A Bath for All Ages

Fri 07 2010

A clean modern appearance was achieved by introducing angles and a linear tile layout. An asymmetrical soaking tub is reflected in angle by the shower seat. The contrasting effects of 2’x 2′ tiles versus micro-tiles and engineered stone versus granite helped convey a spa-like environment. Overall taupe and beige with the opposing honed black granite and carbon porcelain tiles bring interest in color to a neutral space. Jan E. Regis

The challenge for this single downstairs bath was to incorporate durability. Glass mosaic tiles wrap a portion of wall, which was furrowed six inches to accommodate cast iron pipes and still allow for the use of a ll-mounted faucet. Cherry cabinets and weathered copper fixtures tie this bath into the traditional styling of the old home. A granite vessel sink, mosaic tiles, and contemporary light fixtures give eclectic balance to the space. Cheryl Kees Clendenon

Captain’s Quarters

This new pool bath is fit  with the elegance of an old-time sailing vessel. The glossy wood paneling and oiled teak vanity exude warmth highlighted by period-style lighting. The blue green glass vessel sink and ship’s wheel handles of a wall mount faucet are accents to the wood-dominant room. Wood and brass are the compatible companions to give this client’s pool bathroom a distinct personality. Cheryl Kees Clendenon
