2006 Best Bath Remodel Under $50,000

This typical 6 1/2 X 5' bathroom in an urban 1929 bungalow was in great need of a facelift as well as general repairs. The homeowners wanted to increase the functionality of the room and find a way for it to feel larger than it actually was. The trick was to do this without the ability to add square footage. They began with the shower tile, creating a recess in one end to hold soap and shampoo. They then moved around the shower creating a visual "cubby" motif. The cubbies provide visual interest, a sense of recessive space, a place to store odd items as well as decor. The cubbies vary in size and placement, keeping rhythm and avoiding monotony. The pedestal sink keeps the floor looking spacious and a tiled cubby directly above it offers al functional alternative to counter space. A hidden cubby behind the bathroom door offers a 2' deep recess to hold all of the bathroom supplies. The colors add to the overall experience and moves the eye around the room creating the feeling of a larger space.
