Stephanie took a very small, very dated space and created a bright and charming oasis. She successfully combined the tastes of the two owners and expanded the room by smartly borrowing space from surrounding areas.

From Stephanie:

This Before & After project was a complete remodel of a dated, very small bathroom to create a true master suite complete with soaking tub. I reconfigured and combined several spaces, a bathroom and two closets, to create one large suite. I actually doubled the space by annexing the nearby closets and a portion of another bathroom.

The clients had differing tastes; the husband likes modern Spanish and the wife loves modern farmhouse style. The final result is a wonderful blend of both styles. The house was desperately lacking any style or charm so it was a priority to add in character and detail.

This was a very budget conscious job, but there was no skimping on style. I used inexpensive materials, such as the sliding barn door, 4″ white tiles in the shower, pre-made vanity, pre-fabricated counter top and splurged on a few things such as the encaustic tiles, from The Cement Tile Shop, which are a focal point in the room. This helped balance the budget.
