Powder Room Remodel

The perfect time to redo a small bathroom is when you're already doing another bigger project in your house.  You have to go through all the same steps, with the same subcontractors, why not kill two birds with one stone? 

I worked on a remodel of a master bath in this house and we tacked the powder room on too. I'll share that project, here's the before pic of the powder room.


A little tired, a little dated, and ready for a facelift. Ooooo, that pedestal sink!

Yes, this powder room has a shower.  There's a room next door that can be used as a bedroom. The homeowner wanted to keep the limestone tile floor that spread into the hallway and we decided to replace all the other finishes and fixtures.  She wanted a warm look, with golden tones and wood finishes.


A cultured marble shower box, dated wallpaper, and fixtures didn't do this home justice.

construction  progress - great tile job


We used more of the same limestone that was on the floor of the bathroom in the shower with a nice subtle pattern, a new custom built vanity to fit perfectly in the niche, a shapely limestone counter and splash (because you know I love a curvy backsplash), and pretty wallpaper in a rich, coppery color. 

The result....a warmer look that relates to the existing finishes elsewhere in the house that feels a lot more special!

(My new website is still being tweaked for a bug.  I'm  hoping for next Monday! This is killing me!)

Hi Naz,
She selected that herself. I designed the vanity and countertop/backsplash to frame it.

Beautiful transformation! Love the way that shower turned out!

Carla, You did a great job. So much fun to see before and afters.


I am in love with that vanity backsplash...dying to do it somewhere :)

I'm not a big fan of the vessel sink but I love what you have done. Can you tell me how wide that vanity space is?

Happy Monday.

I love seeing your work Carla - you have so much talent! That looks great and I agree (after having had contractors in my house for weeks on end) - if you're going to do a remodel, go for it all at once!

Jessie said...

Beautiful work, Carla. The powder room feels so much brighter and more spacious than pre-makeover!

Have a great week!

As usual, fabulous work, Carla! You do a lot of remodels. I love seeing them, and thanks for showing the before photos. Looking forward to your new website.

So, so beautiful. I love the updates and the warm feel of the new powder bath. The wallpaper is gorgeous. At first I thought it was a faux finish.
Great hit it out of the ballpark.
