Did you know that the word “blah” is actually listed in the dictionary? Webster defines it as “a feeling of dullness, boredom, lethargy, likened to a winter’s day.”
My client’s master bath room was giving them a serious case of the “blahs” and a much needed overhaul was in order. The layout was a complete waste of space and the building standard finishes were not bringing in the contemporary glitzy look! There are a few finishing touches left to implement but this master bath has shaken the blahs!
Take a look at the BEFORE: The angled wall in the corner was taking up so much space and he existing cabinets were not providing the storage needed. The dated “hollywood” vanity lights and non descriptive mirrors needed to go too.
AFTER: WOW WOW WOW!!! This master bathroom does not even look like the same room! That pesky angled wall was torn out, the floors replaced with a charcoal tile and that accent wall….heaven! Individual free standing vanities bring in the contemporary feel my client was looking for.
Every glitzy bathroom needs a chandelier…
I’m am currently putting the finishing touches on this jewel! I can’t wait to share the final pics!!

Our Fort Worth Bungalow remodel didn’t stop with the kitchen, the existing bathroom needed a major face lift as well. The bathroom layout had to stay but with the addition of an updated vanity and a rustic “barn door” to enclose the new washer and dryer, this bathroom would fix up in a snap. We were working on a small budget so we kept the floors and area around the bathtub neutral by adding a travertine “look” tile. The existing tub would stay but lots of elbow grease brought back a new gleaming white finish. The fresh dusty blue wall color updated the space and brought the cottage feel back to the room.
Before: This bathroom looked pitiful when I first walked in. The floors, ceiling and existing sink area had to go. The door opened into the vanity area so changing the direction of the swing would be crucial to the function of the bathroom. The existing vanity area will need to go in order to make room for a washer and dryer. Once again, the ceiling tiles will be replaced with new sheetrock and the one existing light fixture does not do the room any favors!
The Result: This small bathroom now has light, charm and functions as the home’s laundry room too! It’s amazing what you can fit into a small room when you make the most of your existing space. With out tearing out any walls, we were able to open up this bathroom and create a place for the owner and their guest to freshen up. By changing the swing of the door, we created a nice walkway from then entry to the back of the bathroom. The addition of wall sconces on either side of the vanity brings a much needed light for getting ready.
