Before: Too Much GreenHomeowners Michelle and Peter Knorr have done a lot of work around their home over the years, but they haven't figured out to tackle the outdated bathroom.
The small space is dominated by a giant photograph of a forest and is trimmed on all sides by various shades of drab green. What's more, the toilet is too close to the door, and the bathtub is tiny. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Steven Whittle agree to take this forest outdoors, where it belongs.

After: Neutral HuesNow this bathroom has a fluid ocean feel, complete with a new pocket door and oversize tub surrounded by glass tile, plus a new shower curtain, cabinetry and hardware. Recessed lighting and decorative accessories add the perfect finishing touches.
