The half bathroom in Kathleen's 1979 quad was stuck in a time warp lacking architectural detail. Her dull, lifeless bathroom lacked the luxurious and soothing feel that she desired. Kathleen's goal was to make a dramatic and instant impact on her room. To begin her bathroom makeover, Kathleen started by gutting the space. She removed the worn carpeting and old dilapidated baseboards and installed new carpet and baseboards in rich cherry.
Kathleen chose a European styled vanity/sink/mirror combination as the inspiration for her remodeling project. Kathleen made a dramatic and instant impact on her bathroom by using the longest wall as an accent wall and painting it flat black. The light gray ceiling, the glossy white crown molding and the metallic wash technique used on the remaining walls created drama and warmth. Contemporary lighting and black and chrome decorative accents provided the finishing touches. Kathleen's bathroom went from outdated and boring to luxurious and modern.
Metallics look great next to glass.
Use color on the ceiling.
