RETHINKING THE MASTER BATH MECHANICS

SOURCES

According to the designer, the former master bath was huge, so he divided
it up into two bathrooms - a master and a bathroom for one of the client's
sons. He replaced the cumbersome 80s Jacuzzi tub with a more appropriateto-the-space freestanding clawfoot model and enlarged the shower and
vanity areas.
"The previous configuration, which only included one sink, was never
designed for today's living," he added. "We chose fixtures and colors for an
old-world feel and made the bathroom feel more spacious."
The new light gray-toned master now features double sinks and a wider
vanity, porcelain floor tile that replicates marble, quartzite countertops and
medicine cabinets for additional storage. The bathtub is the highlight of the
space and inspired Thelen to incorporate applied moldings and decorative
sconces in that area.
"I wanted the master to be very pretty, warm and inviting," he added.

MAKING A POWDER ROOM PICTURE PERFECT

According to Thelen, this project began with the selection of the dark ceramic
flooring tile; he and his client were both inspired by the pattern with the matte
and shiny finish combo. The elements he chose were minimal on purpose -
from the glass legs and exposed plumbing on the vanity to the all-black look
of the entire space. The high-gloss lacquer paint finish required six coats on
super smooth walls, and the black and white window shade was custom made
by Urban Workroom and features Duralee fabric.

RIGHT The powder bath's
evolution to the black palette
and minimalist fi tures was
decided once the ceramic

Kibak Collection in the Kasbah
pattern from Ann Sacks.

"The powder
room is a little
jewel box; I
exhort people to
make the most
of their space,
especially when
it's small. I love
the details - I've
never said no to
Lucite, and the
Lucite vanity
makes the sink
look like it's
floating."

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES

"Doing plumbing in a high-rise is tricky," said Thelen, "we could not move
things just anywhere we wanted."
For the kitchen, he and his team had to keep the sink where it was and were
limited with coming up with a design to work in the already small space.They
used the same water lines and drain from the previous layout but relocated
them a few feet. They had to move and then rebuild the old plaster walls.
Originally, they wanted to include a paneled refrigerator, but it was going
to be too small for the building's freight elevator. The only other option was
to rent a crane for $2,500 and get a permit to close down the street, so they
opted for a non-paneled model.
Before renovations began, there was a laundry room and small bath at
the front of the apartment that the client wanted to turn into the powder
room and then add a small bathroom for her other son. Because of this new
location and the concrete floors, they raised the bathroom up one step to
accommodate the drain lines, as cutting into the concrete was not an option.
"We overcame these challenges by hiring a plumbing crew that could assess
what kind of engineering was capable after demolition," said Thelen. "The
result is a project that exceeded my client's expectations."
