AN AURORA GUEST BATHROOM COMPLETES A GREAT NEW LOOK
Recently, we featured a cozy cabin-style Master Bath remodel for this Aurora First Responder’s home. Here, we’re showcasing the other, complementary project: their new Guest Bathroom! This hallway bath didn’t need a change in the fixture placement or floorplan, but it was ready for an update.
Initially, the homeowners were planning to match both of the new bathrooms, but after seeing the possibilities of working with the various tile colors, they decided to change it up a bit. The great thing about the porcelain tile used for their renovation is that it’s equally great for either wall or floor use. You’ll see how they used the same colors in different locations, with wonderful results.
The fixtures were completely upgraded, with all Kohler products. Rather than choosing standard white, the couple selected a fresh Almond shade that warms up the room and blends beautifully with the soft browns in the bathroom. Among the new additions were the Caxton sink, Highline Comfort Height toilet, and bathtub.
Shower walls were completely refreshed with Milestone 12” x 24” porcelain tiles in their Stonefire Rust color and pattern. This tile has a rustic look that resembles natural stone. This selection was also used as the floor tile in the homeowner’s Master bath – but here it creates a harmonious blend with the shower fixtures.
The all-new plumbing fixtures are also by Kohler, in their distinctive Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. The mellow look of this particular metal meshes with the earth tones used throughout both bathroom remodels, adding a touch of cool elegance.
Cabinets are by Bertch, using their Osage door style. The owners chose Berth’s Oak Wood, Harvest Semi-Gloss finish, and also added a matching framed mirror over the vanity and a new wall cabinet over the toilet. The vanity top is a rich granite: Coffee Brown – this dark color has a mix of lighter browns, greys, and streaks of black that magically pull out all of the shades of the tile and fixtures!
Last, the floor features Place porcelain tile in Rust. Another rustic choice that resembles flagstone, it has a subtle interplay of colors that works well in this hallway bath. It’s a huge change from the previous white floors! This color was also used in the Master bathroom on the shower walls.
It’s easy to see how the homeowners fell in love with these tile and color choices! As we talked about recently, porcelain tile is a superb choice for any room in your home. It’s incredibly versatile and tough – allowing you to use a favorite pattern – or patterns! – in multiple spots you’re remodeling – from kitchens to sunrooms!
