Contemporary Remodel "AFTER"

Residential Projects - Master Bath

Designer's Notes


Contemporary remodel of guest bath


The original guest bath in a Pasadena house built in 1946 needed a remodel to make it more welcoming to family and guests. The original tub, pedestal sink and floor tiles were removed.


After discussing several design concepts, we agreed that the new look should be more contemporary with a focus on new storage, better lighting and a shower without a tub.


As you enter the room, a floating vanity sets the stage for a contemporary ambiance. The rich wood tone adds warmth to the cool gray environment while adding storage. The gray quartz countertop and rectangular white sink continues the sleek look. This is accentuated by a modern oval mirror with an LED light.


For the new shower area, a gray and white porcelain wall tile and a medium gray porcelain floor tile was selected. Both are a larger format size. The floor tile in the shower would continue across the bathroom floor. The frameless shower enclosure provides water protection while not interrupting the view of the lovely tiles. Rohl plumbing fixtures and a linear drain add a bit of sparkle to the shower. An LED light strip provides additional lighting in the shower adding to the up-to-date look.


Recessed LED lights were installed in the sloped ceiling. The original windows were dressed with new gray fabric sun-shades.


The neutral palette can be accented with different colors as the seasons change. The simplicity of the design provides a welcoming feeling for guests and family.
