“Before and After” renovations are always a hit whenever I share them here on Home Bunch and I am sure this bathroom remodel done by a dear friend of mine, Mary Joseph of Interior Solutions by Mary – @interiorsolutionsbymary, will inspire and give you a little push to finally start planning on that master bath renovation you have being waiting for so long.
Here, the designer shares how she transformed a dark and dated bathroom into a dreamy modern farmhouse spa-like bathroom:
“My goal was to transform my clients bathroom from a 1998 dark and dated bath into a Modern Farmhouse Spa Bath. After looking at the space and learning what my clients needs were, I started the design plan process. I wanted to use a clean and monochromatic look, so I chose to use a creamy white paint color throughout the space. Once that was decided, I layered in a mix of texture and design elements for visual interest. Those design elements included: the shiplap around the tub, the stained wood beam, stained wood floating shelves, the wood beaded chandelier, and the iron vanity mirrors. Based on the lighter color scheme, I also knew I wanted to use wood tiles in the space to help warm up the room and ground the space.
What the before photo doesn’t show, is that the bathroom was also lacking in storage. I created extra storage by designing custom vanities that were taller than their existing vanities and had deep drawers and full extension drawers. We also added electric to the drawers for hot irons and blow dryer. I also decided to raise the archway above the tub to open up the full view to the plantation shutters and accentuated the ceiling height of their bathroom. The addition of the wood beam was done to add warmth and character to the space. I decided to add shiplap around the tub area in order to add another layer of texture and dimension to the space. Both the beam and the shiplap work together to draw your eyes into the room and directly to the spa tub. And, the beaded wood chandelier, which is the same color as the floors, accentuates it all, just beautifully!”

“My clients review said that she feels like she is walking into the Spa every morning when she walks into her new bath, and I couldn’t be happier as that the exact feeling I wanted her to have. As soon as you open to french doors into this master bath, it gives the feeling of welcoming you and drawing you into the space.” – Mary Joseph.
