Tiny and windowless doesn't have to mean boring, just as this homeowner proves in this before and after bathroom makeover, as seen at Apartment Therapy.com.
As seen here, this is a pretty standard -- and yes, basically boring -- bathroom. When you're working with such a small space, picking your battles becomes important.
Emily opted to remove the bathtub and go for a floor to ceiling tiled shower area. She also swapped out the old standard sink cabinet that would "hopefully force me to become more organized."
Her oversized subway tiles provide a subtle backdrop to the gorgeous antiqued/darkened fixtures throughout the bath area.
Emily's creativity can be an inspiration for any homeowner in a similar situation. Options could include:
- Instead of removing the bath, refinishing the bath and tiles for the black and white motif that can be so striking in small areas like this.
- Given the standard size of the pre-existing tiles, you could also copy this look by continuing with white tiles, floor to ceiling.
- Couple this change with dramatic shower curtains, black flooring (either wood-tile or painted floor) could be another very affordable option.
- Love the new sink! Another option might be to go for a pedestal, or wall mounted/free standing sink, or a table with spindle legs -- all of which gives you the option of opening up more space visually.
