Kitchen + Bath: Drawing Board

Open Plan

Kitchen + Bath: Drawing Board 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.


Then Now
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Dilapidated white mosaic tiles on walls and floor had a run-down, outdated look.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.
