Savena Doychinov was charged with updating a non-descript, 35-square-foot master bath in a Falls Church, Virginia, townhouse, while also adding as much storage and countertop space to the tiny room as possible. Other goals for the project included uniting the bath and adjacent bedroom visually to make the space feel more like a master suite; modernizing the bath to create a timeless look; and enlivening the décor by giving it architectural definition.
Doychinov began by installing two floor-to-ceiling recesses to hold glass shelving, both for storage and for decoration. She also replaced the tub with a shower, adding a two-level niche and cladding the back wall in aqua glass tiles inspired by the headboard in the bedroom. Dimmable lighting contributes to the mood as does a range of materials, including custom-cut limestone wall tiles, a wall-hung vanity with a stainless-steel vessel sink and hardware and cherry veneer panels behind the recessed area.
