This is a recently completed project of mine where I was asked by my client to modernize her dark and gloomy 1970's bathroom and turn it into a bright and airy one. The goal was not only to modernize the bathroom but also to add a separate shower. The color palette is fairly neutral, with a mix of whites, taupes, chocolate and grays.
We kept the footprint relatively similar to save on costs. We got rid of the old tiles on the floor and tub, changed the fixture and vanity and got rid of the "canopy" above the tub, which was making the tub area even darker.
I'm really happy that we were able to add a good sized shower to the space. It's my favorite part of this room. We took some space from the closet in the room next to the bathroom. Since it was a really large closet for a kid's room, it didn't affect the function of the room. I really like the pebble tiles from Terra Verre made of various cut stones.
We used a simple out of the box vanity and sink set to stay within budget and added a cool looking faucet.
The only thing missing is a unique shower curtain, like the Tree Shower Curtain from Urban Outfitter, the Dwell Studio Dot Chocolate Shower Curtain available at Modern Karibou or the Arbor Shower Curtain from CB2.
