My room makeover::
The bathroom was one of the first things we needed to tackle in our new home. It had gone through many partial renovations with a mix of tiles, colors, hardware, etc. The counter was low, there was no air circulation, and poor lighting.
We started demo and realized quickly that this would be more work than we thought - the floor was 3" of concrete that had to be jack-hammered out, the wall construction was a double wythe brick wall with tile directly applied so it did not come off clean, and there were pieces of old lead pipe we needed to replace. It took 8 weekends and some week nights to finish, and almost everything in the bathroom is new.
Total cost was around $4,300.
Vanity - $720
Bathtub - $335
Wall tile - $600 (installed)
Mirror - $50 (frame we custom made, about $25)
Pendant Lights - $170
Can lights, fan - $330 (installed)
Floor Tile - $100
Toilet - $13
Everything else (plumbing, wood studs, drywall, paint, etc.) - around $2000
My makeover advice::
Plan ahead as much as you can - but be prepared to roll with the changes, especially if you have an older house.
What I love most about my new space::
I love how clean and light the space feels, it's very calming and perfect for taking a relaxing bath. It makes getting ready every morning seem less hectic in a calm space.
