90’s Bathroom Gets a Spa Update

As most of you know, I went back to work full time in September as a Project Specialist for Interiors at Lowe’s.  I help customers plan and manage their kitchen and bath remodels from start to finish and work Lowe’s provided independent general contractor to complete the job. This week was an exciting moment for me because it marked the completion of my first bathroom remodel project. The client had a nice but dated 5 piece master bath that was full of cultured marble and dated shiny brass fixtures. She said she had been wanting to make changes to the bathroom from the moment she moved into the house and was more than ready to make that happen.

Here’s what we were working with…

And here was the plan.

Using Kohler Devonshire fixtures, granite counter tops, tiles and accessories all available through Lowe’s we turned a dated bathroom into a spa-like oasis fit for 2017.

We salvaged the vanities and floors but everything else was headed for an update.

One of the biggest transformations was the removal of the old fiberglass shower insert and gold trimmed frosted door.

We did that with a Kohler Revel shower door, porcelain tile that mimics vein cut, honed limestone, and a mosaic tile with stainless steel accents.

With the old wallpaper removed we gave the wall a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams Alpaca, my new favorite color,

and a last minute addition of these beautiful Oval Framed French Wall Mirrors.

I couldn’t be more please with the results and neither could my client.

What a great start to a new chapter. I’m looking forward to sharing more of these transformations in the future.

    I work in kitchen/bath remodeling as well and it looks great! We just got a sample of the tile you used for the shower floor in our showroom and it’s getting a lot of attention. Congrats on finishing up your first project–bathrooms are tough–it feels like it should be easy in such a small space, but there are so many choices to make!

    • Thanks Rachel! Yes so many choices to make is right and I think people are shocked at the price of bathrooms as well. So much money can go into such a small space.

  3. Thanks for share 90’s Bathroom Gets a Spa Update

  4. Love the changes! It looks fabulous

    • Thanks Julia, the first one is always the hardest but me and the contractor worked well together and I learned so much. My second bathroom remodel finished up today, definitely went much smoother than the first.

I'd love to hear what you think!
