2013 Master Design Award
Modern Hall Bathroom Wins Master Design Award
Hall bathrooms might not always be the most stunning room in the home, but that didn’t stop Normandy Designer Chris Ebert from making one of his recent projects nothing short of just that. The new modern space kept the original footprint of the bathroom, with the toilet, two sinks and tub/shower combo in the same place.
“The size of the bathroom was a challenge because the homeowners wanted it to feel more spacious and minimalistic, yet retain the same amount of storage,” says Chris. “We took out the vanity that had stretched across the entire wall of the bathroom and opted for two modern, floating vanities. To make up for lost storage we incorporated a wall hung cabinet, creating a perfectly symmetric design.”
“A couple of my favorite aspects of the bathroom are the tile wall and the window we created there to allow natural light in, it’s a focal point that can be seen from the hallway and invites people to look into the space,” commented Chris. “Another notable element in the bathroom is the shower door; the homeowners wanted a glass door, but didn’t want a track that would make them uncomfortable while soaking in the tub. We included a tri-fold glass door that rolls on modern hardware for ease of closure while showering and negates the need for an obtrusive track.”
It was his ability to keep that footprint and still make such a remarkable transformation that won the project a Master Design Award from Professional Remodeler Magazine.
