Transforming a Bathroom with a Soft Color Palate

This home was built in the 1980’s and the homeowner wanted a practical and timeless design to maximize space and lighten this bathroom.

Shower – Before

In this picture, we see how the capsule-shaped shower with its enclosed shower and walled-in linen cabinet is anything but inviting. The plank style floor tile makes the room feel bigger by the placement and color.  By the way, there was a matching blue toilet in this bathroom and the picture was withheld for your benefit.

The wall and cabinets were removed as well as the very blue shower. As there was still a need for a place to store linens, a smaller cabinet is installed against a knee wall. The extra large shower was created with flat surface pebble stones on the shower floor and curb to create a spa-like feel. Three shower niches were added, so that all shower products can be stored while not being over crowded. The frameless enclosure with 3/8” thick glass makes a statement in this room! New shiny chrome fixtures are budget conscious and beautifully appointed in this room.


The new light fixtures, also in a chrome finish, compliment the shower trim and cabinet knobs. These light fixtures are not just on trend, they are also adjustable so that you can perfect the way the light bounces in the room. Clear glass bulbs are used.

Finally, the wood trim is painted white and the walls are painted with Sherwin Williams Sea Salt. And don’t worry, we made sure to replace that blue toilet with a pretty and new white one!
