When Mike bought his White Plains condo, he wasn’t so happy with the bathrooms. They hadn’t been touched since the 1950′s, and definitely were not his style. As a single 30-something, he wanted to reflect his modern aesthetic.
The first project he tackled was his master bath. He chose a floating vanity from Xylem to make the space feel larger and more open, and complimented it with a faucet from Hansgrohe and shower fixtures from Kohler. For the tile, Mike wanted something very clean and simple, and loved the concrete look of these large porcelain tiles. The same color tiles were used on the wall and floor, only in different sizes.
Once this bath was done, Mike moved on to his hall bath. He wanted to keep a similar look and feel to the space, but it was much smaller and had a tub. He chose a similar but smaller wall-hung vanity from Ronbow, and used a coordinating thick ceramic top. For the tub, Mike went with Kohler’s Archer whirlpool, which has very sleek, clean lines. He used Kohler’s Toobi faucet and shower fixtures, which add a fun, contemporary look.
Mike loved the look of Carrara marble, but didn’t want to deal with the maintenance. So in his hall bath we used a great porcelain that looks strikingly like natural Carrara marble. I will be getting a better picture of the tile and adding it later.
What do you think of these transformations?
