A Beachy Clean Bathroom Renovation

Our in-house interior designer Lauren Hoke worked with this Marietta couple to update their dark and dated primary bathroom. This included expanding the footprint to make room for a freestanding tub, a generous shower stall and a double vanity. The bathroom style mixes white, gray and warm wood, resulting in a look that recalls a dreamy beach vacation cottage. We like to think of this project as a beachy clean bathroom renovation.

Before

The bathroom design was chopped-up and dated. We expanded the footprint to make it more spacious and functional for our clients. This additional space allowed us to give them every item on their wish list.

After

Now the bathroom has everything on said wish list: A large shower stall, a freestanding tub, a double vanity and plenty of room between them all to maintain an airy feeling. The overall look is classic with a few details that give it the easy-breezy style of a dreamy vacation cottage. It’s a relaxing retreat where the homeowners can wash away the stress of their days.

The Calacatta quartz countertops and marble-like porcelain floor tile add classic touches to the room. And Shaker-style cabinetry and polished nickel faucets are timeless choices, while the black hardware and wall sconces update the look.

The rattan-wrapped mirror frames and shiplap walls bring in a casual beach vibe.

The sheers on the window are another beach-inspired touch. And they let in the natural light while providing privacy. The name of this freestanding, sculptural and minimalist tub is “Unwind” — and it certainly suits the room.

Tub Faucet

A floor mounted tub filler fits right into the corner. These homeowners opted for the additional hand wand. As a result, cleaning the tub is much easier.

A Large Shower

Expanding the footprint of the room made space for a generous-size shower stall. The window lets natural light directly into the shower. A pale gray hexagonal tile in the shower adds subtle contrast and a smaller scale to the space.

Lauren sourced an extra-long elongated subway tile for the shower walls — it’s an update on a classic. The handmade surface is uneven, which makes it more interesting and bounces the light around.

We were able to tuck the shower niche into the pony wall next to the tub. We love being able to place a shower niche in a spot like this because shampoo bottles can clutter up the view of an otherwise perfect shower.

Finally, a drain can be a wasted design opportunity we never like to miss out on. There are so many pretty options like this one available these days — don’t let the chance to add a nice detail pass you by.
