Sugar & Cloth Casa: The Before + After Of Our Guest Bathroom Makeover

Sharing our finished guest bathroom makeover…

The Before + After of Our Guest Bathroom Makeover! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

Just when you guys thought we were finally done with renovations…muahaha!

But for real, we are actually done with the major home construction because that was the only way to avoid me needing to be admitted to a mental health facility if we didn’t get the house finished before baby.

Now we’re finally getting around to finishing up the little details after the big overhauls and it feels so good!

The before and after of our guest bathroom makeover was by far our biggest, small project. This small 6×8 foot space got a major update after gutting the whole thing.

In case you’re wondering why there are some slightly wonky photo angles, that would be because of just how tiny this room is.

Having it upgraded has been such a nice change for having guests over. Which if you’ve had a child, then you know just how many people are stopping by when it comes to visiting the new baby.

If you missed the original design inspiration and before post, you can catch those right here!

I’d say the after photos look almost identical to the original design mockups, don’t you?! And the previous owner’s horrific textiles, yikes. So bad…

We didn’t relocate anything in the bathroom. But the guest bathroom makeover still got a complete overhaul since the previous fixtures were all very worn down and basic.

We even replaced the old tub with a modern porcelain alcove tub so that everything felt equally upgraded.

Guest Bathroom Color Scheme

For those of you who chimed in on our pale pink marble shower curtain debate, I love the way it turned out if the final space!

I stuck to the marble, gold, pale pink, and navy theme when it came to chooses the accents.

I’m so glad we went with the navy hexagon tile floor to mix things up a bit from our master bathroom renovation while still going with a similar overall vibe. 

The fixtures are all still from the Kohler Purist collection for the shower system, sink faucet, towel hooks and hardware that we used in our master bath to keep the brushed gold cohesive.

How To Add More Functional Touches To A Bathroom

We also added an outlet and wall shelf above the toilet to make the space more functional for guests to get ready in since the vanity and sink ledges are so small due to the space constraints.

I HATE going to places that have no outlets or counter/shelf space for sitting toiletries on!

Overall, it’s quite a big change in such a small space, don’t you think?! I love the way the guest bathroom makeover turned out and am SO so happy we got this room renovated before baby girl arrived.

  1. Would love a source for the toilet paper holder. Is that what you use every day or do you have a holder somewhere else? Dealing w this issue right now. Now where to hang a tp holder

    Reply
    • Hi D! The toilet paper holder is an old item from Target. And yes, that holder is the main holder and not just for extra toilet paper. We had the same dilemma with no space to hang so the holder was perfect for grabbing paper for everyday use and holding extra.

  2. I love the tile but the link that takes you to Wayfair doesn’t exist anymore. Do you have the brand name saved for the tile?

  3. I love seeing small bathroom renos! I also like how you combined the blue, gold, pink, and white together. One question I have: Shouldn’t the outlet you added be GFCI since it’s so close to the sink/”splash area”?

    Reply
    • Hi Alaina! Good question. The new outlet shares the same circuit with a GFCI outlet previously in the bathroom so it is safe. XOXO

    • Thanks Angela! There’s a link for it at the bottom of the post, look for “cape cod hexagon blue tiles” :)

  4. Where did you get the toilet? The link in your post is to a different toilet than the one pictured. You did a beautiful job with the room, it looks a lot like what I am planning.

  5. This looks so good, Ashley! Our only bathroom in our house is teeny tiny like this with sink, toilet, tub all right in a row. Definitely pinning this for our renovation plans!
