Bathroom Remodel / January 6, 2019 / Amie Thibault
Tight Fit to Open and Bright - Before. The bathroom’s pipes had sprung a leak, and the homeowners used the incident as an opportunity to remodel the space. While they were remodeling, they borrowed some square footage from an adjacent closet to make the bathroom bigger. After. Now an antique pocket door opens up to a bigger bathroom with a herringbone-tiled floor and a vaulted ceiling. Designer and homeowner Eileen Deschapelles kept the bathroom’s basic layout mostly the same, but by raising the ceiling, she could install a larger, glass-walled shower and a skylight, making the bathroom brighter and more welcoming.
Uncomfortable to Luxe - Before. The 1970s fixtures and finishes had seen better days and the toilet and tub were uncomfortable. After. The black-and-white ceramic tiles on the floor make a fun and fresh statement in the narrow space. Designer Susan Klimala of The Kitchen Studio of Glen Ellyn then added in more black, white and gray features to keep the palette calm and inviting. The most dramatic change comes at the end of the room, where Klimala replaced the brown tub with a sleek white tub and sliding glass door.
