We love a good design challenge and the opportunity to collaborate with people in the design industry, so we were thrilled to get a request to remodel Angela Elias', Content Director for Popsugar Living, small bathroom.
Angela and her husband were looking to update their bathroom. Their existing space felt old and the design was completely out-of-date. With busy careers and long commutes, a remodel was not always at the top of their to-do list. But they had a clear vision of what materials they wanted to consider and an even clearer vision of what needed to go…essentially everything!
So in came Decorist to virtually design - and completely transform - the busy couples bathroom. To make this bathroom makeover a success, we enlisted the help of our trusted partners at Lowe's.
With full creative license to transform the small space and a list of the couple’s likes and needs — attractive functional storage, nuetral color palette, sleek lighting, reflective details to brighten the windowless space — Decorist got to work on designing a modern, boho Palm Springs-like bathroom. We sourced all the products from the variety of brands and styles offered at Lowe's. Angela and her husband were absolutely thrilled with the new updated look!

The ‘before and after’ photos speak volumes. The space went from tired and outdated to a more modern, spa like feeling. Storage was amped up and the hardware was replaced with gold tones that add warmth and elevate the design.
Angela loved the organic look of the wood tile (yep, it's tile and much more practical in a bathroom then wood floors) brought to the space. To make the bathroom feel larger, we installed the tile in a herringbone pattern that adds depth and tricks the eye into making the space seem larger. As you can image, the former white tile had been a nuisance to keep clean and did nothing to visually enlarge the room.
Other optical tricks to make the space feel bigger included crisp white walls and seamless white tile, plus a stylized smaller glass shelving unit positioned lower on the wall. Little creative touches like nature photography and charming potted succulents helped to personalize the look and tie in that modern, Palm Springs-like feel.
Many thoughtful design techniques went into the striking transformation. This mini remodel proves that no space is too small to make a big difference. It also reminds us that with Decorist and our virtual design platform, updates and remodels are within reach, no matter what you want to spend.
