Two Bathrooms to Accommodate a Family on Different Schedules

For a young family of four in Oakland’s Redwood Heights neighborhood, we remodeled and enlarged one bathroom and created a second bathroom at the rear of an existing garage. This family of four was outgrowing their home but loved their neighborhood. They needed a larger bathroom and also needed a second bath on a different level to accommodate the fact that the mother gets ready for work hours before the others usually get out of bed. For the hard-working Mom, we created a new bathroom on the garage level, with luxurious finishes and fixtures to reward her for being the primary breadwinner in the family. Based on a circle/bubble theme we created a feature wall of circular tiles from Porcelanosa in the shower and a round Electric Mirror at the vanity. Other luxury features of the downstairs bath include a Fanini MilanoSlim shower system, floating lacquer vanity, and custom built-in cabinets. For the upstairs bathroom, we enlarged the room by borrowing space from the adjacent closets. Features include a rectangular Electric Mirror, custom vanity cabinets, a wall-hung Duravit toilet, and glass finger tiles.
