As promised, we are posting photos of the second Minimalist 2 bathroom in Chelsea.  Compared to the first Chelsea Minimalist 2, this one looks quite different, although there are many similarities.  We used the same fixtures, finishes and accessories for both.  The sizes are also similar.  What makes the difference is the window location.  In the first bathroom the window is in the shower.  In this second bathroom, the window is above the toilet, and our blue tile accent wall extends all the way up and wraps inside of the window opening.  We chose a large mirror above the sink to counter-balance the size of the window opening.

A few blocks away from the Minimalist 2 bathrooms in Chelsea we are currently building a Minimalist 1 bathroom.  Again, the bathroom is very small, so we had to make some modifications to the Basic Design.  Currently the rough plumbing is completed, the waterproofing and tile is installed.  Shortly the plumber will mount the bathroom fixtures, the millworker will place the mirrors above the accent wall and the electrician will take care of the lighting.

The black accent wall is prepared to receive the wall mounted washbasin.

The wall above the washbasin is framed for a mirrored niche.

In this bathroom the accent wall was designed to make a 90 degree turn and extend under the window. This is where the wall-hung toilet will be mounted.

The glass shower partition is already installed.

We used a matching stone slab at the top of the shower curb to complement the porcelain tile. The linear drain is visible in the background.

We created a ledge to protect the steam pipe from direct contact with water. The ledge will also be useful for placing shampoo and soap.

We are looking forward to posting images of the completed bathroom in a few weeks!
