149 Hall Bath
Christine Lefebvre Design’s goal for this bathroom redesign was to create an elegant, streamlined, and hardworking space that would feel as though it had always existed in the home. Design services included two-dimensional design drawings (floor plans and elevations); material and fixture selection including lighting, plumbing, vanity, countertop, flooring, hardware, tile, and paint; tile installation design; and budgeting.
This 55-square-foot space received a gut renovation, though locations of the plumbing fixtures and walls were left unchanged. A door that had previously separated the shower/toilet area from the vanity was removed, and the doorway was opened to the ceiling, to create better flow through the space and to make the room seem larger and more welcoming.
Christine Lefebvre Design designed the tile layout with a mix of field tile sizes. Our installation incorporated tile accessories (robe hooks, towel bar ends, and switch plate cover), base moldings, and radius trim for a completely custom tile installation. Radius trim and specialty tile pieces also played their part in the design of a seamless shower niche. Multiple handrails were specified for the shower/toilet area to make the space more accessible. A TRAX shower rod was mounted to the ceiling, with custom liner and shower curtain made to reach from ceiling to floor.
Christine Lefebvre Design changed the sink faucet from a standard deck-mount to a wall-mount, and incorporated it into an extra-high granite backsplash. This was done for aesthetic reasons and to help the homeowners keep clean the heavily-used sink. Granite for the countertop was fabricated from a remnant sourced from a local stoneyard. All plumbing fixtures are Kohler. The new flooring is gauged slate.
