Today I?m excited to share the renovated hall bathroom at the flip house. This is a full bathroom in a single story home which was built in the mid 1980s. When we bought the house it was very dated so I came up with a design plan to give the home and this bathroom cosmetic upgrades for the purpose of resale. The footprint is the same as the original, but the finishes in this space are brand new from floor to ceiling.
So that the home will appeal to a wide market of buyers, the style I?m sticking with is transitional. I gave this bathroom a fresh new look and also introduced some pattern on the floor since the rest of this single story home has vinyl plank wood look flooring. (Catch a glimpse of the flooring here and here).
I like to mix traditional finishes (like wood and marble) with modern shapes. I kept this windowless space neutral by mixing wood/brown tones with plenty of white. Here?s a look at the remodeled space!
When we started this space was your basic 1980s builder basic blah bathroom. The oak vanity with a cultured marble top was old and a few inches too low. Notice the beige tile floors and classic 1980s vanity light strip. Here?s how it looked before the remodel:
The bathroom has a 4? wide niche where the vanity sits, I replaced it with a taller freestanding version. The walls were retextured so that they are now smooth, getting rid of orange peel texture makes a home feel brand new.
The paint is Glidden?s ‘White on White’ and it?s used throughout the home. I chose a bold geometric tile on the floor to add both pattern and interest.
The brown and white tones continue on a smaller scale with the diamond marble mosaic backsplash, it has small chocolate marble squares between the gray and white marble diamonds. The round mirror with a black frame adds a curved shape to a space with many repeating quadrilaterals.
I decided to have some fun with this floor since it?s the only tiled floor use...
