Bathroom Remodel

Evanston Traditional Bathroom

123 Remodeling had the chance to work in a Victorian rowhouse this year, with the monumental task of updating this ancient bathroom. With all new tile, nickel fixtures, heated floors, and a bit of style, this is a transitional bathroom that embraces the historic house without looking Old.
