Light Transitional Bathroom by Cindy Grossmueller McClure

NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Small Bathroom - Third Place.

From past to present, this bathroom underwent a huge transformation. The pre-existing space was well past its prime and in need of repairs. Yet, it was a room that held a special place in the hearts of the homeowners which meant many of the existing elements needed to stay, including the blue wainscot wall tile, floors and fixtures.

The terracotta floor tiles were cleaned up and the grout was stained. The color of these freshened tiles inspired the rest of the design continuing with the blues of the stained glass mosaic tiles of the tub surround. Meanwhile, another example of old and new delivering on design can be found in the 1920s' retro-styled faucets showing well alongside the retained fixtures. The wainscoting was also refreshed and looks as good as new. Other highlights include a drinking fountain and an audio component introduced into the room originating from a whole house system. Today, the room serves as a spot with nice memories with the ability to create new ones for years to come.
