INVERNESS BATHROOM REMODEL
BATHROOM REMODEL OVERVIEW
Working with bold clients on this project, they were brave enough to own their love for color and pattern and so the project started out by selecting the perfect blue for the cabinetry.
This existing Inverness bathroom was an outdated 60’s bathroom with original wallpaper and an inefficient floor plan. The space needed a full overhaul inside and out. We replaced all the galvanized plumbing, swapped out the tub for a stand up shower, relocated the plumbing waste stack and brought the double-sink vanity front and center so you can’t miss it right as you walk in.
Whether your eye catches the chevron mosaic backsplash, the three-dimensional focal wall in the shower, or the custom Amish cabinetry in a bright cobalt blue, there is no shortage of interest in this bathroom. We added linen storage with a stacked tower cabinet and created contrast with a dark accent wall behind.
Overall, the client was so excited to have such a modern and fun bathroom that is not only unique, but significantly more functional for their everyday needs.
BATHROOM DESIGN OBJECTIVES
BEFORE THE BATHROOM REMODEL
Have you ever seen a bathroom that had matching wallpaper and shower curtain? Well if not, this Inverness bathroom is a first for me too. Everything was original to this 60’s bathroom, including the mechanicals behind the walls. To say it needed an overhaul is an understatment.
The layout was not ideal and the tub did not even work properly anymore. The vibe of the room was not what these young clients felt portrayed their style and personality and they were ready for a change.
BATHROOM DESIGN CONCEPT
A full gut on both the walls and plumbing for this job was required in order to bring this original 60’s bathroom into the current century. The outdated, cast iron tub didn’t drain, the tile wainscoting was dingy and the wallpaper was peeling off the walls.
Swapping the toilet and vanity locations allowed for greater privacy and now the feature wall is the first thing you see as you walk in the bathroom, instead of walking straight into the toilet area. This client wanted bold patterns and colors so we chose a bold blue for the cabinetry and playful tiles for features in the room.
DURING THE BATHROOM REMODEL
It’s always exciting when the drywall starts going up. Relocating alot of plumbing lines in this bathroom proved to be a big job, but once we close up the walls, it’s mostly smooth sailing from there. Bravo to our tile installer on these awesome tile features. They may all the difference and really added personality to the space. This was not an easy job and he executed it perfectly!
