When renovating a bath in a historic home, designer Mark Williams had to work within a small footprint. “Baths were not as luxuriously proportioned back then so we had to get creative with storage solutions,” he says. “We built in a large piece—designed to look like an armoire—but is actually linen storage above, and a hamper below. The antiqued mirror insets in the upper cabinet doors make the whole space feel larger.”
As seen on Fixer Upper, this elegant master bathroom has been transformed into a stylish oasis. Bathed in a neutral color palette, this space is bright and inviting thanks to the large window and glass paneled door that leads from this space outside onto a private balcony for the couple to enjoy. To help warm the space, stylish accents, such as floating sinks, modern shelves and a rustic mirror were added, creating the perfect, updated blend of stylish and relaxing.
For the bathroom of a new home in Westchester County, NY, architect Daniel Contelmo created an elegant vanity that is as rich in storage as it is in style. “It’s packed with various storage options, equally divided for the couple who shares the bath,” says Contelmo. Among the amenities are a built-in hamper, a linen closet, plenty of cabinets and drawers, lighted custom-framed mirrors and a central shelving area that offers display space and visually breaks the long limestone counter.
