Ugly Duckling Makes Swan

Ugly Duckling Makes Swan

If ever there was an ugly duckling, this master bath was it.

“While the master bedroom was spacious, the bath was anything but with its 30” shower, ugly cabinetry and angles everywhere.  To become a beautiful swan, a bath with enlarged shower open to natural light and classic design materials that reflect the homeowners’ Parisian leanings was conceived.  After all, some fairy tales do have a happy ending.”

Check out the tiny shower reflected in the vanity mirror – hardly room enough to stand let alone shower.  Light oak cabinets reminiscent of every builder’s 1980 kitchen lack style and the mystery doors are at odds with a small walk-in closet and commode.

By eliminating the angled walk-in closet and relocating the commode, valuable space was freed to make an enlarged shower with telescoped walls resulting in room for toiletries hidden from view, a bench seat, and a more gracious opening into the bath from the bedroom.

Also key was the decision for a single vanity thereby allowing for two small closets for linens and clothing.  A lovely palette of white, black, and yellow keep things airy and refined.

Charming details in the wainscot, crown molding, and six-panel doors as well as cabinet hardware, Laurent door style and styled vanity feet continue the theme.

Custom glass shower walls permit the bather to bask in natural light and feel less closed in; and beautiful carrera marble with black detailing are the perfect foil to the polished nickel fixtures in this luxurious master bath.
