After five very long months, the Frog House is on the market. What a relief. Now is just has to sell…ha! We are photographing the house in stages, but I’d like to share what we have so far: the master bath and the kitchen/dining space. Today, let’s dive into the master bathroom remodel. The before and afters are so satisfying! Lets take a look at where we started:
This was mostly wasted space, added on during a bizarre addition in the nineties. It had laundry but a lot of square footage that wasn’t being used for anything but clutter. As you can see in the photos, the original exterior windows from the bathrooms and bedroom are still there, so you could see into the utility closet (and into the bathrooms). It was weird and didn’t make any sense. The entrance was in the living space (you entered through the dining room). The floors were linoleum and there was one cheap light source on the ceiling.
This is what it looks like now:
It’s hard to believe it’s the same space! Now the room is open, airy, and inviting.
The walls were resurfaced and painted with BM Chantilly Lace (both walls and trim). We kept everything in the white/cream/tan/gray category to keep it calm and neutral. Keeping a neutral color scheme allowed us to mix different types of surfaces and metals. We used two types of marble (one on the floors in a herringbone pattern, another in the shower), and a quartz countertop for the vanity. We mixed bronze and nickel metals, and they all play well off each other.
How beautiful is that runner? Coveted Home is a local KC store that has the most beautiful curation of new and vintage goods. It does a great job at pulling the room together.
