A home is much like a person – it has an identity and character all its own. As you approach the redesign of your home, it’s important to stay true to your home’s character. A good remodel looks like it has always been that way. Once your project is complete, if your friends and neighbors ask you to remind them of what it looked like before, then you know you’ve done a good job!
This bath underwent a total face lift, yet it retained the character of a 1930’s era home. Black and white floor tile, white wainscoting, and a pedestal sink help to create the desired look. In a small space, it is important that attention be paid to every detail. Plastic wall tiles were removed and replaced with hand crafted wainscoting. An awkward countertop and sink were replaced with a pedestal sink, making the room feel more open. Black and white tile was chosen to stay true to the home’s 1930’s heritage. A wall-hung cabinet for storage, Pottery Barn sconces, and Restoration Hardware accessories help to give the bathroom its charm.
Handcrafted wainscoting takes the place of outdated plastic wall tile.
Wall mounted cabinetry adds more storage without taking up more room in an already small space.
This bathroom is full of small bathroom ideas! You can see this 1930’s bathroom in the Powell Construction design studio in Corvallis.
