before + after: sarah drive kids bath

Welcome to part 2! In case you missed part 1 of the master, see it here! In a similar feel to the master, this bathroom was very 80s, cramped, and in serious need of a refresh. Not much could change about the interior of the space due to where the bathroom was placed in the house- and the bones didn't really need to change. But everything else sure did!!!

How cute is this cement tile? I want it for me. Our goal here was to make the room feel bigger without moving the walls. We removed the closet to replace with open shelving, which helps open the space and prevent two doors from colliding. (See in mirror reflection below.) Also, a floating vanity gives the impression of a larger space and in this case, allows for a kids stool underneath. That and a few other little tricks like a huge mirror, and all white walls that flow seamlessly into the white tile make for a brandy new pretty bathroom. Enjoy! -d+e

repinned: wood finishes in bathrooms

Bathrooms can have a reputation of being cold and sterile, covered head to toe in ceramic tile. It's hard enough to get out of bed in the morning, why should we have to force ourselves out of the coziest spot in our home into the least inviting space of all? We won't stand for it!

There's been a serious trend lately of room-like bathrooms which we can't get enough of. Cold, hard bathrooms have died and gone to hell in a hand basket and warm, cozy bathrooms are here to stay! One of the best ways to achieve that is by adding wood finishes wherever you can- as shown here in some of the most beautiful bathrooms of Pinterest.

Are you planning a remodel? Consider a wood vanity, wood or wood-like tile on the floors or paneling on the walls, or floating wood shelves. (Wow the word wood is starting to look really funky.) What about a quick upgrade? Swap your mirror for one with a wood frame, add a small wooden stool or chair to hold your towels, or top your commode with a wooden tray to corral your accessories. Or pull in that gorgeous antique hutch from your grandmother that's been collecting dust in the basement all these years (if only, amirite). The options are endless!

And if you really want to take your bathroom to new heights, try adding a plant, a painting, and/or an antique rug. You'll never go back.
