Designing for How You Imagine Your Home Will Feel

~ This Queen Anne Bungalow had no powder room.
~ Everyone used the master bath, as it was the only bath on this level.
~ The door to the bathroom exposed the entire bathroom when open.
Wish List
~ Privacy for the master bath.
~ Artistic presentation--i.e., something to distract the eye. The room will still be visible from the kitchen's dining area.
~ "We don't want it to feel like you walked into the coat closet."
Solution & Gains
~ Landon recommended a simple solution: Access the master bath through their closet's back wall. This, in turn, allowed him to close off the former entry into the bath, and take a 10"-deep corner out of same (using thin-wall construction).
~ Therefore, we located the plumbing on the side.

~To visually expand this very small space (79" x 32" in the main section), bamboo flooring was used on the wall behind the wall-hung vanity.
~ The bamboo panels in the cabinet doors, continue the feeling of expansiveness.
~ Artistry and drama is obviously present with the Kraus Millenium faucet!
~ The copper, trough sink is a perfect companion--allowing plenty of runway for the water as it sweeps down into the basin.
~ Adding a clerestory window (see the elevation drawings below) brings light from the master bath into the powder room.
