Designer Todd Davis worked two smart space-creating solutions into this small San Francisco bathroom remodeling project. A built-in cabinet conceals storage for linens and toiletries without adding any visual clutter, while a small niche in the shower space offers a spot to leave soap and shampoo without taking up much real estate.
In working with this small bathroom, the owners decided to keep the existing sink—which adds a vintage touch—as well as the mirror found at a flea market. A touch of color was added with the blue tile flooring.
White hexagonal tile provides texture on the walls of this contemporary bathroom, while patterned black-and-white floor tile brings the space visual punch. The rich wood tone of the floating vanity helps ground the room and warm up the palette of cool neutrals.
This remodel was in conjunction with a few other projects in one residence, all in preparation for the arrival of a new baby.
The shower stayed in the same place, although the plumbing was moved. The toilet was moved to the opposite wall, and the sink was moved to the center of the bathroom. A freestanding tub was then installed on the opposite wall from the shower. Classic white subway tile on the shower walls and tub wall create a clean backdrop for the geometric pattern cement floor tiles.
A textured neutral paint adds subtle texture to create depth in the design of this small bathroom. Using a small vanity table leaves as much space available as possible in the room. A glass vessel sink blends beautifully with the glass tabletop while a built in shelf below provides storage space. A wood mirror and mounted sconce finish the vanity set up.
The designer set out to create perceived scale in a small space -- the open niche below the vanity serves to expand the bath area's visual footprint. Using multiple materials in similar tones gives additional depth and richness to this little bathroom.
