Bathroom Design Ideas with Glass Benchtops
Historic versions of the original architect’s drawings were found in the Boston Public Library. This allowed original concepts to be reinterpreted for the new design. In the main living space, bamboo floors cascade down the stair, and provide a light contrast to rich mahogany. Mahogany details link each floor by connecting handrail to mantelpiece to cabinets. We researched ship and train bathrooms to figure out how to insert a full bath in this tiny space. Here the body became a unit of measure. The addition of translucent laminated glass walls encloses the room. The glass walls provide privacy, but keep the adjacent bedroom open.

ASID Design Excellence First Place Residential – Kitchen and Bathroom: Michael Merrill Design Studio was approached three years ago by the homeowner to redesign her kitchen. Although she was dissatisfied with some aspects of her home, she still loved it dearly. As we discovered her passion for design, we began to rework her entire home--room by room, top to bottom.
Handy cubbyholes built in to the wall next to the shower make a handy place to stick your towels for when you get out.
This remodeled bathroom now serves as powder room for the kitchen/family room and a guest bath adjacent to the media room with its pull-down Murphy bed. Since the bathroom opens directly off the family room, we created a small entry with planter and low views to the garden beyond. The shower now features a deck of ironwood, smooth-trowel plaster walls and an enclosure made of 3-form recycle resin panels with embedded reeds. The space is flooded with natural light from the new skylight above.

A small bathroom with a shower over the bath and a double vanity with fusion formed glass basins. The towel rail is at the end of the bath away from the shower. This is a good option in a small bathroom.
