The other downstairs bath is a regular rectangular shaped bath like the master bathroom, so its layout is similar: one long wall with cabinets, a very large 48″ wide trough vessel sink, the other wall with walk in shower and toilet. With the exception of the full length tiled-in mirror in the master bath, this bathroom has all the same elements only in a smaller footprint with different material choices save for the cabinetry, which preserves both the style and material choices made upstairs.

The middle bath with the Wind tub by Neptune is a very unusually shaped tub. The shape of that tub, in my opinion, is the only thing that made the space viable for this room to house a full bath with tub, which was imperative because of very young grandkids. You will see this same tub in other projects in similar unusually shaped rooms. It is my go-to tub for rooms like this. The client chose floor-to-ceiling subway style 3 x 6 carrara marble tiles for the entire room, creating a very clean and simple look that’s very different than the master or the other downstairs bath.

The new master bathroom was completely reconfigured. The toilet was moved to the wall opposite its original placement to allow for larger sink storage cabinetry that now runs from wall to wall and a change from a single sink vanity to a double sink configuration. A large deck mount tub shower combination was removed and replaced with a new walk-in shower with no doors. This bathroom incorporates all my functional bath concepts: convenient storage, higher counter tops, functional and beautiful shower with no door, effective venting and heating, and good lighting.

Functional Retro Baths Upgrade

Similar to her kitchen and other bath, primary need was to upgrade the baths to a retro style she liked, while improving storage and overall bath functionality. We tried the best we could to conform to my functional bath checklist, with one exception.

The client chose not to bring the sinks close together and place wall cabinets on either side of them with outlets inside which is a hallmark to most of my functional bath cabinetry.

We reconfigured two full baths into one powder room and a larger master bath & closet suite combination. The area where the new toilet is in the master bath was originally a shower in the other full bath, which is now the powder room. This opened up the master bath for a much larger shower area and dual sinks instead of the single one it originally had.

The focus of this project was to upgrade the builder-grade master bath and cosmetically update two other baths and some hallway storage cabinets.

In the master bath, we removed a tub they never used in favor of creating a much larger walk-in shower and a sit down vanity. We also reworked the main sink area to fit our functional bath design concept of added storage next to the sink grooming centers. We also added some storage cabinets to the existing toilet room and changed that room’s door from an in-swing to a pocket door to make those new cabinets and toilet more easily accessible.

La Jolla Functional Bath Expansion

Labastida Residence
2012 | La Jolla

This master bathroom is in a La Jolla home that was originally built in the 1950s. It was a nicely built home for that time, but needed updating for the present-day homeowners. This bathroom was originally much smaller. The compartment area where the toilet is now did not exist prior to the project. The adjoining room on the other side of that wall opposite shower is a guest bedroom that had a closet spanning the entire length of that wall 10+ feet. We essentially cut the closet in half, built a wall midway, and captured the toilet area portion of space for the bathroom. The bedroom still has a decent closet, but now the bathroom has a semi-private toilet area.

Small Master Bath Remodel

Nakamura Residence
2011 | Serra Mesa, CA

This tiny bathroom was cramped, dark, and damp. Its fixtures were outdated and worn out. In rearranging this bath to open up the existing space to make it feel and function bigger and lighter, the key was to eliminate the original linen closet to your left as you look in the before pictures taken from the bathroom doorway. We relocated the sink to this original linen area, kept the shower in the same place as the original plan and moved the toilet away from the shower.

2008 | (Fletcher Hills) La Mesa, CA

This master bathroom was a lot of fun for me. The homeowner had very specific ideas as to what materials and overall look she wanted in this room, but no idea how to rearrange the old bathroom to accomplish her goals. The original photos show the original condition of this 1930's vintage bath. The key to the plan was rearranging the bath so there were no fixtures on the outside window wall. One of the two existing windows was actually covered up in a dead space when someone had added the shower some time in the distant past.

The master bath was enlarged by integrating space form the original bedroom closet area. A new larger closet area was added as part of a new room addition. This larger bath area allowed us to create a separate toilet room and making to main part of the bath large enough to have a separate sit down vanity area on the opposite wall of the two sinks.

Turchin Residence
Home Office for Two With a View
2007 | Fletcher Hills

This home was built with a very small office or potential maid’s quarters located next to the garage and hallway that leads to the laundry room and kitchen. It was a very long and narrow hall. The clients wanted to have an office in which both the husband and wife could have a workstation. The solution was to remove the wall between the office and hallway to create a larger more comfortable room that still acted as a path to the laundry and kitchen, but was now large enough to create a very comfortable office for two.

This was the second major project we did for this Bonita Family. This project included 3 bathrooms, and a laundry room remodel. The Master Bath was done first, then the other two baths and laundry room were done concurrently. Two of the baths and the laundry kept the same “classic white painted cabinet” look we used in the kitchen for their first remodel.

Contemporary Master Bath Makeover
2005 | Carmel Valley

As you can see from the photos, this bath is open to the master bedroom with no door to close and the wall between the two rooms does not extend all the way to the ceiling, leaving the air space in the main area with shower completely open to the bedroom. This is a great mechanical advantage when it comes to the air in this bath holding water — the air volume is so big there are few instances where the air can get super saturated. The client had lived with this basic configuration for decades and felt no need to improve the room’s ventilation or add a heater as we do in many projects that have more closed off air spaces.

This young couple’s first project when they moved into this home was to redo the master bath and closet. They really valued my suggestions regarding creating a functional bath. We incorporated all my basic components while helping them create a space uniquely tailored to their own sense of style and design. This project was a fun one, particularly the task of creating the walk-in shower for two, Which we accomplished by installing two independent shower systems, one fixed showerhead on one side of the shower and the other an adjustable hand held on the opposite side of the shower.

This is the third major remodeling project we did for this client. The style is in keeping with the South American country look we created for them in their kitchen and home’s other core areas.

We removed a tile sunken tub and replaced it with the reconfigured walk-in step-down shower with recessed shampoo shelves and grab bar. Note the robe hooks and towel rings attached to the tiled post.
