Project: Full Bathroom Remodel with Updated Layout in Melrose Victorian Home

Our clients wanted to update the look and feel of their main bathroom with a classic style that is appropriate for their historic home. They were also looking to add a little luxury to the bathroom (the only full bath in the home!) with double sinks in the vanity, more storage, and a bidet toilet.

We increased functionality by updating the layout, moving the bathtub to the back window wall, and adjusting the size of the window. We also connected an underutilized back hallway to the main upstairs hall by closing off a second entrance to the bathroom and adjusting the size of an adjoining bedroom – bonus that now the back hallway is flooded with natural light! The new bathroom is bright, grand and luxurious, with a serene color palette!

The new layout allows a large vanity with double sinks, highlighted by bright polished chrome faucets and sconces that mix harmoniously with black-framed medicine cabinets and ash gray hardware.

We flipped the vanity to the opposite wall, allowing better flow into the space from the existing doorway.

The bathtub is centered on the back wall within a framed alcove, which allows the tub and shower to feel more intimate within the room’s 8.5 foot ceilings.

The tall linen cabinet goes all the way to the ceiling to maximize storage.

We used classic white subway tile with slightly contrasting grout, Carrara Marble trim on the window and niches, polished chrome shower fixtures, and a deep soaking tub!

The 2-inch hexagon porcelain floor tile, in a Carrara Marble look, is also used in the shower niches.

The serene color palette includes one of the client’s favorite paint colors, Benjamin Moore Palace Pearl, and the subtle contrast of the materials give a classic and historic feel to the space.

It was such a pleasure bringing this bathroom design to life for this wonderful family in their beautiful Victorian home!
