A (bath)room with a view – Update

My bathroom project in the Hollywood Hills has been coming together nicely, I first mentioned this project a month ago here. Since then the composite wenge cabinetry and plumbing rough-ins were installed as well as the roughtop for the countertop. The contractor built the framing for the Jacuzzi tub and installed LED lighting below the vanity cabinet and above and below a built-out for a “floating” mirror above the vanity. Then our fabricator came to template for the under-mount tub deck, shower walls and vanity countertop with waterfall edge detail.

Last week the countertops were installed including the tub deck and marble slab shower wall. The slab was selected by my client and I from a stoneyard in Van Nuys. It is a statuary marble and the veining is incredible, like a work of art. The dark grey veining will tie in with the honed basalt tile that’s going on the bathroom and sunken shower floor as well as the vanity and side window wall. The white background of the stone coordinates with the Pure White Caesarstone we selected for the vanity and tub deck.

I helped my client decide the best positioning for the tub filler, hot and cold handles, hand shower and diverter control in the tub deck so the fabricator would know the exact locations for the drillings.

The tub deck was fabricated with four separate pieces of Pure White Caesarstone to create a “box” installation for the under-mounted tub. Our fabricator did a fantastic job, the corner is so square and barely rounded so that the seam is completely invisible.

The waterfall edge detail was installed last, the next step is to install the decorative hardware on the cabinets, the Caesarstone pieces into the shower and tub window, the basalt tile on the floor and two of the walls, the plumbing fixtures and the “floating” mirror. I’m so excited to see the room finished!
