Located in the quant neighborhood of Wash Park, a beautiful home that exudes turn of the century charm was in need of some updating inside. c2Design was referred to the homeowner who desired a revamp of both bathrooms in his home. We were excited for the chance to get our hands on these bathrooms and add additional character to this home!
We began on the main level powder room. This small room had dark carpet running from the pocket door all the way to the shower. From the shower curtain, dark carpet, and overall dark nature of the space, it was not one to show off to guests. The homeowner wanted to open the space up visually and keep the style relevant to the home.
First thing was first, tear out that carpet! Once the carpet was out (who's idea was that in the first place?!), our crew focused on the construction of the shower. With a new base poured and pan in place, we placed a black penny tile on top. Shower walls lined with a white subway tile then grouted in a deep charcoal run up to the ceiling. To replace the shower curtain, a brand new glass shower door was put in place. Not only did this open up the space visually, but looks stunning with the bright white tiled walls behind.
To tie the rest of the bathroom together, a marble black and white basket weave mosaic was carried throughout the rest of the bathroom floor. Since the space didn’t have any storage when we first saw arrived, it was an important make that a priority. A small vanity fits the space perfectly without compromising on square footage. New chrome features were added that carried the 1920’s style. Benjamin Moore gray/blue wall color paired beautifully with a black trim offers another nod to the past while still being updated. We could’t be happier with the outcome.
Now lets move upstairs to the main bathroom for all the bedrooms. The homeowner wanted to update the bathroom and create a space that would make it more manageable for everyday use by having two sinks. A large double vanity solved all our problems. With plenty of storage underneath, the double vanity makes a statement with its clean lines.
Since the tub and shower tile were in great condition, we just replaced the floor tile with a 12” x 24” modern beige that blended nicely with the materials already in place. Once plumbing and electrical were addressed, two new vanity lights were installed above two mirrors. Now this space offers so much more in terms of practicality as well as style.
