Look! Gisela's New Bathrooms

Reader Gisela was eager to show us her updated bathroom before Bathroom Month ends. In addition to sharing pictures (both before and after) she has thoughtfully shared all her resources with the AT Community...

Last year my bedroom was featured on Apartment Therapy NY for bedroom month. We have since moved to our first house! It is an art deco house, and was a real fixer upper (gut rehab) on Miami Beach. While I am anxious to send you all the pics of our renovation, it isn't done, yet. However, the bathrooms are done and I would like to share them with you for bathroom month...

Our house has four bathrooms and we renovated three of them. We bought the house from the original owners' children and it was pretty much untouched except for some bad 60s renovations. Each of the pre-renovated bathrooms had drop ceilings, disgusting shag carpeting (!) and hideous tile that the previous owners used to cover up the original Art Deco tile/colors.

Our first challenge was the master bathroom. The original bathroom was a tiny box. To make it bigger, we claimed the adjoining master closet and pushed the whole thing out a foot. We kept the same configurations in the other two bathrooms, however we took out a tub and installed a shower in its place. I also included a picture of the medicine cabinet in our guest bath, to make our guests feel welcome.

The last bathroom was in pretty good condition so we kept it as is, just adding a fresh coat of paint and changing out the toilet, sink, faucets, showerhead and sconce. The bathrooms still need artwork and more homey touches, but that will evolve in time.

Our resources are mixed, and we used every coupon and sale that we could, like Home Depot's 10% mover coupon and hit Restoration Hardware when they had their bathroom month sales.
