WOW! Before and After: A Tiny Bathroom Lives Large!

You may remember our post a few months ago about the lovely peach bathroom that was screaming for a makeover. Here's where we spilled the dirty deets!

I'm happy to report that the project is finished and for a small space, it is LIVING LARGE!

Can you believe the transformation?

Before the remodel, the shower measured a tiny 22" wide. Eek! How did she shave her legs in there?
Working within the same footprint, but moving the fixtures around, opened up the space to allow for a larger shower. The glass enclosure also makes it feel larger.

The honed Carrera Marble was the perfect choice for the space. A subtle color palette also creates the illusion of space.

The homeowner had a history of leaks in the shower and a fool-proof and leak-proof shower was at the top of his wish list. Patrick installed the Schluter Kerdi Shower Kit to nip that in the bud!


This was the original design board presented to the client. When you hire Decor You Adore to design a room in your home, this is where we start. From there, all the selections are finalized and a detailed, scaled drawing is created.

Beautiful marble inset framed with pencil molding.
A nice design feature that Patrick added was placing the shower valve just inside the door OUT of the flow of water from the shower head. Now you can stay dry until you are ready to get wet.
Cararra marble subway tile (approximately $8 per square foot)

Floor Cararra mosaic: Approximately $12 per square foot.
 I just have to throw in some more Before picture so you can be amazed:

We chose a bypass door instead of a swinging door to save space and gain an added towel bar. Clear glass was the best choice to allow a visual flow throughout the space. If you have more room, "rain glass" is also available as an option. You can see the Kohler Bypass Door from Home Depot Here.

The homeowner custom made this medicine cabinet in his woodworking shop. Don't you love the detail of the outlet inside the door to charge the toothbrush? Brilliant!

The Martha Stewart Seal Harbor vanity is painted in Glidden Sharkey Gray.

 The wall color is Sherwin Williams Sea Salt.

 At just $399, this vanity from Home Depot is a great value.

If like the look of this inset toiletry shelf, it was custom designed and installed by Patrick (Poovey Construction). Contact the Decor You Adore design team to have one of these masterpieces installed in your home.

Have a happy humpday adorable readers! Today we're linking up with Not Just A Housewife!
