This guest bathroom started out with great bones. It had nice tall ceilings and a large arched window to let in a lot of natural light. However, the finishes left much to be desired. Between the white-washed finish of the cabinetry, plain white tile, and brass fixtures, the bathroom felt very outdated. Everything started out builder’s grade and the client wanted to update this bathroom with custom finishes.
The previous vanity was very long which provided great storage but we felt that it was a bit boring to simply have such a long, flat surface. We chose to replace the vanity with a shorter one in a rich dark wood and added a matching linen cabinet with a decorative glass door. This allowed for more storage plus a pretty area to display accessories and towels. The countertop is a beautiful quartzite that keeps it neutral with subtle warm toned veining.
In the shower, we removed the under-utilized bathtub and made the shower a walk in shower with a new sliding glass door. For the tile, we chose to do a unique design with 3 different wall tiles. The bottom is a limestone, in the center we used a decorative arabesque, and on the top, we used a cream subway tile. This created a really unique shower design with an eclectic feel that complimented the homeowner’s style well.
To finish off the bathroom, we added a mirror with a carved frame in a light bronze detail, new vanity light, and towels in warm tones. The final design turned out beautifully and feels fresh, warm, and inviting for guests.
