Creating an Elegant Master Bath

I have noticed quite an increase in clients returning or coming to me for help with a Master Bathroom Remodel.  The story is always the same, their bathroom was arranged poorly with a lot of wasted space, and looks like it is coming out of the 1980's, which is typically when the house was built.  Dark finishes make these smaller rooms drab and uninviting.  The home owners want to create a bright and elegant space, so here is some inspiration for that next master bath remodel.

The above Moodboard was created for a some clients of mine, and their highly outdated master bathroom.  The husband wanted something traditional, and the wife wanted something much more contemporary.  I presented them with this transitional design as an inspiration, and they are slowly transforming their bathroom to this concept.  They are keeping the original cabinetry, however refinishing it to a white painted finish, and going with the vessel style sinks.  The project is projected to be done by the end of 2012.

The above Moodboard was created for a client of mine, that wanted to brighten up their dark space, but didn't want to go too light.  Their existing bathroom had dark blue tiles over the majority of the surfaces, from floor to ceiling.  It was a cave.  In order to brighten up the space, I chose lighter finishes, but not too light.  The onyx counter top and the darker cherry cabinets create a great contrast with the clients existing travertine tile flooring.  Their project is also being done slowly as budget allows, and is scheduled to be completed by the holiday season of this year.
