Hall Bath Overhaul

When my friends Shira and Dave upgraded from a small apartment in the city to a house in the ‘burbs, they were very excited about all of the space they would have with their son Max. The space, however, was a bit outdated and needed some TLC, especially the two upstairs bathrooms. They decided to do the hall bath first since the cabinet was literally falling apart, and they did not want to bathe Max in the old cruddy tub.
This bathroom had great bones and quite a lot of space. The double vanity was large, but there was a lot of wasted space with the wall separating the toilet from the rest of the room. The wall also blocked a lot of the natural light coming into the space. By taking down the wall separating the vanity and the toilet, we were able to use a slightly bigger vanity, and the room is now drenched in natural light. The dark warm grey vanity stands out against the lighter tile and paint color, and the white top gives it a clean, crisp look.
They wanted to do something neutral, but not your typical white or biscuit. Instead we chose a newer color from Kohler called Dune, which is a soft taupe. We used blending tiles with a glass and stone mosaic accent to add some pop to the space. The floor tile is a wood-look porcelain that combines all of the colors used throughout the space.
What do you think of the play on neutrals?
