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.

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.

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.

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.

This is the second project we did for this young couple. We did their master bath as soon as they bought this home. A few years later, when they were expecting their first child, they called to focus on this kid’s bath, with the priority to get it done well before the expected due date.

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.

Shortly after completing their kitchen remodel this client asked us to do a master bath remodel. Our task here was to create a european style bath with floor to ceiling tile all around and build a custom made jacuzzi which was to be heavily used for medical therapeutic reasons.
