Happy Friday Everyone!
This week we are zoning into an interesting project. The client’s wanted me to transform their laundry room into a powder room. It was quite the challenge, but the result was pretty amazing! Oh and ps, I’m going to link some of the similar items from this room that I found online incase you wanted to try to implement this look in your own home. Ready, set, read!
About the clients:
This delightful family of five reached out to our firm to help them with their home remodel. They were going back and fourth between the decision to sell and move into a bigger home or stay and add on to their existing home. Loving the neighborhood and the school district their 3 kids attended, they decided to stay and build out their current place into their dream home. Robeson Design to the rescue! I began to create several different ways they could add square footage and overall value to their home while still enjoying the community atmosphere their neighborhood provided.
What they wanted:
Among the areas needing to be re-worked, Mrs. Client desperately wanted to relocate the laundry room upstairs, alleviating the physical stress of the staircase run every time she did a load of laundry! By doing this it opened up the current laundry room space for a much needed powder room for the downstairs.
- The 5′ X 8′ space needed to have a toilet and a sink area, but the clients requested a bit of privacy between the two.
- Seeing that this new bathroom would be the last “teeth brushing” stop before the drive to school, so the 3 year old would need some extra special access for it to be fully functional.
Changes I Made:
- I designed a fashionable partition using an affordable side light window pane to provide some privacy while using the loo.
- I designed a custom vanity with storage for extra toilet paper and supplies, I even finished the vanity off with a hidden pull out platform built into the custom base molding for easy reach so the 3 year old could reach the sink area for any last minute teeth brushing 😉
- I installed floor to ceiling grass cloth wallpaper in both silver and white colors.
- I designed a carved out niche behind the toilet area with ambient light for accessories.
- I used 8″ baseboard and 6″ crown molding to add a tailored finish to the room.
- I included two pendant lights in my design, for both the right and left of the vanity as well as spot lights for the art and accessories. All lights are on dimmers, which allows for functions s well as ambience when needed.
- I carried the same hardwood flooring throughout the entire house, into the powder room keeping the flow seamless.
- I included the clients round mirror that was previously being used in the living room by hanging it above the new vanity in the bathroom. A simple change of finish from the preexisting black and brass to a new wood looking faux finish, and whallah! A brand new look!
