Baths and Flooring



A few people asked  about the flooring and bathroom remodel so...here it is!

Photos of the remodel in a before and after series of photos.  I posted about the kitchen changes HERE.  

Before: In the upstairs bathroom we had wallpaper, a fat sink sitting atop the vanity & a clunky light fixture.  Also there was carpet in the upstairs bedroom which ran into the bathroom.


After 
Walls painted Silverpointe, pretty new light fixture and mirror, gray vanity  and a light colored granite countertop. The carpet was removed and vinyl plank was put in place.

Before: The downstairs bathroom had wallpaper, a clunky light same as upstairs and a fat sink.  The linoleum floors were 20 years old.


After: New vanity in antique white, granite countertop, replaced the light fixture with something from this century, mirror and wallpaper removed.  The paint is called Shittake and I love it. The linoleum was ripped up and the same vinyl plank was used.


Before: The downstairs bath was a prefab plastic. Impossible to clean. It is/was forty years old just as the rest of the house.


After: Subway tile, new shower bar and fixtures. Loki gets to use it first for his bath :-)


Before: back upstairs to see the carpet.  It was so worn out.  


After: The vinyl plank makes a huge difference. It's much easier to keep clean. Wish we'd done this years ago.


We did purchase a rug so there's no echo and to keep Loki from sliding across the floor when chasing toys.  



The only other update we have been toying with is a screened porch but I think that will have to wait.  A pool would be absolutely amazing as I could use the exercise and it's SO hot here.....but that's out of the question.  For now I am very happy and thankful we were able to get all this done in 6 weeks.

  1. You are killing it with the renovations! Everything looks absolutely gorgeous! I love the color of the vanity in that first bathroom especially and the subway tile is gorgeous. When we lived in Memphis the floors in our apartment were concrete (old factory that had been revamped into this urban-y loft situation) and I can't count the number of times the cat skidded into the wall. He was very pleased to be back on carpet! Loki looks quite pleased with the rug.

    1. Thank you, Katherine. Sometimes I think we shouldn’t have done it all at once but now, glad we did. The only rooms not painted now are the bedrooms & the living room. Oh yes, Loki loves the rug!

  2. That all looks so amazing!!! We just got vinyl planks in a tiny bathroom and really love it. I love that grey vanity a lot, too.

  3. That looks fabulous... so much lighter and brighter! We need to get a rug for our bedroom to keep down the echo.

    1. JoAnn, I thought I might miss carpet but I don’t, at all. This is easier to keep clean.

  4. What a stunning remodel you have done. You are very lucky that it went so quickly. Loki's all-tile bath is really luxurious-looking. I hope you enjoy it a lot.

    1. Mae, Loki just had a bath in his new tub. I don’t think he was as impressed with the changes 😀
