Over the past month or so, I've been working on finalizing the design for each room at the EGR flip. Our crew is working FAST, which is great, but also mean this designer needs to kick it into gear and get every selected ASAP! The primary bathroom tile selections are due on Monday!
Here is a "before" photo of the original primary bath, which was not attached to the primary bedroom. It was dark, crowded, and needed a lot of love! To expand the bathroom, we stole some space from the adjoining bedroom.
The 4th bedroom will become the primary en-suite with a HUGE walk-in closet and attached bathroom. Below is the view from inside in the 4th bedroom, looking at the old bathroom. The doorway to the right of the bathroom has been eliminated. The new entrance will come from the primary bedroom which is behind the wall to the right.
The original bathroom is behind this wall with the "X" which has been taken down. A new wall has been built in the middle of the bedroom which will divide the future bathroom and closet.
This view is of the new wall. The double vanity will be in front of this new wall, and shower to the left! We've already come a long way!
Hopefully that provides some insight as to the layout. Now, let's talk design! This old home is bursting with character, and our goal is to restore the home to its original glory, while updating and modernizing it as well. To achieve this, we are keeping the design more traditional to match with the original era.
We have selected a white shaker vanity with polished nickel plumbing and hardware. The floor will be a vinyl tile that looks like soapstone. We are sticking with a traditional subway tile in the shower, but mixing it up with a fun pattern (currently deciding between straight herringbone or parquet!). A penny tile shower floor will complement the tile walls. To add warmth to all of the black and white, we will be installing brass plumbing and lighting fixtures.
A vintage rug, live greenery, colorful art, amber soap bottles, and Turkish towels will complete the room by adding texture and dimension, while also creating a necessary warmth. See below to shop this design.
The tile shower install is happening in a couple of weeks! This house has been rolling right along, with few surprises! Can't wait to watch this bathroom come together to it's fullest glory!
