Full Bath Remodel

When we purchased the house it was a known fact the full bath would need a major gut prior to moving in. Other than everything falling apart, we weren't too keen on the pink. So on the day we closed Nick and my dad started the demo process. Everything came out to be replaced.  When they were done the bathroom looked like this.


Since the space was a decent size it allowed us to go from one sink to two. No need to fight over the sink anymore. The vanity lighting was moved and we added lighting in the shower and above the toilet. Instead of adding a ceiling vent to help prevent mold we went with a wall heater.

Within a week of our offer being accepted I bought the vanity and sink. Funny story. I was at Lowe's browsing when I spotted a double sink vanity(sink not included) marked down to $75! After chatting with the sales clerk he marked it down again to $60! I walked out of Lowe's with a brand new in the box Allen + Roth Vanity and sink for the low price of $283! Can you say S-c-o-r-e! I love a good deal and this may have been my deal of the year.

The shower curtain, towel rack, and hand towels are all from Target. While the curtain rod and hooks were purchased from Ross Dress for Less. The mirror was something we already had and lucky us it was a perfect fit.

We painted the walls Travertine Trail and accented the walls with swiss coffee (white) on the ceiling & trim, both were from Kelly More Paints  and in a semi-gloss finish.

Like I mentioned previously, the pink and teal tile had to go and it did. The toilet (not pictured) was matching pink! If you look closely at the below before picture you'll see there was a light switch in the shower?!  Needless to say it was moved it to a "safe" location. I think Mike Holmes would appreciate this one :)

Another feature we added was the built-in shelving unit in the shower. This was a feature my Dad and Sue added to their shower years ago and I knew it was something I wanted in mine.  No need to hang an ugly shower caddy when you have a built-in shelf. Since we didn't have much time to finish the bathroom prior to moving in we had makes decisions quickly and skip on the DIY. 

All the tile was purchased from Home Depot and installed by a local tiler. We didn't have the time to DIY the tile ourselves...there's always the mud room. Instead of using chrome for all the faucets we decided on brushed nickle. The shower/tub faucets are the Eva model from Moen. After much debate on a walk in shower or another tub we went with a Ensemble Tub from Sterling Kohler which we picked up at Lowe's. At the end of the day everything turned out great and we couldn't be happier.

    1. Brittany,

      Thanks for stopping by. Yes it needed some major TLC. Plus there was no way I would want anyone to use it in the condition it was in.
