This previously small and under-utilized hall bathroom presented several design challenges.  Maximizing storage and creating a big feeling with limited square footage was priority.  It was also imperative that the end result be bright, warm, durable and easy to maintain while achieving a sleek contemporary look.  

The solution was multi-fold.  The fixture layout was rearranged to maximize function.  European frameless cabinetry with large drawers was used to maximize storage.  A larger medicine cabinet was custom designed and placed on an angle to give maximum storage above the vanity.  Warmth was brought into the space with the charcoal wood grain patterned floor tile and Rift White Oak horizontal grain cabinetry.  A soft blue grey hue was chosen for the walls and a new 5 lite door, bringing serenity and peace to the space.  Updated LED recessed lights bounce off the Porcelanosa wall tile and highlight the subtle stripe detail.  The old light bar was replaced with sleek wall sconces providing more flattering light both outward for the user and down to the counter to illuminate items gracing the surface. 

Special details such as the stone wrapped vanity were achieved through acute intention by the designer and skillful execution by fine local craftsman.  Dekton was used as the wrap to create a striking and unexpected detail which is abundant in simplicity and modern elegance while providing a durable and easy to maintain surface.  The mirror was inset flush with the surrounding Porcelanosa wall tile for a frameless application.  Wall to wall Euro glass sliding shower doors maximize the spacious feeling and slide seamlessly on a brushed nickel mechanical rail system.
