Colorful, unique bathroom eclectic-bathroom
 

Colorful, unique bathroom

The owners of this Tudor home had undertaken a previous home addition with mixed results. They wanted their master bath remodel to be different. Different it is, and amazingly so, considering that it is a simple facelift of finishes—no change in floor plan--and done on a very minimal budget.

The final design was a collaboration between the owners and contractor and resulted in a finished space as unique as it is fun.

The initial plan for the space centered around two elements: the tile and the countertop. The Vetrazzo counter is terrazzo-style and reflects the ocean colors favored by the homeowners. The tile is a combination of a turquoise blue ceramic and a clear “bubble” tile in a variety of blue colors. The owners had hoped to frame the ceramic tile with the bubble tile but weren’t sure exactly how it would come together.

After talking it over, the final design placed the bubble tile in a flowing pattern around the counter and new tub, ending in what looks like a waterfall and “pool” of tile carefully routered into the new strand bamboo flooring below. The result is one-of-a-kind and a truly fun element in this new bath.

New cabinetry accommodated a contemporary-style sink and faucet in the same location as previous, but also made space for visible storage of towels and other essentials. The third cabinet has drawer space. Improved lighting and new mirrors make the space feel more expansive and bright.

The final result is a moderately priced bathroom that is modern, beautiful and spa-like, and now has the family’s three teenage daughters clambering to take a shower there.

One-of-a-Kind TreatmentsYou can always pull out all the stops and let your tile cascade down the wall and spill onto the floor. This particular installation required routering out a piece of bamboo flooring to create an opening for a pool of bubble tile. Tip: Choose your floor tile colors and textures carefully, plan your pattern ahead of time and be ready to make changes on the fly once your tile setter arrives. Experienced tile setters will help you achieve the look you want and point out the areas where you have a choice to make regarding cuts and the size of grout lines.
