The main bathroom was lacklustre with its grey sink/toilet/tub/ bidet and its gold light fixtures. The out of fashion faux marble countertop with its dual sculpted sinks could not be missed, sitting atop a natural wood cabinet. Buyers did not take note of the bathroom's generous size, its two sinks, its 6 foot jetted tub, its bidet and the fact that there was a step-up to the tub which added interest to the space.
My goal was to camouflage the faux marble counter top and grey bathroom fixtures. To do so I had the walls painted a grey, very close in colour to that of the toilet and had the vanity painted glossy black. Then it was time to ice the cake. And voila!
I love the challenge of transforming bathrooms when renovating is not an option. The hotel style towel rack was strategically placed to hide an ancient, unsightly, large, plastic intercom cover . The towels were not cooperating so I used straight pins to keep them in place. One of the tricks of the trade Here's a cost breakdown:
