From Cramped to Classy: A Compact Bathroom Transformation

It’s amazing how much bigger a compact space can feel when a sleek, minimalist design is introduced. Take it from these clients, who were tired of their cramped and dated master bathroom. As you can see in the before photos, the narrow space was cramped with massive cabinets, a clunky built-in tub, and low hanging light fixtures. Luckily, our team of professional designers got to work and created an open-concept, flowing design to solve our client’s cramped bathroom woes.



In this before shot, you can see the toilet room and shower were very dated an felt over crowded in such a small space.

For a more modern, airy feel, we opened up the shower and toilet room by deconstructing the space. The doorframes, door and lowered ceiling were removed, allowing the widened doorways to stretch all the way to the up the ceiling, streamlining the walls for a sleek and stylish feel. The shower door was replaced with a frameless glass door, and large tiles were installed to create the sense of a larger space.




The cabinetry and vanity were also dated, and didn’t provide the minimalist look or the storage space our clients desired.




The dated cultured marble was replaced with a modern granite counter top to accompany the beautiful new shaker style cabinetry. The staggered cabinet front design provides great architectural appeal!




Here is another shot of the vanity and cabinets before the renovation.




A taller, more slender tower cabinet was installed, providing more storage space for the clients once the fur down ceiling was removed. The low hanging lights were also removed, and replaced with can lights to enhance the open-concept design. Crown molding and coordinating paint colors finish the room nicely.




The clunky built-in bathtub had a large cultured tile surround that took up way too much space in this compact bathroom.




The oversized tub and surround were replaced by a simplistic free-standing tub, providing the clean, open look our clients had in mind.


The finished bathroom looks beautifully refreshed, modern, and has more storage space that the clients needed. What a great finish!
