Before & After: A Modern Bathroom Update in the West Village

You may have seen the kitchen in this West Village apartment, which got a modern update courtesy of designer Carly Yates. One of the apartment's bathrooms also got a much-needed facelift. Check out the transformation after the jump.

This bathroom renovation is all about the details. Lots of clever choices keep the room spacious, modern, and very functional. From Carly:

The large and light feeling of the bathroom was achieved by wall mounted fixtures that allow the tile to flow underneath. That tile then continues into the shower and up the wall with curves rather than right angles. The single drain, double faucet Duravit sink creates dual function while saving space and the plumbing cost of creating two drains. Since the sink lacks on work surface, a custom teak island was design to secure in the center of the sink. When not in use it slides easily into a niche in the custom vanity drawer below.

To keep the flow of the tile from wall to floor consistent, a texture was needed on the slick surfaced tile on the shower floor. This was done by a custom sand blasting to 6sqft of the tile that provided the necessary texture without penetrating the tile's protective glaze.

As in most NYC spaces we needed to bring as many functions together in one space as possible. In the linen cabinet a discreet place for the client's fury friend to use the facilities was incorporated, with an easy pull drawer for cleaning.

Nice job, Carly! Thanks for sharing!
