In this recent bath remodel, I listened to my client and kept the tub and the almost new commode in place. We updated the space into what my client says is "Like walking into a five star hotel every morning." And you should be that tickled with your remodel and your budget respected as well as your style.
Instead of the ole' double bowl routine, I incorporated a trough sink with two faucets and and centered a teak soap tray. The quarter cut cherry cabinets, framed mirror, tall storage cabinet and tub surround brought a sleek elegance to the room with it's warm undertones. On the floor a glitzy large format porcelain bronze tile added a texture to the room and was complimented by the iridescent chocolate wall tiles, placed horizontally on the shower walls.
A textured door created visual interest as well as a rain forest marble mosaic tile on the floor of the shower to pull the elements together. A built in seat completed the experience of a spa retreat right at home.
