  Couple show off their VERY impressive modern bathroom renovation Amelia and Dean from Christchurch, New Zealand, transformed their space into a serene retreat for $12,000 - and the result was well worth the hard work. The couple began their transformation with a fresh coat of paint onto the walls and added new ceiling lights to instantly modernise the room.

For a striking before and after bathroom transformation, designer Bari Ackerman knew she wanted to execute "a modern take on Art Deco design." The primary bathroom in Ackerman's family home in Scottsdale, Arizona, the space—which hadn't been renovated since the house was built in 1994—was in desperate need of an update. "Its design was what I’d call ’90s desert Tuscan," the designer explains. "It had a built-in jetted tub with heavy beige tile and a brown steam shower that didn’t work. Not only was it dark and dated, but it also appeared the shower had been installed incorrectly, so that absolutely needed to be remedied."

Subsequently, Ackerman decided to keep the room open, constructing a zero entry shower and removing partial walls that surrounded the vanity. To start off the renovation project, the designer began by revamping the tile arches above the sinks. "Mosaic cut hexagon tile forms the arches," explains Ackerman, "and the shape is repeated with the mirrors in the room and the shower glass. The shape is repeated in the shower tile pattern, as well as in the light fixtures, the designer notes. "To contrast the curved lines," she designed a linear vanity with vertical fluting made from hickory, which she juxtaposed with horizontal tiles in the bathtub.

Ackerman chose a pink-and-orange palette, making sure to match the vanity tiles to the shower tiles by incorporating a vibrant roman shade. "I went with one tile for the entire floor, for consistency, and painted the ceiling pink for the same reason," the designer reveals.
