Recently, Capitol Design was retained to provide design and specifications for a master bath remodel in the North West Hills of Austin. This initial rendering shows the proposed design.
This bath presented quite a challenge in that the vaulted ceiling soared to a height of 11′ in a room only 12′ wide. The scale of the room was way off. Soffits were added in an attempt to control the scale but only added to the chaos.
The proposed plan moves the toilet room to the outside wall, enlarging the shower, surrounding it completely by glass, and providing separate his and her vanities.
The ceiling was tamed by a combination of a tray ceiling at 9′ and reworking the tunnel of the existing skylight to direct the light downward to the freestanding tub.
Finally, a cool palette of whites and grays were chosen to calm the room and horizontally expand the space.
