Marker Girl Makeover – Bathroom Retreat

 

Marker Girl Home - Bathroom Makeover

Concept
This Dramatic Bathroom makeover was for a Mom who wanted a big change from the original wallpaper that came with the house, to a new modern retreat she can relax in before and after work.

As you can see a real update was needed

Storage
Starting with His Vanity – storage was his only request so we opted for drawers and used the vanity to full capacity. They are both very tall so long mirrors were added.

Tub
We added a larger tub and shorten the shower space a little. We put a curved shaped cornice inside the window to camouflage the odd placement. It was built that way to give them privacy but still lets daylight in. So we added artwork underneath to give some color and break up the large space between and not too low since it is a wet area.  Molding was added to the tub surround to give it a finished look.

 Shower
To save a little on budget we went with a mosaic on one wall only in the shower and then took the floor tile all the up the other side. Mosaic can be expensive. But with the layout it really turned out well creating a nice break with neutral porcelain vein cut tile and quartzite surfaces.  Frameless glass was added to open up the room.

Her Vanity Before
She also had storage issues with her vanity area and wanted the same shape|style vanity stool and of course no carpet, again came with the house.

The sink side of the vanity is now built in with  extra storage, we opened the cabinets a bit to also give more room for storage. The original sink area was too low. She is very tall so we raised the height of the sink and then stepped down the vanity.  She wanted a makeup mirror to put on makeup while sitting, so the mirror not being lower wasn’t a problem. Her vanity stool was reupolstered in a durable  fabric, working better for a bathroom

Master Bathroom Vanity

Not only was this made to be a retreat but it was custom made to function for her and her husband. Bathrooms are one those spaces I feel first  you should really look at the function, then let it be about the style with beautiful tile and cabinetry.

Happy Everything!
