Remastered Master in Glen Ellyn

Kyle and Mindy moved into their house two years ago “in spite of the bathrooms”, intent on remodeling them sometime in the near future. The house is lovely a midcentury ranch set on a sprawling lot. Mindy had saved some photos to Pinterest as inspiration so we set out to put all those pieces together.

Here are a couple of before pictures. Notice all the wasted space in the hallway by the closet? Well, we decided to incorporate that area into the bathroom itself so that we could have extra room for cabinets as well as the light and view from the window to the great outdoors.

Here is a shot of the final space showing how we incorporated the space in the hall.

We mixed metals — chrome fixtures and lighting and black hardware and mirrors. We kept the rest of the materials neutral since it’s a smaller space. Mindy and Kyle have this bed (Rejuvenation walnut Perkins bed) so we found a wood that tied in nicely. We originally wanted walnut to match but found this cherry was a better value and a close enough match.

Mindy and Kyle needed storage, so we did a double vanity with a linen cabinet at one end.

We installed an acrylic tub with simple white subway tile and a storage niche for shampoo. I think the end result is fresh, clean and functional, don’t you?
