Bathrooms are often the forgotten and awkward relative of the family that many people avoid talking to. Even though we spend a lot of time in there throughout our lives, they tend to lack luster in the excitement of home remodeling. Nonetheless, there is a clear difference from a warm inviting bathroom and one that you don’t want any of your bare skin to touch (cue rundown gas station bathroom horror). Thankfully, we weren’t to that point and had a lot to work with to make this room shine.
This is our upstairs bathroom before. White walls with the diamond jubilee vinyl tile in white/green. (Not shown are the multiple towel racks.)
However, just like the rest of the house, we saw the potential for greatness. So we splashed on a cool grey on the walls and put in this beautiful commack pine laminate flooring (the same flooring as our kitchen since we had a box and a half extra of the planks). And poof! The bathroom took on a whole new look with very little effort!
I loved how the bathroom turned out with just getting the room painted and the floor done! It has more of an inviting look to it. The semi-gloss of the paint helped hide any imperfections that we couldn’t fix and the grey made the trim really stand out.
The Rest of the To Do:
We’re still considering whether or not to paint the cabinets and replace the hardware to really bring out the life of the room. Not to mention we get to find/make some really cool decor now that the walls are free from the multiple towel racks. For now, we’re satisfied with the turn out.
I hope you enjoyed reading this short remodel post!
Till Next Time,
