Before and After

Transitional Guest Bathroom Makeover – Mood Board & Before and After

Our kitchen wasn’t the only room affected by our recent KITCHEN REMODEL! Our guest bathroom received a total makeover! Since it had the same tile that was being removed throughout the house, we decided it was the perfect time to give that bathroom a makeover! We transformed it from dark and traditional to updated and transitional!

This bathroom serves as the bathroom for my 3 youngest children AND the bathroom that guests use when they are on the first floor. It gets a lot of use and hasn’t been touched in the 10 years we have lived here {except for a new mirror and light}.

I remember reading somewhere that a powder room is the perfect place to do something special in your home. Something unexpected. Our guest bathroom was anything BUT that! So that simple idea of creating a “special room”, was the driving inspiration behind this makeover.

Take a look at the guest bathroom before…

This bathroom lacked pizzaz! Small bathrooms can be so fun! Since they are unconnected to other rooms, they feel special like a tiny jewel box with hidden treasures inside.  I wanted our new bathroom to feel like a tucked away surprise.

Since it is good to create flow from one room to another to give your home some continuity, I looked for a way to tie in our newly remodeled kitchen with this bathroom. Because the kitchen showcased mixed metals, this seemed like the perfect way to link the two rooms together.

So, to start redesigning this space, I followed the DESIGN PROCESS I shared HERE. I started pinning photos for inspiration {you can follow along with me on Pinterest HERE}, and creating a list of products I liked. You can follow this same process to redesign any space in your home.

Once you gather all of your inspiration, create a mood board to help you visualize the room before you make any purchases.

Here is the mood board I created after gathering some inspiration…

I became so excited seeing the vision come together on the computer screen!!!! This is such an amazing way to help you make selections for your project.

We loved all of our fixtures from our master bath remodel so much, we decided to use Delta again for this remodel. They have an amazing selection of products for every budget and their quality is fantastic. I love the polished nickel finish. It looks silver but then has a subtle gold hint to it, giving it some warmth.

Below are a few shots of the demo and remodel process. I will be sharing the all of the details and reveal next week!

The shower walls look like marble but they are really a 12 x 24 porcelain tile from Arizona Tile {HERE }! The floor is a Calcutta Gold hexagon tile found here .

We had the walls skim coated to a flat texture then had wood trim added to look like wainscoting. Just wait until you see the finished product!!!! You may also notice the door to the toilet is gone and their is an archway in it’s place.

The same shaker cabinets and marble countertops were added in the bathroom as in the kitchen. I wanted this piece to feel like a piece of furniture instead of a bank of cabinets.

Next week I will share the full reveal and all of the detail! Here is a sneak peek until then!

  1. WOW…if it is anything like the kitchen make-over it is going to be a show stopper. I am updating my kitchen and am using your kitchen as my inspiration. Apparently I am not alone. When I went to Amazon site to look for some of the products it shows what products other customers have looked at….it was basically everything in your kitchen.

    1. Marion your comment brought a smile to my face! Thank you so much! Good luck with your remodel, I’m sure it is going to be beautiful! xo

  2. I think the before bathroom was lovely. But certainly you took up a few notches with your beautiful, very classy new bath. What do you use to make design boards? Not being a blogger nor possessing great computer skills I have no idea how. We move into a new house in 10 days and I need to be thoughtful as I decorate.

    1. Thanks Pamela! You can google how to make a mood board and tutorials will pop up. I just drag images of products I like to my desktop and then add them to a photoshop document. This will let you try different pieces together and five you an idea of what your room will look like. I think I need to do a tutorial on how to make one since they are so so helpful! Best wishes in your new home!!!! xo

  3. Randi, I LOVE it!!! We must all have bathrooms on the brain this week because I just revealed my powder room for the first time today! I love the moldings you’re doing and I actually just chose that sconce for a client, in silver though. Everything is perfect in here and I can’t wait to see the full reveal soon!!! You are so talented my friend!!! Xoxo
