W. 17th St. Bath Remodel

This quaint bungalow in the Heights boasts a newly remodeled hall bath that sings of times past and new. An elegant pedestal sink with ample side counters and storage below preserves precious floor space. Other eye-catching elements include the beaded frame mirror, train rack for extra towels, and a period-perfect cross-handled faucet, all in a gleaming brushed nickel finish.

This close-up highlights the repetition of shapes to unify the mirror, sconces, train rack and curved shower rod in a story of times past and present. Soothing blue-greens play gently with white wainscot and plumbing fixtures, augmented by the brushed nickel metal finish. A double towel rack can be seen reflected in this stunning mirror.

Typical as a border in the floor might be for a traditional bathroom, the delight here is found in the use of coordinating 1″ glass mosaic tiles to form the border in this subway-tiled floor. Wall color and mosaic accents in the shower help to pull the palette together.

This crisp, clean view is the first you see of this bathroom, where shampoo niches are bordered by linear glass mosaic tile and repeated around the perimeter of the shower at eye level for maximum effect. Glass accents in the floor continue the color scheme.
