The emphasis was on aging in place in the design of a contemporary Annapolis master bath by architect Scarlett Breeding of Alt Breeding Schwarz. In keeping with the home’s streamlined, modern style, she accentuated long, linear lines in the bath—while also ensuring long-term function with a curb-less shower, seated vanity area, oversized W.C., strategically placed grab bars and extended tub platform.
The vanity, which boasts two sinks, is made of an etimoe wood grain-matched veneer that echoes the furniture in the adjacent master bedroom. The wall-to-wall vanity mirror brings in light and a sense of openness and a dropped canopy above the counter houses the proper illumination.
A polished stainless-steel base reveals with integrated lighting creates a safe path for travel around the tub—and a wonderful glow that almost makes the tub deck appear to float. Large-scale, neutral-hued limestone tiles and complementary Lagos Azul limestone countertops convey a warm, restful vibe.
