An ingenious facelift and a fresh new colour scheme transformed a small second-floor bathroom into an elegant and functional spa-like retreat.
New colour and curtains
For the finishes, pick an eye-catching penny round floor tile and a sophisticated marble countertop to provide a clean, neutral backdrop for turquoise shower curtain. You can give the bathroom an inexpensive refresh by simply changing the colour of the paint and the shower curtain.
Subway tiles are a classic, timeless choice. Instead of wrapping the entire room from floor to ceiling, they were stopped halfway up on one wall to bring in more colour with paint and gives the option of hanging a fun piece of art.
Vanity and doorway: The before
The cabinetry was custom designed to anchor the two off-centre elements: the window and the mirror. If you don't have that issue, then you wont have to go custom, saving you big $$$. Shaker doors and minimalist hardware preserve the clean lines, directing the eye straight to the fabulous shower curtain. Thanks to the large window, no additional lighting was needed. The ceiling light and wall sconces were replaced with new schoolhouse-style ones to match the tiles.
Vanity and doorway: The after
A handy neighbour helped solve this cumbersome-door challenge: at the sellers request, two panels from one closet were transformed into a mini double door. The frosted glass inserts further open up the small room.
