    • Down by the Sea

      Although finding inspiration for this bathroom makeover was easy, reworking the existing utilitarian bathroom space was a challenge. To integrate the new bathroom into the rest of this home's decor, the homeowners stripped the room down the studs and infused the space with natural light, ocean-inspired hues, and playful nautical details.

    • Custom Shower Space

      At one end of the bathroom is an enclosed shower with a frameless glass door. A skylight overhead and large aqua tiles made from recycled glass create the illusion of showering outdoors. A built-in corner bench and two showerheads add functionality to the oversize shower space.

    • Tiles with Style

      The vibrant aqua wall tiles are complemented by a custom blend of clear glass tile, opaque glass tile, and various hues of Carrara marble tile on the shower floor. The same tile treatment -- though on a larger scale -- is repeated on the rest of the bathroom floor.

    • Built-In Benefits

      Clad in iridescent aqua tile, the shower is the perfect place to greet the morning or to unwind after a day at the beach. A handy niche cut into one wall provides storage space to keep soaps and shampoo bottles off of the floor.

    • Warm & Toasty

      Positioned next to the shower, a heated rack ensures guests will always have a toasty towel for drying off. Radiant floor heating installed beneath the tiled floor keeps the floor warm and heats the entire bathroom from the ground up.

    • Nautical Notions

      To provide contrast to the whimsical floor and shower tiles, the homeowners incorporated traditional elements that convey a vintage nautical vibe, such as the espresso-finish wood vanity. Other nautical details include the thick white molding that frames the mirrors and clerestory windows above the vanity.

    • On Display

      The custom vanity has an open, slatted shelf underneath to maximize storage while maintaining the bathroom's open and airy atmosphere. The open storage offers display space for large baskets of towels and nautical-inspired decor. Just beyond the vanity sits a private toilet compartment.

    • A Pirate's Life for Me

      Cool-white Carrara marble countertops and creamy-white subway tile lining the lower walls help to balance the vanity's dark wood finish. Oil-rubbed-bronze faucets and sconces add to the vintage, seaside flavor. These finishes, paired with artwork reflected in the mirror, are some of the subtle piratelike details that visually connect the bathroom with the rest of the home's lower level.
