The Master Bath Reno

Monday, October 15, 2012

Our Master Bathroom was the second room we tackled (which went hand in hand with making our bedroom our first priority). Fortunately, the tile in the shower was black and white, so we decided to keep it since that does work with our bedroom. There were only a few other items we decided to reuse. Of course, the main thing that had to go was the flooring, so this small bathroom gave us an opportunity to learn the art of tiling. Justin handled pretty much all of the hard stuff and my main tasks involved sewing the shower curtain and shopping for accessories (I did help with a few other things, like snapping tiles for the edges!). Here are a couple of lists that break down more specifics on our bathroom renovation.

What We Reused/Didn't Touch:
  • Light fixture
  • Shower
  • Toilet
  • Vanity (however, we did upgrade it a little)

  • Tile floor (this was our very first tiling experience)
  • Install new base trim
  • Re-paint vanity (spray painting didn't work, so we had to paint by hand)
  • Replace counter top
  • Add faucet
  • Replace towel racks, hanging towel holder, toilet paper holder, etc.
  • Replace shower head
  • Take out medicine cabinet
  • Replace mirror
  • Replace shower curtain rod (you'll note we hung it up high to create the feeling of tall ceilings... trust us, this really works!)
  • New shower curtain (this was my sewing project)
  • New rug
  • New Toilet Cover (only $6 and honestly it made a big difference in how it looks!)
  • Dual flush system (not worth it since we have an older house and it hasn't worked properly)
  • Add shelves above toilet
  • Replace exhaust fan (not originally in the plan, but needed to be replaced)
  • Paint walls and ceiling white
