The basis of this bathroom was the vanity unit, which is an attempt to capture the style of Paul Frankl's 'Skyscraper' furniture ideas. The vanity uses 2 of Frankl's Deco design ideas, that of asymetry of shape & the stepped skyscraper profiles, combined with his typical furniture colours. We've shown lots of design variations below for this bathroom. Some wall mirrors were used to accentuate the stepped skyscraper look. Bath panels were added to complete the look. These are the main elements that set the look of a bathroom, with the tiles. Other items such as WC, shower, towel rails, etc., compliment the overall look. You take this room 1 step further & use some of the black bathroom pieces, such as bath, WC, etc., shown on another page in this section
This is a very strong masculine Deco look, maybe not to everyone's taste. But that could be down to the strong pattern of the black & white floor tiles; substitue them for say Limestone tiles & it would soften the whole look. Or paint the furniture in white for a crisp minimalist look. We can also adapt the design anyway you want, and you can also choose any colour you want. The furniture can be painted in a single colour for a more refined neutral modern feel, while mainting the Deco look. Or it can be painted in any colour variations you like. As it is made to order any elements can be adapted to whatever you want.
Top row above; black vanity with handleless drawers on push catches. 3 different wall mirrors. Floor tiles removed for clarity. Middle row; same as top row but with floor tiles shown. Bottom row; Vanity shown in a combination of black & green, with matching mirror. The green colour was based on a Paul Frankl green he used for furniture.
You can take this strong visual Deco bathroom 1 step further with the use of black Deco sanitaryware, such as a black bath or wc, as shown above.
