A 1960's WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATION
Welcome back to Project High Mark, a renovation project where the entire house has been completely gutted. In its heyday I’m sure this 1960’s custom home was lovely in every way! It’s located in a beautiful park-like setting amongst some of the best agricultural land in Northern California.
For this post I'm sharing the final design plan for the master bathroom. Rest assured, we explored lots of different floor plan options before the clients decided what direction they wanted to go.
ORIGNAL MASTER BATH FLOOR PLAN & PROCESS PHOTOS
I so wish that I had gotten a photographer in before the demolition started but even so I do have a few process photos that show remnants of the old house mixed in with construction but before I share those photos let's first take a look at the orginal floor plan.
Did you notice how completely awkward the entire original floor plan was! Besides being broken up into two odd spaces there's also weird adjacencies like a closet next to a closet, the door swing against a toilet - notice too all the wasted space, much of which was given to circulation.
NEW FLOOR PLAN
Now for the new bathroom & closet floor plan. Though the two rooms aren't shown in a complete drawing, the way I've stacked them shows how the spaces go together. The sink wall and the closet wall are shared.
Notice how the new floor plan defines the space in a much more efficient way - without any wasted space. The space is well-appointed with visual balance between all the fixtures. I would have preferred the toilet be in a separate compartment and further away from the door leading into the space, but the clients didn't have the same priorities. So in the end it was decided this was the best option for their needs.
BATHROOM & CLOSET FEATURES
Walk-in tile shower with dual heads and glass panel
Soaking tub with jets
Dressing room styled built-in cabinets and shelves
Over-sized floor mirror with light fixture above
Now let's look at the space in the perspective plan views...
Here's a few screenshots from the animation provided for the clients of the space...
FEATURE WALL ELEVATION
I also explored a bunch of different options for the feature / sink wall design with the clients before they decided on this one...
COLORS + MATERIALS + PLUMBING AND LIGHTING SELECTIONS
I usually design elevations by using specific plumbing & lighting selections, that way we're ahead of the game when it comes to getting information to the plumbing, lighting and cabinet sub-contractors. The finIsh materials selections usually come later unless the tile, for example is driving the design like in this project and this project. The finish materials included on this design board haven't been finalized (they were provided as a jumping off point) but the lighting and plumbing fixtures are absolutes.
ONSITE PROCESS PHOTOS
How about this view? Fancy! Fancy! The view shows the master bedroom looking in from the hallway. The door way you see on the left is the new bathroom door. Not shown in the photo is the new closet door - both will have barn doors.
This is the opposite view from the image above - from inside the bedroom looking though the French door opening to the hall.
Here is the view looking into the new bathroom. Shower straight ahead, sink cabinet will be to the left, soaking tub on the right and toilet immediately to the right as you enter the space.
This view shows the closet to the far right and the bathroom straight ahead.
And then there is me, doing what I do...
Cheerio! Thanks for following along.
