A Simple Yet Sophisticated Space




The best part of this project was that the townhome was an empty canvas, as the client was not bringing any of her previous furniture and only a few pieces of artwork. After the first in-person meeting, everything for the first phase of the project was selected. The client also decided to include the master bedroom, master bathroom, and guest bedroom. The master bathroom was a long and narrow space with a large tub, although the client wanted a shower instead. Overall, the client wanted to keep the space open but simple with the tile. The challenge with adding the shower was that the door from the master bedroom opened into the room by the tub.


The client wanted a neutral colour palette of grays with an accent of blue-violet. There were several areas of the master bathroom that were changed, but as this was a townhome and it would eventually be rented again, the budget was kept conservative.

For this space, porcelain and quartz were incorporated with a marble look in a matte finish to keep it from being slippery when wet and worry-free of stains. All the tile was kept the same throughout the flooring and shower area, but a simple mosaic tile for the shower border was selected to add some accent. The cabinets were painted a darker gray while keeping the walls a lighter gray, and the accent of blue-violet was added through wall decor and accessories. A floating bench was included in the bathroom as both a piece for function and modern design. A barn door with glass was installed, giving the room a modern look and allowing for more light to fill the room. By replacing the swing door with a sliding door, the room now has more space and the glass allows for a view of the beautiful shower. This master bathroom is simple but sophisticated.
