I finally had the opportunity to take some photos of a basement bathroom project.
We started with a VERY small, cramped bathroom. Look how little leg room there was between the toilet & tub!
The adjacent space gave us the flexibility to move a wall to add some space to the bathroom. By moving the wall, we had room for a slightly larger tub, while still leaving adequate leg room in front of the toilet. By moving the bathroom door, we also now had more space for a larger vanity.
My client moved to Utah from California, and loved the idea of a beach-themed color scheme. Because we were working with a small space, we muted the colors - a light soft mix of grays, blues, and whites. We added texture through tile patterns and a custom weathered-look vanity.
Small bathrooms don't have a lot of room for extra design elements, so something both functional and aesthetic is key. This double recessed niche provides storage for shampoos and soaps, while also adding a dramatic design element to the tile surround.
Details such as a seamless tub, wire-brushed wood, cabinet hardware, edge treatments, and countertop lines really stand out in a small space, so choosing the right materials was important.
