Contemporary Bathroom Renovation (Potomac, MD)

The Customer lives in a contemporary Potomac home. Although their bathroom featured over 320 square feet, the design was impractical and lacked effective storage, with a very small shower and over sized tub. The bathtub area had full windows, and since it rests on the first floor, lacked privacy. We opted to triple the size of the shower, decked out with steam and multiple jets, all controlled by Kohler DTV system, while retaining ample space for the tub. Windows were changed to glass blacks to provide privacy and natural light. The Customer has an extensive collection of glass art from her World travels. We strove to design the bathroom to feature glass in the doors, cabinets, shower doors, custom framed mirrors and in a custom glass shelving unit where some of her artwork is displayed. The bathroom melded traditional elements such as botticinno and emperador marble and raised panel wood cabinetry, but in a contemporary way with brick-patterned glass stone mosaic accents and larger format field tiles. The cabinetry featured ample storage with wall cabinets resting on the vanity top and concealed electrical, with hidden outlets and lights built into the wall cabinets.
