You’ve seen the ‘after’ in the March/April issue of Dabble Mag (pg.68-72), and now see where it all began.
After moving into a previously owned home typically there are grand plans to make it your own, however it’s common to settle in and watch years go by before a renovation occurs. In my client’s case it was thirty and high time to bring this bathroom to life by removing wallpaper, carpet and drapery.
The layout of the bathroom remained the same. We took advantage of the large window by adding a glass wall in the shower and opening up the space which involved moving the plumbing to the opposite wall. This was the biggest change in the bathroom and well worth it. Replacing and re-sizing the window was also a worthwhile change as the original window was too low to allow a new tub to fit properly without compromising the window frame.
As you know tile was a large part of our design scheme. Natural materials were also important in our decision making using marble, granite, glass and walnut wood to name a few. I originally blogged about creating interest with neutral tile at the start of this renovation.
Renovations can seem daunting and overwhelming at times. There are many decisions to be made during the process, but having the right team working with you will smooth the process and ensure a fabulous end result.
