A Colorful And Clean Bath Refresh
From dated and drab, to fresh, bright and new. A little paint, a new countertop and sink along with a few accessories makes a huge difference and goes a long way! This bathroom looks and feels completely different from where it started.
Updating a bathroom doesn't always entail brand new everything. In this bathroom, located on the main floor, serves as the main bathroom for the master bedroom, the kids, and guests. This bath had a large vanity that was in good condition and a bathtub that was also in good condition and needed to stay.
This bathroom was beige, brown and had a very builder grade look - generic.
We wanted to add some color, personality and excitement! This family is outgoing and loves color. So why not have the bathroom, a space that gets used multiple times a day; day-in and day-out, reflect who they are.
(Side note, this is the same family I worked with to update their living room.

To break it down-
The main inspiration for this the bathroom refresh was this lovely dog painting of their family pet. I love it...speaking as a dog lover myself! This painting is located on the wall across from their vanity.
We selected a dark, rich color to paint the existing vanity. The new cabinet color really makes the existing brushed nickel hardware pop! Exchanging their countertop out for a new quartz countertop that had color and movement and updating their sink for a crisp white rectangular sink also helped bring personality to this bath. We reused the existing brushed nickel faucet as well. By replacing the countertop and sink, the faucet looks brand new with the new look. Painting the walls a neutral gray and the existing trim work a creamy white really brightened this bath.
Here's a closer look at the vanity. What a difference a little paint makes!
Pairing an updated vanity light fixture and a modern black round mirror brought this bathroom up to modern day.
Matching the hand towel ring and toilet paper holder to the rest of the metal in the space helps give a clean look. And when you have a bathroom that is shared with guests and kids, adding a small container or two on the countertop for a few items that need to have quick and easy access without rummaging through the drawers is nice touch. It keeps things nice and neat! And it's an opportunity to add more color and texture to your space. This woven, lidded container brings in a little warmth with the brown tone, and goes nicely with the added short floating shelves above the toilet.

I love to see before and after's! Let's compare:
Updating your bathroom along with the rest of your home will brighten your day! It's a space we may not want to spend too much energy and money on, but it's a space that we actually spend more time in than we think. Switching out the paint and a few other items can give your space a whole new look and feel. Giving your bath a refresh can certainly help with starting your day out with looking your best!
