Powder Room

A cramped and dated kitchen was completely removed. New custom cabinets, built-in wine storage and shelves came from the same shop. Quartz waterfall counters were installed with all-new flooring, LED light fixtures, plumbing fixtures and appliances. A new sliding pocket door provides access from the dining room to the powder room as well as to the backyard. A new tankless toilet as well as new finishes on floor, walls and ceiling make a small powder room feel larger than it is in real life.

Beautiful color combination. Do you have info on the backsplash tile?

The owner selected those, she said: "The tiles are 2x12 inches and the color is Swiss Coffee. I'm afraid I don't have the brand but they were purchased from Ceramic Tile design in San Francisco."

what is the height of the vanity
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
W. David Seidel, AIA - Architect
99% of all residential countertops are at +36'' above the floor. Raise or lower them if you are significantly shorter or taller than the average person.

Where can I get the vanity? Is there a better picture of the entire unit? - Perfect for my powder room renovation. Can this be done if the pipes come up through the floor near the back wall?

Hi, this vanity was designed by me and built by a custom cabinet shop. The wonderful artisans at W.N.T. will be happy to build one like this for you ... http://www.wntdesign.com

Where are you located and I guess more importantly where is WNT? I am in eastern PA.
Does the unit have a drawer or doors for storage? Thanks so much for your response.

There's a tag on the mirror with a link to a very similar product. The frame is bone inlay.

Wondering your thoughts on iron mountain color for exterior house color with white trimwork? - Would u say this is a blur grey? Thanks for your help!!

W. David Seidel, AIA - Architect
Yes, it's a blue-gray ... before committing to a house color, paint some test patches to confirm it works. Better yet, use a color consultant.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Inlay Makes Rooms a Cut Above
Because of the general lack of accessorizing space in a bathroom, it can be difficult to give that room a personality all its own. Bone inlay turns a necessity — the mirror — into a focal point.
It's true that if your existing bath fixtures consist of a pink sink and lemon yellow tile, you will be hard pressed to create the black and white palette this look calls for. If you have a bit more time and savings to invest in your bathroom makeover, adding wallpaper or a dark paint color to the upper walls and white paneling below (less pricey than retiling) will go far. If you are considering replacing the sink, having a vintage cabinet or table fitted with a simple sink bowl can be a creative solution. While you are at it, remove that medicine cabinet and hang a pretty mirror instead.
