Hope Valley Bathroom Renovation
Bright and Neutral Traditional Bathroom Remodel
Built in the mid 50’s this home was in prime condition for a renovation. We completed two projects within this home, at the same time! See the kitchen here. For the bathroom space, we opted for a full renovation. We gutted the space down the studs and started fresh. Collaborating with the homeowner’s during the design phase, we picked out a few key elements that were a must for the new space. We had to make a larger shower and have more sink space! Like most homes built in the 1950’s storage wasn’t as big of a necessity as it is today. With all of our new gadgets and electric tooth brushes, we need somewhere to hide our personal items from visiting family and friends.
New Design Layout Ideas Ahead
To accomplish our main goals from the design phase, we flipped the location of the toilet with the old tub. We eliminated the tub all together, which actually provided us with more room for a shower, complete with a bench! As you can see in the plans, once we moved the toilet we had a lot more room and installed double sinks. To help with our limited storage space, having the double vanity sink gave us more space and we used countertop vanity cabinet for additional storage. The new shower is so large and feels even more spacious using half-walls with glass tops, creating a much more bright and open space.
By using a neutral color scheme we helped to keep the renovation matching to the homes original aesthetics. This created the illusion that the bathroom was always there. Our favorite feature for this space was the shower area. With the open glass, and additional storage with the wall niche for shampoo and soaps, it was both aesthetically pleasing and functional. A beautiful blend of bright and neutral.
