A shot of colour for a bathroom: Sneak Peek


When I say we are adding in a shot of colour for a bathroom, I am not kidding! A couple of weeks ago, I shared what we had planned for a powder room makeover for this family. I can’t wait to show you what we actually picked for that space because it’s not anything that we were thinking of!

For the Primary Bathroom, we are going to have a lot of fun with colour. So let’s begin with the planning of the space first!

As Is

I’m happy to report that the bathroom has already gone through demo, so it actually doesn’t look like this anymore.

As Is Plan with double vanity, massive corner soaker tub, and small shower.

The Wish List

It’s often that my clients request a larger shower. It seems that in today’s world, a spa shower for the primary bath is a must. For this family, they actually love taking a bath – just not in one they could drown in!

On the wish list were the following items:

  1. Maintain a his/her sink and vanity space.
  2. Increase the storage.
  3. Create usable storage.
  4. Install a larger tub/shower combination.
  5. Add colour!

The Options We Looked At

While a shot of colour for a bathroom was on the list, we first had to figure out the best use of space for this family. We looked at three different options.

First Option

Option 1 for Primary Bathroom | Keeping all of the plumbing in the same space definitely saves money in the budget.

Second Option

Option 2 had us moving the tub and vanity. By moving the tub to this spot, we would need to build a wonky-ass wall. While this plan gave a great space to get ready in the morning, this plan didn’t check all of the boxes.

Third Option

After reviewing Option 1 and 2, we also decided to look at separating the vanities. This truly would give a his/her space.

What We’re Moving Ahead With

While all three options had pros and cons, it was Option 3 that my clients decided to go with. Now that the function was planned out, it was time to get to the pretty. And this is where the shot of colour comes into play.

The Shot of Colour

Vanity Colour

Let’s start with the wonderful, fun, vanity colour!

Not everyone is brave enough to add pops of colour with their fixed elements. As you may see in the rendering, we’re going to be adding in more colour with the decor items. I’ve pulled together some easier, non-permanent ways to add some colour into your home.
