Renovation Project: Bathroom Remodel
This project was for a bathroom that was stuck in the early 2000's and allocated the space in a way that didn't function for the homeowners. The majority of the bathroom was centered around an oversized, double head shower but the wife exclusively takes baths. In addition, the room felt dark with the only natural light coming from a skylight and all the accent colors ranging in the darker beige family. Our main goal for this couple was to lighten up the space and to add a freestanding tub to the layout.

Remodel of a bathroom to open up a dark space
The biggest hurdle for the space was creating differing functioning spaces without the doorways crowding the space. It was still important the the homeowners to have a water closet and a door to enclose their closet. We were able to achieve this by utilizing one pocket door and a barn door to the closet with enclosed hardware. This space has an elevated style so by encasing the hardware on the barn door it gave it an upscale, hotel look instead of rustic farmhouse.
Another element we needed to tackle was lightening the space. We were able to raise the ceiling about a foot throughout the space which not only helped with opening the space but also helped incorporate extra storage with floor to ceiling shoe racks in the closet. We intentionally chose a color palette of warm whites and marbles so the surfaces would reflect the natural light coming from the skylight.
