Find out what it took to bring a dated bathroom into the 21st century.
For this Florida bathroom remodel, designer Katheryn Cowles worked within a $14,000 budget to completely overhaul the outdated space.
We spoke with Cowles to find out about the goals and challenges she faced during this transitional bathroom remodel.
Adding the zing to this otherwise ho-hum bathroom was a challenge. The Linkasink mosaic sink was a happy find acquired along with the bronze patina tiles from a tile company that was relocating. These items were able to be incorporated within the allotted budget.
I had specified the same red wall paint for the ceiling. I don't know what I was thinking the day I did the specifications. Red paint is super reflective and needs to be carefully incorporated when designing a small space. Definitely, do not do it on the ceiling. The ceiling is now a creamy white.
Again, the red that will never again be specified for the ceiling.
The red wall paint makes everything pop. The mosaic onyx lavatory and the bronze tile appliquéd in the shower and as a backsplash at the vanity are all features that make the design of this small bath.
