A Bathroom Renovation Out of The Blue

We’ve highlighted a lot of projects lately that show how an array of neutrals can have a big impact in a small space. And as much as we’ve loved working with clients to bring their visions of blacks, whites, coppers, and weathered wood tones to life, sometimes a bathroom with the focus on just one gorgeous color just comes out of the blue.


That’s the case with this bathroom renovation we recently completed in Montgomery, Ohio. The homeowners were looking for a total floor-to-ceiling upgrade in their hall bathroom. We were thrilled to take on this project that showcases the fact that builders can also be artists.



We love it when a special family tradition can lead to the design of a new family space. In this case, Michigan’s Lake Charlevoix inspired a beautiful palette of blues, that when paired with crisp, white tile, and American Standard toilet and undermount sink, was really able to shine. No need for Calgon to take you away. These serene blues give this bath space a relaxed, clean vibe—dare we say, an instant vacation! We love how the family’s vacation spot gets a place in this room. 



You might not realize that laying tile is truly an artform. And for a project like this, The English Contractor team loves to get creative. This shower, with Soho White subway tile walls and white Penny Rounds, all provided by Hamilton Parker, was turned into a work of art through the sea blue tile accent. This accent tile, Luce Fin in Sani Silk from Lunada Bay, takes this new shower from basic to brilliant. The glass tile adds a special shimmer and shine to the white subway tile. This accent was cut and placed with exact precision, adding an extra special detail to this hall bathroom. The shower is enclosed with a frameless glass door, provided by GlassWerkes


Brushed nickel bath accessories were a must to continue the calm atmosphere. The sink faucet and shower system fixtures are courtesy of the Lahara Collection from Delta. 


 As much as we love to complete any space with custom cabinetry, we’re equally as happy to work with existing pieces from our clients. In this space, the vanity and counter were already in the space and got a little upgrade with the new Delta faucet. 



The natural light is really able to shine in this space, thanks to the new window from Marvin Windows and Marsh Building Products, also in Montgomery.
