Both of our bathrooms have terracotta on the walls, cracked tile on the floors, very old fixtures and peeling paint. They need to be gutted top to bottom, and as we’ve never designed a room from the studs before, we are very excited to get started!
For our main bathroom, we chose a statement black hexagon tile, and we’re revolving the room around it. 🙂 We’re taking out a single vanity and will replace it with a double floating vanity. After finding some sink faucets on clearance at Lowe’s, we decided to go with champagne bronze and matte black for the fixtures.
We will buy a new toilet, new tub and install a tile surround. We went with subway tile because it’s clean and classic. We’ll add a shower curtain that we already own, a few plants, some art, and we’ll pretty much be good to go!
When gutting your bathroom, it is inevitable that it will cost a bit to bring it back together. We don’t have the budget for the usual $10k bathroom reno, so we’ll be doing the demo ourselves (go Elliot go!), and buying quality but inexpensive fixtures and materials as much as we can. Our biggest costs will be our vanity ($1200) and the time it takes our contractor to tile and sort out the sub-floor.
