Renovated Bathroom

What fun we had with this remodel! In just five short weeks we turned this dated 90’s bathroom into a beautiful master bathroom. The only request she had – make sure it’s suited for a senior adult. We did this with components like stylish grab bars and a low threshold on the shower. Otherwise, I had free rein to do whatever I wanted. My client truly let me make all of the design decisions, a first for me. And it ended up being both fun and nerve-wrecking at the same time!

The Before

First up, the guys removed the bath/shower unit along with the dropped ceiling above the shower and the vanity. By removing those dropped ceilings the space instantly looked twice as big!

Crazy what a difference those changes made, right?

The After

Next I focused on the tile selections. My client’s taste is a little bit rustic with warm tones and wood elements throughout her house. To make sure the new bathroom reflected her style, we chose cement 8×8 tiles on the floor in an interesting pattern. Since the floor tile would most certainly be stealing the show, the shower tiles were a simple white 3×12 subway tile on the walls and a white hex matte tile on the floor. All of the tile received the same color grout for a cohesive look.

Since the vanity was in good shape I chose to keep it. We simply repainted it this pretty shade of blue which matches the blue in the floor tile. We added a white quartz countertop with undermount sinks and finished it off with brushed nickel hardware and faucets.

To continue with the wood tones, we selected walnut framed mirrors and the teak wood bench. Above these pretty mirrors are the neatest wall sconces that match well with the brushed nickel shower faucet.

To work well within the space, the shower then received a semi-frameless sliding glass door. To finish off the look and to meet her requests to make this bathroom suitable for aging, we added an ADA compatible items. We added an ADA toilet at seat-height along and two stylish grab bars. The grab bar inside the shower doubles as a shelf and the one just on the outside doubles as a towel bar. This goes to show that you can get something stylish and functional for this specific request. We also made sure the shower faucet had a removable hand-held sprayer for easy use. And last but not least, the teak bench can easily be moved around as needed.

Overall we love the way this bathroom turned out and hope she does too!
