sunny bathroom with white windows and cabinetry

If a sunroom and a bathroom had a baby this would be it.

This master bathroom addition was built above the sunroom. It honors the home’s classic 20th-century style with era-specific details and architectural continuity. Six double-hung windows bathe the room in natural light, which is amplified by the mirror above the sink. The framed inset cabinets, painted white, are typical of homes built during this period. And the apothecary cabinet was tailored to fit a stack of fluffy white towels.

Tub on a Rug

The tile rug with a black marble border is a focal point. The sculpted top edge of the tub captures the spirit of an old-fashioned clawfoot tub.

Patterns, textures, and accent colors add interest; while repetition creates harmony.

Stylish Shower

The shower curb matches the vanity top and backsplash. The soft grey repeats in both the large format subway tile and the vanity top.

The teak tub shelf and shower bench adds a dash of organic warmth to the room.

Up-cycled Door

The solid panel door was salvaged from the attic and restored. It’s the perfect connection between the old and the new.

Exterior Before & After

Move the slider to see the transformation.

Before

Our client wanted to preserve the upstairs fireplace so we built the new bathroom around the chimney

After

The windows are a key element in this design. Without them, the addition would look awkward from the street.

Architectural Continuity

The architectural details – windows, roof, siding, trim, soffits, fascia, and gutters – create continuity and balance. So the addition blends seamlessly with the original structure.
