This amazing historical home needed some modern convenience for guest who visited. These homeowners are world travelers and are inspired by the Asian Culture. They love the mission look, but also wanted to bring some elements from the Asian design to this bathroom they use for guest. They contracted Roeser Home Remodeling about their bathroom remodel.
Flanked by two bedrooms, this bath has an entry from each adjoining room. It also has a large walk-in linen closet they wanted to keep- so storage was not an issue. Keeping the existing plumbing pretty much where it was became the best option for this bath with so many doorways.
Falling in love with the Kohler freestanding white cast iron tub with base is where we began. We replaced the built-in tub with the free standing- however we did move the wall from underneath the tub forward to keep cleaning easy. The original archway was kept in place and tiled along its edge matching the wall tile. Floor tile 13” X 20” in Bronzed Beacon with Mapei Sahara grout was installed in a broken joint pattern. The wall tile was the same in a 13” X 13” tile with a matching marble niche for shower products. An 11 ¼” X 11 ½ ”Stainless Steel Stippled” ¾” accent strips centered on the tub gave an interesting focal point.
Kohler’ Archer comfort height toilet with slow close seat in white was installed. Plumbing fixtures were from the Moen Voss series and had the simple curvatures of the Asian design. A Kohler white under mount lavatory sink sits beneath the beauty of a granite countertop in Arandi’s Dream with a Pencil Edge detail. The Countertop wrapped around the corner and topped a hidden radiator. An old lead glass window compliments the corner and added to the design.
The Vanity is Wellborn’s Premier Line in the Landcaster Series- Cherry with a Nutmeg Java Finish touched on the couples Mission Styling and the hardware by Top Knobs ornamented the Vanity with an Asian Flair. The custom made cabinet with the same finishes houses the radiator and a brushed nickel screen allows the heating elements to come through.
An Asian inspired light fixture over a simple beveled mirror completes the room. A brushed nickel curved shower rod adds privacy for bathing or protection for showering. Installing can lighting in the bathroom and above the tub area made an otherwise dark bathroom bright and an added dimmer can bring those cans to soothing, relaxing light. Any guest is lucky to stay in this five star bathroom.
