If you are looking for inspiration for a Transitional bathroom remodel in San Diego, here is a great sample of some work we completed in the Fall of 2016. Transitional bathrooms combine the best of two worlds design-wise. As shown in this transitional bathroom, there are features of contemporary (otherwise known as “modern”) design as well as some more traditional design aspects.
This home, built in 1989, originally featured a soaker tub with a separated shower. The homeowners wanted to keep both these features but lose the tile, which was very popular in the 80’s. To keep in line with the modern feel of the bathroom, we installed a frameless shower door for the shower. Our clients kept safety and comfort in mind when they selected a thermostatic hand held shower by Hansgrohe and installed a grab bar next to the shower seat.
Our clients were also looking to make some cabinetry changes in their home. They no longer felt it was necessary to have a “make-up” space and wanted to add more storage space in the bathroom. This is a common request in San Diego bathroom remodels, actually. To create more space for them, we customized the bathroom by adding stacked cabinets on the countertop. This change allowed us to add dual mirrors, which is also a popular modern bathroom feature. This bathroom features Starmark Cabinetry’s Cosmopolitan doors in a white (“Dove”) finish.
You are not going to find tile countertops in a modern or transitional bathroom so we took those out as well. The countertops were replaced with a sleek-looking quartz. We complimented the countertops with the installation of a Mirabelle undermount lavatory. The installation of the shutters completed this classic look.
As you can see in the above “before and after” of the recently completed master bathroom, we had a narrow space to work with. The clean lines and comfortable style used in this space makes this bathroom much more inviting and open-feeling.
Transitional Bathroom Remodel Trends
Many bathroom remodels are created in a transitional design. Preparing a bath space that is both traditional and contemporary is easier than you may think. Mid-century modern cabinetry is a great way to start your design. Avoid overly bold colors. Do not use over-stimulating ornamentation. When designing your space think calm, classic, and simple.
Transitional spaces, such as the bathroom space above, commonly use tan, beige, white, or light grey colors. These colors create a calming atmosphere but we encourage clients to add a pop of color when accessorizing the space.
