About the Project

Why should your second bath be second rate? Not every bathroom features a killer view, but you can still create an opulent washroom where guests and family members feel indulged. In this NYC apartment, a standard hall bath contains nothing standard. The floor and the wall behind the toilet and vanity are covered in gray and white marble mosaics. 12 x 24 marble tiles form the tub surround and front; a smaller size is the baseboard trim, and a slab is used on the vanity top. Plumbing fixtures, accessories, and tube LED vanity lights are all matte black for contrast.

Though the vanity is moderately sized, there’s plenty of storage in its two drawers, which sport integrated beveled edges for a clean hardware-free look. Its rift-cut natural white oak finish adds organic warmth to the otherwise cool-toned room. It floats above the floor, creating greater spaciousness.

Positioned below the window is the tub / shower. A fixed piece of glass covering only half the shower allows full enjoyment of the scenery from every angle. Even the toilet is sleek, with its extended skirted trapway. Next to the toilet is a wall mounted hand-held spray for the ultimate in personal hygiene.
