Not every bathroom makeover is made equal. Sometimes a budget bathroom update is the perfect amount of modernizing while keeping the price tag down…
When we moved into this house, we knew that the two bathrooms that connected Gwen and Luca’s room were going to be one of our last priorities when it came to updates.
They weren’t our aesthetic, but they weren’t inherently bad either. They were functional, but the tile was definitely outdated and dark.
One thing that absolutely had to be addressed were the old water fixtures. They were rickety and barely connected.
Aside from the aesthetics of the before space, we were in major need of an upgrade when it came to faucets and fixtures.
We also wanted to make a bigger statement with the shower curtain by using a matte black pressure mount curtain rod near the ceiling with an oversized shower curtain.
It makes the room feel much bigger than a lower mounted curtain.
How to Upgrade Old Cabinets
We also saved quite a lot of money by simply painting the existing cabinetry and updating the handles to match the Peerless faucets.
To make everything feel clean and fresh, we sprayed both the outside and inside of the cabinets with oil-based paint for a full refresh.
Updating the Bathroom Floors
We also kept the original porcelain tub that was in good shape and updated the tile surround with a classic white oyster ceramic tile and sage green floor tile to mimic our laundry room down the hall.
Once we added styling accents here and there, it really helped update the original granite countertops that weren’t my favorite at first.
What do you think of the overall before and after?!
