You may remember Lee, whose Midtown East kitchen got a serious upgrade, transforming from a dark, cramped, dated space into a bright and minimal galley kitchen. At the same time Lee undertook his kitchen remodel, he also chose to renovate his utterly unremarkable late-70s bathroom, which had definitely seen better days.

Thanks to smart choices in fixtures and finishes, the new bathroom feels much cleaner, bigger, and brighter than the old one — hardly like the same space at all. A few notable features: the wall-mounted sink vanity, which allows space to flow under it, and the frameless shower door that eliminates the visual clutter of a curtain.

Another thing that helps the new bathroom feel much bigger is the elimination of all those grout lines. The large-format glass tiles on the wall are matched with large-format grey tiles on the floor for a bathroom that's effortlessly simple and elegant — and a whole lot easier to clean.

Lee found his contractor, Evros, through Sweeten, an online resource that connects New York-area homeowners with designers, architects, and contractors. You can read more about this project and see more photos on the Sweeten blog.
