our guest bathroom : the reveal

so excited to share the finished bathroom with you! if you forget what the room looked like before, here’s the refresher.  we tore everything out and started from scratch, but i still thought it was really important to do everything as affordably as possible — so i made a lot of design decisions that were really inexpensive.

the design of the room is super simple but it’s warm and bright — i also think it’ll stay in style for a long time since i went minimal with every decision.

we were on a super time crunch with this reno, i wanted to delay it until after my baby shower since it was at the house, and be done by june for the last few weeks of my pregnancy. i honestly don’t recommend renovations during your third trimester, but you gotta do what you gotta do. i’m just glad it’s done.

as i said in the design plan post, i wanted to spend as little on tile as possible — and did! i went with standard sized 3×6 white subway tile and made it a little more modern with this vertical stack bond pattern. i reaaally loved the idea of a concrete feel for the floor, but that seemed expensive, annoying for maintenance and like it would take a lot of extra time for pouring and stuff — so i was stoked to find these floor tiles that were so inexpensive and looked and felt very concrete-y.

for the grout, we went with the same white color we did in the kitchen (snow white) and for the floor we went with delorean gray. i briefly considered going with a little bit darker of a grout, but when it came time to building the niche and i realized how much i hate bullnose tiles and wanted to just keep everything right angled, i thought the light grout would be the best. so happy with how it came out.

we went with an inexpensive toilet, which works really well so far, and then got ourselves a wider, slow closing toilet seat. that was a VERY good decision because those janky toilet seats feel so bad — i love the one we got. our doody situation is TIIIIGHT.

we went with an ikea vanity + sink combo, we tried finding alternatives but there is just nothing close in quality and price — and i really like it. the drawers are big and sturdy and close softly. we used delta faucets instead, which are motion-sensored and it feels sooooo fancy. like our house is a movie theatre.

we kept the light fixtures i had swapped out as a cheap temporary fix when we moved in, i’d be up for getting something nicer someday, but these are simple and with these chrome tip light bulbs i really am happy with the look. also the lighting in the evening is super romantic and warm.

i called about 15 different local glass stores and asked them to quote me for a 40″ round mirror cut, most of them said around $250-$300, until one place said $140. the room isn’t huge, but the big mirror makes the biggest difference and it feels so much bigger and brighter.

when i saw this tub, i fell in love immediately. it’s deeper than standard sized, which is better for my 6’2″ husband and the apron is so flat and modern and dope looking. i had A LOT of trouble finding tubs with a flat apron!

i went with brushed stainless fixtures and they look really classic and clean. (also a hot tip : if you have fingerprints, use a paper towel with a little baby oil and they look sparkling clean) i initially wanted to do matte black, but instead just mixed in some black accessories and it looks really nice. we live in the valley and i’ve heard that our hard mineral-y water could slowly ruin black fixtures, so i’m a little paranoid (but still might want to use them for the next bathroom). and we got a hand shower! so excited about this, it’ll make bathing the baby so much easier and cuter.
