Bath Remodel: Battleships and Lipgloss

A Minnetonka family asked us to transform their dark, narrow children’s bath by introducing more light, improving function and selecting finishes that would simultaneously please their five-year-old son (loves Legos, Star Wars and battleships) and their 13-year-old daughter (loves pink, her iPod and primping). A cheerful finish palette was selected to brighten while remaining gender neutral. The $20/sq. ft. colorful glass mosaic tile was close enough to the $95/sq. ft. tile our clients “loved” – meeting both budget and dual gender needs while giving the room its playful character. Polished chrome hardware lends a touch of sophistication. The retro pendant was introduced to compliment other fixtures in the home. A dual flush toilet from Toto was recommended to help conserve water in what is surely the most used bath in the house! Featured in Kitchen & Bath Makeovers magazine.
