BEFORE & AFTER: GUEST BATH
January 08, 2016 in Before & After, Inspiration, Trends | no comments

 

Happy New Year!  Our team is back to work full blast and excited about all our projects in this new year.  Our project list right now includes: residential houses, commercial offices, downtown condos, a brand new apartment complex (clubhouse and model apartments) and an exciting new model home.  Plenty to keep this crew busy and hard at work!

In between new project work, I wanted to show this final room, the guest/powder bath, from the house remodel we’ve been showing you over the past month.

This bath is located just off the kitchen/great room and was in much need of an update!

BEFORE:

Our awesome homeowners were on board with a total redo and the only item they were interested in keeping was the pretty mirror they had recently added (which our team painted black to match the new cabinet).

AFTER:

The configuration of the bathroom stayed the same, but the homeowners got new flooring, cabinet/counter top, sink, shower tile and plumbing fixtures.

To work with the color scheme of the rest of the house, we chose blues, greys and whites as the predominate color palette.

The room was painted, then the shower tile ripped out and replaced with timeless marble.  We added a shampoo niche for soaps/bottles in lieu of the small little soap dish that had been there before.

The room was small, so we did not need much tile and were able to splurge on a pretty marble mosaic with black dots for the new flooring.

This bathroom now feels light, bright, clean and fresh.  We love the velvet and linen valance and shower curtain.  The scalloped light fixture is a lovely alternative to a basic flush mount.  Since the shower in this bath is rarely used, we installed two towel hooks instead of a towel bar to give us space for these pretty botanical prints.

A guest bath is a great opportunity to experiment with decorative elements.  Because these rooms are typically smaller, you can use a few ‘wow’ elements without breaking the bank!
