The clients were tired of their master bathroom. The appearance was dated. But Comfort Architecture saw an opportunity to do more than upgrade some finishes. Like a lot of master bathrooms, this one was merely a room with fixtures placed around the perimeter. By using subtle suggestions of the concept of "wall" and introducing some soffits, custom cabinetry, and lighting, the room was converted into three interlocking but separate spaces.
Before & After: Before renovation, there was no separation between vanity, toilet and shower spaces. New vanity space in the foreground with separate toilet/shower space in the background.
Before & After: Floor-to-ceiling porcelain & glass tile help define the toilet/shower area as being separate from the vanity area. Shelving at both ends of the shower provide a place for shampoo, soap and other showering accessories.
Before renovation, the make-up area was really just a cabinet stuck on the wall next to some open shelving in the corner of the room (left). Custom cabinetry increased storage capacity and defined the make-up area as its own space (center). Shallow drawers pivot out to reveal storage for jewelry and smaller make-up items (right).
