2007 CotY Awards Winner, Residential Bath under $30,000: 'Amazing Multi-Tasking Bathroom' Gets Makeover to Include More Storage

As part of a dual kitchen/bath remodel done by DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen by Worldwide of St. Louis Park, MN, the clients here requested that their redesigned bath remain in the 45-sq.-ft. original footprint. For the design staff, that meant creative planning to rearrange what was called “the amazing multi-tasking bathroom,” since the person using the toilet could easily wash his or her feet in the shower at the same time. Storage was, therefore, a pretty significant problem.

The clients were very fond of bold colors and, for their bath, requested a strong pink, but directed the designers to select a shade of pink that wouldn’t remind them of Pepto-Bismol. The design team took space from an existing storage closet to create new, requested towel storage.

The shower/tub combination was relocated to the far wall, deemed the most space-saving place for it. Then the space-saving innovations were built-in: the vanity took up a corner of what was formerly the closet; a wall-mounted faucet preserved the counter depth, as did a wall-hung wood vanity top with open space underneath.

Swanstone’s Hilo sink, Kohler’s Hourglass tub and Highline toilet were specified along with lav and tub faucets, rain and hand showers, towel bar and other fixtures by Danze. A granite ledge ties together the vanity, new storage cabinet and tub/shower combination. A large circular vanity mirror was selected to accent the curves of the vessel sink and fixtures. The wood vanity top, shower door and granite ledge were all custom work, fabricated locally for the project.
