New Guest Bathroom Renovation – Before + After

Are you ready to give your boring bathroom a fresh, new look? Then you’ve come to the right place, my friend! WARNING: You may need to pick your jaw up off the floor after seeing these before and after photos! We sure did.

When our client moved into this home, they knew they were in for a long and strenuous remodel process to bring this outdated 1950s home into the twenty first century. We completely gutted this bathroom, keeping nothing the same except for the existing window.




Based off inspiration images provided to us, we presented several options to our client. Ultimately, they selected the items seen below and we immediately got to work finalizing all details on 2D elevations and floorplan drawings to properly guide the contractor through the entire renovation process.


While this project presented many oppositions, one of our biggest challenges in this bathroom came in the depth of the vanity. The existing cabinet in this bathroom was 15 inches deep. That’s right 15 inches deep! For those of you unfamiliar with standard depths, a typical base cabinet is 24 inches deep (you can see how this presented a potential issue). Unable to add additional square footage to this bathroom or relocate plumbing to another wall, we knew our best option was to order a custom vanity from a local cabinet maker. Drawings were provided to make sure we successfully accomplished the look, storage space and functionality details we were after.

Because of the shallow depth of the cabinet, we had no choice but to use a vessel sink that sat on top of the countertop. Brass plumbing fixtures were chosen to compliment the Hale Navy vertical shiplap wall and to add a nice pop against the white quartz countertops.

PRO TIP: We were able to save our clients money by utilizing a local countertop fabricator who sells certain countertop options by the square foot vs by the slab.

The decorative, patterned tile flooring was chosen to provide a unique feature to this bathroom. Pair that with a custom stained vanity and brushed brass hardware, and what do you get? A whole lot of personality and pizzaz. Who doesn’t love a touch of unexpected details?



Rather than going for the typical over the mirror vanity lighting, we opted for a more modern approach and added two sconces on either side of the thin, brass framed, round mirror.



Oversized, hand thrown, subway tile was selected to produce a timeless backdrop for the brass plumbing fixtures in the shower. A coordinating brass Schluter was used along all finished edges, creating a clean transition from tile to sheetrock.


We hope this bathroom renovation leaves you inspired to tackle your own remodel venture! Remember to have fun with it and take time to focus on the details. When in doubt, reach out to us. We’d love to help you on your next project! Happy remodeling!
