Classy Beachside Bath
Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted since 2018! 2019 was an exciting year with BIG projects. I can't wait to share some pics with everyone!
I'm starting with a master bath in Huntington Beach, CA. It was small but LOADED with charm! Thank you to the homeowners for letting me lead them out of their comfort zone. We started with an original bathroom that wasn't as functional as it could be and a closet that definitely needed help!
The master bath was originally a cramped space with a tub/shower combo. The goal was to install a steam shower and a freestanding tub. This was impossible with the existing space, so for those who know me, you know what's coming! Move walls!
On the other side of the bathroom was a reach in closet that was not very functional.
We took out the wall divider between the vanity and toilet, framed in a shower, and raised the ceiling to give the bathroom an open feel.
A window in the master was expanded to be french doors opening to the beautiful backyard.
The finished result? Check it out!
We went with a old-fashioned/beachy look, if that is a thing! The steam shower has a waterfall bench, classic subway tiles accented with concrete tiles and a linear drain (concrete tiles must be sealed well!!)
The fixtures and hardware take us back to a bygone era. Wallpaper gives a special touch to the vanity wall - and who doesn't love board and batten wainscoting on the other walls?!
To polish it off, we have a freestanding tub under the window. The widows were handmade.
In order to make room for the tub, we moved the wall to the master out a foot and added a small walk-in closet where the former closet was.
The first door is the new closet followed by a built in cabinet at the entry to the master. We added a shaker wainscoting to the wall where the headboard will go.
To the right are the french doors leading to the back yard.
