Bathroom Interior Designs - Comfort, Company, Increasing Home Value
The Powder Room or Half Bath is visited by everyone, from family to guest, and typically for a short time. It needs to be functional but it can also be the best place to have a little fun, or be unexpected. Continuity is key. You want to avoid needing a passport to walk about your home.
A Bexley Bathroom Design Project to Talk About
This award winning Powder Room in Bexley has more space than most. We gave it a complete overhaul without the expense of moving plumbing. We began by removing outdated floral wallpaper and vinyl tile giving us a blank slate. Next we arched out the existing vanity area to increase the scale and added a gorgeous dark blue granite counter top and under-mount sink.
As the clients grandchildren use this sink often we added the custom, box pleated, plaid skirt to hide their step stool and exposed plumbing. The same fabric is also used on the arched cornice complete with gold fringe. We love the juxtaposition of the linear plaid in an arched application. Repeating this concept, hand carved border and feature tiles create the curved top edge in the water closet, and set off the linear nature of the forest marble field tiles.
The new transitional chandelier and sconces help to bridge the gap between the traditional hand knotted area rug and contemporary original artwork, both incredibly rich with texture. What’s left, but the paint? We pulled the deep peacock blue and warm caramel from the fabric and rug to offset the beautiful white woodwork.
Exquisite Interior Decorating & Style
Of course most Powder Rooms aren’t very big, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a big personality! This Gahanna area Powder Room received a sassy, yet affordable make-over with ready-framed artwork, a new vanity light, standard granite and an impressive ready-framed mirror over existing cabinetry. We splurged a little on the plumbing adding the striking blue vessel sink and metallic accented wallpaper.
Major Remodels for Transitional Elegance & Function
If you are planning to stay in your home for the long term, you might consider investing in a more efficient Master Bath floor plan, helping you happily stay in your home longer and more independently. We completely gutted this Blacklick Master Bath moving the plumbing, removing the unused tub and adding a large steam shower. Of course we blocked the walls for future grab bar installation.
A Quick Freshening Up
Not everyone plans to stay in their home long term to justify a major remodel. You might just need to update a perfectly good existing plan. This Westerville Master Bath even kept their existing green slate floor tile. A colorful, yet subtle ceramic tile backsplash was used to pull the color palette together, yet open the bathroom up to change in the future with a quick wall paint change. The existing cafe shutters are great for privacy as well as allowing light to enter the space. We added custom box pleat swags above the shutters. The luxurious looped fringe adds more texture with an unexpected twist, applying it vertically.
Shower Ideas & Transformational Tailoring
This Grandview Guest Bath also had its plumbing left in its original location. The homeowner also wanted to keep their existing vanity light fixture. Everything else was fair game! A completely custom wood vanity top wraps under the vessel sink and around the duel flush toilet for a decidedly contemporary flare. The mosaic slate border tiles continue the movement created by the countertop extending the line from backsplash right into the shower. Recessed shelves added additional storage space. We didn’t have the room to expand the recessed medicine cabinet due to pipe and stud locations, so we had a custom mirror made complete with piano hinge to greatly increase the scale of the mirror and still have access to the existing shelves.
