Before & After: Bye Bye to '80s Builder Grade Tile

Before & After: Bye Bye to '80s Builder Grade Tile

When Alexia purchased her first house, she got all of the freedom and joy that come with homeownership as well as some very '80s bathroom tile. With a trip to IKEA, some lucky finds and some smartly shopped tile, Alexia was able to create a soothing space on a budget.

From Alexia: My house is from the early 1980s, the bathroom was carpeted when I moved in (I stripped and sanded) and the 'before' tiles were the original builders d├ęcor.

The IKEA shelves were half price ex-display and the tiles were on sale. I also bought all the shelf storage in T.J. Maxx (T.K. Maxx in Ireland).

You can see more on Alexia's blog Rough House Style. Thank you, Alexia!
