As an interior designer the best part of a project is seeing a space dramatically change in form and appearance.
The client’s main requested for this project was, functionally. As parents they wanted a tub — primarily for their toddler — as well as individual basins for themselves. Beyond this, the design was meant to be modest, mostly airy, and classical in design.
Here is the existing bathroom before the ideas started developing. As you can see grouped together on the wall is a corner shower, bidet and toilet. There is no tub in this bathroom.
The opposite wall had a full length vanity

Floor Plan After:
The design concept for this bathroom renovation was to create a clean, calm, and yet practical bathroom for this new family. This resulted in making accommodations for their small child, while keeping it relaxing and useful for adults.
The bathroom after the renovation
The first challenge was updating the out of date bathroom into a relaxing retreat for adults, while simultaneously creating a functional space to bath a toddler.
The second challenge was integrating ideas inspired by places the couple had traveled to.
Drawing inspiration from a distinctive Moroccan metal lantern that the couple found during a trip in 2009, we created a theme with arabesque tile wainscot. We also combined the North African country’s alluring design styles with a serene color palette to create a functional space that is perfect for the family. The framed photograph is a reminder of the salt flats in the Atacama Desert in Chile, where they honeymooned.
Hope you enjoyed this new interior space.
