Lined in BLack  -  bathroom remodel

Lakeview,    Chicago Illinois    Completed 2017

This bathroom renovation shows that the use of simple lines and a pop of color can make a bold statement.  White field tile is accented with black grout. A simple subway tile was used on the walls while a more detailed floor pattern lines the floor. That sharp black grout creates a strong graphic on the floor to complement the simpler walls.  In the soap niche, the subway tile is tuned 45 degrees to add another level of detail.  

It's always tough to work within a dormered space.  The solution here was to reconfigure the room and reduce the open space, but improve the overall geometry of the floor plan. We filled in the awkward angled space under the now hidden roofline with a tall deep cabinet while a stand alone tub sits neatly under the other.  The new blue/green vanity with two sinks is brightly lit by new sconces and it's proximity to the window.

Another big move was opening up the shower.  In many cases, we use a frameless shower door, but the new black frame maintains the black and white storyline.
