Cluttered to Crisp – Before. The 1980s renovation left these empty nesters with a cluttered, inefficient bathroom that didn’t match their updated kitchen nearby. After. A clean, streamlined design by Susan Ozipko of sO Interiors gives the couple function and storage in a small space. The new features, such as the floating toilet and vanity, sit against a wall of statuario marble tiles. The homeowners replaced the tub-shower combo with a glass-doored shower.
When you decide to begin a bathroom remodeling project, it is quickest to organize your goals before shopping for materials. Choose what items you want to replace, add, or take away from the bath area. Consider refinishing existing items such as bathtub, shower, sinks and toilet, or renewing the tiles or tub and shower enclosure to give a new look to your bathroom even with just a little investment.

Blah Beige to Beautiful Blue – Before. A bulky vanity and a sliding shower door make this Eichler home’s bathroom feel cramped and dark. After. Vibrant blue tiles in an oversized hexagon pattern give the bathroom an immediate focal point. Next, the client got design advice from designer Pamela Lin of Urbanism Designs and had this custom vanity made for the space. Across from the vanity, the bathroom has a tub-shower combo with a glass panel.
Tight Fit to Open and Bright – Before. The bathroom’s pipes had sprung a leak, and the homeowners used the incident as an opportunity to remodel the space. While they were remodeling, they borrowed some square footage from an adjacent closet to make the bathroom bigger. After. Now an antique pocket door opens up to a bigger bathroom with a herringbone-tiled floor and a vaulted ceiling. Designer and homeowner Eileen Deschapelles kept the bathroom’s basic layout mostly the same, but by raising the ceiling, she could install a larger, glass-walled shower and a skylight, making the bathroom brighter and more welcoming.
Glum to Gleeful – Before. Black-veined tile covered more than half the wall and made the bathroom look really dark. After. White tiles cover the walls and floor, making the space light and airy. Next, Tanya Mclean and Nichole Skladan of Mango Design Co brought in teak and brushed gold materials to give the couple the midcentury style they wanted. Then, the design team added a boho rug, a paisley shower curtain and pieces of the couple’s art collection to give it a personal, and fun, feel.
