By On Oct 05, 2018 Bathroom Design
The Ironworks Hotel Indianapolis is a new-build property that was designed with a 19th-century vibe. For the guest bathrooms, Sue Griffin, director of interior design at Hendricks Commercial Properties, which owns the property, wanted a spa-like experience with rain shower heads. To have a really a good rain shower head, you have to have good water pressure, she said. And we were fortunate with the new-build that we could make sure we had that ahead of time.
While working on the Mayfairs bathrooms, Jonsdottir did not want to move the buildings plumbing (a task that would be most difficult, she said), so she was faced with turning small 1920s-style bathrooms into something that that would appeal to modern guests. To make the spaces brighter, she clad the walls in all-white tile and then applied broken pieces of black tile to the wall in unique patterns.
The greatest challenge homeowners face in selecting a finish is trying to achieve visual appeal, durability and maintenance, all in a single tile or finish. While this is possible, its important to select a material that will not blow your budget. An excellent design tip while selecting tile is Keep it Classic, Accent with Popular. Often finishes are hot for a year or two and then fade as newer and more with-it finishes enter the market. Do not get carried away by a product that is trendy. Classic finishes, like wainscoting, are a hit in powder rooms. Wallpapers are making a comeback and are reasonable priced alternative finishes if you are willing to install them yourself.
