A Bathroom is Reborn.

I’ve got the teeny tiniest bathroom and have been trying to brainstorm on how to remodel it to add more space. So when interior stylist and beloved blogger Kirsten Grove of Simply Grove sent me photos of her recent remodel project I was inspired! The space was once a bedroom, and her client needed a master bath so they split the bedroom in half to create the bathroom. Which is essentially what I need to do — expand my bathroom into the back bedroom and turn the other half of what’s left of the bedroom into a walk-in closet for my master bedroom (which has a horrid and very wonky closet I can’t stand).

The faucet, tub, sink, toilet, shower are all from Kohler. The lovely Isaac Pendant lamp is from Schoolhouse Electric. The vanity is a vintage mid-century modern credenza that was cleverly restored with marble countertops, and the round KOLJA mirror is from IKEA. Kirsten did the floors in a marble herringbone style and walls are square white tiles. It all looks so modern and fresh — love it!

  1. Thanks for sharing this great post about renovating a small bathroom into a master bath! My husband and I just moved into a new house, and the bathroom is really small, but our room is massive. We’ll definitely look into using some of that space to expand our restroom and make it more usable. Thanks for the great post!

  2. I love the idea of using a credenza as a vanity…my question is, how do you get the right depth? Most credenzas are about 18.5 inches. Do you just pull it off the wall some?

    • Hi Jill,

      I’ve never built one, but I believe it’s like any vanity you might use and you would cut spacing out of the back of the credenza to accommodate the plumbing, and then of course a hole up top for the sink and faucets. I hope that helps!
