His & Hers: Small Bathrooms, BIG Updates!



Our recent clients in Fort Worth, TX, came to us in need of assistance updating their master bathrooms. Unlike most houses, there was not one large master bathroom; instead, it was two small bathrooms, separated by the master bedroom. While this layout may not be ideal for everyone, our clients liked the idea of having their own separate spaces, in which case, the smaller sized bathrooms were perfect for! Both rooms, however, were in desperate need of some refreshing. Our clients had some initial ideas and colors picked out but wanted to discuss the best options for utilizing the small areas. Our designers drew up the floor plans and 3D renderings to better communicate the changes.








Although the layout of the rooms was not changing, essentially everything in the original bathroom was pulled and replaced. This meant new tile, countertops, tile, paint, lighting, and flooring.






In “Her” bathroom, the most impactful change is the color of the walls. The tan wallpaper and neutral tile created a Tuscan-style color scheme, which made the room feel significantly darker and smaller. The wallpaper was removed and a fresh white and gray palette was introduced. A new custom vanity with shaker cabinet doors and a polished quartz countertop replaced the original vanity. A dark grey hexagon pattern tile was used for the flooring to create some contrast and visual interest.


The clients also opted to include heated floors as an upgraded feature. This is a heated element installed below the tile by our hard surfaces and electrical trade partners. It is hard-wired and operated with a digital touch screen. Additional upgraded features can include remote operation, scheduling, and even an app!






The large grab bar, tile, wallpaper, and original bathtub were removed and replaced with a new tub and modern subway tile extending up to the ceiling.







The bench top at the end of the new tub matches the vanity countertop material to tie the design together and provide a beautiful, functional seat.







The decorative mirror, satin nickel faucet, and decorative accents have taken this bathroom from dark and dated to bright and welcoming!




“His” bathroom had a similar starting aesthetic to “Her” bath. It was very dark and poorly lit and felt extremely crowded with a large corner shower.





Addressing the walls and flooring was the first update – which included replacing those dated features with the same paint and tile chosen for “Her” bathroom. We love the cohesive consistency in the design between the two rooms!




Replacing the bulky corner shower with a frameless glass option was the most impactful change. This allowed for the large shower to remain in place while also making the room feel larger.







The light-colored subway tile and blue penny tile flooring compliment the colors used in the rest of the house.






“His” finished bathroom looks like a completely different space! It’s clean, bright, and flows well with the rest of the house. Most importantly, both of our clients love their individually updated bathrooms!
