One Room Challenge Spring 2020 Week 2

Updated: May 22, 2020

Wow guys, week 2 of the One Room Challenge is officially done and our head is spinning! Like we mentioned in our Week 1 post here we had a little bit of head start going into the challenge because you know CoVid and all. To give you a little recap, we are in the middle of designing our clients master bathroom and closet of her dreams. We've actually already done the demo, and are well into the finishing phase of the project. We cannot wait to show you all the gorgeous details! But first here is the design plan for the two spaces.


Like we mentioned in Week 1, we are moving the toilet to the adjacent wall to make room for the larger vanity with makeup area. By doing this, we now have a vanity that will extend from wall to wall creating a nice size double sink vanity plus makeup area. To expand the closet footprint we will be closing off the existing entrance (where the 48" TV will go) to the closet and creating two new openings that lead to each space. We are also reworking the existing lighting plan and installing new energy efficient LED with dimmers. Oh! and how can we forget we will also be removing that fugly dreaded popcorn ceiling.


For the finishes for the bathroom, we wanted to use a bold color for the vanity and we knew our client loved deep hues of blue. We settled on this gorgeous moody blue from Sherwin Williams called Indigo Batik. The stone top for the vanity is a stunning white quartz with grayish/brown veining to complement the rustic porcelain wood looking floors. For the shower floors, we will be using this blue/gray marble stone that is out of this world. We're just a tad bit obsessed with it! You can see a peek of it in the third photo below. Lastly, to sprinkle in that farmhouse flair we opted for a classic white subway tile for the shower walls in a herringbone pattern.


Ta-da! And just like that we have a plan and vision of what the space will look like. For the vanity, we knew we had to design something that had ample storage. To give our clients just that we designed the vanity with a combination of drawers and two cabinets with doors. We could have brought the vanity to the floor, but we wanted to keep the space from feeling bulky and cluttered so we opted for an open shelf at the bottom.


Let's face it the closet isn't huge so we had to up our game when it came to maximizing what we were working with! To provide enough space for our clients, we designed the closet to have as many two rack shelves as possible. That way our clients are able to hang clothes on the top and bottom. We have also incorporated a few cubby spaces for purses as well as a few drawers for intimates. To keep the space from feeling crowded we are going with bright white closet system.

We hope you guys love the design plan as much as we do! We can't wait to show you all the demo going on next week. It's been a doozy (let's just say we've ran into a few plumbing and electrical issues), but we are ready to bring our A game!
