The finish line is approaching on this two bedroom investment property we purchased last spring. This hall bathroom needed a full remodel so we brought in a demo crew and got rid of all the old cabinets and finishes.
This bathroom was difficult to photograph because it’s small and there is limited natural light, but I was able to capture a few shots yesterday.
Last year it looked like this:
Now it looks like this:
This hall bathroom had the additional challenge of removing the old tub and constructing a walk in shower. I replaced the old vinyl floor with wood look waterproof flooring. I removed the bulky medicine cabinet and I replaced the vanity with a more modern style.
I also replaced the light fixture, mirror, faucet, and accessories. I blended matte black towel bars, toilet paper holder, toilet handle, and mirror with gold light fixtures, faucets, and trim because I love the look of mixing metal finishes in bathrooms and kitchens.
We had to completely reconstruct the floor beneath the old bathtub and add a curb for the walk in shower. I added a different mosaic tile to the floor but one that shared the same wood tones as the waterproof flooring (sources below).
The tile is 3×12 installed in a vertical stack bond format. I had my contractor add a niche to the back wall under the window for shampoo, soap, etc. and my tile installer trimmed it in brass. That detail is so pretty up close! I also chose a fixed shower panel instead of shower doors to make this smaller bathroom feel more open and airy. Because the entry to the shower is on the right, I had the dial placed there for added convenience.
Stay tuned for the kitchen and master bath reveals coming soon!
