Small 20's Bathroom

This town house was built in the early 1920's. The bathroom was very old and needed a nice remodel to give it some extra storage and fix a couple problems. The window was removed and replaced with glass block. This allowed a generous amount of light into the space, yet kept privacy when using the tub and helped to remove the problem of dry-rotting and/or mold on the window's frame. The bathroom had a really deep yet skinny pedestal sink that we replaced with more shallow yet wider cabinets. We also added a drawer base for extra storage. The medicine cabinet is a tri-open mirror for extra storage, this cabinet replaced a simple mirror that was hanging on the wall. We kept the original tub in the space since it was in such quality condition and added a shower rod with a goose neck tie-in that connected to the ceiling for support. The goose neck helped to keep the nostalgic feel of the space. We changed the color scheme to white and gray for the tile, a soft cream for the walls, and a deep red for the shower curtain and accents. All of this was tied together with a granite countertop. The Original color scheme was just black and white. The gray helped to lighten up the room a bit since the room is so tiny, and the cream and red helped to keep the room from being so monochromatic. The main goal was to keep this space true to its nature.

The tile...could add something unusual in the border area.
