Big Changes to a Bathroom in Bettendorf, IA

mirror inserts for cabinet doorsWe recently featured a kitchen here on the blog and over on Houzz and boy did it get popular fast! A small hint was made that the bathroom just off of the kitchen was also remodeled at the same time by Village Home Stores. While photographing the kitchen, I kept hearing giggles coming from the bathroom. Two of the little girls were doing their hair and having a grand old time doing so. As they ran in and out it was hard not to notice the amazing wallpaper within the space. Once I was in the room this paper really made a statement!

Let it be known that I have never been more challenged in photographing a bathroom and avoiding my reflection in the mirrors. This bathroom has a lot of mirrored glass. This might make for hard photos to get but it truly does make the space seem huge! With mirrors one two main walls, the space almost doubles when you are inside.

installing vanity light through mirrorThe lighting in this space adds style without distracting from the wallpaper that steals the show. A drum-shaped shade on the vanity 3-light fixture and a semi-flush mount fixture near the armoire area allow plenty of light and complement each other perfectly.

With the new mirror spanning the entire wall, mounting the fixture through the mirror just above the sink anchors the sink space and helps designate a “vanity” area of the wall.  Keeping the mirror one long unit above and changing depths but not heights below keep the room from crowding up.

While the room may have been cramped with reflections for my photos, the new design uses the unique room layout  to its fullest.  Beadboard panels installed to the walls and trim keep the room bright. Birch Pearl painted cabinets create  a classic look and the wallpaper gives a personal style touch. The  wallpaper color photographs like a dark brown but it is a bit lighter in person. Just a few steps darker than the neutral taupes and warm grays in the kitchen, this bold pattern paper made the bath magazine perfect!
