Yalecrest ResidenceVictorian Bathroom

An original turn-of-the-century Craftsman home had lost it original charm in the kitchen and bathroom, both renovated in the 1980s. The clients desired to restore the original look, while still giving the spaces an updated feel. Both rooms were gutted and new materials, fittings and appliances were installed, creating a strong reference to the history of the home, while still moving the house into the 21st century.

    Yes, I can see that the millwork is custom, but am wondering who manufacturs the recessed medicine cabinet? Or was that custom too?

    The toilet looks kind of like a Kohler Tresham. No idea on the sink.

    Yes, these spaces can be tricky and often feel cramped and dark. This space is aprox 6'x9'.

The designer, Christa Pirl of Christa Pirl Interiors, focused on adding a shower that allowed easy access should the couple have any mobility problems in the future, something their previous tub didn’t do.Wall paint: Mt.

              8. Freshly OpenedDesign takeaway: Consider removing a tub if you want a more open bathroom.Designer Christa Pirl says two main factors drove the design of this Salt Lake City master bathroom. One: making sure her clients could age in place — they wanted a shower that would be easy to use should they have any mobility problems in the future. Two: creating a space that was light and bright. “The best way to accomplish this was to remove the bulky tub and divider wall and add a larger glass shower stall,” Pirl says. Her clients had no interest in keeping a tub since they already had one in another part of the house.

              Two main factors drove the design. One, making sure her clients could age in place — they wanted a shower that would be easy to use should they have any mobility problems in the future. Two, they wanted a space that was light and bright. “The best way to accomplish this was to remove the bulky tub and divider wall and add a larger glass shower stall,” Pirl says. Her clients had no interest in adding a tub since they already had one in another part of the house. Pirl notes that many of her clients are less interested in bathtubs lately and instead focus on luxurious spa-like showers. “The window was existing, but it was very basic with no mullions. It felt very bland and dated,” Pirl says. She kept the window size the same but replaced it with a window that has Craftsman-era mullions. Because there is a lot of beautiful millwork throughout the rest of the home, the designer knew wood wainscoting was the way to go. She placed beadboard at a height that created a high backsplash. “The relationship between the window and the wainscoting was very important, and luckily the height of the window worked perfectly with the wainscot,” she says. Wall paint: Mt. Rainier Gray; wainscoting paint: Alabaster, both Benjamin Moore; toilet: Kohler
