We’re getting ready to kick off our first house project of 2021 later this week (you can see what else we’re planning to tackle in this post) and believe me when I say it can only get better from here! This upstairs hall bathroom is beyond dated and we really haven’t touched it since we moved in, but with our second baby on the way, I’m eager to bring this space up to date and have a separate kids’ bathroom where we can bathe both boys together. Here are the before pictures and my design plan for the space!
The existing layout actually works quite well and it keeps costs lower when you replace fixtures where they are vs. totally reconfiguring the space, so we’re sticking with the existing layout and just updating all the fixtures and tile. The plan is to replace the glass shower door with a shower rod and curtain (infinitely easier for bathing little ones!) and install white subway tile partially up the wall and wallpaper above that. I’m excited for the space to feel a little less 1980s and more timeless. 🙂 Bye bye, mauve tile, formica countertops, and shiny gold faucets and hello, lots of bright white and polished nickel!
I’m leaning towards two medicine cabinets above the new vanity (which will be custom built to fit in the existing space) for practicality’s sake, but I’m not fully convinced! If you have a kids’ or hall bathroom you love, I’d love to hear what you wound up with. Will post progress updates as we go!
