Bathroom Remodel: From Dated Southwestern to Serene Minimalism

amazing_bathroomWhen a Cleveland couple saw this house, their imaginations ran wild … yet minimalist. Its original style was Southwestern, not to their modern tastes, but it had great bones. The renovation, designed by architect Ryan Duebber, included a bathroom that inspires moments of Zen (in fact, a wall-mounted TV near the tub means the homeowners can enjoy that segment of The Daily Show while taking a soak).Natural materials, a simplified color scheme with strong textural contrasts, an extended vaulted ceiling, more storage and a new layout add up to a minimalist retreat designed for two. Sneak a little break from whatever you’re working on and let this bathroom daydream take you away.Bathroom at a Glance

The existing vaulted ceiling and large window make the room feel spacious, which Duebber enhanced with a minimalist approach and a thoughtful layout.He made the most of the big view by placing the freestanding bathtub in front of the window.

The bathtub sits on a platform made of Brazilian massaranduba wood. “The platform elevates the tub so that they can enjoy the view, and creates a moment of contrast between the wood and stone,” Duebber says. Massaranduba is used for outdoor decking and can stand up to water splashing over the sides.
