Project Spotlight: A Serene & Sophisticated Master Bath

For the master bath of this Allenhurst home, the homeowners wanted a space that was “tranquil, clean and simple.”

While the master bathroom may be the most simple of all the bathrooms in terms of the design, it was actually the most difficult to execute. The homeowners wanted a serene, clean escape, but needed ample storage and wanted to incorporate a slightly more luxurious feel. Alongside the homeowner Daniella, the designers looked through many different tile options, finally settling on Bianco Dolomiti – Direto polished marble. They all loved the bright white background with the slight variation and veining, which gave it more character than a traditional Thassos. The designers opted to use 12 x 24 tiles to create a focus wall behind the vanity, which created the perfect backdrop for the custom-made floating vanity, medicine cabinets, wall mounted faucets and sconces.

The designers loved the Bianco Dolomiti – Direto marble in a horizontal pattern because the tile “becomes almost like a watercolor design with the natural marble veining. The lines of the ocean are reflected in the Dolomiti.”

The designers originally wanted the floor to be cement, but when they saw the Area grey porcelain tile installed at the NEMO Tile Red Bank showroom, they knew it would be perfect. They opted for the larger 48 x 48 tiles to minimize the number of seams, which maintains the focus on the beautiful Bianco Dolomiti – Direto marble.

The shower and toilet are separated into their own spaces on opposite sides of the room while the frosted glass doors ensure privacy.  In the shower area, the Bianco Dolomiti – Direto marble surrounds you on all walls, and they used a smaller 3×3 mosaic made of the same marble for the shower floor.
