Problem & Concept StatementsProblem Statement: Concept Statement:• Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Smith recently • As the designer, I will take came to me asking for design help, everything Mr. and Mrs. Smith explaining that the second floor mentioned in our meetings into bathroom of their home was careful consideration to create a outdated and too small. Mrs. Smith lavish, French-inspired, bathroom. I mentioned a lack of closet and will create a new floor plan which storage space for bath towels, will expand the square footage of linens, and her extensive wardrobe the space, creating enough room and shoe collection.

The the space while the other pieces of couple would prefer a neutral furniture, paint colours, and colour palette with metallic accessories accentuate its French details and a bold focal point. Empire styling.
Solution Statement• Because the Smiths stated their bathroom was too small and didn’t have enough space for storage, I chose to expand outward to give them a greater amount of square footage. I added a wall to create a semi-enclosed closet with a seating area, which consists of a simple chair and small side table. For privacy purposes, the high tank toilet I selected, will also be located in a semi- enclosed section of the room. To keep the style of the furnishings consistent, I chose to incorporate a claw foot bathtub, which will double as a shower, into the space. The flooring I selected is a hard body porcelain tile which features a realistic wood grain finish. I also utilized four small area rugs to add some extra texture and comfort to the floor. The focal point of the entire space is a red, French Empire-inspired, vanity that features a hand- painted oriental scene and gold accents. The countertop of the vanity is a rich dark marble with creamy golden veins. The vanity also includes an antiqued brass sink and faucet. The lighting fixtures I chose will accentuate the gold accents and hand-painted scene on the face of the vanity while providing light to the space. The seating area inside the closet will feature two panels of wallpaper to add texture to the space. An assortment of woven baskets will be added to the shelves for storing towels and other bathroom accessories.
