This bathroom was in drastic need of a face-lift! The home was built in the late ’80s and the fixtures, wallpaper and design details were definitely showing their age. While the layout of the bathroom worked well, Fluff Interior Design of Omaha, Neb., knew a cosmetic remodel would go a long way toward adding value and beauty to this home.

Hayneedle.com was absolutely the perfect design partner for this project. It was great to be able to find every single thing we needed to update the three-quarter bath without jumping around from site to site. Every item we ordered arrived on time, well packaged and in perfect condition, which, if you shop online much, you know is not always the case.
In order to both update the space and make it more functional, our first design decision was to get rid of the grey, space-agey looking pedestal sink and gray toilet and to replace them with crisp white fixtures.
We chose a clean-lined, double-door vanity that provides style, function, and, most of all, storage. We then topped the cabinet with a thick slab of Carrara marble with a built-in sloped trough sink that is to die for. We chose the 36-inch round Sunburst Wave Bassett mirror to complete the vanity area, and we couldn’t be happier with this choice…it’s an absolute showstopper.
To add a little more storage to the bathroom, we installed floating white shelves above the toilet. This allows us to store fresh white guest towels within easy reach, plus gives us another opportunity to display a few items that add style and personality to the room.
To continue the color story that is being told in the adjoining room, we painted the bathroom walls in Dover Gray by Sherwin Williams (SW7017) and contrasted with Creamy trim (SW7012). We also purchased the vibrant and cheerful set of floral art from Hayneedle. This continues the use of yellow we started in the attached space and creates a sense of flow between the rooms.
The style, function, and personality we added to this space were exactly what the homeowner wanted.
Show a little leg! Choosing a vanity with legs will create an illusion of space if you’re working in a smaller area.
