The before of a classic bath.
Tile is in pretty good shape overall,with a little TLC and some "faux" magic this transformation from before to after brings a much more neutral and spa like color scheme and feel to an otherwise classic color schemed bathroom.
Order up for a teenage boys bathroom.
A little more classic in feel and super posh in the spa department.
Time to update and give this bath a redux, without compromising the classic elements in the design scheme and materials. The tile is classic and really in good shape.
A solution to an entire tear out and begin again?
A little imagination, a little elbow grease and a sketch or two.....
The "before" A Texas orange on the upper walls coordinates with the existing tiled border.
Upholstered valances were taken down, existing shower door removed and instantly the feel of the room is more spacious and open.
A closer view of the cream,green and orange deco tiled border.
Original and intact.
A detail of the tiled border.
Almost a leaf like pattern, about to get transformed into a cleaner and more sleeker color scheme.
The new color scheme in shades of green, cream and white.
Prep, prime....... Already the sq. footage has increased!
A view of the "new" tile border and the upper painted walls, with upholstered valance
removed and shower doors removed.
Though the floor was in really good shape, a few repairs of chipped and cracked tiles were needed.
The before of that process, important to seal and fix so water will not get below the tile and cause a headache! A few little places needed some attention, especially the holes where the shower doors were before.
Nothing a little filler, and some faux work could not handle.
Satin nickel rods,towel bars and spa like curtains, hooks and valance completes the spa like look.
Notice the neutral almost not there tiled border that pulls just enough white into the color scheme.
Without going into a major tear out or rebuild; a solution to stay classic but updated was achieved using what was already in existence.
The "before" vanity area with mirror and lighting.
Worked great for the Texas / western scheme.
The vanity is good and the existing hardware works well with the new look and feel.
The new look is tweaked and a little more sleek feeling...... still the same great classic features but with a cleaner and more spa like feel.
New light fixture, "new" white and silver leafed mirror, fluffy white and green towels, a hand written quote for every morning to see and live by:
"Make each day your masterpiece".......
An addition of a spa like stool covered in fluffy terrycloth fabric completes the look.
The "after" with all the accessories and clean streamlined feel.
I love the tote for all the details a growing boy needs, great idea and can be toted to and from.
