Beach House Guest Bathroom Reveal

beach house guest bathroomOver on Instagram you may have seen the sneak peek I posted of the beach house guest bathroom last week? Well, today I’m excited to blog the full reveal! I love how we transformed what was a dark and dingy space into something that’s colorful and airy. The transformation is really quite something (if I may say so myself!), but don’t take my word for it – see the before and after for yourself in the slider below:

*Use the slider to see the guest bath when we moved in vs. now*
beach house guest bathroomIf you are scratching your head about how we reconfigured the space – I don’t blame you! Last summer I shared this blog post which shows pictures of the guest bathroom before and during renovation, which is helpful to look at so you can see how we physically changed the four walls and layout of the space. Below you can see the downstairs floor plans before and after renovation:
*Use the slider to see how the downstairs was laid out when be bought the house vs. now – the guest bathroom is located bottom centre of the floor plan*
beach house guest bathroomAs you can see in the floor plan the main change we made structurally to the bathroom was to incorporate the space from a closet that was in the adjacent fourth bedroom (which itself became part of the living room). Giving this closet space to the guest bathroom meant that we could have this walk-in shower area. I’m so glad we made this structural change because it gives the bathroom a much more luxurious hotel vibe. Plus, just adding in a few feet made all the difference. We also used the additional space to box out space for the HVAC ducting to run up and down the house. Finally, we reframed the window and moved it over about a foot so that it would be directly over the newly placed toilet. This gave us space to add in a pedestal sink and mirror next to it. In turn, this gave the guest bathroom a lot more open floor space and so it became a more spacious and enjoyable space to spend time in.beach house guest bathroomOK, so now we’ve talked structural changes let’s talk design! We sourced the rain head shower and the faucet from Waterworks. The pedestal sink was from DXV, and was the perfect fit for this small space.beach house guest bathroomWe sourced all of the beautiful handmade tile from Fireclay Tile, who are based out of California. In the guest bathroom we used Ogee Drops in Naples Blue for the walk-in shower area with Mini Star & Cross in White Wash on the floor, and 3×6 subway tile in White Wash on the walls.beach house guest bathroomYou may recognize the lemon wallpaper from the entryway in our NYC apartment? We actually redecorated that space a few months ago and ended up really missing the lemons, so we used the leftover pieces from the first time we used the paper for the guest bathroom at the beach house. The lemon wallpaper was from Serena & Lily but they no longer carry it, sadly. There’s a similar lemon wallpaper paper on Etsy – it’s removable, too! The brass sconce above the mirror was from Schoolhouse Electric, and the recessed vintage-style medicine cabinet mirror is from Pottery Barn. We love how this little guest bathroom came together – it feels so energizing and rejuvenating and happy. Now, we just need it to feel as summary outside as it does inside this bathroom!beach house guest bathroom// Photography and interior design by Will Taylor

    Wow this transformation is incredible! And wow it’s also so on brand with the blue and yellow?? Really loving the lemon print wallpaper. I have a lemon print tee that’s very similar, and I can’t help but think that wearing that shirt and taking a photo with that wallpaper would make such a good Instagram 😛 Honestly, your bathroom hits all the Insta-worthy criteria, and if it were a restaurant, I bet there’d be a ton of people lining up to get shots with the wallpaper and tiles. I really love how bright and fun your bathroom looks. Also the sliders were fun to play around with 🙂 && Amen to the weather -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    Beautiful, Will! Do you mind if I ask where you got the brass supply lines under the sink? We are also using brass fixtures in the bathroom we’re currently remodeling, and can’t find brass plumbing components anywhere for our sink and toilet. (The sink will be wall-mounted, and open underneath, so the supply lines will definitely be visible. Aaargh!)

    Hi Will! Gorgeous bathroom, this is my inspiration for my upcoming bathroom renovation!!
    Quick question: I went to Firestone’s website for the blue tiles and noticed that they are crackled. I’d gotten advice that it was risky to put crackled tile in a shower area as the cracks give space for mold to penetrate. I’m not sure when you re-did your bathroom but have you noticed any challenges with mold? And did you seal the tiles before putting them on? (I heard that reduces mold getting in…)

    Thanks for the info!
