Beyond the Master Bath: A Traditional Look for a Guest and Jack & Jill Bathroom Remodel

contributed by:


Jack & Jill Bathroom with Natural Lighting and Dual Sinks

When children move out of the home, many couples take advantage of having an open house to take on long-overdue home renovations. We had a Thousand Oaks couple in this exact situation approach us at Westside Remodeling wanting a complete remodel for their guest bathroom and Jack and Jill bathroom.

Guest Bathroom with Neutral Colors and Traditional Style

The homeowners had a specific vision for what they wanted in these two spaces: a tasteful traditional design with mostly neutral colors and scrupulous attention to every small detail. From the grout color, to the tile choice, and all the way to the plumbing fixtures, they knew what they wanted and how they wanted it to fit into the space.

Both bathrooms have white subway tiles on the shower walls and clear glass doors to make the showers look more spacious and inviting. Traditional style brushed nickel plumbing fixtures enhance the showers and sinks in both rooms. The homeowners wanted a consistent neutral color scheme in both spaces, with white walls, white cabinetry, and beige tile for the flooring.

Brushed Nickel Fixtures and White Subway Tiles in Both Showers

In the guest bathroom, we added a window in the shower at the homeowners’ request. To add some color and style, glass mosaic tile brightens up the shower flooring and adds a touch of style on the recessed shower shelf. A decorative shower drain with a traditional look completes this shower space and links the traditional style of the rest of the bathroom with the shower.

In the Jack and Jill bathroom, the natural lighting flowing in through the windows makes for a more pleasant atmosphere. Most of the fixtures and elements are consistent with the master bathroom, but the stylish backsplash behind the sink adds a charming look that complements the two wall-hung mirrors.

This remodel brought some life to these bathroom spaces and the timing of this remodel fit easily into the homeowners’ schedule.

How do I update my kitchen and master bath?

Both have changed dramatically in design. If your budget permits, a full remodel is a good investment.

These days, people gather in the kitchen to socialize and cook together.

Change the cabinetry to update the look and function of your kitchen. It will add more efficient storage options. Kitchens now include islands and desks with a charging station for cell phones and electronic gear.

If a full kitchen remodel is not in the budget, give it a facelift! Try a new cabinet finish, new hardware, and new appliances. You’ll love the look and the energy cost savings too.

Updating the master bathroom is money well spent. Enlarge the shower, raise the counter height, increase the lighting, change the toilet and sinks and add a make-up mirror. Having a serene retreat for relaxation will boost your spirits. Designers are specifying materials that are easier to maintain, yet beautiful.

The best way is to schedule a consultation with a professional interior designer to work out a solution that fits your budget and needs. Working with a designer takes the guesswork out of a project, minimizes stress and avoids costly mistakes. They can work on an hourly basis, or establish a design fee based on the scope of the work to be done.
