Project: Kingsland Bungalow
Completed: Aug 2015
Because this is our home, it was difficult to decide on materials and colours. It’s easy to make suggestions to others and harder to know what you’d want to live with for years! But we prevailed, and happily so.
Site-finished ipé floors were used throughout the main floor and on the stairs. It was finished with low luster Rubio oil, which we also used on all the wood cabinetry and interior doors. We are quite pleased with its natural, warm look. Oh, and I shouldn’t forget to mention that our installers did a fine job of the herringbone in the library area.
Oversized tile seems to be a recurring theme in our home, especially the 24 x 48 format used in the laundry room. What do you think? The guest bathroom tile demonstrates the effect of a bold color against a neutral background.
The steam shower is our piéce-de-resistance. We’ve incorporated two rain head showers, a stand-alone tub, heated floors, benches and walls. Thanks to Schluter waterproofing systems and barrier free entry, this spa is thoroughly waterproofed and will probably outlast its occupants.
