Guest Bathroom Renovation
This was a complete gut job for the main level bathroom of a single family home. And full disclosure, this was one of my very very first renovations!
The client wanted a simple powder room or bathroom for guests to use on the main floor:
With all the plumbing already in place, we didn’t need to secure any permits from the city (except for the big ol dump truck of course) & were able to secure space for a full bathroom with standing shower, versus just having a guest powder room.

The previous owners never used the bathroom so it became an abandoned corner adjacent to the kitchen on the main floor -- talk about PRIME real estate! This was a no brainer, because now, rather than having guests marching up & down the stairs to use his main bath, he could easily point them here.
After gutting what was left of the bathroom, it was time to select paint, tiles, flooring, lighting, and fixtures. Knowing that this was simply to be used by the occassional guest (or when he would be too lazy to go upstairs) we wanted to go with a very clean & neutral design, that would also be easy to corrdinate with the surrounding, more traditional decor of the kitchen.
The client was very hands on which made choosing finishes fun & easy. After a few trips to local retailers, we pulled together a quick & easy renovation. A once dilapidated shell of a bathroom was not a fully functional & welcoming 3 piece guest bathroom.
