Have you ever wondered whether those impressive before-and-after pictures you see from home remodelers reflect their work?

At AIR Kitchen and Bath, we walk the talk. In this blog, we’re thrilled to share one of our recent success stories with you.

In this bathroom remodeling project, our client desired a modern master bathroom with a hint of vintage elegance, anchored by a captivating bathtub. She wanted to infuse a farmhouse vibe, with tinges of charming blue.

Like every time, this was an exciting opportunity for us to help a client realize her dream space. But this one seemed more challenging, as we had to combine the best of both worlds. 

And, boy, we did well. To top it all off, we accomplished this stunning bathroom transformation in just 4 weeks!

Before the Makeover: Revealing the Bathroom's Initial State

As with every project, we visited the client’s home to check her former bathroom.

With a single glance, it was evident that the bathroom fell short of its full potential. The visual appeal left much to be desired, and the noticeable functional shortcomings were hard to overlook.

In this section, we will delve into the specifics, painting a picture of the bathroom’s former state.

Please Note: The sole purpose of this content is to showcase the areas for improvement. It is not meant to defame or criticize the original decor. Rather it provides a basis for comparison so the reader can appreciate the unfolded transformation.

Poor Artificial Lighting

Improper artificial lighting left the space devoid of warmth. It gave a dull and unwelcoming experience for anyone using the bathroom.

Awkward Layout

The bathroom’s layout revealed a glaring shortcoming — a haphazard arrangement of elements and poorly placed fixtures. This made the space feel cramped and cluttered. It disrupted the space’s visual appeal and usability.

Outdated Materials

The choice of materials in the bathroom reflected a dated aesthetic. 

The floor tiles, shower fixtures, shower pan tile, and back shower wall tile lacked a sense of luxury and comfort. Some tiles exhibited signs of wear, further detracting from the overall visual appeal. 

The lack of visual cohesion among these materials diminished the space’s impact.

Here are some photos that we took before beginning with the bathroom remodeling.
