This master bath links the bedroom to a walk-in closet. The designer used the narrow shape to his advantage, relegating the tub, shower, and toilet to one side of the room and the vanity to the other. Sleek cabinets and subdued colors honor the home's midcentury modern roots while instilling an air of serenity.
A floating vanity creates the illusion of space in this small bathroom. Cabinets perched on tall metal legs below the vanity enhance the open feel. A support post, which couldn't be removed, was tied into the room with tile that matches the countertop. Windows high on the wall allow light into the small room while protecting privacy.
Aniline dyes contribute vibrant colors to the vanity's sycamore veneer. The tub features a dyed-concrete surround that matches the vanity countertop. Note how the shower is angled into the corner of the bathroom and enclosed with glass to keep sight lines open. Angular lines on polished chrome hardware and fixtures complement the modern feel.
Custom cabinetry is veneered with Japanese sen, a light-color wood with a very subtle grain that lends itself to contemporary designs. The space between the cabinets and mirrors is fitted with narrow, open storage to accommodate small accessories and towels. The corrugated-metal rolling hampers are a clever use of undercounter space and add texture to the room. Frosted-glass vessel sinks enhance the modern feel.
Pedestals have an upright sense of style that values neatness, nostalgia, and openness. They provide a space-efficient design with roots in the late 1800s. Modern versions of the classic pedestal sink, such as this one, have a clean, sculptural shape that gives a full bath the intimacy of a powder room.
Luxurious materials and deep colors produce a soothing ambience in this oceanfront master bath. High interior windows bring in light from an adjacent home office, supplementing the natural light from windows above the vanities.
Frosted-glass doors and dividing walls are a clever way to separate the bedroom from the bathroom while still allowing light to filter into the bath. A sleek double vanity with a mix of drawers, open shelves, and baskets combines wood finishes, metal, and porcelain sink bowls for a contemporary look.
