Maggie’s 880 square foot Hudson River home only has one bathroom and this was it. The layout was outdated and cramped, there was no storage and the pink tile drew attention to how small the room was. Wait until you see this bath today.

Even though she ditched the pink tile, Maggie still managed to pack lots of sleek personality into this room, from the beadboard to the art to a repuposed DIY vanity. Great job!

From Maggie:

We reworked the floor plan, borrowing space from an extra closet in the neighboring bedroom. Opting for an airy palette of white and slate, we said goodbye to the pink and black tile. Our biggest win was the addition of a full size vanity, which was a thrifted dining room buffet that we painted and reworked to accommodate a mounted sink. We employed a couple of age old decorating tricks like a ceiling height shower curtain and a giant antique mirror to open up the space further. Since we only had one bathroom to furnish, we invested in high end plumbing fixtures. With the neutral palette we can update the artwork and accessories as our tastes evolve. We also love how functional the room is these days – working hard as our Master Bath, Guest Bath, Powder Room and next year, Kids’ Bathroom too!

Thank you Maggie!
