ORC FALL 2017 The Guest Bath

ORC FALL 2017 The Guest Bath

It is that time of year again, and I am so excited to announce that JENRON DESIGNS will be a guest participant in the ORC FALL 2017 The Guest Bath.

This season we will be a guest participant for the ORC FALL 2017, The Guest Bath a Jack & Jill will be our primary focus this season.

In case you are wondering what the “ORC” is, here is the scoop. Twice a year, April/ October, for the past 11 seasons, the ORC has hosted over 200 interior design bloggers, as they join together and choose one room in their homes to make over. The designers only have six weeks, from start to finish in order to complete a full room transformation. To give you a better idea you can check out our very first ORC Spring Challenge the Sleeping Porch, and here are some fun flashback before and after pictures to get your ready for our next challenge. 

Each week the guest designer’s will link their progress to the ORC host page Calling It Home, and share their room’s progress. The best part you will be able to follow along with JENRON DESIGNS and all the participants progress just by clicking the ORC. The final completion date and big reveal of our Guest Bathroom makeover will be on Thursday, Nov. 9th!!! I might regret choosing the guest bathroom this close to the holidays, but hopefully by the end we will have a pretty new bathroom for all our holiday guests.


WEEK 1        WEEK 2      WEEK 3     WEEK 4     WEEK 5     WEEK 6

FALL 2017 Mission: The Jack n’ Jill Guest Bath


As you can see this space is very plain, and while this is actually new construction and everything is brand new, it just lacks any kind of feature or focal point with in the room. To me it is all just a big vanilla box, even the basic light fixtures we picked upon building 2 years ago are boring.

Since the space is on the smaller side, I do not want to add any colors that are too dark. I want to keep it very light and airy. I am thinking some custom built, white wainscoting or batten board. It should  to be about 5 feet tall mourned the room with a small ledge.  I also think we need to  add a custom frame around the big blank builder grade mirror. I am thinking I would like to add some hooks, to go behind the bedroom door. So you have a place to hang up your towels to dry. Not sure what that will like like yet. Maybe barn wood with rustic farm hooks??? I am just not sure yet.

We actually though about a barn door here to eliminate having so many doors in this room, but after measuring we realized that it would jut into the toilet room doorway a little too much.  So we decided we would just add one to the adjacent bedroom, later on instead. Which would also open up that hook space we are creating. The shower is very basic so I am thinking a nice crisp white shower curtain maybe with a touch of embroidery, nothing too pattern or dark since this are is very small. It could be textured as long as it is white.

We did opt to have the shower completely tiled instead of a pre fab drop in tub. By doing this we also got the soap niche built in which provides great in shower space  for soap, shampoo, etc. I think it just make your space feel more custom built. Permanent things, like millwork and wall tile adds a sense of evaluation in a home, especially the bathroom. We did put up this towel bar upon moving in, and I do like the silver nickel finish. So I think we will keep this one and find something in a similar finish for the sink area.  Currently we have a towel ring that sits on the countertop which I do not really like but it works for now. However, every time we have guests I hear it get pulled or knocked over and clank on the countertop. So it just needs to go. I also might find a new toilet paper dispenser that attaches to the wall, but I do like the current one since it holds extra rolls in the base, so the jury is still out on the accessory too.

I do still love my choices for the countertop, tile, cabinets and plumbing fixtures. So we will be keeping all of those items which will save us some money. Plus they are all new, and when we build the house I made my selections basis on the current styles and trends.
I know we need  some new light fixtures. Let me tell you how much I loath the “boob light” in the toilet room!!! Yikes why are these even a part of the basic light package? Nobody likes them!!!! Plus even with the best photo light filter on the planet, my pictures still turned out yellow due to insufficient lighting.

    I heard one of my cousins talking about the ORC over the holidays I had to check it out, that is how I found your site. I must say I really like your inspiration board, what a great idea before starting a project. I assume it is part of the rules for the ORC to have one, but I like one just for myself. I love your site too, so I am bookmarking to come back later.

  183. Callie Enlar

    I love this challenge, it always leads me to the current leaders of the design field. You have great ideas and I really like that you show the DIY side of things instead of just hiring the work out. Some people like to do it themselves, so this helps to separate you from the pack.

  184. Helen
