I've noticed that bathroom trends seem to be more versatile than kitchen trends. Many kitchens we do are shaker white cabinets with white countertops. That's not a bad thing but sometimes seeing a little versatility is a good thing. Ah yes, this has been repeated by me before and I may sound like a broken record but it's true! It's nice to see people spice it up now and then!
My tastes have certainly evolved since working at Stevens Kitchens. A lot of materials and styles I previous would have glanced over now seem to be my main preference. For instance, in the bathroom you're about to see I would've thought it was nice a few years ago but wouldn't want it in my own home.
Now? This bathroom is one of my favorite master's to date and I can't stop staring.
Before I share more information about this bathroom I do want to give a little shout out to our amazing photographer, Ashley. Prior to each shoot, Ashley will research previous photos and renderings and specific focal points (for instance: a specialized tile design). Ashley and I will then spend time editing the photos to make them absolutely perfect.
This bathroom was for a client who previously had their kitchen done with us and we were so thrilled when they decided to work with us again!
In terms of layouts: This bathroom has a unique layout, as it's very narrow. With that being said, we kept the layout as is and just updated it to a spin on the modern farmhouse (with some industrial hints).
Right off the bat, you'll notice the lighting is completely different. We said goodbye to the overhead light and instead opted for some recessed lighting. We also got rid of a ceiling fan, which was very dated entity to a bathroom
While we're on lighting:
For the vanity we added some nice and simple sconces
There's such a difference in temperature with the change of lighting. The previous yellow lighting wasn't natural. For some that's not a problem, but for people who wear makeup: Artificial lighting can make applying makeup difficult.
The new cooler, and more natural lighting creates just a nicer ambiance and aligns more with outside lighting.
I've spent a long time looking at the finished vanity because it's so rich with texture and has so many layers to it. Using Woodland cabinetry in the Walnut Natural finish, we end up with a beautiful rustic vanity. Then for the top, we used Pompeii Misterio quartz. I think this was a genius decision because it has light veins but isn't too busy. When your cabinetry has so much character, you don't want to overdo it with the countertop.
I love that we're seeing separate mirrors for each sink versus a giant mirror. Besides being aesthetically pleasing, it also makes cleaning the mirror so much easier.
This specific client had such amazing taste and managed to find mirrors that matched the beautiful matte black faucets as well as the matte hardware.
A huge upgrade came with the shower and the bathtub. We removed any remaining '90's elements from the gold framed shower to the garden tub.
I mean.... Look at this before and after!!!
From the beginning consult to the ending photo shoot: We truly had a terrific time working on this project! We are so happy with the end result!
Are you ready for your brand new bathroom?!
