Finances Rest room Refresh | Centsational Type

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 an alternative to easily give it an replace so it felt extra fashionable. (We determined in opposition to enlargement since this isn’t our eternally house after we ultimately make the total time bounce to Florida subsequent yr.)

I didn’t wish to spend a ton of cash giving it an replace so this toilet refresh was accomplished on a finances. I shopped for cheaper supplies to problem myself. The most important bills have 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 likewise 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 precise to the left for higher stream. The labor prices have been a number of hundred {dollars}, however so value it.

Right here’s the house I began with. Discover the outdated laminate cupboard, the pink formica countertop (wow!), the dated and dingy grey porcelain flooring, and the horrific florescent gentle fixture that ate up the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 house at this time! It has a brand new mid century type walnut self-importance on the left as an alternative of the precise to permit for extra smart entry and exit into the stroll in bathe. New lighting, mirror, storage, and tile give the house a a lot more energizing look!

Transferring the self-importance to the left was important to me, it permits one individual to brush their enamel if one other is within the bathe. Earlier than the tap was immediately in entrance of the bathe door which made completely no sense, and there was loads of wasted house on this toilet earlier than.

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

We misplaced countertop house however I created extra horizontal surfaces with a steel 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, similar for the white bathroom paper holder subsequent to the bathroom.

The brand new ground and backsplash is an excellent reasonably priced 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 in opposition to splashing water.

The lavatory 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 offers 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’ll exchange it however perhaps not since it really works completely fantastic and as everyone knows, new bathe doorways may be pricey.

There are 6 further inches of house between the bathe and the shelf since eradicating the outdated self-importance and tap. A bit extra room to maneuver round when exiting the bathe makes a giant distinction!

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

We put in a brand new consolation peak bathroom (not proven) within the 3×4’ bathroom nook to the precise and above it I’m hanging an IKEA tall Godmorgon toilet self-importance cupboard for extra storage. General I’m very happy with how the house turned out and it’s much more nice to bathe and prep in right here than it was a yr in the past!
