In a bathroom designed for the parents of three young daughters, designer Shelly Amoroso took care to make all the details as relaxing as possible. Her goal, says Amoroso, was a space that was both beautiful and practical. “In addition to a deep tub deck with room for plenty of candles, we also included storage space for the kids’ toys, towels, reading materials and even photos of the girls—to remind mom and dad of how lucky they are.”
A new rectangular soaking tub creates a Zen-like master bath, perfect for unwinding at the end of a long day surrounded by calm, neutral colors and accents inspired by nature. The tall linen cabinet adds additional storage while breaking up the counter space and providing strategically planned electrical access to keep the counter free of clutter.
In addition to the cabinets and drawers in the U-shaped double vanity, the master bathroom also offers vertical storage above the vanity with a tall column upper cabinet for easy access to items like extra rolls of toilet tissue and personal care products.
Storage is a huge concern in any bathroom, but this traditional bathroom has plenty of space for all of a family's things. Floor to ceiling cabinets give the family plenty of space to store linens, while the vanity allows plenty of space for the family's toiletries. All of this storage space gives the family a way to keep everything organized and the countertops neat.
An exceptionally relaxing bathtub and additional storage were requests of the client, so designer Brooke Arciniega configured a space that allows the client and her husband to store additional clothes and a perfect place to set a wine glass.
This new master bathroom was located where the old second floor kitchen was previously. Double vanities, bright wall sconces, and large mirrors create plenty of space for the family. Storage was created under the vanities, and near the toilet opposite the shower. Textured gray ceramic tiles and clean white walls create a bright and modern atmosphere. A wall mounted towel warmer adds convenience and comfort.
As seen on HGTV's Love It Or List It, Too, Designer Jillian Harris brought order to a disorderly bathroom by consolidating some much needed space. Jillian removed the stand-up shower and replaced it with a double vanity and unified the plumbing to one wall, leaving room for a sleek glass top table. Jillian painted the bathroom Gray Mare and she tiled the bathtub with 2x8 white horizontal subway tile and the floor with a mosaic of grey scale circular tiles.
In the upstairs bathroom, designers made a nod to the homeowners' son's love of music with the retro photograph of a cassette tape. They added even more personality to the space with modern fixtures and modular storage, creating the ultimate, eclectic bathroom space.
For the bathroom of a longtime customer-turned-friend, designer Katie Gagnon created a unique storage unit for the space between a pair of pedestal sinks. “This was a long-term project, and we spent a lot of time curating the perfect pieces for her ever-evolving space,” says Gagnon. “This storage cabinet was one we had custom made by an artisan we work with. The door is a vintage salvaged piece that had the original paint sanded off and we added an iron cremone bolt for some contrast and visual interest.”
In many designer bathrooms, storage is an issue, but here, there is plenty of it. Two long vanities line opposite sides of the room and floor to ceiling cabinets give the homeowners plenty of space to store their things.
In a guest bathroom, designer Alisa Hoffman took a creative approach to the design of the vanity. “By ‘floating’ the vanity cabinet we were able to open the space and light it from below which gives the illusion of expanding the room as the floor tile continues underneath the vanity, all the way to the wall,” says Hoffman. She designed the cabinetry with open storage for extra towels, baskets for toilet tissue and a space to sit down. “It’s reminiscent of being in a spa, an experience from which everyone leaves refreshed,” she says.
“Innovative storage solutions were key to making the most of every room in this waterfront cottage,” says designer Elizabeth Swartz. “This included the use of some wonderful hardware, such as this Hafele pull-out unit in the master bath to organize even the smallest of spaces efficiently.”
