This stay-cation, I finally had the chance to chip away at my home projects. I’ve painted, tiled, grout-ed this winter break in between making wonderful holiday memories with my family. Today I’m sharing our guest bath project that is FINALLY (just about) finished. You know how it goes...there’s always some extra little thing to wrap up when it comes to renovating!
Below is how this bathroom use to look when we moved in almost 10 years ago. We love this house for the little charming details throughout but from day-one this bathroom was on my demo-list. Nothing charming about about that 80’s vinyl flooring!
I spruced up the room over time by painting the old cabinet and adding new hardware and decor but once our other priority projects were complete in our home, it was time to get moving on this bath project. Here are some progress photos once we finished demo.
My husband and I decided to gut this room completely last year except for the tub. It’s an original tub from when the home was built in 1950 and seriously keeps in the heat like no other standard tub sold today and I just love the shape and groves in the front bib of the tub nodding to the original era. We installed flooring, vanity, toilet, and tile surround that freshen up this room. The shower tile provides a mid-century appeal keeping true to the original integrity of the home and the flooring and Ben Moore Classic Gray for the wall color keep the room feeling bright, modern, and fresh. The light colors and the tile to the ceiling help this little guest bathroom appear larger. Adding in some sweet details like the navy towels, simple white shower curtain, and rustic elements like the aged enamel shelf help bring in that farmhouse appeal.
I hope you find some inspiration here at Gardenia Home Design. Remember that all home projects take time and some projects have to wait. My kitchen for instance will be in hiding from social media and blogs until future notice (hehe) but I’m happy to share my lovely bathrooms and bedrooms! No home is perfect but your home should be a lovely reflection of your and your family. Wishing you a Happy and Healthy 2019!
