Blueprint for Improvement: Old Northside bathroom gets a timeless update



This stunning loft is in the Old Northside neighborhood of Indianapolis. Built in 1901, the building originally housed the Indianapolis Power & Light Co. In recent years, the space has been divided and sold as individual lofts.

The master bathroom was nicely finished; however, it didn’t offer a bathtub, which was a “must-have” for these homeowners. The goal was to create space for a relaxing soaker tub while keeping the shower and amping up the style.



By shifting the location of the door and pushing the vanity back, we were able to open up the space and add a freestanding tub.

  2. Beautifully coordinated accessories – from the Moravian star hanging pendant to the faucets and mirrors – in a stylish champagne bronze finish add to the “wow” factor.
  3. Wall sconces were added to soften the light reflected in the mirror.
  4. A quartz countertop and painted maple cabinetry round out the features of this stunning bathroom makeover.
