The bathrooms upstairs needed some cosmetic updates to fit our style. I wanted to create a space that would be functional and stylish. I have said it so many times but I will say it again. One of the easiest ways to update a space or give it some character is with lighting. I knew that the builder basic light fixtures just had to go. Here is a look at the master bathroom when we bought the house.
I really wish the previous owners had put light fixtures over each sink. However, there was only one light fixture for a double sink. 🙁 I decided to make the most of it and work with what we had. I knew that Kichler would have something amazing to give it a wow factor. Sure enough, I found the Alton Bath Light. The industrial brass plate and seeded glass were just perfect. I love how it pops against the white shiplap.
To give the master bathroom extra dimension and style we popped off the builder grade mirror. Mr. Whitelane and I decided to install shiplap and hang individual mirrors for each sink. The Alton Bath Light centered between the sinks really makes a statement. This is phase one of the bathroom updates. We plan on replacing the faucets/countertops and painting the vanities in phase two (after the basement is finished). Although, I kind of like the dark vanities for now.
The kid’s bathroom also needed a little lighting love. I will be honest, I had a hard time deciding which bathroom should get this Jasper Bath Light. It is so unique, modern, and retro all at the same time. I ended up deciding it fit best in the kid’s bathroom. You know I love all things brass. So, it is no surprise on the color choice. The tapered bar with etched cased opal globes is striking. The Jasper Bath Light is just what this bathroom needed to pop. Instead of removing the mirror in here, we just added an easy DIY frame.
Both the Jasper and Alton bath lights were perfect in helping to bring each bathroom some style and character. I couldn’t be happier with how these little bathrooms have turned out. They both just needed a little DIY love to remove the builder basic vibe. The bathrooms now feel more like our own. Want to update your bathroom or space the easy way? Add a new light fixture from Kichler. 🙂 Lighting can make all the difference in a room.
