Well, my clients finally have their home back – renovations are complete. Renovating 2 bathrooms back-to-back definitely creates a few weeks of havoc & inconvenience, but kinda like ripping off a band-aid, they just went for it. I’ve already taken you through the completed Ensuite Bath, and detailed all the finish choices.
Now here’s the Main Bathroom Reveal:
Seriously, right? Wowsers, what a change!
Like the Ensuite reno, it was completely gutted and re-done without any change to the footprint.
This kept costs down, and allowed for small but impactful indulgences like the accent tile and the custom vanity.
The same paint color was used here (SW Repose Gray), but we ‘livened it up’ by adding wide white stripes on the back wall.
It was the perfect approach for making it feel more fun in here, so I was thrilled when the client loved it too!
The Ensuite bath is very elegant & sophisticated – this is the family space for teenagers and guests.
And though you’d never know it to look at it, there were no “big splurges” – fixtures & finishes were all extremely budget conscious. Accessing remnant cuts of the Caeserstone Lagos Blue enabled us to use Quartz on the countertops affordably.
Talk to your local stone distributor/fabricator to see what’s available in off cuts – it’s usually a substantial savings!
Three bands of the finger mosaic accent tile prettify the tub surround. The width of each band narrows bottom to top.
Notice the 2 curtain rods? (look close) The back one is for the liner (functional, necessary, NOT pretty). The front one holds a pair of white twill (ish) cotton tab top drape panels. I sooo prefer 84” drape panels to shower curtains; they’re longer (84” compared to 72” shower curtains), adding height to the space; they’re completely low maintenance (wash & hang to dry)…..and they’re prettier.
This is the Main family bathroom, so the art is bright, whimsical, and meaningful. Plus, a great hit of color!
Color from the artwork was repeated in the glass vase; an oversize ceramic shell holds guest towels, and a rectangular white ceramic plate serves as a soap dish. (It’s actually an hors d’oeuvres plate – think outside the box when searching for accessories!)
One more Before & After:
A wonderful space for a fantastic family – thanks Cynthia & Keith!
ps – for those of you wondering (like my mother), ‘prettify’ IS a word.
If you’re planning to re-decorate, re-design, or renovate, I can help you create the extraordinary. Fall in love with your home again.
