2016 ASID NJ Bronze Award For Design Excellence - Small Bathroom
The homeowners wanted to convert the 22 square foot half bath to a full guest bath for overnight visitors.
As part of the concurrent kitchen renovation the half bath was widened into the kitchen from 49" to 80" to create a snug but functional 38 square foot bathroom. A key aspect was to angle the shower glass wall and wall mount vanity top to create a comfortable entrance and large enough shower.
The playful orange accents in the field of white tile echo the oranges and reds in the kitchen next door, while the cobalt blue floor adds pop. This is a great example of creating a bold, dynamic look using very affordable machine-made tile.
Continuing with the playful theme, the shower ceiling gets the trademark Tracey Stephens broken tile mosaic treatment. The angled wall created an odd shape for the ceiling, and once the 6x6 bullnose tiles were installed for a border, the interior would have been left with a few 6x6 whole tiles plus a few weirdly shaped little bits. The solution was to intentionally use random jigsaw puzzle shapes to create a uniform pattern.
