Glass storage jars let toiletries with interesting shapes or textures become part of the decor. In a space-saving move that doesn't scrimp on luxury, the soaking tub fits neatly inside the walk-in shower area.
This guest bathroom created a big concern due to the small space HGTV Star contestant Crisermy Mercado had to work with. Using a narrow glass and stainless steel vanity not only provides more space to enter the shower, but it also makes the space feel larger by not having a bulky furniture piece blocking the pathway.
Carter Design limited the material in this guest bathroom to one, with gray stone on the floor and walls. The tiles that were initially installed created a dizzying grid which was overwhelming to the small space.
The desired concept throughout this design studio is minimalist modern with touches of industrial. Custom chain mesh pendants add interest to the powder room and complement the basalt freestanding sink. A gray and neutral palette helps accentuate the pieces in the space.
The contemporary color scheme and accents are well-suited for a boys' or guest bath. The white vanity and stylized chrome hardware play nicely against the soft gray walls and bolder stripe that surround the room. The industrial designed swing arm lamps and beveled mirror make a powerful statement in this design.
Like the master bedroom, the master bath is designed to provide a virtual outdoor experience, creating the impression that the space is open to the outside. The seamless glass windows that form the outer walls are made of Starfire glass, a highly specialized glass that is actually clearer than ordinary glass and typically reserved for such purposes as building jewelry display cases and high-end aquariums. The cost of upgrading from clear glass to Starfire glass was more than $1 million. The master bath's freestanding tub cost more than $20,000, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
