How do you manage to pull off a hall bathroom remodel that feels fun enough for the kids who will be the primary users, but not so kid-centric that your guests will feel like they’ve somehow entered an alternative Chuck E. Cheese universe? And how do you future-proof a bathroom remodel occurring near the end of the gray-everywhere trend arc when gray tile seems like the only thing on the market?
The way we’ve addressed these concerns in this particular bathroom remodel is by using playful shapes in decorative accent tile and combining that with an ambiguously gray field tile on the walls that leans both gray and beige, depending on what you put around it. The new greige. Grounding the floor with a darker charcoal tile gives us some good visual contrast, and rounds out our color palette.
The large penny round tiles that look like white and gray marble are actually made of recycled glass. Circles in general feel somewhat playful, but the oversized nature of these round tiles amps up the fun.
Matte black plumbing fixtures in simple shapes and contours really modernize this bathroom.
Opposite the bathtub and shower, a white lacquer floating double vanity makes it easy for kiddos Olive and Atlas to share this bathroom.
White wood frames the mirror over the vanity.
White quartz countertops paired with white rectangular undermount sinks keeps things light and fresh.
A bit of brass on the mid-century-inspired vanity light glams up the otherwise matte black fixture.
Cannot get enough of the tile backsplash that wraps around the walls and behind the double vanity!
Single handle bathroom sink faucets in matte black simplify things for little hands.
Those big dots make you smile, no? Hard to believe they’re not real Carrara marble!
The charcoal floor tiles feature a woven fabric-like look and texture that play up a mid-century modern aesthetic.
Adorning the walls are both brass starbursts…
…and fun twig balls that bring a natural element into the bathroom.
Towels are a great way to update as trends change. Right now, blush is the thing. Tomorrow, who knows?
The peachy towels make the wall tile skew toward the beige side of greige.
