Funds Lavatory Refresh | Centsational Fashion

One of many initiatives I completed throughout my keep in Florida was the ultimate touches on this small toilet refresh. Once we purchased this home we talked about extending this toilet into the rear yard to make it bigger since it’s the major toilet, however determined as a substitute to easily give it an replace so it felt extra fashionable. (We determined towards growth since this isn’t our without end residence once we ultimately make the total time leap to Florida subsequent 12 months.)

I didn’t wish to spend a ton of cash giving it an replace so this toilet refresh was accomplished on a price range. I shopped for inexpensive supplies to problem myself. The biggest bills had been labor, we would have liked to take away a hideous florescent gentle and set up new wires for a sconce above the mirror and in addition a vent to the surface for moisture/odor. We additionally needed to pay for a plumber to return and transfer the self-importance pipes from the proper to the left for higher stream. The labor prices had been a number of hundred {dollars}, however so value it.

Right here’s the area I began with. Discover the previous laminate cupboard, the pink formica countertop (wow!), the dated and dingy grey porcelain flooring, and the horrific florescent gentle fixture that ate up the ceiling. I modified all of that.

Right here is the area in the present day! It has a brand new mid century type walnut self-importance on the left as a substitute of the proper to permit for extra smart entry and exit into the stroll in bathe. New lighting, mirror, storage, and tile give the area a a lot more energizing look!

Shifting the self-importance to the left was important to me, it permits one individual to brush their tooth if one other is within the bathe. Earlier than the tap was straight in entrance of the bathe door which made completely no sense, and there was a variety of wasted area on this toilet earlier than.

The brand new self-importance is 6” extra shallow than the earlier countertop, permitting for additional area to maneuver round. I really like the legs, it permits for straightforward sweeping and mopping beneath.

We misplaced countertop area however I created extra horizontal surfaces with a metallic and wooden storage shelf and slightly glass shelf above it. Above the bathroom (not proven) I’m including a tall IKEA Godmorgan medication cupboard for much more storage.

I repurposed the white towel bar, it was completely good so it stayed, identical for the white rest room paper holder subsequent to the bathroom.

The brand new flooring and backsplash is a brilliant inexpensive white porcelain grid mosaic that we put in on each the ground and wall. It’s easy, basic, and really cheap. It runs up the wall behind the self-importance so as to add safety towards splashing water.

The toilet shelf is from IKEA I merely spray painted it a brushed brass end to coordinate with the golden tones within the mirror and film body. It gives slightly ledge for smaller toiletries and show.

The artwork is my very own sketch that I colorized in a muted pastel desert palette, I’ll be including it to my print store subsequent week.

What didn’t change in any respect was the tile within the bathe. It’s your primary 4×4” ubiquitous white tile and it was completely good so it stayed. That grid design I repeated on the ground in order that they complement one another. You possibly can see a glimpse of the bathe tile on this picture. The bathe door is chrome and ultimately I could substitute it however possibly not since it really works completely wonderful and as everyone knows, new bathe doorways will be pricey.

There are 6 further inches of area between the bathe and the shelf since eradicating the previous self-importance and tap. A bit extra room to maneuver round when exiting the bathe makes an enormous distinction!

The wall shade is White Sand by Benjamin Moore, it’s a pale beige which I’ll positively use once more, it’s an ideal impartial.

We put in a brand new consolation peak rest room (not proven) within the 3×4’ rest room nook to the proper and above it I’m hanging an IKEA tall Godmorgon toilet self-importance cupboard for extra storage. Total I’m more than happy with how the area turned out and it’s way more nice to bathe and prep in right here than it was a 12 months in the past!
