Price range Toilet Refresh | Centsational Fashion

One of many tasks I completed throughout my keep in Florida was the ultimate touches on this small lavatory refresh. After we purchased this home we talked about extending this lavatory into the rear yard to make it bigger since it’s the main 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 ceaselessly dwelling once we ultimately make the total time bounce to Florida subsequent 12 months.)

I didn’t wish to spend a ton of cash giving it an replace so this lavatory refresh was accomplished on a funds. I shopped for cheaper supplies to problem myself. The most important bills had been labor, we would have liked to take away a hideous florescent mild and set up new wires for a sconce above the mirror and likewise a vent to the skin for moisture/odor. We additionally needed to pay for a plumber to come back and transfer the self-importance pipes from the precise to the left for higher circulation. The labor prices had been a number of hundred {dollars}, however so price it.

Right here’s the area I began with. Discover the previous laminate cupboard, the pink formica countertop (wow!), the dated and dingy grey porcelain flooring, and the horrific florescent mild fixture that ate up the ceiling. I modified all of that.

Right here is the area at this time! It has a brand new mid century fashion walnut self-importance on the left as a substitute of the precise to permit for extra wise entry and exit into the stroll in bathe. New lighting, mirror, storage, and tile give the area a a lot more energizing look!

Shifting the self-importance to the left was important to me, it permits one individual to brush their enamel if one other is within the bathe. Earlier than the tap was instantly in entrance of the bathe door which made completely no sense, and there was loads of wasted area on this lavatory earlier than.

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

We misplaced countertop area however I created extra horizontal surfaces with a steel and wooden storage shelf and just a little glass shelf above it. Above the bathroom (not proven) I’m including a tall IKEA Godmorgan medication 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 ground 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 self-importance so as to add safety in opposition to splashing water.

The toilet shelf is from IKEA I merely spray painted it a brushed brass end to coordinate with the golden tones within the mirror and film body. It offers just a little 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’ll be able to 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 nice and as everyone knows, new bathe doorways could be expensive.

There are 6 further inches of area between the bathe and the shelf since eradicating the previous self-importance and tap. A bit extra room to maneuver round when exiting the bathe makes an enormous distinction!

The wall colour is White Sand by Benjamin Moore, it’s a pale beige which I’ll positively use once more, it’s an ideal impartial.

We put in a brand new consolation peak bathroom (not proven) within the 3×4’ bathroom nook to the precise and above it I’m hanging an IKEA tall Godmorgon lavatory self-importance cupboard for added storage. Total I’m very 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!
