West Loop Bathroom Remodel… post #2

Today I wanted to share some of the design elements that are going into this Chicago bathroom remodel I am doing for a client in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. The bathroom uses bathroom tile and finishes that are some of my favorites. If I were to remodel my own condo’s bathroom right now, it would turn out very similar to this modern loft bathroom remodel!

The main bathroom tile that was used for a majority of the floor is from Daltile. We are using large 12″x24″ pieces in a brick pattern on the floor. We are also using the large pieces on two walls in the shower, as well as on the shower floor. This creates a clean, consistent look throughout the entire bathroom. If you are ever working on a bathroom remodeling project and you have a small space, remember that it is best to keep all of your finishes unified. If you chop up your tile work, it will make the space appear smaller.

In the coming weeks, one of LD’s bathroom tile contractors will tile the shower’s back wall with exceptionally beautiful glass mosaic tile. I love the linear quality to this tile and the soothing color palette.

The plumbing fixtures are all Hansgrohe, set in a brushed nickel finish. I love the quality and the design of their fixtures.

The sconces that will flank the custom medicine cabinet are from George Kovacs. I love the vertical lines and the simplicity of these fixtures! We needed something very narrow to work with the design of the medicine cabinet, and these fit the bill perfectly.

The counter top is made from honed Lagos Azul limestone and has a 3″ face. Our counter top installer mitered the top portion of the limestone (at the edges) to give the appearance of a thicker stone. This is a great bathroom remodeling tip for those involved in their own remodeling projects!

    Your idea of transformation and tiles are nice..especially your suggestion in case of a small space bathroom to be remodeled..all the finishes must be unified. Tiles placement arrangement should be in such a manner so that it does not look like more smaller.
