A bathroom remodel retrospective: notable Portland projects

Portland bathroom remodels present opportunities for both traditional and modern design approaches.

Having recently posted a look back at select Hammer & Hand kitchen remodel projects, I thought I’d also gather cool bathroom remodel projects here in one blog post, too.  Because our remodel work in Portland is so diverse – from Victorian restorations to high concept modern design, and from full-on estates to compact homes to lofts to tiny houses – our bathroom remodels vary widely in style, size and finish details.  Have a look!

I just posted this trick in a Field Notes post a couple days ago.  The bathroom, as the (usually) smallest room in the house, can be a prime spot for spatial transformation. How can you maximize space through clever design?  Well, one way is with a hidden shower.  Check this one out.

This bathroom on the second floor of an addition remodel seamlessly blends classic floor finishes and an old-school vanity with contemporary touches like a wall-mounted toilet and an “apple martini” counter top.  Our goal: “stay true to the house” while upcycling the home to 21st century life.

Unlike all the other bathroom links in this post, this is one is for a new house.  This bathroom is notable for its translucent wall that provides basic privacy while allowing natural light to flood into the shower and bathroom environs.  Reclaimed barnwood flooring finishes the space.
