An ancient European villa, with brick walls, was modified to meet modern day needs with a floor-to-ceiling glass wall bathroom. This space is ideal for someone living alone. However, there are semi-sheer curtains that can be drawn across both glass walls to provide privacy. The bath has a claw foot tub, painted classic black, that’s filled by a floor mounted faucet. The single vessel sink mounted on a console table turned vanity has a deck-mounted modern faucet. The table has a handy lower shelf and its graceful sabre legs are a distraction from the exposed fittings. An antique crystal chandelier adds a touch of sparkle to the room. This bathroom retrofit is all about contrast. Old, rough and hard vs new, smooth and soft. While the overall look from this side of the glass makes me think of window shopping, I’d have to wonder if, from the inside, it would give a user the feeling of being on display. On a practical note, with glass walls the bathroom window allows natural light into the adjacent bedroom as well.
