Drab Green Bathroom Transformed into a Contemporary Oasis

Drab Green Bathroom Transformed into a Contemporary Oasis

This primary bathroom was in dire need of an update from the original design – green shower walls, green tub, and dated cabinetry and finishes. After connecting with ACo Designer Dani Kohl, the homeowner’s put their faith in her design skills and let her get to work.  

Kohl was determined to create an elegant and welcoming space, a beautiful place that would refresh the homeowners as they woke to get ready and face each new day. With a busy daily routine for their 3 children, she wanted her client to feel she had a special retreat for herself.  

So, instead of just updating the finishes within the bathroom, Kohl changed up the flow of entire space. By adding a wall, they created separation in the large space between the shower and free-standing tub. The new wall became a focal point with dimensional tile in a creamy off-white shade. An interior window within the wall keeps natural light streaming into the room.  

Another detail that takes this design above and beyond is the double-sided access to the shower area. While one side has a glass door, the other is open directly into the shower with a nearby dry area and bench. Add in heated floors to keep this high-ceilinged room toast, and the bathroom has been transformed into a contemporary oasis and true owner’s retreat.  

The transformations didn’t stop with the bathroom; however, the homeowners and Kohl also rejuvenated the all-important mud room and laundry. Rich, wood cabinetry is complimented by patterned ceramic floor tiles, a warm toned backsplash, and bright white countertops for a soothing organic design.
