Guest Bathroom Renovation Reveal
Remember when I asked you to settle a disagreement between Mr. Tropical and I about the bathroom renovation tile grout a while ago?
A majority of you guys voted for grey grout and I was so happy that most of you guys agreed with me instead of Mr. Tropical. 😉 HOWEVER, we settled the disagreement and went with white grout. *gasp* I am so ecstatic that I decided to go with Mr. Tropical’s choice. I will explain why I decided to go with the white grout below.
Here is the link if you missed the original post about doing the bathroom renovation and would like to see the before pictures.
Well, we are finally done with the guest bathroom renovation! Well, not 100% completed because we will need to replace the sink vanity and the flooring, but we are satisfied with the bathroom for now!
***FYI, Mr. Tropical and I have no previous renovation experiences so this is our first time renovating a bathroom. I like to consider us handy, but there were a bunch of rookie mistakes here and there as we renovated the bathroom. It was a wonderful experience for us to do as a family.
Anyways, I will stop talking and show you the pictures!
We added 2×4 studs to make two niches on the right side to store our shampoo/conditioner, soap, and Coral’s toys.
The cement boards went up and Mr. Tropical got started with putting the subway tiles up.
There were a little bit of imperfections between the subway tiles in the niches, so we went with white grout to make the imperfections unnoticeable.
We caulked between the bathtub and the subway tiles.
Real handmade mirror with mother of pearl shells. It was supposed to be $149.99 but we got it on clearance for $24.99! There was a tiny scratch on the mirror and a couple of missing mother of pearl shells.
I sealed the wine crate a long time ago and installed up there to store the decorations, a pothos plant and extra toilet papers.
We installed the beadboards probably two years ago when we first moved in. I wish we have a tutorial on how to do this for you guys! Don’t worry, we plan to do similar for our dining room/hallway sometime soon!
Plenty of storage in the niches to hold large shampoo/conditioner containers! No toys in there because they are currently IN the bathtub. See the wood ceiling?! GORGEOUS.
I can’t wait until we replace the fluorescent lights in this bathroom, so we will not have any more blurry/dark pictures. OR maybe I need a professional camera. (hint hint, Mr. Tropical) 😉
We will eventually replace the sink vanity. I am thinking a farmhouse cottage style. We want to replace the tile flooring with tile flooring that looks like wood.
I love, love and LOVE the mermaid towel hanger we got from a salvage warehouse. ♥ I am thinking about adding two hooks to either side of the towel hanger to hold more towels. Maybe that would be too much for a small bathroom? Not sure.
What do you think about the guest bathroom renovation?! Please share your honest opinion as we are new to renovating.
