Category 7: Large Bathrooms (more than 55 sq. ft.)

Garden Bath Has Sanctuary Quality

The bathroom-as-sanctuary model is the basis for this Asian-inspired bath. Holly Rickert, with co-designer Julia Kleyman of Ulrich, Inc., placed the deep Japanese soaking tub from Cabuchon in the window, sitting atop loose river rocks within a drained fiberglass pan. The centerpiece of the room, the tub has an in-line heater.

“A large walk-in shower and separate water closet were incorporated in a space that had been an extra guest closet in an adjacent room,” says Rickert. The water closet includes a Toto Nexus toilet and Washlet bidet seat.

Light & Luxury Unite in Condo Bath

The owners of this bath sought a light, luxurious space for two that would meet their condominium’s restrictions. Designer Victoria Shaw of Pickering, ON-based Binns Kitchen+Bath used a light color scheme and a spate of natural materials to accomplish this.

A stone wall above the vanity and along one long wall in the wet room unifies the spaces. The designer removed an unused tub and created a large walk-in shower. Products include SieMatic cabinetry, Kohler’s Escale toilet, custom Corian countertops and faucets and fittings from Hansgrohe’s Axor Citterio collection.

Fossils Dot Nature-Inspired Bath

Designer Lori W. Carroll, along with co-designer Mary Roles of Tuscon, AZ-based Lori Carroll & Associates, sought to create a design lush with textures, a warm, nature-inspired color scheme and as many nature-derived elements as possible.

“Moroccan Marrakech marble slabs, embedded with delicate fossils and polished to reveal the geological treasures within, are the natural wonder that offers a memorable focal point wall above the sink,” says Carroll.

That sink is the Concrete Wave by Sonoma Cast Stone, complemented by Sonoma Forge’s RampBridge Deck faucet.

Corrugation tiles in Antique Iron give a roughly layered and dimensional quality to the wall, meant to contrast with the polished marble.
