If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know I have been teasing a remodel of our main bathroom for A WHILE. We did a “phase 1” refresh of this bathroom when we moved in which consisted of painting the walls, laying peel and stick tile, removing the giant builder grade mirror and adding some new decor pieces including new mirrors, a runner rug and lighting.
While that refresh made the bathroom look much nicer, we always knew that a larger remodel was in our future (once we saved up a bit). The tile in the shower is in rough shape, the grout is stained and chipping in areas, some tiles are chipped, and it’s just generally outdated. Our sinks are cracked and stained, and the inside of the cabinets and drawers are in bad shape.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane shall we?
Before (when we moved in):
It’s not terrible, it’s big and everything was in fine, usable shape. Just a bit dated, and not our style!
Current State (after the refresh):
It’s amazing what some paint, peel and stick tile, and accessories can do, right?! I did this update about 3 months after we moved in and we have been living with it for nearly 3 years! In general, this is a great bathroom in this current state, but we have saved up and are ready for a big update!
And now for the fun part!
EVERYTHING MUST GO! This is going to be the largest renovation that we have done since we moved into this house, and I am so dang excited! Sooo here is the plan!
I am SO excited to be working with Vintage Tub & Bath for a portion of this remodel and will be incorporating their tub, toilet and vanity in our bathroom! In my original design, I had included a grey and white diamond checker pattern for the floors (inspo here), but after sourcing the floors and understanding the additional cost that would entail, I moved away from that. Full transparency, we will likely not live in this home forever, and it feels like the best choice to make this bathroom neutral and beautiful, without adding any crazy bold features that may go out of style in the next few years (gotta maximize that return!).
I love how this design feels timeless and traditional, while incorporating some more modern touches and I’m so excited to see how it all unfolds! The exact start date is still TBD, but we should be starting demo by the end of October so stay tuned!
