This 112-year-old home in Lawrenceville, NJ was in great condition for its age when our client purchased it, but she wanted to implement some changes to really make the space her own—and one of the first projects on her list was a bathroom renovation.

Re-Doing an Old Remodel

The previous homeowners had done some awkward remodeling in the space that definitely needed to be changed. Apart from the cosmetic updates (new tile, new cabinets, built-in shower seating and more), there were also issues behind the walls that needed correction. 

Our to-do list included:

·       Gutting the space

·       Adding a bench seat to the shower

·       Putting in new drywall

·       Replacing the electrical components, including a new exhaust fan

·       Installing new: shower tile, bathtub, cabinets, accessories, and flooring

·       Finishing off the space with fresh paint and trim

Our lead designer, Bernadette, worked with the client to create a traditional yet modern look that fit the architecture of the house perfectly. Together, they chose a clean 4×10-inch white subway tile for the shower, a gorgeous quartz countertop and matching bench seat, faucets and a shower valve by Hansgrohe, and a one-piece toilet by Toto. The 24×24-inch floor tiles help the bathroom feel even bigger. 

Adding the Final Touches

The client also asked that our team update a closet in the primary bedroom and remodel a powder room as well.

Bernadette and the client had a lot of fun with the powder room renovation. Although it’s a small space, we were able to make a big statement with a beautiful black-and-white patterned floor tile and a sleek, compact sink.

In the end, the client was happy with the finished results!
