Vintage Pink Bathroom Gets a Classic Makeover

Kowalske Kitchen & Bath served as the design build remodeling company to update this Wauwatosa bathroom. The cape cod home is in the Lowell Damon Woods neighborhood near the Tosa Village.

The Original Space
Pink tile covered the walls and ceiling of this 1928 Wauwatosa bathroom. The homeowners found the space charming, but the bath was showing its age. The floor tile was starting to crack and break. This was their main family bathroom and it was not functioning well for a family of four. They needed two sinks, more storage, counter space and better lighting.

Wauwatosa Bathroom Remodel: From Pink to Bright and Classic

Design Changes
To make room for a double vanity, we stole space from a hallway linen closet and adjacent bedroom closet. For more storage, we added a recessed wall niche with wood shelves. The bulky radiator was removed and replaced with radiant in-floor heat. Overhead vanity lights and recessed cans brighten the space. We added two shower niches for storing bottles and soap.

Design Style
The homeowners wanted to honor the historic nature of their Wauwatosa home. For a classic design, we used white subway tile on the walls and a vintage octagon and dot floor tile. Wood-look laminate counters complement the soft gray vanity and match the floating shelves. Champagne bronze finishes and moody blue walls (SW 7624) add drama to the space.
