5 NYC Bathroom Renovations 

 

Grey Bathroom in a Chelsea Loft

This first bathroom is in a Loft in Chelsea. The owners wanted to add a second bathroom and renovate the master bath. This grey bathroom is the master. We designed it to be a generally simple modern grey bathroom. The tiles are all porcelain on the walls and floors.

The vanity and bathroom are both wall mounted which is a more modern look but also makes for a more convenience for cleaning. Wall mounted toilets have another convenience in renovations as they do not require a drain int he floor which allows for more freedom in their location.

Concrete Bathroom in the Financial District

This next bathroom is a bit more unique in that it is a concrete bathroom. the walls and floors are both a concrete finish. This is a very modern and industrial bathroom design.

The concrete walls are monolithic without any seems, this makes for a very minimalist yet textural feel. The concrete in the bathroom should be smooth whereas in the rest of this concrete apartment we used much more textured concrete.

As an architect, I study design and construction, but these are complicated and quite involved issues. Every project is different and must be assessed on its own unique characteristics. This post does not assume to cover every possible issue or condition, but provide a general overview of the topic.
