Don’t ask me how it happened; it just did. We ended up with not one, not two, but THREE spaces in this year’s DPVA Designer Show House.
Today I’ll show you the before and after of the hall bath. We worked on this space in conjunction with Amanda Cook of Mees Distributors.I am a big lover or vintage and original features in a house, but unfortunately, not much could be saved from this bath. The homeowners requested we replace the sinks and the tile was in bad shape. We did find a great company to resurface the bathtub- Baker Refinishing, but other than that we pretty much gutted it. And here is the after in all her glory! The star of the show is the floor which is a StonePeak porcelain tile. The tiles are actually 12×24 believe it or not. Our tile installer did a magnificent job not only creating the illusion of smaller tiles, but working with the incredibly crooked walls. We used an oversized subway tile on the walls for a little more modern look, but it still fits in with the period and style of the house.
We did salvage the original medicine cabinet. The plumbing fixtures were graciously donated by American Standard and WinWholesale of Dayton.
The composite shutters are a perfect solution for a bathroom window. The top and bottom louvers operate independently, providing privacy and still allowing light into the room. We were able to specify a 3-1/2″ louver size since the original windows are nice and deep. Thanks to Lafayette Venetian Blinds for helping us out on those.
I think the space ended up being a show stopper! Don’t miss your last chance to see this room as well as many other designer’s work. If you’re in the Dayton/Cinci/Columbus area, the house is open through tomorrow, May 17th. For more information visit the DPVA website.
