Before & After: A "Demoralizing" Bathroom Gets an Upgrade

My husband and I bought our house 7 years ago, in the city of Laval, a suburb north of Montreal. The layout of the bathroom was typical of the houses in the neighborhood. Since the first day I set foot in it, I did not like anything about that room. The shower was so narrow that we had difficulty washing our feet. The bathroom was as demoralizing as a rainy day.

I demolished everything, including the ugly shell-shaped soap dish and the strange podium around the bath. Goodbye bath, toilet and grayish sink. Ciao, sad blue ceramic with a floral touch. Hello, sunny bathroom!

I love the new graphics and straight lines. Subway tiles on the wall and small hexagonal ceramic floor give a chic effect to the room. The walk-in shower is separated by a large glass wall. This design allows the feeling of a larger space. And I also took the opportunity to add a floor heating. Oh happiness since autumn has arrived!

We also bought an old vintage dresser to transform it into vanity. Revitalizing worn furniture is important to us.

Thank you, Isabelle!
