Loving Our New Bathroom!

When we moved onto the homestead, we knew the house would need a lot of work. There were some “interesting” design features that made you go “What the…” However, due to needing to take care of family, any remodel has taken the back burner. Prioritized at the bottom of the list of all the to do items. Finally, we were able to start with one of our bathrooms and I am loving how it turned out.

Here’s a before. It doesn’t show the tub area since that area was in such poor condition that it was horribly embarrassing.

We gutted the bathroom entirely and replaced everything but the toilet which we cleaned up and reinstalled on a brand new wax ring.

From top to bottom:

  • Vanity Light Fixture was purchased on Amazon: https://amzn.to/46a7Hc3
  • We repurposed the existing mirror took it to Hobby Lobby and had it framed.
  • The Vanity was purchased at Lowes. We swapped out the brushed gold the vanity came with to brushed nickel handles that my son picked out: https://www.lowes.com/pd/allen-roth/5013803721
  • The all the fixtures were also purchased at Lowes and Home Depot. We used the Ladera collection by Pfister. We wanted something simple, with clean, smooth lines.: https://www.pfisterfaucets.com/bathroom/collections/ladera
  • The hand towel rack is temporary and prexisting. We will add a cabinet between the toilet and the sink and to that we will mount a hand towel rack.

The wall tile and the accent tile was purchased from Floor and Decor.

The shower caddies are from Amazon (they just stick on – no drilling through tile!!): https://amzn.to/40PBE09

Since this is my son’s bathroom, as well as, a guest bathroom, I managed to find a Phoenix shower curtain. (He loves Phoenix’s!): Eksed Phoenix Shower Curtain We, also, used a washable shower curtain liner that we found at Walmart.

For a towel holder we needed to get a tiny bit creative because of the window location and it needed to be easily accessible from the tub. None of use like to step out of the tub and drip water everywhere as we try to reach for a towel. This swivel towel rack is neat because we can swivel it out to easily reach from within the tub but then we can swivel it back against the wall when not in use. We found the NearMoon Swivel Towel Rack on Amazon which met our needs quite nicely.

Overall, I am quite happy with how it turned out. One room down….way too many left to do.
