I just finished up a bathroom renovation. Renovations can be expensive (but there are short cuts you can take) stressful for the homeowner, if they are living in the space and always take longer (and are messier) than expected. These clients wanted a fresh look for their large, dated master bathroom. The house is 17 years old. We focused on updating all surfaces. We kept the existing cabinets to save costs and the tile floor. We used the tile floor as the jumping off point because there was so much square footage, hence the hefty expense to replace.Sticking with the neutral floor, we were able to select granite that played off of it an introduce a pale green from the wall.
We tore out the backsplash that was dating the large tub and put in a mother of pearl mosaic to add texture and color. The soft grays, greens, blues and pale peach shine through and tie in the flooring.
Changing out the fixtures and replacing all knobs, faucets and hardware with Kohler polished nickel was a major upgrade and gives the bath a luxurious hotel vibe.
You won't believe the before. Yes, the green faux finish wallpaper and ivy border came down and was replaced with Sherwin Williams "Sea Salt".
