Before & After: Bathroom Light & Airy
Don’t you just love a good bathroom makeover? Remodeling outdated and inefficient spaces is very rewarding, and the results are a beautiful reflection of the collaboration between myself and the client’s aesthetic and lifestyle.
This original bathroom needed a complete overhaul. With too shallow a tub, aging fixtures, and a supersized green and pink tile diamond greeting you in the shower every morning, it was enough to make you go back to bed and pull the covers over your head.
The design remodel of this compact master bathroom in a San Francisco home resulted in a beautiful, airy retreat. The transformation is amazing!
Goodbye shallow tub you could barely fit in, good riddance dreary lighting that gives you dark under-eye circles, arrivederci cracked vinyl floor tile, and hello gorgeous everything!
We installed tile wainscoting to keep with the traditional Arts & Crafts architecture of the home, and added white glass pendant lights and custom curved mirrors for a balance of contemporary and traditional.
Enlarged windows, deep tub, and pale colors instill this calm sanctuary with natural light. Statuary marble floors and handmade ceramic tiles keep the design timeless while enriching every moment spent in the bathroom.
That’s the first half of this makeover, done! Now for the powder room….
Have you ever had a powder room that’s just too small? A clever way to fix that is to break into the adjacent room! This powder room shared a wall with the water heater closet, so we relocated the water heater and used that closet space to add a sink area. Instant size upgrade!
This powder room before-and-after takes my breath away! Dark blue handmade tiles ground the walls, and are balanced above with pale and ethereal sea mist toned tiles. Statuary marble in various forms from tile to mosaic maintain visual interest and classic sophistication.
Wouldn’t this put a smile on your face every time you walk into the space? It certainly does to the house guests in this home!
