This week we spotlight the talent of Audra Lamb ASID, with Sunset Tile and Bath who won big in 2010-2011's Design Contest in the Bath Category.
Design Mission: Create a more contemporary Master Bath for the McNail Household without adding more space or breaking the bank.
Design Mission Statement:
This Master Bath’s builder grade configuration limited possibilities of elongated vanity as well as tub area. Reducing the vanity size allowed for enlarging tub platform and installing a tile surround.
The customer wanted to allow for a taller tub splash due to the roman tub faucet being modified into a wall mount diverter and spout.
The counter top backsplash was incorporated into the tub splash by continuing the travertine ogee molding and tumbled mesh to create a cohesive look through the bath.
In order to give the customer and more contemporary look, Prairie Maple cabinetry with a Sienna finish was used and allowed the bathroom to have balance between the light and dark finishes.
The drawers were upgraded to wood dovetail drawer boxes to give the customer a higher quality finish, but still keeping the cabinet economical.
The shower layout was reconfigured to allow the customer to incorporate and shower bench connecting with the tub platform.
• The customers incorporated an adjustable shower arm to allow for customization between their different heights.
• We used natural travertine tiles in two colors and multiples sizes to give visual interest without being overwhelming in their space.
• We also incorporated a frameless heavy glass shower enclosure with clear glass to allow for easy visibility of the new tile patters as well as increasing the feeling of a larger bathroom.
The large format mirror was also replaced with two custom framed mirrors to give a more inviting look to the vanity area.
A slab travertine counter top with under mount sinks gave a neutral look to the vanity area and made the cabinetry more of a focal point in the room.
Mission Accomplished - Great Work Audra!
