The Stunning Bathroom Feature HGTV's Erin Napier Swears By
During an episode of HGTV’s popular series "Home Town," a homeowner asked celebrity designer Erin Napier for a modern and contemporary look for his 1970s home remodel.
One of the ways Napier accomplished this goal was by incorporating a waterfall edge for the tiling in the home’s bathroom, which instantly brings the space into the 21st century.
Typically found in kitchens, waterfall edge refers to a format that continues the chosen material over an edge without any separation or trim.
In the episode, large hexagonal tiles in a charcoal gray wrap around the bathroom’s shower enclosure and onto the floor, creating a continuous, unbroken surface.
A similar dark stone on the vanity continues the look, broken by the vanity's wood beneath. The effect is a flowing dark gray river descending down the walls and onto the floors.
The design can be done with tile or stone material. Often seen in modern bathrooms and spa settings, its clean and modern look complements a feeling of minimalism and simplicity.
While the choice is a strong departure from her usual home projects, Napier explains in the episode that "it's just on the nose for this modernism look that he likes."
