Some pictures of our completed remodel of the cramped master bathroom in NE Portland’s Laurelhurst district.
Looking from the pocket door into the bathroom. You can see the new upright, tiled shower enclosure and adjacent inset bathtub. We designed the space such that the tub deck becomes a bench inside the shower, separated by a custom built glass shower enclosure. We selected a quartz product for the tub deck, of course matched on the new vanity, manufactured by 3Form called Chroma. Our clients chose a carrara marble for the walls, both inside the shower and around the new bathtub, which works well with the Chroma.
Another image of the transition between the new tub deck and shower bench seat. This was our first time implementing a tub deck that flows into a shower seat, though we will be tempted to bring it out again!
As part of the changes in this remodel, we deleted a window centered over the existing vanity. With the increased depth of the room (by pushing out into the adjacent dining area three feet) the window would no longer have been centered, and stood in the way of the double mirrors our clients were interested in above the new vanity. To bring some additional natural light into the bathroom we suggested adding this new Velux skylight. We selected the largest unit that would fit in the room, then angled the sides to capture as much sun as possible.
It’s certainly hard to take good perspective shots in a small bathroom, though we try! This shot of the new custom vanity shows the double sinks, and the floating front. By lifting the front of the vanity 12″ off the ground, we achieve the appearance of a larger bathroom, something this project clearly needed!
This closeup of the new vanity shows the clean lines, mixed with more traditional hardware, designed to update the bathroom and hopefully provide for an illusion of greater space.
