Turning a small master bathroom renovation into a visually larger space is done by tricking the eye to visually see the space larger.
This bathroom began as a green-walled monster, literally. The shower was in front of a window, walled in and cutting off the full potential of natural light shining in. The closet was only accessible from the bedroom which meant that one would have to walk out of the bathroom to get to the closet. The linen storage was not fully accessible due to a bifold door that could not completely open up to the storage.
Master Bathroom Renovation
A visual Manipulation
This home resides in a coastal community and the bathroom renovation was to take a green-walled bathroom and transform it into a coastal vibe. I always like to start with the right background color and to me, it just needed to be white and calming. Once that was established I layered out from there.
It’s All in the Fine Details
The little details of any design are what makes the design special. The blue decorative tile I used for the shower wall became a “wow factor” to build off of. Designing the back wall of the niche with the decorative blue tile is one of those special details. I also chose the decorative lighting sconces because the detail in the metal matched the pattern seen on the shower tiled wall pulling the design elements together.
The hardware was simplistic and had the shape of the sconces. I liked the crisp feel of the polished chrome finish.
Popping a Warm Color
The cherry on top of the design is the pop of a warm color I introduced to the design on the closet walls and the fabric chair. Every design needs something to ignite excitement and the hot coral hue did just that.
Taking a small master bathroom and creating a visually larger feeling space is about finding the right balance of color, texture, and shapes. The video gives you a glimpse into the transformation of the before and after space.
