We found this bathroom unattractive and highly impractical with its glass sink, cheap fixtures, and strange tile
The glass sink was so dumbfoundingly impractical in a bathroom that gets, well, a lot of use due to its location
Lo, what's this? Chicago Common brick from the 1880's?! Sweet.
Out came all the shower tile, all the floor tile, and the tub.
I purchased the octagon dot on Craigslist and picked up inexpensive subway tiles for a border.
It hides damaged walls and brings color, pattern, texture, and shine (if you're lucky) to a space. Love it.
I painted the ceiling black and added a crystal and chrome ceiling mount light fixture.
I designed and built some custom cabinets to go where the tub once lived.
The cabinets, exposed brick, tile, crystal fixture, vanity, plus an upcycled wood shelf with painted faux rust
All for under $1000 too! A unique, custom room for thousands less than one might expect.
