Powder Rooms with Hidden Showers

Powder Rooms with Hidden Showers


For many, the Porsche 911 is the dream; but once they accept the reality of their four-door life, they may choose the four-door Macan Porsche coupe.

Some may long for a house in the south of France, but the reality of French home ownership may drive them to a vacation rental.

For many New Yorkers, the compromise centres around a proper powder room.

A proper powder room is for guests. It should be a special jewel box of design that provides a heightened and condensed version of the decoration of the apartment. But the reality in many Manhattan apartments is that often this “powder room” will also serve as a “full bathroom” including shower for a guest bedroom. Having a shower in a powder room instantly makes the powder feel much too intimate. One doesn’t wish to experience the family’s lotions and potions during a trip to the powder room.  A powder room should be a private space for the guest; a refuge.

Over the years, Rusk has developed and refined our ability to hide the shower behind a panelled wall and here we see three beautiful examples.

In the first, designer Kerry Joyce and architect Ann Macklin hid the shower in a wallpaper panelled room which completely hid the seams at the shower door. This hand-painted wallpaper grows across the room, making the passage into the shower even more hidden.

In the second example, Architect/designers Torsten Schlauserbach and Annie Lo hid their shower behind a simple panel in a minimalist home. Seeming to simply be another set of reveals, around the panel, the shower is not revealed until the knowing guest pulls at the reveal.

In the third example, Kerry Joyce hides the shower behind faux bois. This hand-painted marquetry bathroom is the very definition of a jewel box. The intricate veneer pattern delights the powder room visitor while only surrendering its secret about the shower to a knowing guest.
