Bathroom Remodel / February 9, 2019 / Amie Thibault.
Ho-Hum to Inviting - Before. The clients thought their bathroom was spacious, especially for New York City, but they wanted it to have more personality and function. After. By combining the shower and tub, designer Nicholas Kaess of NYKB was able to add storage, a stackable washer and dryer, and a sitting area for applying makeup. New style touches include antique brass finishes, Carrara marble countertops and a gold-tone grille over the radiator along the back wall.
Glum to Gleeful - Before. Black-veined tile covered more than half the wall and made the bathroom look really dark. After. White tiles cover the walls and floor, making the space light and airy. Next, Tanya Mclean and Nichole Skladan of Mango Design Co brought in teak and brushed gold materials to give the couple the midcentury style they wanted. Then, the design team added a boho rug, a paisley shower curtain and pieces of the couple’s art collection to give it a personal, and fun, feel.
Why A Bathroom is Worth Going Big. The bathroom can be a haven, a place where you take long soaks in the tub at the end of tiring days at work. Reason enough why a bathroom remodel is one of the best things you can do for you and your home.
Wall papers or paints matching the color scheme of the bathroom are very popular these days. Current trends in remodeling bathroom include vinyl or concrete flooring instead of tile flooring. The concrete can be colored to suit the color scheme of the bathroom. This is particularly good as the there are lot of water exposure in floors and concrete flooring will last longer.
