Bathroom Remodel Project
Over the past few weeks I’ve been helping my friends’ mother design her outdated bathroom. After seeing this bathroom with pink tiles (very similar to the bathroom in the house where I grew up!) I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! The design goal was to update it with modern, durable finishes at a modest price point. This is the main bathroom primarily used by three young, active children so I knew everything needed to withstand the test of time. Having nephews (and a sweet baby niece) I know how easily children can destruct something you thought could never break. The shower tiles are classic white subway tiles that will never look dated, and the flooring we installed is a beautiful linen porcelain tile similar to this. Choosing beautiful materials is the easy part! The biggest challenge was finding a quality vanity that was about 14″ deep with enough counter space. The space is very, very narrow and I needed something to free up floor space to make the bathroom visually appear larger. The toilet location is staying as is because if we flipped it your knees would hit the tub when you sat down. Not the most comfortable seat!
Below are some cell phone progress shots so I apologize if they’re blurry. Once the project is completed I’ll take some proper after shots!
AFTER DEMO / AFTER NEW SHEETROCK INSTALLED: (What a HUGE difference already, don’t you think!?)
AFTER THE TILES WERE INSTALLED / BEFORE TILES WERE GROUTED:
Phew! I am so excited to see the final result. Now if only my parents would let me remodel their bathroom already…. :)
