She’s back! This is another guest blog from the wonderful Christen Joy Homes. In this post, Christen gets into what went into the bathroom at U32. Here’s what she had to say about it:
“As you may have heard, U32’s second building is under construction. In my blog series on U32, I’m giving you a sneak peek of what’s to come!
The U32 complex is a warm and inviting space that’s designed to feel funand different. I’m working with the Roers team to create a timeless look with a modern twist and we’re currently nailing down the design and aesthetics of the units, lounge, common bathroom, yoga studio, exercise room, and study rooms.
Since we’ve already walked through the units (aka your potential newhome), in this post, we’re going to check out the common area bathroom that can be used when guests are over enjoying the fabulous lounge!
Let’s have a look at the bathroom design.
The common area bathroom is a single bathroom that keeps the look and feel of the lounge, so we were shooting for the vintage, cigar room vibe.
I always love a bathroom project as you can infuse so much character into such a small space! So many people think of a bathroom strictly from a functional point of view, but just because it’s functional doesn’t mean it can’t also be intriguing.
The design plans outlined below are what I submitted as my proposal, so the final selections may have some minor differences.
For the floor, I decided to go with tiled flooring that pulls in the wood tones from the lounge, as well as the moody blue.
I drew that amazing moody blue into the walls using a dark, glossy navy subway tile that glistens when you move— gotta love that high gloss effect. I’m a big fan of subway tiles because I feel they are perfect in any bathroom space. They’re timeless, clean, and crisp looking, while still feelingmodern and fresh.
To finish off the walls, I selected in Grizzle Gray paint that echoes the gray in the flooring to ensure a cohesive feel.
Now, you may not think the toilet matters, but I see no reason not to ensure it matches the overall vibe of the room. The one I chose mimics the look and feel of the rest of the space by having the rectangle details from top to bottom.
Similar to the lounge, I chose to go with a brass finish on the sink fixture, the mirror, and lighting to complete the look. This added both some visual interest and a real wow factor.
All tied together, we’re making a big statement in a small space.
The common bathroom is sure to be one that your visitors will want to pop into before heading out of U32’s second building!
In my next post, I’ll be previewing the fitness room at U32.
Stay tuned for more blogs around my work with Roers and on U32.
