The house had only one full bath.
With clever planning, a tiny bath (37.5 square feet) was wedged into a small corner as part of a master bedroom attic conversion (after the last teenager moved out). The in-wall air conditioner was removed and a partition wall with pocket door was built as close to the existing window as possible which provided more than enough clearance in front of the toilet. The 30" wide vanity is on the short wall with no height for a medicine cabinet. Wrap around mirror above 8" of tile backsplash provides mirror for grooming and helps the space feel larger, and a medicine cabinet was installed on the adjacent wall. The wall sconce is tight to the wall and projects only 2.5". In a typical bath renovation, a recessed wet-location light is installed in the shower ceiling but because of the low slanted ceiling that was not possible. Track lighting with small adjustable heads was installed above the door with light directed into the shower and up to the ceiling. Heat is supplied, as needed, by a small but powerful electric plug-in wall heater. An exterior wall exhaust fan clears out steam.
Materials were carefully selected to provide calm interest. The color palette is a neutral white and grey, with plenty of pattern and texture. Dark grey grout accents the small scale Carrara marble herringbone main floor, the mini square shower floor and the vertical 4 x 16 shower tile. The mini mosaic, seen in the backsplash and accent strip in the shower, is a combination of marble plus frosted and clear glass. The Cambria quartz countertop adds reflective sparkle and shine.
