One of many initiatives I completed throughout my keep in Florida was the ultimate touches on this small rest room refresh. Once we purchased this home we talked about extending this rest room into the rear yard to make it bigger since it’s the major rest room, however determined as an alternative to easily give it an replace so it felt extra trendy. (We determined towards enlargement since this isn’t our ceaselessly dwelling once we ultimately make the complete time leap to Florida subsequent 12 months.)

I didn’t need to spend a ton of cash giving it an replace so this rest room refresh was accomplished on a price range. I shopped for cheaper supplies to problem myself. The biggest bills had been labor, we would have liked to take away a hideous florescent gentle and set up new wires for a sconce above the mirror and in addition a vent to the skin for moisture/odor. We additionally needed to pay for a plumber to come back and transfer the vainness pipes from the suitable to the left for higher circulation. The labor prices had been a number of hundred {dollars}, however so price it.

Right here’s the house I began with. Discover the outdated laminate cupboard, the pink formica countertop (wow!), the dated and dingy grey porcelain flooring, and the horrific florescent gentle fixture that ate up the ceiling. I modified all of that.

Right here is the house as we speak! It has a brand new mid century type walnut vainness on the left as an alternative of the suitable to permit for extra wise entry and exit into the stroll in bathe. New lighting, mirror, storage, and tile give the house a a lot more energizing look!

Shifting the vainness to the left was important to me, it permits one particular person to brush their enamel if one other is within the bathe. Earlier than the tap was straight in entrance of the bathe door which made completely no sense, and there was a whole lot of wasted house on this rest room earlier than.

The brand new vainness is 6” extra shallow than the earlier countertop, permitting for further house to maneuver round. I like the legs, it permits for straightforward sweeping and mopping beneath.

We misplaced countertop house however I created extra horizontal surfaces with a metallic and wooden storage shelf and just a little glass shelf above it. Above the bathroom (not proven) I’m including a tall IKEA Godmorgan drugs cupboard for much more storage.

I repurposed the white towel bar, it was completely good so it stayed, identical for the white rest room paper holder subsequent to the bathroom.

The brand new ground and backsplash is an excellent inexpensive white porcelain grid mosaic that we put in on each the ground and wall. It’s easy, traditional, and really cheap. It runs up the wall behind the vainness so as to add safety towards splashing water.

The lavatory shelf is from IKEA I merely spray painted it a brushed brass end to coordinate with the golden tones within the mirror and movie body. It gives just a little ledge for smaller toiletries and show.

The artwork is my very own sketch that I colorized in a muted pastel desert palette, I’ll be including it to my print store subsequent week.

What didn’t change in any respect was the tile within the bathe. It’s your primary 4×4” ubiquitous white tile and it was completely good so it stayed. That grid design I repeated on the ground in order that they complement one another. You’ll be able to see a glimpse of the bathe tile on this picture. The bathe door is chrome and ultimately I’ll change it however perhaps not since it really works completely effective and as everyone knows, new bathe doorways could be expensive.

There are 6 further inches of house between the bathe and the shelf since eradicating the outdated vainness and tap. A bit extra room to maneuver round when exiting the bathe makes an enormous distinction!

The wall coloration is White Sand by Benjamin Moore, it’s a pale beige which I’ll undoubtedly use once more, it’s an ideal impartial.

We put in a brand new consolation top rest room (not proven) within the 3×4’ rest room nook to the suitable and above it I’m hanging an IKEA tall Godmorgon rest room vainness cupboard for added storage. General I’m very happy with how the house turned out and it’s much more nice to bathe and prep in right here than it was a 12 months in the past!
