Style Watch: Contemporary Baths

16 May
Style Watch: Contemporary Baths
Sleek, sophisticated, and contemporary describe these baths. Note the minimal use of accessories and the total absence of clutter.
Where Ocean Meets Sand

Where Ocean Meets Sand

A large central skylight and wide rectangular windows capture enough sun to fill the room with light. On the walls, marble slabs wrap the room in the color of warm sand. Flooring tiles have an iridescent shimmer that looks a bit like ocean water in sunlight.

Twist of Lime for a Bath

Twist of Lime for a Bath

Bath adornments are kept to a minimum, allowing the natural materials and clean lines to speak for themselves. Limestone tiles cover the ledge wall and floor; a limestone slab tops the vanity. Undermounting the sink and tub keeps the attention on the surface materials.

From Sun Porch to Master Bath

From Sun Porch to Master Bath

A porch adjacent to the master bedroom was converted, adding a much-needed second bathroom to the home. A low concrete ledge installed under the windows tops new built-ins. On it sit two tall sinks that started life as Asian bowls, now drilled for a drain by a lamp maker.

The Spa Treatment

The Spa Treatment

Spacious and minimalist, this master bath is designed to be a sea of tranquility. A glass block window in the oversize shower assures privacy and lots of natural light. Overhead a large "rainfall" showerhead offers a luxurious soaking.

Simply Shapely Bath

Simply Shapely Bath

Though the watchword of contemporary style is simplicity, it doesn’t have to be stark. This bath space seems to spring up in a gleeful mix of curves and lines, freeform shapes, and warm wood cabinetry, as light fills the room bouncing from skylights to mirrors.

Sea of Glass

Sea of Glass

Mosaic tiles in two soft shades of blue-green give this updated 1950s bath the look of ocean water. Underfoot a terrazzo floor shows off specks of aqua. Long horizontal windows on three walls infuse the space with light but allow for total privacy.

Shower with A View

Shower with a View

The bathtub was placed near the windows and is accessible by stepping through the shower area. A half-wall of glass separates the shower from the vanity space to keep water in the "wet" area of the room.

Clean Living

Clean Living Bath

Wall-hung sinks beside built-in drawers and below a ledge offer separate grooming spaces and leave a sleek profile. The windows near the tub and shower deliver light without privacy concerns.

By the Fire; In the Tub

By the Fire; In the Tub

The elements of this grand bath each include impressive proportions. From the tall windows to the wall of mirrors, from the granite tub decking to the raised fireplace, this is a space to relax in pampered comfort.

Mixed Media Bath

Mixed Media Bath

This long vanity includes separate sinks as well as a makeup station installed at a lower counter height. The room incorporates a mix of surfaces: concrete sinks, colorful mosaic-tile countertops, bird’s-eye maple cabinetry, and a mirrored wall.

Asian-Influenced Bath

Asian-Influenced Bath

A custom console-style teak vanity supports a wide sink that integrates level surfaces and curved lines. Open shelving keeps towels and accessories close at hand and cleverly avoids the boxy appearance of a traditional vanity.
