The small bath at the rear entrance to the pool was a little funky. Black tile with white grout and a stained brass sink made no sense to me. The confusion was elevated with a whicker frame/beach house type mirror. Then, there were white painted cabinets. The hardware was good, but that was all that I liked. I started with refinishing hardwood floors and waited until the idea of what I wanted 'came to me'.
|Bath BEFORE. I painted all cabinets and trim a flat gloss, deep slate to make the|
space seem more cohesive.
|Bath AFTER: I painted all of the cabinetry and trim a low gloss dark slate to |
compliment the wall finish and hardware.
|2nd bath BEFORE (actually in progress, as the mirror had already been changed)|
|2nd Bath AFTER. A flat wall color in a deep gray really made the tile pop,|
and a simple quilted shower curtain from Restoration Hardware was an easy
improvement that allowed me to use the existing retro rings.
I still have much to do as I move through the house, so would love your suggestions on resources. Also check out my Pinterest boards on remodeling for inspiration and insight onto what's next...
