In this project, two
separate bath areas were combined into a unified and functional space
with access through his and her dressing rooms off the master bedroom.
The house presented structural and design issues such as floors to be
leveled, beams and other structural elements to navigate around, all
without disturbing the downstairs ceiling.
A major element of the new bath is the vanity designed and built of
antique oak to resemble a found piece of furniture, rather than new
cabinetry. Soapstone slabs were used for the vanity top, shower seat,
and the shelf in the shower. The floors were laid in a tumbled marbled
basket weave pattern. New tongue-and-groove wood paneling provides a
warm and durable wall surface appropriate for the 1930’s vintage home.
