Classic Elegant Powder Room – Chicago’s West Bucktown


The Setup

Before the remodel, you had to walk to the corner of this powder room just to get out of the way so that you could close the door. Updating the toilet location, as well as everything else, made this a completely different powder room.  

Design objectives:

  • Rework layout to improve spatial functionality
  • Add stone tile on walls and floor
  • Add a fitting vanity, literally

The Remodel

“The fixtures, the finishes and the hardwood floor mixed with the textured wall that existed before…  it just didn’t have an inviting modern feel to it,” one of the homeowners told us. “We just wanted something more modern and streamlined,” the other homeowner added.

Design challenges:

  • Existing toilet location
  • Narrow wall for depth of vanity meant we needed an outside-the-box solution.
  • Add some elegance to a bland space

Design solutions:

  • Re-plumb toilet
  • Color palette blending quartz tones with complementary contrasting pop of color
  • Design bespoke shallow vanity to fit the space

The Renewed Space

What at first seemed like a limited construction process ended up being a fun exercise in interior design. The powder room is now a lovely, more functional space for the family and their guests.

We also helped the family reimagine their basement.
