Small Bathroom with Big Style

Before

Last month we gave this tired old bathroom a much-needed facelift!  It was a relatively small job for us, but what made it stand out for me were the finishing touches.

I see this all the time in these old houses.  They always put in these ridiculous dropped ceilings over the tubs.  In this case it’s more of a dropped wall that is so low you actually have to duck to get in.  I’ve never understood the purpose behind this, but it’s gotta go!

Gotta love the prints on the old shower surround!

no more dropped ceiling!

The first thing to go was that silly dropped ceiling.  The whole bathroom feels bigger now!  We also moved the toilet to a more logical position.

A new tub and tile shower surround were a welcome change.  These tiles were a good deal at $3.00/sf from Tile for Less.  And I really like that orange shower curtain.  A bold choice, but it looks amazing against the Robin’s Egg Blue walls!

This vanity set is fantastic.  The customer splurged a bit on the light, paying $300 at Lamps Plus, but it was money well spent imho.  You can’t tell so much from the picture, but it casts a beautiful dappled light pattern around the room.

The final touch – which you can’t see – is the heated tile floors.  Let me tell you, they will really appreciate the warm tile under their feet when they walk in here in bare feet first thing in the morning.
