What I’m Working On: Ensuite Luxe Details
There’s a lot of work and planning to achieve a luxurious bathroom in a limited space. The key is, making sure every detail visually interesting. Plus, designing cabinetry and choosing fixtures in the appropriate scale is vital, and I always try to design a smaller space so sight lines aren’t blocked. For this ensuite, we opened up segragated water closet and added a frosted glass panel for a bit of privacy. The shower has as much glass as possible to maximize the natural light. And, not wanting to interrupt the beautiful marble slabs in the shower with shelving, we added a half wall with a storage niche. To make it seamless looking, we also cladded the wall and niche entirely with marble. Luxurious! I won’t show you the whole room now since it isn’t completely finished. I still have to layer it with art, accessories and fluffy towels. In the meantime, here are a few close ups with some of the details that make this ensuite special. We had a tiled, flush shower drain installed. It looks perfect with the zero threshold shower floor.
