One Home, Three Bathrooms
Three bathrooms were renovated in this Cambridge, Mass., home – the children’s, master and guest bath. For the children’s bath, shown here, contractor Julie Palmer of Cambridge, Mass.-based Charlie Allen Renovations and architect Michael Szalaji of Boston-based On the Boards Design made sure to include a secluded shower for the preteens’ growing need for privacy.
“It was important to the homeowners that the children’s bathroom design not feel too young or childlike, but instead have lasting appeal and a timeless sophistication,” said Szalaji.
When they are enjoying the nearby recreation room, the family uses their third–floor bath, and the bathroom also receives use from visitors staying in the two third-floor guest bedrooms. For this reason, the homeowners wanted the room to be as well done as the master and the children’s bathrooms.
In the expansive walk-in shower, located at the far end of the bathroom, the team introduced elegant off-white subway tile as well as two cheerful tile designs.
“At more than 5 feet long and almost 3 feet wide, the new walk-in shower is inviting and spacious,” said Palmer.
The glass shower door lets light in while also providing privacy with a translucent band across the front.
