For some, bathtubs are just a huge waste of space. They get used, if they get used, a few times a year. For anti-tub people: Removing it and instead enlarging the shower is simply a dream. This was the case for one of our latest bathroom remodels.
This brand new bathroom was made possible by large vanities with plenty of storage options . Also featured, a brand new shower, new closet doors, flooring, and lighting.
Let's begin with what the bathroom looked like before the remodel.
Giant columns and outdated vanities, flooring, and shower. This isn't the worst before picture we've seen though! This bathroom just needed to be spruced up a little to our times. Therefore we said goodbye to:
This is what the bathroom looked like after we got rid of the bullet list above.
Now that our canvas is completely blank we were able to begin installation.
Even without being completed these vanities (matched with the flooring) is beautiful! The cabinetry in the vanity has so much character. Doesn't it make you just want to stare and look at all the different brush strokes used in the staining process?
The cabinetry used is Wellborn Harmony Maple Sienna. The flooring too adds a nice contrast from the rich cabinetry. That flooring is Bedrosians Studio collection in Sky. You may not think it's a big deal but the chosen grout gives so much dimension to the floor.
The shower features simple tile with a deco band for some added flair. Overall, the shower tile fits with the overall traditional genre. Heck, even the plumbing fixtures in the shower look traditional!!
It's such a nice sigh of relief looking at the difference between these two showers! Also gone is the gold frame enclosure at the top. This was replaced with a clear glass enclosure that elongates the size of the shower.
Here is the new enclosure! Much better and much nicer.
The materials used in the shower consisted of:
American Olean Bevalo in Dove (wall)
American Olean Marble Weave in Great Giza (deco band)
American Olean Bevalo in Mist (shower floor)
It was such a neat process to watch this bathroom come to life. For more photos, visit our Houzz profile.
All for now,
