Say Ah, For The Spa! Space Makeover

After my son went off to college, his Studio Apt. bedroom needed to go back to a functional rental space. So we decided to make it into a Spa. It needed a new floor badly, new paint and a bathroom overhaul. Here’s how it unfolded.

Bathroom Dilemma Eliminated

Does your bathroom resemble this below?

Clearly in need of an update, I went to work to give this bathroom the modern update it was desperately seeking.

New paint, updated ceramic tile around the tub and shower, new pebble shower floor, new glass shower door, new window treatments, floor tile, art, and spa-like decor.

A pebble floor in the shower is easy to incorporate. The pebbles come in sheets and they are applied like ceramic tiles. The add a wonderful tactile feeling to the feet while showering.

To save money, the existing cabinets and mirror frame were painted in an expresso brown. Electrical was updated in the mirror wall to allow for a lighted wall-mount makeup mirror.

Now this bathroom has a feel of a space you’d want to relax in.
