When a past client of ours called wanting a master bathroom addition on her Brookside tudor there was only one thing to do: call Dan Wessel. Dan, our longtime architect partner, is the master of designing new spaces to look and feel as though they belonged to the house from the very beginning.
So it was no surprise when the project finished that all the neighbors were saying the same thing: “The house looks better than it did before!” “It looks like it was meant to be!
And while the inside certainly blends beautifully with the 1930’s architecture as well, it’s a vast improvement over the bathroom amenities of the 1930s!
Heated marble tile wash the floors in a bright warmth, while sunlight pours through the shuttered new windows. Custom-made walnut vanities anchor the space while clean white quartz countertops bring practicality and give the eye a resting spot.
Wanting a sleek look, our client chose to forgo crown molding, letting the marble pencil tile add all the visual appeal on top of the tiled wainscotting.
In addition to adding this master bath, Dan squeezed in a generously sized master closet.
And beneath it all he also managed to design another bathroom -similarly outfitted, though much smaller – for the home’s first floor guest bedroom! Using all the same materials, we built a charming little full bathroom, wrapped in marble and featuring another stunning walnut vanity.
