floating storage shelf with high gloss outdoor paint.
Are you ready for the BAM?! A dramatic new bachelor master bathroom that is sexy and welcoming, clean and warm.
