we have (almost) finally sourced everything for our little bathroom renovation we’ve been eagerly planning since we finished our flooring (you can see some before photos HERE). i’ve been trying to really take my time on making these big decisions + really thinking them through. our main floor bath has been floor-less since I pulled the existing pink carpet up (yuck). it was a must do. carpet in baths only equal one thing, grossness.
with our little bath reno comes a budget. home renos are expensive and we are trying to do them as penny savvy as possible. we have kept most of the things that would have been crazy expensive to replace in bath and are doing all of the work ourselves to cut cost. I love saving money on things + being able to make inexpensive things look expensive. we have so many projects to tackle in this house and I’m trying to stretch our dollars as far as I can! here’s a little breakdown of what we’ve got planned for the space –
tub – keep existing tub + paint with a ceramic tub painting kit.
toilet – replace. surprisingly you can purchases toilets for a pretty cheap price.
tile – tilebar penny tile on floor, subway tile on walls.
countertops – after pricing countertops that were insanely expensive ($800+) we decided to go with a wood countertop in the bath. sounds crazy, but jacob’s got a pretty strategic plan to waterlox it. the entire countertops will cost us under $30. you can’t beat that!
vessel sink – I was able to find a vessel sink and modern faucet on amazon for under $100. amazon is my go to these days. if you are doing some home renos, I highly recommend that you shop there!
hardware – cabinet knobs, new towel rack.
lighting – the current light doesn’t put off much lighting so we will be updating it!
and some fun odds and ends! plants, rug, basket, towels, you know the fun stuff!
so whatcha think?! I’m excited to get started!
