Project Notes
Home & Design January 2010 Drawing Board (Bahr)

1. DETAILS: Tired of their small, mundane bathroom, a Virginia couple turned to Michael Nash Custom Kitchens &. Homes to create a larger, more luxurious space. "The existing bathroom did not have the area they wanted," says company CEO and president Sonny Nazemian. "They also wanted a very large shower and they wanted the tub to be raised for a dramatic effect."
2. CHALLENGES: Space was very limited. Nazemian increased the area by tearing down a wall to incorporate what was a hall closet into the bathroom. The reconfigured plan created enough space for a shower for two, a streamlined, kidney-shaped Kohler tub and a separate commode area. Enlarged windows bathe the room in natural light.
3. MATERIALS: The designer tiled the entire bathroom and shower in Empress Green marble; countertops and a custom tub surround were cut from matching marble slabs. The shower features both a rain shower and hand-held spray. Glass blocks on the windows and in the commode area provide privacy while letting in plenty of light.
