If you saw our twins' bathroom reveal a few months ago, this is another secondary bath remodel that was done in tandem, with variations of similar materials (to keep the peace with comparisons...parents of multiple kids will understand)! Scroll through for a seriously scary before photo, reveal photos of the bathroom, and a good deal of shoppable links so you can achieve the same look!

I told you it would be a good one. As with our other secondary bath update, our design plan began by asking the question - what changes would make the biggest difference for the budget we had in mind but still remain neutral enough for resale value later on. Let's break down what we changed in the space...
I knew I wanted to keep the cabinetry white but wanted to change the look from uber traditional to something more transitional. We started by updating the cabinet fronts with a simple Shaker style. Up above, we wanted something different for the countertop in this en suite as opposed to the marble looking quartz in the shared twin bathroom. We selected a warm gray quartz countertop that reminded me of concrete. I love the contrast it offers between the white cabinets and soft green-gray paint color on the walls.
For the floors, we traded in the old orange-beige square tiles for a fun geometric hex tile with linen like texture - masculine and unfussy, but interesting for sure!
I debated for a hot minute about the tassels on this neutral gray striped shower curtain, but they don't bother me anymore - I like the added interest at the bottom.
We love to mix metals around here, so we stuck with stainless steel fixtures for both shower and sink paired with dark cabinet hardware. #mixedmetalsforthewin I love the black matte finish on these pulls and knobs - they really update the cabinets and again add contrast plus serve to set this ensuite bathroom apart from the shared twin bathroom.
