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.
