Erin and Tobin had been living with a bathroom that was fairly functional, but cramped — and in desperate need of a modern update. The two creatives decided to tackle the project themselves, but as anyone who has ever taken on a remodel knows, projects can take longer than expected. This “weekend endeavor” turned into a six-week transformation, but the result was well worth the wait!

They began by removing all of the old flooring and hardware, then realized the whole sub floor would need to be rebuilt — which turned out to be a big undertaking! Once that was structurally sound, they had the help of a certified electrician take care of the wiring, Erin laid the new floor tile, and they both worked on the construction of the steam shower.

A simple coat of bright paint, open shelving, DIY lighting and a single IKEA sink and vanity completed the bright, modern and earthy space. With a little help — and their own ingenuity and hard work — the couple transformed this outdated space into a spacious steam shower retreat. Those cold New England winters just got a lot cozier!
