A Single Slab of Marble Is Used 5 Different Ways in This Teen Bathroom
When kids hit their teenage years, suddenly half their time is spent in the bathroom. So this space ultimately needs to be hardworking, as Emily Brown of Emily Lauren Interiors recently learned on a project for a client in Austin who has two teens sharing one formerly teeny (and formerly very 1980s) bathroom. “Having multiple people in there was so tricky,” recalls Brown.
For starters, when they entered the 50-square-foot space, they were greeted by an alcove tub and, to the left, a glass block-wall partition. Directly behind the divider was a minuscule, not-up-to-code toilet and corner sink. Brown worked with female-owned firm Skelly Build to bump out the exterior wall of the second-story area by 3 feet and 8 inches, almost doubling the room’s size to 86 square feet. What she was left with was the opportunity for a separate tub and shower and a double vanity with loads of storage for hair gel, nail polish, razor blades—you name it.
