SMALL BUT MIGHTY

Ottawa Business Journal - Ottawa at Home - - HOME RENO BEFORE + AFTER -

When cre­at­ing this award-win­ning small bath­room, Paul Denys of Denys Builds De­sign says that the plans were driven both by the client’s wishes and the need to dis­till ev­ery­thing down to the bare essence. The shower, for ex­am­ple, is with­out a door or curb and the room is sloped to­ward the drain. Tight quar­ters also meant that they were able to forego the built-in tiled niche for soap in the orig­i­nal de­sign once they re­al­ized all the toi­letries stored in the cabi­net draw­ers could be reached from the shower. The heated floor en­sured that any small pud­dles would dry within the hour. A full-width mir­ror and vaulted ceil­ing lend a feel­ing of spa­cious­ness, along with the monochro­matic colour palate and stream­lined coun­ters and fix­tures.
