K Street Master Bathroom & Closet Redesign

Darlene Nicolau custom designed and project managed this master bathroom and closet redesign. Before the redesign this small space was dark, extremely dated and inefficient in terms of layout and storage capacity.

The functional goal of the redesign was to create an open, bright and efficient floor plan, while increasing storage capacity. Aesthetically, Darlene applied an enduring and classic approach to this modern redesign.

By gutting the existing bathroom, which included the removal of two partition walls, a dormant shower stall and bathtub and a dated vanity, enough space was gained to incorporate a large custom, walk-in shower, a larger custom double vanity and linen storage. Traditional swing doors were replaced with sliding doors to further increase the efficiency of the floor plan. The original closet system was also removed to make way for a custom closet design that uses every square inch of this tiny walk-in closet’s storage capacity.

To brighten the space and evoke a modern design sensibility, a new lighting plan featuring dimmable, LED light fixtures was employed and complemented by a neutral, high contrast color scheme.

Other notable elements, whose clean lines and linear forms resonant classic and modern design, include a linear tile configuration on the shower and floors, and angular, chrome plumbing fixtures and hardware.

As a finishing touch, floating, walnut shelving and a teak shower-bench provide warmth and tie in to similar wood tones throughout the home, creating continuity with the rest of the house.
