Stunning Bathroom in DC

Design by Meghan Browne & Jennifer Gilmer

At a little over 72 square feet, this master bath was not large and it lacked storage.
Originally, a small corner shower was crammed into one corner with the toilet beside it. The homeowners wanted to create an Asian-inspired oasis and sought to bring more
natural light into their master bedroom.

Building a custom door with panels of translucent glass, reminiscent of a shoji screen,
allows natural light to filter into the bedroom, even when it is closed. Barn door
hardware lets the door slide discretely out of sight behind a shallow dresser in the
bedroom, while preserving much-needed floor space in the bathroom.
A wide vanity is augmented by a shallow, tall cabinet across from the toilet to provide
ample storage. Two walls are clad in Crescent Sutra Black honed tile from Island Stone
for a dramatic 3D effect. A teak soaking tub and countertop, antique brass fixtures and
sculptural wall tiles add to the Zen-like aesthetic.

The home is tucked away on a hillside, surrounded by a garden reminiscent of a
Japanese tea garden. Renovations throughout the home have tastefully incorporated a
subtle Asian aesthetic such as tall black frame windows and doors in the living room
and a kitchen with a natural color palette and traditional Japanese cabinet hardware.
The master bathroom renovation continues with these homeowners Asian-inspired
design sense.
