Project Name: Sammamish Bath Goes Zen
Location: Sammamish, WA
Timeframe: September - December 2013
Professional: Model Remodel
Description: Between corporate jobs and two kids, this Sammamish couple is too busy to redesign a room in their home. So with the help of Model Remodel's in-house designer they were able to seamlessly remodel their dated guest bathroom.
They got creative to make the bathroom appear larger than it started. First, they picked tile planks with long grains that gave the illusion of an elongated room. Second, they chose a vanity open at the bottom, to give the illusion of more space in the entire room. Last, she chose a mirror with a deep frame that acted as a built-in ledge. This gave a little extra depth in the room and allowed for extra storage for small items, such as a tooth brush or hair brush.
The project boasts other nice changes, too. The toilet is dual flush, the faucet is low-flow, and a sleek new shower replaced the old builder-grade tub. The use of dark and light tile created clean lines and broke up any monochromatic feelings. The tile is definitely a conversation piece, even more beautiful in person than in pictures.
