A mid century bath in a ranch-style house gets an update with modern vanities and easy to reach storage.
A house built with windows tucked just under the roof line offers uninterrupted walls. That’s useful for updating a mid century bath. The western U.S., and especially Arizona, has an abundance of ranch style houses many with authentic 1950s elements like clerestory windows. Those high windows permit wall surfaces to be defined in interesting ways. This contemporary bath, in just such a house, gave a long uninterrupted bathroom wall special interest and richness by adding a panel of natural wood veneer. The section of wood paneling also serves as a room divider of sorts, helping to define the main vanity space from the bathing nook with its freestanding sculptural tub just one step up while acting as a transitional element — note robe hooks mounted on the paneling that extends into the nook. There’s a hint of an open shower in the area as well slightly reflected in the mirror.
The paneling also serves as the backdrop for a well-designed, spacious double floating vanity. Vanities without doors are especially handy for easy to reach storage, in this case bath towels. There is additional storage – behind closed Ikea frosted-glass aluminum doors on an opposite wall – reflected in the long mirror.
The vanity centers on the long mirror that lines up with the pair of oval vessel sinks. Those are mounted on top, which makes them relatively high and easy to use and Hangrohe’s luxe Starck line faucets are deck-mounted at an angle behind each sink. A pair of handsome sconces frame the mirror. Open, uncluttered bathrooms like this one offer a luxurious feeling of spaciousness, helped along by a neutral slate-gray floor. For some people, minimalism is a mood. For others, it’s a lifestyle.
