Updating an older darker house

That’s one thing most everyone can agree on when evaluating their current bathroom.

And if the home is older, there likely is very little elbow room in the ‘ole water closet.

The added accessories, such as the perfume bottles, flowers and tufted bench, give the space a romantic feel.

Design by Lori Morris The curved cabinets, tub deck and glass block walls lend a soft feng shui feel to this room.

“The typical shower in the typical house built 20 years ago was probably a 3x3 foot or 3x3.5 foot size, and it’s just not large enough,” says Ken Perrin, president, Artistic Renovations, Cleveland, Ohio. They say, ‘We’ve put up with this for 15 years.’” Chances are, how you are using that bathroom now and the way you’d like to use it after the remodeling is done are different.

This beautiful space designed by Vincente Wolf achieves an underwater atmosphere with seafoam green glass walls.By combining vintage touches with modern elements, the designer created a unique space that is contemporary yet timeless.This sumptuous bathroom has a center panel tub, onyx inlays, carved moldings, a fireplace and delicately embroidered drapes.The tub is centered in the French door entry and has a view to the Juliet balcony.The tub sits below a large window that overlooks the backyard and is surrounded with beautiful tiles in soothing shades of tan.
