We completed dual bathroom renovations for our client, giving their two outdated spaces a timeless design. Our design choices were to maintain the charming aspect of their character home. Part of the unique character of this home is the stained glass windows in each bathroom – which we planned to keep.

However, we also wanted to add modern touches to the space – and found that balancing modern aesthetics with non-traditional touches kept the home’s character in focus.

Highlighting original features of this character home

We paid special attention to highlighting the stunning original stained glass windows in each bathroom by sticking with a warm, natural material palette. We bring energy into the space with each bathroom with organic tile patterns featuring alternating shades of grey, white, and off-white tiles. The main bathroom renovation showcases a mirrored tub skirt.

Balancing modern touches with classic design

With the modern touches, we matched each space with classic bathroom design finishes referencing the home’s history, such as the dark stained oak vanities and the marble hex tiles on the ensuite floor.

Further charm that’s equally functional as it is visual with wall-mount faucets, which also help keep the counter space clear and smart storage solutions make these smaller bathrooms more livable.

Specifically, the bathroom renovations and interior design features:

  • Cabinets: oak-stained Wintermoss
  • Countertops: Vicostone Bettoglio
  • Wall tiles: Centura artisan series in white
  • Main floor tiles: Julian tile Intarsi line; Ensuite floor: Juilan tile La Marca series 6″ hexagon
  • Plumbing fixtures all by Baril in chrome
  • Paint for ensuite: Balboa Mist Benjamin Moore; Paint for main bathroom: Deep Caviar Benjamin Moore

These new bathrooms, with a blend of modern and traditional for continuity with the home’s character, are now as stylish as our clients!
