Modern Craftsman Bathroom Remodel

This post is very exciting for me because it documents my first official project as a freelance Interior Designer! I started work on this project in September and it was completed at the end of December. This post documents parts of the process and before and after photos.

Kind words from Nicole and David:

“My wife and I were very excited to begin a renovation of an upstairs bathroom, but overwhelmed by the seemingly endless options in regard to tiles, shelves, vanities, sinks, fixtures, paint colors and more. We are very grateful we had the opportunity to consult with Celia Friedman on this project. Celia listened to our hopes and ideas for this space and helped us to visualize options with her drawings, product comparisons and color and tile coordinating. Step by step, she helped us narrow down options until we ultimately worked our way to a final product that we are extremely pleased with.”

About the project: My clients envisioned remodeling and connecting their existing outdated pink bathroom to a small multipurpose room next door. The existing bathroom became the children’s bathroom and the small multipurpose room became the master bathroom. A toilet room connects the two bathrooms.fpFloor plan of the remodeled space.IMG_4482The first step was to help my clients decide between a traditional sink cabinet or pedestal sinks for the master bathroom. I sketched three options incorporating various accessories and colors to help with other design decisions. sketch and afterThey chose pedestal sinks!

The design concept was to cohesively blend modern, sophisticated materials and details with the existing craftsman style of the house. The master shower features a storage niche with luxury glass tile.IMG_6418The upscale subway tiles have a hand-made look that combines a traditional and contemporary style. The dark medicine cabinets and blue accent wall also help to distinguish this space from the children’s space.

This was achieved by matching the clawfoot tub and pedestal sinks, using two different subway tiles and coordinating the blue and green paint colors.IMG_6452The gray children’s vanity provides needed storage with a contemporary touch.
