Our bathroom remodel is finalllllllly complete! REJOICE!
Some of these photos are from when we first moved into the house. We did a few minor updates to it so we could be content until we were able to complete the full gut and remodel. Our plan was to wait until our oldest son, Noah, left for college so we could use his bathroom while ours was torn apart.
Here are some ‘before’ photos from when we purchased the house.
I’m going to link all of the products below, but you can find all of them in my Amazon Store here.
So initially we painted the cabinets Alabaster and the walls SW Needlepoint Navy. That was it and we haven’t updated anything in it since we moved in.
Well…Noah left for college in the fall then we wrapped up the other projects in the house and we wasted no time getting started in the bathroom!!!
I went with my friend, Deborah Way (who also happens to be an interior decorator), to a local tile place in Kansas City called Global Stone.
This is the theme we came up with; a decorative geode tile around the bathtub, with more neutral, larger stones in the shower and flooring accented by a gold tile and gray cabinets and white walls.
When we purchased the geode decorative tiles, we ordered waaaaay too much! So when we realized we had a ton leftover, we decided to put an accent wall behind the toilet and turns out, that’s my FAVORITE thing about the entire bathroom.
We painted the walls and trim the same shade of white because I didn’t there to be a line of gray around the top of the room. Plus my friend, Deb, said it would help it all to feel more cohesive. She was soooooo right!
Note: I like the look of the tub but ultimately it’s my least favorite thing about the bathroom; it’s not quite deep enough for us, so we are on the hunt for another one!
The thing that made the BIGGEST difference in the entire room however was replacing the block windows behind the bathtub. This trend was soooooo popular in Kansas City when our house was built 15 years ago but I wanted to have something that I could see out of and would let tons of light through.
We have put shades on most of the windows in the house from Budget Blinds and we put them all on remotes so they are operated by the press of a button. Soooo easy!
I’m obsessed with how the space turned out. I owe a big thank you to our amazing contractor David Nelson! If you want to work with him you can contact him at [email protected].
It was a longer process than we thought it would be but isn’t that how all remodel projects go?
The room feels 20 years younger and 20 pounds lighter!
