We recently completed a bathroom remodel for a secondary bath in a home just starting to show its age. The bathroom is in the hall off a young girl’s bedroom and is used by her; but it also happens to be the ‘powder bath’ when guests are over.
The mother of the home wanted the bath to be updated in a classic style so it would be appropriate for her daughter’s use, but also attractive for visiting guest. I think it turned out beautifully.
This bathroom felt dark and crowded with the wood stained cabinets.
The previous light fixtures were very high and did not provide the best type of lighting for a bathroom. Side sconces, if space allows, are ideal for bathroom activities like putting on make up or shaving.
Doesn’t this look so much cleaner, fresher and better!
Raquel selected a pale grey, hand-made tile that is just lovely up close. The marble floor will always be in style.
We had a chest converted to a vanity which provides great storage while giving the room some personality. The new quartz counter is very durable and will withstand anything a young lady can throw at it, including hot curling irons (which the previous cultured marble did not do so well with).
When we were planning the bath, there was a lovely marble mosaic tile we really liked, but it was pricey. We compromised by using it as an accent detail in the soap box, as you can see in the photo below.
Everything looks so fresh and clean, now. What a pretty bath! Just a few easy steps to make a small bath look bigger and brighter! Hope this remodel gives you some inspiration for your next home project!
