Several months have passed since we have remodeled our bathroom, and I am very happy with the outcome of the remodel. The bathroom project was the costliest part of the renovation of our old house; however, considering the transformation, I think that this remodel was worth every penny.
For several years the house was a rental and some of the “updates” were made by our long term renter to suit his needs and taste, so there were a lot of things that we had to completely redo or change.
After deciding to take back the possession of our house, the first thing we wanted to change was the bathroom and the kitchen.
The original bathroom was the typical forties bathroom of a small rancher; very small size, small shallow tub, a toilet and a vanity with an overall boring and tired look. Since changing the size of the bathroom was impossible, we were looking for ideas on how to make changes that would create the feel of a larger space.
However, while we wanted the space to feel larger, we had to focus on a design that would not involve changes in plumbing, so this way we would remain within our budget.
In the end we decided to take out the tub and replace it with a walk in shower and frameles glass doors. This decision proved to be the right one as this change alone instantly made the small bathroom feel much larger.
I opted for a frameless vanity mirror to complement the frameless shower door and create an elegant and minimalistic feel. The simple, white narrow shelving below the mirror and above the toilet tank add an interest to that wall. By changing accessories on those shelves I can always create various looks so my bathroom can be always interesting.
The bathroom floor as well as the shower enclosure is tiled all the way up to the ceiling with natural stone mosaic tiles.
Now, are you ready for that BEFORE and AFTER moment?
Have you done any major remodeling lately? I would love to hear from you.
