Old Meets New in this Modern Bath
Built in 1958, this Colonial home had the space and many of the features this young professional couple desired; however as in many homes from the same time period, the master bathroom was dated and small. In viewing the space of the second floor and the master bedroom, KBDC Design Associate Kate Yurgelun, felt that the existing bathroom could be enlarged by taking over an adjoining closet space. Incorporating classic materials such as bright white wall tile combined with period looking hexagon floor tile similar to that used in other baths of the residence, Kate was able to give this space an ageless feel that blends easily with the home’s style. The cabinets were kept simple, a painted Maple finish in Arctic White, with Quartz countertops, shower seat and threshold. Heated flooring, brushed nickel fixtures including a handheld shower head and slide bar bring this master bath up to 21st century standards. By taking over the closet area Kate was able to give this couple the beautiful shower space they desired. Rounding out the room is a pair of oil rubbed bronze light fixtures and barn doors that warm up the otherwise white space with old world charm.
