We had to make a quick post about a bathroom renovation we did in Guelph back in February of this year. We got a chance to go back and take some photos recently to show it off. The style is just so different to what we usually encounter and we love all the details, which we are going to share with you. Read on to see what it looked like before and what upgrades were made!
Pssst, click to enlarge any of the photos.
Our clients wanted to update everything in their ensuite. We opted for a traditional colour palette and style which ran throughout their home. The vanity was taken out and replaced with a Darby Home Co. 60" vanity with one sink, as they wanted more counter space rather than a double sink and went with the matching mirror as it came as a set. The vanity was solid, well constructed, and of course, in the traditional style. We went with some shaded wallchiere sconces in classic bronze (find it here) on either side for some task lighting. We made sure the bathroom was well lit all around. Bonus, they are all on a dimmer! Did somebody say mood lighting.
The biggest upgrade by far was the shower. The bath tub was taken out completely to make room for a large barrier-free walk-in shower with natural stone tiles, fitted with Hansgrohe fixtures in oil rubbed bronze as well as a linear drain. Our clients wanted some privacy whilst taking a shower, and to deliver that we built a half wall and installed custom glass around the enclosure.
Okay, so we took the bathtub out. what took its place? Just an open area where you can enjoy a seat on the bench if you want to, or look at art while the heated floors warm up your feet. The nice thing about the heated floors that we installed is that you can program it to turn on whenever you like. So, lets say you program it to start during winter mornings just before you step into the bathroom... so when you do get in there you just say "ah, warmth." This area also beautifully displays the wainscotting we put around the room as well.
