Flickr Find: Ben and Sam's Bathroom Remodel

Here's an inspirational bathroom project that focused on removing non-functional elements, yet managed to gracefully incorporate 40 year old pink tiles- in a bathroom designed for two young boys no less! This bathroom remodel was sparked by a broken pipe- faced with the need to make repairs, these homeowners decided the time was right to exchange the old pink tiled floor and pink toilet for more neutral, modern fixtures. They removed a pony wall, added a sink, changed the lighting, and retiled the floor in their quest for a more functional space for their growing boys.

We've already expressed our affection for open vanities this week, so you know we love this new wood choice with marble counter and double sinks. The hex tile floor is an update that blends seamlessly with the age of the house while new faucets lend a sleek, modern air to the space. The new blue paint is a soothing choice that tmanages to work with the perfect pink tub and shower tiles that these homeowners chose not to replace. The final touch? A whimsical piece of art that serves as the only clue this is a children's bathroom. The end result is an updated bathroom that remains true to the original, and would work for an age.
