(Welcome to Bathroom Month! We're taking inspiring bathroom submissions from our readers and giving gifts in return. Join us. All info is here.)
Welcome to Leah and Nick in Oakland, veterans of three bathroom remodels, all of which were done in the last two years! We're posting the first one today: check back tomorrow and Monday for others. Leah says: The biggest project was the (only) bathroom in our house in Oakland. The house was built in 1941, but the bathroom had been redone in 1962 and the results were not pretty. For the remodel, we aimed to return the bathroom to a classic, period style -- something not unlike the bathroom may have looked when the house was built, but with warm, updated colors and a clean, simple sensibility. [before pics and a slideshow after the jump] We gutted the entire space and started from scratch.
We were really pleased with the results, and bummed that we only got to enjoy our new (old) bathroom for a couple of months before we wound up moving to a bigger house a few blocks away and selling this house, our first. Thanks Leah!
