Mix Master…An Eclectic Colonial Home Gets a Contemporary Bath

2010: The master bath has never had looked so good. Neutral colors are often underestimated but when combined with expertise they can pack the perfect visual punch as they do in this Old Saybrook bathroom remodel.

Covenant Kitchens & Baths, Inc. in Westbrook designed this space utilizing a blend of traditional and contemporary materials. Honed Calcutta Gold marble on the floor and burled maple doors on the vanity are typically associated with more traditional spaces but they work amazingly well with the more contemporary style elements of Caesarstone countertops and tub deck along with concentric rectangular natural stone tiles on the shower wall. Deep beige walls provide a dramatic backdrop for the swirling tans and whites of the stone while a burst of color comes into the space through the use of accessories. Blue towels and burgundy accents can add some spice or changing to greens and aqua tones for spring, the rich marble and stone tile accents work equally well with a variety of colors. A skylight over the jetted tub keeps the room bathed in light.

The footprint of the room did not change, the room was gutted and the existing bathtub was reused for the remodel. Changes included the addition of a marble tub front and quartz deck giving the bath a brand new attitude. Frameless glass shower doors showcase the tiled shower wall as the focal point of the space while state of the art shower fixtures give a boost the functional side of the room.

The "Before and After" photos tell the story...Seeing is believing!

“Lately it seems there is a trend toward contemporary baths in more traditional style homes”, says Gerard Ciccarello, owner and designer at Covenant Kitchens & Baths, Inc. “Clean lines, spa, relaxing and easy to clean are the buzz words we hear when we ask for our client’s wish lists for design. Contemporary bathrooms fit these prerequisites and offer the homeowner a fresh look”

That is an understatement, this is a fresh look indeed.
