Project vision or goals

This repeat client wanted to take their bathroom out of the 90’s. The shower and jetted tub had to go! We created a sense of space with different tile orientations. The free-standing tub and floor mounted tub filler are very eye-catching, but perhaps the best part of this bathroom is the vanity. When a custom vanity size is desired, but your timeline doesn’t allow for custom, you get creative! You’d never guess the vanity is three vanities combined. Adding lighting underneath gave it the perfect touch to make the room glow. Now this everyday space feels like a luxury spa resort.

Project challenges
  For this project we were working with a strict timeline that was quickly approaching which didn’t leave time for any custom orders. A 90” vanity is not easy to come by let alone in a look the clients envisioned.
The vanity itself was an obstacle but in addition to the construction of the three units we were left with a ½” on either side that needed to match the overall finished look.
With the reconfiguration of walls, the former wall vent was going to end up interfering with the shower location. We needed to consult with our HVAC expert about moving this vent to a new more desirable location.
Project solutions
  We achieved their vanity vision by thinking outside the box and using three floating vanities that we hung side by side to appear as one. Then when the countertop went in, the vanities became one and presented as a single unit that worked together perfectly. To overcome the 1/2" space on each side of the vanity we used a custom veneered scribe and matched the white-washed walnut stain color. In addition to a creative vanity design the pony wall between the shower and tub gave us an opportunity to create a shelf near the tub to be utilized for soaps or candles.
After analyzing multiple options for moving this vent we discovered there was enough room between the first floor and the basement floor to route the wall supply vent to a floor vent approximately 9' on the opposite side of the bathroom. This required additional demolition and materials but was worth the effort.
