We all love before and after posts, right? I have a good one for you today! I’m not even going to build suspense with a bunch of writing and the reveal photo at the end. I’m so excited about this result that I’m just going to hit you with it right up front! Here we go:
We were working with a small, dark bathroom. The main goal was to lighten and brighten the room, plus add some much needed storage. Here is a look at our initial plan:
Here are some of the highlights:
To brighten the space, a sealed light was installed above the tub. What a difference! If you have the option to do this… do it! All of a sudden this dark room is full of light! The walls are painted a soft grey, and white subway tile is installed all the way to the ceiling in the shower area, and half way up the other two walls. A band of glass tile wraps all the way around the room to add some sparkle and colour.
The vanity was an all-in-one unit purchased at Home Depot. It is small enough to fit in a standard space, but provides functional storage with the three drawers.
IMPORTANT DETAIL ALERT!!! Check out the floor!!! It is a 3x6 porcelain tile with a calacatta marble look, installed in our favourite herringbone pattern! We adore this bathroom floor, and were thrilled to have a client that loved it as much as we did!
A wall niche was built into the shower and backed with the glass tile for a little extra zing.
Another cool storage feature to point out are the picture frame medicine cabinets. These ones were custom made by our favourite handy man, but you can order similar ones here. And see the cute floor vent? It’s from Costco.
The simple shelves above the toilet provide more storage, as well as an opportunity to display pretty things!
I want to say a big thank you to our fabulous clients for letting us design, photograph and share their bathroom!
