How-to Create a Hotel Chic Bathroom

Designer Negar Reihani transformed this bathroom that lacked style and storage by mixing modern and traditional elements

 

DESIGN AND LAYOUT  The space was not large so it was important to plan, design and select beautiful yet functional finishes. The first thing we did was remove the glass blocks. They were unattractive, but they did provide light and privacy in the space. We solved this problem by creating floor-toceiling storage and fronting the doors with elegant mirrors. We designed a beautiful custom cabinet and vanity. We chose a marble wall tile with a beautiful soft gray grain. The marble was also used in the shower, which complements the beautiful glass doors. The shower features matching marble floor tiles in a chevron pattern to add interest and drama. The light wood cabinetry is modern and balances perfectly with the marble. This combination of elements lightens the feel of the room and keeps it contemporary and timeless. All of the fixtures are a polished stainless steel which adds luxury and femininity to the design. 

DESIGNER ADVICE  Stay away from common finishes, fixtures, vanities and storage cabinets. Think about what your space requires and how you can accommodate that need in an unconventional way to create a unique space. 

SAVE AND SPLURGE  We saved by keeping the location of the plumbing fixtures where they were and splurged on custom millwork. I’m a big fan of custom millwork; it makes a huge difference in the functionality and look of a space.
