Time to Choose Finishes Now for a Bath Remodel at the Georgian

Yep. Does this sound like exciting, creative fun to you? It aint. There’s a reason bath design pros and interior designers charge what they do! Experienced design knowledge is worth every penny. Juggling the decisions, labor, and expenditures is always a challenge even when you’re seasoned real life DIYers like us who have careers outside of the work. For the bath’s design, I’m staying away from trends and listening to this home’s architecture. Timeless, thoughtful design elements customized for us that don’t shout “2020s renovation” can’t happen swiftly or cheaply. Ya know? Everything is much more expensive now. If you are seeking Bath Remodel Ideas, I hope the inspiration and wisdom here helps.

Bath Remodel Ideas & Inspiration to Help

Does my attitude sound like I’m too much of a perfectionist? I am probably just tired. I already know we’ll make mistakes and choices that in the end seem wrong for others. But we are truly trying to create a calming beautiful space in the awkward footprint with which we have to work.

The primary bath before renovation - dark brown vanity, dark brown granite top, and tons of brown tile - Hello Lovely Studio.
DURING demo of floor and Jacuzzi – you can see wall tile in the mirror’s reflection, and that’s my vintage clawfoot tub that will eventually live here.

It is awkward with too many angles (hello, 1990s), soffits, steps up to a sunken bath, a custom bench underneath the shower head instead of across from it, and hard dark surfaces everywhere. It is a funky clunky room with a million dollar view that deserves flow and elegance.

The thing about bathroom design? It’s SO PERSONAL. Just a zillion operational details even before a discussion of how it should look and feel.

In the before bath at the Georgian, a milk chocolate brown ceramic tile with tan grout made me very sad! Hello Lovely Studio.
BEFORE – Walls, shower and floors were graced with this brown tile.

For example, I can hardly see without my glasses so…lighting issues. My husband needs a particular level of technology and storage. With my osteoporosis and Raynaud’s, the old bath’s safety hazards made it unusable for me (didn’t use it a single day since we bought the place).

DURING the bath renovation, the shower was reframed and a stone floor is being installed

Also, a redesign is trickier than starting from scratch. Moving existing plumbing and electrical takes time, specialized skills, and wads of cash.

During renovation of our bath at the Georgian - Hello Lovely Studio.
Our bedroom is less tranquil retreat than dusty storage container with makeshift window coverings and exhausted emptynesters.

Way before picking pretty materials, there’s the labor of erasing what is existing. For us that meant demo of a ton of dark tile in a large custom shower, giant steps and platform surrounding a Jacuzzi tub, and tile on walls and floor. Tile is heavy!

DURING the bath renovation, the old vanity was removed, wall repair is happening, and plumbing is moved

Add to the list seven feet of heavy cabinets, granite, tub, glass walls, lighting, and mirror. So much work even before important hidden electrical and plumbing details are addressed.

When you’re creating a custom design as we are, the bonus is you can include the features you know will serve your daily needs. The catch is, trying to also make it all look and feel pleasant and harmonious with the rest of the home.

Tub niche during renovation of our bathroom at the Georgian - Hello Lovely Studio.
Is that an arched, working window you added to the shower? Oui. The tub niche is going to be so relaxing with a view of the forest and no privacy issues. Cast iron tubs are SWELL for bubble baths and much needed relief from our former hazardous tub platform tiled steps.

We’ll be working on the bath this weekend, and I hope to order some of the fixtures. I’ll check in soon with a mood board and hopefully good news and progress!

Our Former Bath

We opted for separate, individual, freestanding vanities and then created a custom bridge as a makeup area. In our new bath, I also want two vanities, but with less space, I’ll tuck the makeup area somewhere else.

I liked how the angles of our vanities’ top and base echoed other architecture in that space. In our new home, the angles and quirky turns are out of control! So I want simple edges and lines wherever I can get them.

I also appreciated the base molding of our former vanity cabinets as such custom details help the pieces feel more like furniture. We plan to add our own custom finishing millwork here at the Georgian.

One thing I missed in our former bathroom was drawer storage. We lived with zero and adapted, but storage will be a priority in the Georgian bath.

Here are a few ideas for cabinets and vanity organization:

It’s the mirrored base in the bins that really does it for me!

How to Choose the Right Style Vanity

Choosing the right vanity for your bath is important since it is a focal point that sets a tone. There are more choices than ever within the world of custom design and inside your local hardware store.

Notice the Relationship of Vanity and Top

Are you a fan of high contrast between the vanity and vanity top? When you’re collecting and studying photos of bath vanities you love – notice whether there’s a pattern. Does your eye like high contrasts, low contrasts, ornamentation, minimal style, or modern lines?

What are Your Lighting Needs for the Vanity?

I love love love beautiful sconces like these, but we may not have room for this lighting option. The most flattering light at the vanity is when it comes from the sides of your face, but it’s not always possible when space is limited.

Design: Betsy Burnham…hello lovely indeed.

I also have some thoughts about this flattering light thing. At my age, I am not standing at the mirror, grooming for long periods of time or studying my face. Knowing this, I’ll be able to relax a little if I have to settle for overhead light instead.

But that won’t stop me from sighing when I see something as extraordinary as:

Once you start looking closely at pretty bathrooms, it becomes clear that there are endless lighting options and not a singular formula for where the lights should go.

We will probably need to do above the mirror lighting for our own remodel, similar to this beautiful design:

Simple Bath Refresh

Before we painted this vanity, it was a 20-year old builder-grade oak vanity with orange stain. Just that simple change, even without changing the old faucet or cultured marble top made a big difference.

This paint color (above) is an interesting charcoal color with both brown and navy blue undertones. In some lighting, it looks like oil rubbed bronze, and in others, a soft black.

Repurposed Antiques for a Traditional Vanity

Another vanity with a lamp! So gorgeous! If you have the opportunity to repurpose an existing vanity, antique, table, console, etc. what a blessing!

Certain cabinets can be retrofitted and tweaked to work as beautiful vanities, but you should start the planning process with function and storage as priorities.

I was all set to repurpose our short, old, existing solid wood vanity by modifying it to be a better height, refinishing it and giving it a new top. (The sinks were almond so they had to go, and the brown granite top wouldn’t relate to any of the other changes made.)

However, the custom countertop alone cost more than new everything. I decided I didn’t want vessel sinks (to add height to the low vanity), and the labor of refinishing wood is a cost too since time is money.

This is an important factor to note even if you are not planning any renovation projects. If you are buying a home that was remodeled–you should know prices for materials and labor have been high for several years now.

If you’re in the market for a home and see “new roof” or “new kitchen” or “new pool,” just know that it probably cost more than you think (and probably caused headaches that you’ll be able to skip!).

    Over the years I collected all the pieces for our powder bath remodel. A very old french mirror from a barn sale, a sink from a showroom remodel and a dresser to remake into a vanity. It took an incredible amount of struggle to get these items to work mainly because of heating vents and plumbing already the wall as it backs up to the laundry room. The struggle was mainly because it wasn’t an easy rework and took some thinking but my vision came to fruition. The only thing I regret is backing down on the heated floor.

      What a labor of love, Karen. It sounds so amazing. Heaating vents and ugly plumbing things…yes. You’re speaking my language. The hidden details are endless, and this bath feels as though it is as much work as the entire kitchen. So many moments of doubt! We are installing the heated floor in the next few days. We put one in the first home we built but not in our last bath and we too regretted it. 🙂 Thanks so much for joining me on the journey.
