Elegant Primary Bathroom Renovation
In this elegant primary bathroom renovation, we gave the room traditional bones while adding fresh updates. The result of this balanced combination is a transitional style. Come take a look to get transitional inspiration for your own home.
Elegant Primary Bathroom Renovation Elements
Elements like marble countertops, Shaker-style cabinets, a freestanding tub a wainscoting give the room a classic base. Brass is another traditional finish. The marble-like veining in the floor grounds the room in a traditional material, while the elongated large-format shape freshens it up.
The sconces, faucets, hardware and clean-lined mirror frames add updated touches to the traditional elements. With transitional style, it’s all about the balance. In this room, the bones are classic, and the more modern touches come in through the room’s “jewelry.”
Tip: Practically speaking, “jewelry” items like faucets, hardware, mirror frames and even lighting are a lot easier to switch out. Items like tile and cabinetry are much more difficult to swap out and are much more expensive to change. So when making a trendier choice, make it in that jewelry category!
Functionally, the room has comfort-height counters, a makeup counter and lots of storage. This includes many drawers as well as double storage towers that anchor the vanity. Always consider everything you want to store in a bathroom and share that inventory with your designer.
The makeup table breaks up the long vanity. We love the cute skirted stool our clients chose for this area. We also love the way the countertop’s marble continues up the backsplash. This was the elegant choice for this room.
And in this elevated primary bathroom renovation, overmount sinks are back! These lend a classic 1920s Art Deco vibe. The faucet silhouettes are at once Art Deco-inspired but also modern.
Elegant Primary Bathroom Renovation — Classic/Modern Mix
The freestanding brass faucet also adds a more modern touch to this amazing freestanding bath. It has a shape that nods to the 1920s, but its sculptural look feels fresh.
When the goal is an elegant primary bathroom renovation, lighting plays a very important role. This oversized Hicks pendant makes a big statement over the tub. It adds brass and glass to the palette. And check out its elegant chain!
Tip: We recommend putting at least one bathroom light like this on a dimmer. Turn it down before bed. That way, when you get up in the middle of the night, you can flip the switch to a darkened room.
Traditional wainscoting can take on splashes better than drywall would have. And it lends a custom and finished feel to the room. Custom millwork will always add a more rich, architectural feel to your home. We also love the subtly coastal coral artwork over the tub.
Practical considerations seen here include hooks next to the shower door for towels, as well as a towel bar over the tub. There’s also a handy shelf tub for soap, a book, perhaps a glass of wine?
Again, there’s a mix of classic and updated touches here in the shower. While subway tiles are classic and very 1920s, the elongated proportions are updated. Marble details add elegance. And the traditional penny tiles on the floor lend a playful touch.
Again, another important practical element is shown here, and it’s a game-changer. The small lower niche is a shaving niche, good for propping the foot while shaving your legs!
Finally, using a clear glass shower enclosure keeps the room feeling light and airy.
