This project was an update, through and through. There were no issues with the existing bathroom, but it was definitely becoming dated. The biggest change was the removal of the wallpaper – the painted walls with the wainscoting surrounding the tub give the bathroom a modern look.
Next was the vanity. We got rid of the old-style full-height mirror and replaced it with 2 smaller ones. The homeowner told us they never utilized the empty space in the middle, so we added some additional cabinetry there to give them more storage space.
We re-used the existing tub, but replaced all of the gold fixtures and trim rings with chrome to match the sink faucets and other accessories throughout the bathroom. A nice quartz was used throughout the bathroom, including the vanity countertop and the platform the bathroom rests in.
The higher-than-normal wainscoting, the neutral colors, and the LED lighting give this bathroom an updated look while preserving the “cabin on the water” feel that the homeowner wanted.
