KMD San Francisco Victorian Bathroom Remodel – Before & After

I’m excited to share some before and after photos for one of my favorite projects.  My clients’ purchased a charming circa 1900 Victorian in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights.  The home has a great layout and fantastic period details but the bathrooms were positively stuck in the 80’s!

We embarked to create a new master suite of their dreams.  Here are some before shots of the rooms in question…

Purple Bathroom

Before – Large Bath.  This was the “shared” bathroom with interesting purple tile and built in planter box…say what?  (This photo was courtesy of the real estate listing.)

The bathroom of my clients’ dreams would have to have a free-standing bathtub AND separate shower with shower system, radiant heat, and Toto toilet with all the bells and whistles.  It would harken the past with black and white flooring yet provide all of the most modern creature comforts.

To accommodate the “wish list” more space was needed.  Working with a wonderful architect three rooms were reconfigured to deliver an efficient master suite.

The larger bathroom sat between a laundry room and smaller bathroom ( that was considered the “master bath”).  There was a bonus room that was added on at some point that was next door to the laundry room.

Here is the laundry room:

With careful planning, we plotted to make the bonus room the master bedroom and connect it to what was the laundry room and larger bathroom.  The laundry room would become a fabulous closet and part of the master bathroom.  A little space from the smaller bathroom shower would be carved out to make a larger master bathroom shower…

After – the new and gorgeous master bathroom suite.  This view is looking from the fabulous built-in closet…

Because the smaller bathroom had some space taken for it, it had to also be redone.  The clients wanted it to go with the overall concept of the master bathroom remodel while providing a good overall value.

After – A classic black and white bathroom with whimsical Fornasetti wallpaper.  Fornasetti Shower nternet

These amazing clients have a fabulous sense of humor.  The lady of the house came in knowing that the design would center around this fun Fornasetti wallpaper.  The finishes were selected with care to punctuate this awesome graphic pattern.

So what do you think?  The goal was to transform outdated and inefficient bathrooms to a modern-day dream inspired by the original 1900’s Victorian architecture.  Did we succeed?
