In Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights, this townhouse by Etelamaki Architecture has a spa-like bathroom with mixed materials that include a slate wall behind the double sinks, which are suspended on a teak vanity. The freestanding tub sits on a raised wooden bed that continues up the wall behind it.
Say it with sleepers. This bench, flooring and console are reminiscent of satisfyingly chunky-feeling reclaimed railway sleepers, but with a sleeker finish. When properly treated, rich boards can retain their beauty without warping or staining. Sensibly, though, this design incorporates tiles in a similar format for areas that will get plenty of wet footprints.
Complement a modern vanity with a hand-plastered backsplash made to mimic concrete. Troweling gray plaster created this handcrafted look; a strip of stainless steel provides protection. Pair with pops of green for a serene mix of earthy and industrial.
A concrete countertop and stainless-steel backsplash provide a contemporary feel to this small space.
