One of many tasks I completed throughout my keep in Florida was the ultimate touches on this small lavatory refresh. Once we purchased this home we talked about extending this lavatory into the rear yard to make it bigger since it’s the major lavatory, however determined as a substitute to easily give it an replace so it felt extra fashionable. (We determined in opposition to enlargement since this isn’t our endlessly house once we ultimately make the complete time soar to Florida subsequent 12 months.)

I didn’t need to spend a ton of cash giving it an replace so this lavatory refresh was accomplished on a price range. I shopped for inexpensive supplies to problem myself. The most important bills have 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 surface for moisture/odor. We additionally needed to pay for a plumber to return and transfer the vainness pipes from the proper to the left for higher movement. The labor prices have been a number of hundred {dollars}, however so value it.

Right here’s the area 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 Discover the outdated laminate cupboard, the pink formica countertop (wow!), the dated and dingy grey porcelain flooring, and the horrific florescent gentle fixture that ate up the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 area as we speak! It has a brand new mid century model walnut vainness on the left as a substitute of the proper to permit for extra smart entry and exit into the stroll in bathe. New lighting, mirror, storage, and tile give the area a a lot more energizing look!

Transferring the vainness to the left was important to me, it permits one individual to brush their tooth 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 area on this lavatory earlier than.

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

We misplaced countertop area however I created extra horizontal surfaces with a metallic and wooden storage shelf and a little bit 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, similar for the white bathroom paper holder subsequent to the bathroom.

The brand new flooring and backsplash is a brilliant 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 in opposition to 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 supplies a little bit 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 fundamental 4×4” ubiquitous white tile and it was completely good so it stayed. That grid design I repeated on the ground so that they complement one another. You possibly can see a glimpse of the bathe tile on this picture. The bathe door is chrome and ultimately I’ll change it however possibly not since it really works completely fantastic and as everyone knows, new bathe doorways may be pricey.

There are 6 further inches of area 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 a giant distinction!

The wall shade 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 bathroom (not proven) within the 3×4’ bathroom nook to the proper and above it I’m hanging an IKEA tall Godmorgon lavatory vainness cupboard for added storage. Total I’m more than happy with how the area turned out and it’s way more nice to bathe and prep in right here than it was a 12 months in the past!
