Recent Project: Master Bathroom Renovation

Before I share my most recent bathroom renovation...I have to confess something!

I've become obsessed with Pinterest!  I've been dabbling with this site for a few months now but lately I've been using it as a great tool to save pictures of architectural elements and interior spaces that catch my eye.  Before Pinterest, I would save images to my hard drive which was a memory hog.  I was also doing a subpar job of documenting the pictures' source.  Now my pictures on Pinterest link back to the source.  I can also direct clients to these pictures to see what they like and dislike about these spaces...a great way to further define the client's wants and needs for their own home.  So, check out my Pinterest boards here.  If you "follow all" my boards you'll see everything I pin.  

Master Bathroom Renovation

Below are before and after pictures so you can see the design decisions that were made along the way and the resulting transformation!

Here's the before picture...


After the new layout, functionality, and look and feel of the bathroom was determined, then the fun part of selecting the materials came next.  Below is a sample of the items to be used. 


Here is the after picture.  The toilet was moved further down the wall to allow room for a vanity with double sinks.   The window treatment references the color of the "wood-like" porcelain tiles.  The use of a handmade oriental rug is a favorite look of mine for a bathroom.


Here's the before picture of the shower which was in desperate need of replacing...


Here's the after picture...

Here's the after picture with painted wood cabinet with inset doors and drawers, Corian countertop with small ogee edge, and upper cabinet for extra storage.   Recessed medicine cabinets also add extra storage.  A pocket door was installed to further open up the space.


Here's one more before picture...


The vanity above, was replaced with a linen closet...


I've helped the same client with several projects throughout their home.  Here are a few more before and afters...

Their son's bathroom used to look like this...


And now looks like this...  The shower curtain fabric is from the talented local fabric designer Victoria Larson.  You can check out her beautiful fabrics here.


Here's a before picture of their living room...


The gallery of the client's travel photos are now hung and chairs were given a fresh redo...


Here's a before picture of their nook...


Below, the custom roman shade completes the look.  Another great website for inspiration is Houzz.  The picture below was featured by them, here.  


Stay tuned for my next post which features the super cool Hobo store in downtown Annapolis!

Have a great week!

I think the new master bath is amazing! I can't believe how completely different it looks. AWESOME!

Your house renovation was lovely! :) But, maximizing space is your talent! What you did there in your bathroom is amusing! Every corner in the bathroom seemed to be well-lighted and I like that you chose a neutral tone for one corner and a lighter shade of blue for you the wall adjacent to the sink.

Maximizing every inch of space that you have is really an essential for any household, especially if there's only a limited amount of space for you to use. I love that paisley printed Roman shade! It gives the whole room a different feel because of the plain colors all over the room.

Lighting is the key to a successful design. Different settings and types can create countless moods that you can take advantage of. Also, it is important to maximize the space. It’s all about getting things organized. Another great job for you, Melissa!

Some really great results from what I can see with the before and after photos. Updating bathrooms probably adds the most value to your house if you are ever trying to sell.

These look so great! You should see our bathroom that we inherited from our last people who rented. We could use some major bathroom renovations in Mississauga. What are some of the hardest things when renovating your bathroom?

I think it would be really nice to do a bathroom remodel this fall. It seems like it would be a lot nicer to work on verses doing it in the summer heat. I have always wanted to put a jacuzzi tub in my master bathroom. I think it could be amazing for end of the week decompression sessions.
