Long and Narrow guest bath

Long. Narrow. Can’t move any plumbing. These can be dreaded words in the design industry. Or they can be a challenge issued to spur creativity. These challenges were met head on by repurposing the tub to a full shower and adding zen-like materials to transform what was once a jungle-theme bath shared by children to an elegant guest bath that welcomes home grown adults on occasional visits.

Very dark brown stained maple cabinetry feature an intriguing drawer configuration: is it three, four, eight, how many? It’s actually 5 drawers designed to flow with each other both horizontally and vertically; the hardware chosen to help accentuate this unity (the bottom 2/4 drawer fronts is actually one deep drawer). Quartz counters, porcelain sinks, contemporary faucetry and a large custom-framed mirror complete the vanity ensemble!

A dual-flush toilet meet the homeowners’ wish for “green” solutions. Natural stone, pebble tiles and wood satisfy the desire for an earthier, more natural feeling in the room. Frameless glass gives an unencumbered view to take in the natural elements within the shower. Even the shampoo and soap niches reflect the “ying & yang” notions often thought of when envisioning a “zen” atmosphere.

While the footprint remained the same, this bath was converted from “monkey business” to total tranquility.

This is a standard shaker style door and slab front drawer. Just about all of the companies will make this. I think you can eve do this combo at ikea.

Actually Ikea is not even in same hemisphere s this cabinetry. It is custom designed and created. It is not just a standard shaker door is a 3 inch wide stile and rail door in a frameless construction.

If you're open to some slightly different designs, I would suggest you look at the Hudson Valley Blade collection. They have a similar effect but a cleaner design.

as I recall they are top knobs or Atlas. For size, you will need to do the homework and check their website. There is not enough time in the day to answer questions specifically. I do my best but do need to run a business and pay the bills!

Not sure what you mean by the floor was purchased before you had tile. I love the floor and assumed it was tile? Can you clarify? Just curious if it is tile- what it is. Thanks!

Thank you, we recently picked tile from The tile shop :) Epsilon Mocha, could that be it? What is your opinion on the contrast of the grout? Contrast or a brown grout? thanks again

I do not recall name of it but it is not one of those. It could be close though. it has a sheen to it also. I chose to contrast the grout because of the herringbone pattern. This is important or you lose the pattern with matching grout!!

Yes they are my design and creation. Not available unless you live nearby. However, we are working on a line of cabinetry that is prefab and can be purchased and shipped. You can call my shop in detail interiors if you like and get more info. Ask for Cheryl.

Thanks Rhoda! I think you are right about the yin and yang sink. It might be a little shallow for an everyday bathroom though, so I'll have to find something similar but deeper. Thanks for the reply :)

I had the same dilema. I boughts vessel sink from Decolav - 4" above vanity for the vessel look, but has 2" below counter giving you a 6" deep sink.

Look up "glass" in your local yellow pages and bring this picture to them. It's often cheaper than going to a bathroom dealer.

What color grout did you use for your bath floor tiles? It looks like it's a contrast with the tiles and looks really nice. I'm wondering if I should go with a grout that blends with the tiles or something that shows contrast like yours.
