BoyS’ Bath

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With an emphasis on the plural.  This bathroom is shared by four boys, so the design needed masculine appeal and an emphasis on usability.

On the usability front:

  • The new vanity is taller and has 6 deep drawers replacing less usable open under-sink space.
  • A walk-in shower with frameless glass replaced an unused tub/shower combination.
  • The shower tile extends to the ceiling and a wainscot of tile was added not only making the room appear bigger, but expanding the splash zone.
  • A shampoo cubby was inserted in the shower wall for easy storage and access to toiletries.
  • Towel hooks were installed which take up less space and are more likely to get used by teenage boys.
  • A large shower head was installed making quick showers more likely.

For visual appeal:

  • Large 12×24 “metalwood” tiles with stacked horizontal bands of narrow glass tile create a clean, masculine look.
  • The head-banger cabinet was removed creating a visually larger space.
  • Frameless shower glass allows full appreciation of the stunning new shower tile.
  • Tone on tone grays create a calm and less busy space.
  • New nickel plumbing fixtures, bathroom accessories and lighting finished off the new look.
