How to create a fun summer home feel in your 5’ x 8’ bathroom

How to create a summer home feeling in a 5 foot by 8 foot bathroom Columbus Ohio

Wouldn’t it be cool to feel like you’re enjoying a “summer home” every day you step into your bathroom? While most of us love the idea of owning a summer home many things get into the way (kids, college expenses, health care costs etc.). But what if you get a summer home ambiance – even in your standard 5’ x 8’ bathroom you use every day?

This was the vision of a progressive Columbus Ohio couple when they bought a traditional ranch home about 2 years ago. In the short run this home would provide a place for their daughter, future son in law and grandchild to stay until their careers took them elsewhere. In the long run this home would not only be a comfortable place to retire, but also a place to relax and enjoy – just like being at a summer home (even during the cold Central Ohio winters!).

So how did they create a summer home ambiance in their 5’ x 8’ bathroom? Let’s take a look at the key design concepts and products used.

Cottage style bathroom remodel in cleveland ohio

If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom would you prefer to work with a contractor who tells you, “Lady – this is how we’re going to fix your bathroom” or one who asks, “Ma’am – how can we help you make this space fit your personality, style and needs?” Such was the choice facing Catherine Lee of South Euclid Ohio when she decided – for the first time – to contract out a remodeling project (all her previous projects she did on a DIY basis with her husband).

Catherine was looking to not only remodel – but transform – her 1919 main bathroom. This space had a beautiful vintage oversized cast iron tub and her goal was to create an artistically fun and relaxing space with the feel of a seaside cottage (despite being in Northeastern Ohio!).

Learn below how Catherine along with the design (Jeff Merrell) and construction (John Fronek) leaders of the Cleveland Design and Remodeling division of Innovate Building Solutions were able to deliver on her vision at a budget she could afford.
