Our Glengrove + Hamilton project covers a majority of the second floor in our client’s home. If you haven’t done so yet be sure to check out where we started and our plan for the project here. First up on the reveal is the kids bathroom! And honestly, kids bathroom or not, I would be completely ok with getting ready in here daily.
Take a look at where we started.
The overall goal of this space was to give it a complete facelift while providing some much needed functionality for the two kids who use this space on a daily basis. The first major decision was all new tile. We created a cube pattern with these chalk dark RMB tiles. The pattern creates an added layer of texture to the bathroom floor. Knowing we were going to keep the overall palate black, white and gray we wanted to play with the textures to help elevate the space.
From there we paired the floor tile with two different wall tiles starting with these matte black hex tile which create a feature wall that can be seen when you first walk into the space. And knowing you can see the bathroom from the staircase as you walk up from downstairs the feature wall just invites you in.
Since we paired the hex wall tile with an elongated subway tile we need a way to marry the two tiles together. This job wasn’t easy, but I can honestly say it the tile scribe turned out incredible. Yep, that was completely custom and done by hand!
We ran the tile in the shower vertically to give it a modern feel. And knowing each tile was hand made and not going to provide perfect grout lines it just gives additional character to the shower. Inside the shower are two niches that we used the same matte black hex from the wall to pull the space together.
There was no way we were hanging a shower curtain in this space so we had a custom glass shower wall made and installed to keep the water from spraying out of the shower. We designed around this to prevent anyone having to use the shower to get soaking wet, and on the wall with the niches we installed the trim kit to turn the shower or bath on.
Next to the shower we created extra storage! Both kids are swimmers and we were challenged to find a solution that delivered ample space for them to store their towels and swimsuits. Here we installed additional hooks and took what was once a very small linen closet and turned it into a fully functional cabinet with built-in storage for all their swimming needs!
The vanity also delivered much more function that the original that stood there for nearly 50 years. We used two large rectangular mirrors with two hexagonal sconces to work with the tile on the wall while the quartz countertop carries the same black matte metal throughout the space. This really played off the modern look we were going for.
While this bathroom has lots of movement happening in it with the tile elements we used we really wanted to give it some color personality, especially since it is a kids bathroom. We worked with our clients’ kids to select this killer vintage rug. Who said a vintage rug can’t go in a bathroom?!? I love involving children in the design process because it gives them a sense that the space is truly theirs too.
From there we picked out paint. Our vision was for the back wall to stand out and bring the entire space together. We selected Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal for the window trim and it pairs perfectly with the rug and makes my whole heart happy. On the walls and ceiling we used Sherwin Williams Pure White!
And because I love you guys so much, here’s a few more angles of this gorgeous kids bathroom that I think anyone would be happy to have! Oh and don’t worry I got you at the end of the post with some sources!
