Clients who were in the midst of remodeling a townhouse condominium tapped Davida Rodriguez to transform the master bath, which still retained the fixtures and look of its 1940s origins. Rodriguez envisioned an open, clean-lined space that would convey a sense of drama—without breaking the bank.
|The original bathroom was tiny and cramped with fixtures that were worn and old-fashioned.||The bathroom is now more than double its original size, with his- and her vanities and a soaking tub; faucets are by Latoscana.|
|There were no windows so the room was dark as well as small.||An opaque glass wall in the shower and tub enclosure lets in light while preserving privacy.|
|The bathroom felt claustrophobic and its stand-alone sink offered no storage.||The partially enclosed shower conveys a sense of openness, and floating vanities topped with quartz offer space for storage.|
|Dilapidated white mosaic tiles on walls and floor had a run-down, outdated look.||Marble-like porcelain tiles create a focal point while porcelain floor tiles that look like dark-stained wood provide contrast.|
