Submitted by Elizabeth and Co.

 

At long last, our bathroom renovation project is complete! I’ve shared a few sneak peeks, but here it is finally all put together.

Now to appreciate how far we’ve come, you’re going to have to see the before. It will only hurt for a second…

This is the original upstairs hall bath for our children and guests in our 32-year old house. It was one of those projects that started and stalled many times over the years. It ended up being the very last room in our house to be updated.

I know, it looked like a really bad motel bathroom.

You sometimes needed a wrench to turn on the faucet in the shower. Doesn’t everyone keep a wrench handy for showering?

And yes, I do believe those are sheep, roosters, horses and bunnies on the wallpaper. You know I can hear you laughing, right?

Okay, enough of that, back to the pretty pictures!

The room was completely gutted, no need to save a thing. It’s a very small room and there were no options for changing the footprint. But I knew it could be pretty and functional. My goals were light and bright, clean and fresh; modern with a touch of vintage. The colors and some of the fixtures relate directly to the master bathroom down the hall. I really like continuity and repeating elements throughout a house. I think it helps to create great flow from room to room.

The cabinetry was ordered from Lowes and we found that you can get more customization (and at a lower price) if you order from the kitchen department instead of the bath department. We appreciated the savings and got the exact specifications for our space. The Corian counter top (in Sahara) on the other hand, had to be ordered from the bath department because it wasn’t big enough to order from the kitchen department. Silly rules.

The faucets and shower hardware are all from Delta’s Victorian line. We’ve used them throughout the house. Did I mention that I like continuity?

The light sconces, mirror, towel ring and hooks are all from Pottery Barn.

I very much prefer hooks to towel bars. I find that the towels are easier to hang up, they always look neat, they dry faster and they just look cute!

The shells and stones were collected on vacations. You may have heard that this family has a thing for rocks.

I love the creamy ironstone platters against the blue wall. They are a fun and a little unexpected.

I’ve had this little cabinet for years. It’s moved around from room to room. I think it’s finally found a home. And I love the addition of the vintage clocks.

The bead board was a must! I have it in every bathroom and my laundry room.

But it’s the floor that gets the most comments.

The shower curtain is a white waffle weave from Target.

A light in the shower was also a must in this tiny bathroom with no natural light. No dark and dreary corners allowed.

And I think the shower tile really ties it all together. It is a combination of glass and natural stone. It just sparkles!

  1. This is great. We have a bathroom that we are planning to make over. It is similar to yours – you walk in and greet the toilet. I really hate that so we want to turn it to “hide” next to the sink. I’m assuming you had a plumber do the work to relocate the toilet? And, great tip to use a kitchen cabinet instead of just looking in the bathroom aisle. Great remodel – thanks for sharing.

  2. Just saw your redo – love it. I have the same bathroom layout as your “after” picture. I was wondering about your mosaic tile in the shower. Are you happy with your choice? Is it easy to keep clean with all the grout lines? And finally, where did you get it? – it looks beautiful!

    1. Hi Kim! This post is from a guest a couple years back, so you might need to click over to her blog to ask (linked at the top of the post), since I’m not sure if she’s monitoring comments here or not. Sorry I’m not more help! Thanks for the comment!

  3. Where do you get the wood grain tiles from? I am obsessed with them as we are about to remodel our hallway bathroom. Also, how much did adding heated floors cost? I am trying to convince my boyfriend that we need them! ????
