We’ve recently completed two very different Master Bathroom Projects and would like to share them with you here. For each bathroom, we used the same approach from an interior design perspective, however, based on the materials selected, the final outcomes are very different.
The first is a Master Bathroom in Bethesda, MD with transitional look, a traditional backdrop and spiced up with an ethnic flair.
The second is a transitional Potomac, MD Master Bathroom with a contemporary backdrop spiced up with Asian flair.
Bathroom Design – How We Achieved These Results
In the first approach, we began with an updated floor plan that removed the large, seldom used tub, enlarged the shower and provided for ample storage in the custom vanity cabinets and linen closet. Next, easy maintenance porcelain tiles made to look like slate were chosen for the floor and shower. Accents were selected for the shower with the look of bronzed metal.
The clients knew they wanted wood cabinetry, so we honed in on a slightly traditional Shaker silhouette in cherry wood with a warm honey brown finish. Timeless fixtures in polished chrome were chosen and work began.
Fast forward to post-construction, we selected ethnic-inspired accessories to compliment the couples’ love of travel.
A custom niche trimmed in the same bronzed metal tile used in the shower graces the back wall of the separate toilet room.
In the second Master Bathroom, we began very much the same way as the first. An updated floor plan made better use of the existing space… a large tub was removed from the room which allowed for a comfortable shower, large vanity, separate toilet room, loads of storage, a fireplace, and something the client really wanted in the room – space for a comfortable chair to watch television.
The shower tile was selected next – the highlight – round tiles that resemble water droplets were used along the entire back wall of the shower.
A neutral colored stone resembling bamboo was selected for the TV/fireplace wall. We love the look and texture of this tile!
With all the tile in place, it became evident that something different was needed for the bathroom floor. After much research, a natural teak was decided upon. With storage as the primary goal, the vanity/linen cabinets were designed, and a grey-green similar to the shower tiles was selected as the millwork paint color. The wall color is a ginger tone that provides and unexpected punch.
As the clean Asian-inspired look was subtly coming together, the addition of custom wood-framed soji screens to enhance a large window made perfect sense. The feel of the room is very spa-like and the warmth of the teak floors keep this bathroom from feeling stark.
At Danziger Design, we bring a two-fold approach to Master Bathroom Design. First we look to provide maximum efficiency in your space while meeting all of your functionality needs and wants. Secondly, we guide you through the many selections that will ultimately give you the look and feel you are seeking to achieve.
