Located in Bauer Woods in NW Portland, a small community equipped with a local cobbler and our favorite Thai restaurant, it’s no wonder these clients chose this neighborhood as their home. With a little Northland TLC we made this home all the homier with a new Northwest contemporary and transitional styled bathroom remodel.
With an outdated, awkwardly L-shaped original footprint, finding a creative way to overcome the strange configuration of this space was our designer’s greatest goal. By removing the unused tub we were able to enlarge the closet space, creating his and her closets with separate entries. Now this working wife doesn’t have to worry about any of her husband’s business suits or rafting/backpacking/skiing equipment getting mixed in with her professional wardrobe and shoe collection. We even added an extra shoe shelf outside the closest to boot! (pun intended).
Even more reflective of the couple is the original inspiration for this design: the plank flooring. Having seen it in a showroom, Gina knew it had to go in this bathroom as soon as she saw it. With 3 teenagers, a dog and cat, it wouldn’t only always look clean and fresh, but earthy and unusual. Adding to the outdoorsy, natural feel is the warm sapele mahogany vanity and quartz countertop. The lighting from the industrial sconces brings out the sparkly flecks in the stacked-stone backsplash it sits against.
