Small Space, Big Style
This powder room is directly off the kitchen of the house, something that always annoyed the homeowner. After discussing optional layouts that relocated the entry it was determined that to do so would require moving the toilet and that would be more costly than the homeowner’s could justify. So we proposed an idea to we obscure the toilet without shutting the space down and introduced a high pony-wall to the right of the sink. To achieve such a small but efficient vanity and top, I found a scratched dining table at a furniture close-out store and had the top cut into sections creating the top and shelves below. Cutting two holes, one for the vessel and one for the faucet, I was able to fit the area perfectly. Notice in the mirror what looks to be a cabinet? That is a small storage area located behind the door and recessed in to the cavity of the wall. The doors are actually made from the two leaves of the table top! Additional storage can be found in the sidewall shower niches with the accent tile echoed on the main wall for cohesion. At the vanity area, using the tile on the wall in a ribbon effect encourages the eye vertically and creates emphasis at the mirror. The contrast of the two extremes in tile size and texture along with rich and cool palette volley style and elegance with a casualness and earthiness.
