White on white is often a hard design concept to achieve without feeling overly modern. In a colonial home, bridging the gap was key to a successful renovation that stands the test of time.
We removed all reminders of the previous angles. With a modern-traditional aesthetic, cleaning up the lines and creating linear shapes throughout supported the desired feel for the design, and created a more functional floor area.
A previously dark and dated ensuite bathroom from the 80’s was ready for an aesthetic update, as well as a functional one. A corner tub, enclosed shower stall and his and hers sinks left the floor area feeling cramped and where there wasn’t enough storage in the two small drawer banks – there was an open makeup area that had rarely, if ever, been used.
Light, bright, clean and simple was the directive for the space, with the added challenge of achieving this without being too modern in a colonial home. We paired back the elements using simple shaker style cabinetry in white, large scale marble-look tiles, custom glass shower and linear layout.
These large windows provide so much natural light into this ensuite. Centering the tub between the windows provides a great focal point as you walk in the room.
Reducing the large corner tub to a linear soaker opened up floor area and allowed a much larger custom glass shower to be installed.
Framing a full-height wall beside the toilet keeps it tucked out of view so it doesn’t interfere with the sight lines to the vanity, tub and shower.
The half wall detail in the shower provides just enough privacy between the two spaces while providing support for the floating bench in the shower.
We just love the basket weave details in floor and excited that we could carry this fun tile detail into the backwall of the these two custom niches.
