kids’ bathroom before & after

May 1, 2014

Boys bathroom B & ABoy, did this bathroom need help. It’s tiny for starters, and the heavy curtains and drab colors made it feel closed in, even claustrophobic.

We had a big decision to make. Keep the tub or take it out? By taking it out and dropping the floor in the shower down a few inches (a sling is created underneath, suspending it), we were able to place a sheet of clear glass to partially enclose the splash zone. It was amazing how much of a feeling of space and height were created doing those two things.

Sea-green glass tiles were used on the walls and sand-colored pebbles on the floor. A new, ribbed glass awning window made the room feel fresh and new.

The old built-in vanity was replaced with a fun blue and white free-standing one which came with shelving flanking a lighted mirror. The walls and ceiling were painted white while neutral tiles on the bathroom floor added to the sense of space. A dramatic change to a very small space!
