Before & After: Guest + Girl’s Bathroom
May 11, 2012 in Before & After | 11 comments

In this home, the young daughter’s bathroom also happens to be the guest bathroom, so while we wanted a youthful look, we were also targeting something that adults could feel comfortable using.

The home is very traditional and the finishes used are all classic elements which should stay in style for years to come.  The bath was a minor remodel (nothing structural was moved), we just looked at updating the materials.

The bulkhead light fixture was removed, along with the builder mirror and cultured marble countertop.  All the cabinets remained.  The carpet came out, as did all the tilework in the shower area.

This was our color palette:

Soft green/blue with classic white subway tile and an accent tile made of marble and glass.

I found a Carrara marble remnant, with a beautiful edge detail, for a great price, which allowed us to splurge a bit on a custom shower curtain.

After:

Bath

Now the family has a fresh, clean and crisp bath with custom details which will be in style for years to come.  I don’t know about you, but it makes me want to go tackle my guest bathroom!
