I had the pleasure of working on a bathroom re-design for a church last month. It was a relatively small space but the client wanted to work on changing the dimensions while also creating a nice relaxing environment. The directive I received was to create a bathroom that was similar in feel to a Nordstrom’s bathroom. These are the inspiration images the client provided:
The initial layout had two small bathrooms. Before I came on to the project, the pastor and crew came up with this new layout.
Instead of having a door that led to two industrial looking stalls, we decided to remove a wall and create floor-to-ceiling dividers between the toilets. This created a little more space in the entryway while also giving a more high-end look to the functional part of the space. I then created a seating area across from the vanity to create a more “lounge feel” similar to the inspiration images.
For finishes, the budget was tight but we were able to find travertine tiles at a great deal. We will use the travertine on the floors and up the walls with a decorative mosaic as a chair rail of sorts to break up some of the travertine. Here is a rendering of the space:
The client didn’t love the turquoise color and we haven’t picked a sofa/loveseat yet but the construction work is finished and the tile is being installed. I’ll post real pictures when it’s all done!
Have a great weekend!!
