This bathroom took on quite a transformation from its original 1980’s form and function. The space was literally gutted and refitted with sleek and modern finishes that give it an ultra clean and relaxing feel.

Before

The most amazing fact behind the magic is that the footprint didn’t change. The shower, tub, vanity, etc. remained in their initial positions. No walls were removed, save a linen closet. Yet, the space appears twice the size!

Little (big) tricks: Running the floor tile horizontally instead of vertically widens the space visually. Using a floating vanity opens up a space to the eye. Running the wall tiles into the shower instead of using different tiles in the shower also widens the space. A clear shower enclosure with minimal hardware elongates the room by taking your eye all the way to the back wall.

I kinda want to take a bubble bath. Don’t you?
