By freeing up this space, Jessica and her team were able to expand the shower and add a large window. This lead to allowing natural light to pour into the room. They created stylish, functional storage options by installing custom cabinets made from naturally stained white oak. Inside, they installed outlets, charging stations, and pull-out storage for brushes, hair dryers and other accessories. The walls are a concrete finish. Which is a subtle, interesting backdrop for the entire room.

The Tile Selection

The Primary Bath

The real star of the primary bathroom is the tile selection. The designers sourced hand-made imported tile from Austin’s own Clay Imports for the shower walls and a triple hexagon porcelain for the bathroom floor. For an unconventional design, they decided to lay the shower wall tiles in a double herringbone pattern to contrast a large, dramatic black hexagon pattern on the bathroom floor. Then, they accented the black tiling with two black barn doors at the bathroom’s entrance, which at a distance, meets with the flooring and creates satisfying cohesion throughout the room.

The Guest Bath

While the guest bathroom is smaller, it is definitely not lacking in drama. Urbane Design chose natural Brazilian black slate tile for the floor and triangular tiles 

for the shower—from Clay Imports. The cabinets are stained white oak topped with a gray quartz vanity. Black fixtures add contrast to the countertops, while the abstract wallpaper, flown in from the UK, in various shades of blue bring dramatic visual interest. They finished off the entire bathroom with an organically-shaped brass mirror that adds just the right element of surprise and mix of metals.

With their remodeled primary and guest bathroom, the homeowner is able to begin and end their day in the most functional room in the home. The unique style brought to these spaces are a display of their vibrant personalities to all who enter their home.
