Master Bath fit for a Hotel

This lovely master bath was such a pleasure to design!
Located in one of Royal Oak's beautiful historic homes of the Hendrie nieghborhood

Believe it or not, every part of this cabinetry design was from my afforable production line, "Quality Cabinets."  Designing outside the box and using materials in non conventional ways is how I achieved this look for my clients.
Behind the mirrors, cabinetry and lighting is actually an old chimney that we had to work around. 
Having the lighting above lends to the perfect bath for prepping in.

Dual function is one of my personal favorite design elements when creating a space.
Below, the cabinetry offers storage inside for makeup, medicine, toothpaste, etc., while on the outside boasts a beautiful beveled mirror.

The center which is in front of the hidden chimney offers the perfect large mirror, framed in by cabinetry
An ideal Master Bath, has a "HIS" and "HER" station.....wouldn't you agree? 
By keeping with the tone of the home's age, we wanted this design to be a modern convience but still speak of the 1920's.  The existing tile was kept so I worked the design around that.  I love how the black borders the vanity space below
Double panels on the exposed sides hid the fact that an unsightly chimney is behind

The marble top is the perfect light companion to the dark Dulce stain of the cabinetry
One of my favorite baths to date!
Does your bath make you smile?

Kristen I am just checking out your blogs now and this one has me really excited to re-do our kitchen, which is the original 1961 design from when the house was first built. The drawers don't even have metal runners and they are awful! I can't wait to take a sledge hammer to all of it.

Oh, I love, love, love, love!! It reminds me of those neat old-time bars, but done up as a very well-thought out bathroom instead. What a gorgeous design!!
