Before and After: A $3,800 Scandi-Inspired Redo Transforms a Beige-on-Beige Bathroom


Homeowner Alice Kauban wasn’t in love with her bathroom, which was a veritable buffet of beige. But a future renovation was not in the cards.

She wanted the bathroom to feel brighter and more energizing, so she planned a project that would give it a cosmetic refresh without altering anything structural.

Alice was inspired by Scandi design, and wanted her bathroom to reflect those light, bright, and simple stylings.

She and her husband painted the floors, vanities, and walls themselves, and hired a pro to paint the shower area for the best finish. 

They also updated the vanities with a few other changes: new wood countertops, new black hardware, and fresh sinks and plumbing fixtures installed by a pro plumber.

The total cost for the update — paint, hardware, lighting, countertops, sinks, fixtures, and pro labor — was $3,800, coming in under the couple’s expected $4,000 budget.
