Challenge Reimagine and recreate this dated bathroom as a wholly contemporary space.
Solution Introduce wall-mounted custom cabinets featuring slab doors and drawers with a dark finish over the horizontal grain. Combine these with a gray glass tile backsplash and a lighter gray quartz countertop.
Tile the shower, tub, and floor in coordinating grays. Illuminate the space with a glass-block window and cylindrical light fixtures bracketing the large mirrors.
Results The overall impression created by this makeover is sleek and striking: The horizontal patterns of the cabinets effect a complementary geometry with the contrasting floor tiles, while the spare plumbing fixtures and pervasive lighting accentuate the room’s clean, economical lines.
The dark cabinet—manufactured using a structured thermofoil that stands up to the higher humidity of a bathroom—anchors the space with an organic warmth that offsets the cool colors of this thoroughly modern bathroom.
