The loss of this guest home was a devastation to this family in Lynwood, California, so we wanted to make their new guest house as comforting as possible. Originally this guest house had a sauna and some niche spaces, with swing out doors that took up the small floor space it had to offer, so we streamlined the area to give it us much usable space as possible. We replaced the front door with a new 6 foot slider with a screen and a lock for privacy and safety. Added a wall of closet closing where the sauna once was, that is closed in with new six panel sliding doors, and a matching pocket door for the restroom. New recessed lighting, a new dual function air conditioning and heating unit fill the main room of the home. In the bathroom we created storage with a linen cupboard and some shelving, and utilized a quartz counter top to match the vanity. The vanity is made of that same quartz that mimics Carrera marble, with a square edge profile for a contemporary feel. With only a 16” space to work with we placed a small undermount sink, and a corner mounted chrome faucet, which tops an accented, custom built navy blue cabinet. The 3’x3’ shower fits snugly in the corner of the room and offers a wall mounted rain shower head by Moen, also in chrome. A wall niche filled with blue hexagon glass tile adds usable space, with a 2”x2” mosaic porcelain tile on the floor that has the look of calacatta marble. A simple brick pattern was used to line the walls of the shower for simplicity in a small space. To finish the area and make the rooms flow, we utilized a waterproof laminate that has a wonderful warm tone, and looks like a 7 inch hard wood plank flooring. All in all, this space, although there was loss, is now better than it had ever been, and is a great new guest home for this family.
