I’m excited to share the after photos of our hall bathroom remodel today! This project was one of our big goals for 2021 and I’m thrilled to have it all wrapped up! If you’re just tuning in, you can see before photos and plans for the space here and progress posts here, here, and here. We kept the layout in here exactly the same as it was but replaced all the fixtures and tile, installed a new vanity, and added wallpaper. The finished product is so much lighter and brighter and it makes me so happy to see this space right when we walk up the stairs and to bathe our two boys in here each night!
It’s amazing how much brighter the bathroom feels without all the beige and mauve tile everywhere! I’m a big fan of keeping it simple when it comes to tile — we used the same white subway tile when we renovated our kitchen and I love it because it’s classic, practical, and super affordable. The subway tile runs to the ceiling in the shower and then three feet up the wall in the rest of the bathroom with a chair rail tile and this wallpaper above. I’ll share and link lots more details throughout the post!
Our contractor built the new vanity for the space in the same cabinetry style we used in our kitchen and our closet. It’s so nice to have drawers in here instead of just cabinets! The countertop is a Hanstone quartz in Royale Blanc ordered locally through Ideal Tile and the sinks and faucets are Kohler ordered locally through Plimpton & Hills. For a full bathroom (compared to our powder room, for instance) I found it helpful to order through a local showroom as there were various plumbing parts that I wouldn’t have known to source online myself. I’ve linked what I could find online at the end of the post if you’re more of a DIY-er! The mirrors were a budget-friendly Overstock find — I love the shape!
The ceiling fixture and double sconce are both Visual Comfort — their fixtures are stunning in person and very much worth the splurge in my opinion! The semi-flush lantern is the first thing you see as you climb the stairs and it makes me happy every time I see it. I swapped out the plain shades on the sconce for scalloped raffia shades that add a playful touch to a space that will primarily be used by our little ones. I ordered the shades from this Etsy shop but they appear to be out of stock at the moment — I’ll update this post if I see them restocked at any point!
If you’re shopping for new bath towels, Weezie is the best of the best. These are the piped edge bath towels and hand towels with a matching French blue monogram and the kids’ hooded towels with light blue piping and the boys’ names in French blue script. They’re the fluffiest towels we’ve ever owned and hold up beautifully in the wash — highly recommend!
I played around with a few ideas on artwork for this bathroom and decided to keep it pretty simple since the wallpaper makes a pretty big statement on its own. I had framed these two needlepoint canvases I stitched over the course of quarantine and thought the mat color was perfect with the wallpaper. Meant to be! You can find the two canvases here and here.
I love having this linen closet in the bathroom to store extra bedding, towels, and “backstock” toiletries. We had new doors made to match the style of the vanity and used these polished nickel ball knobs on both. One day I will get the inside of this closet perfectly organized and blog-worthy but for now I’m just thrilled it’s no longer under construction!
I ordered custom sized woven shades for a few rooms in our house and found the same brand that Pottery Barn carries at a lower price through Home Depot. We found a swatch book at our local store on one of our many weekend trips there and went with the inside mount in “Antigua Tiki” if anyone’s searching for something similar!
You can see a bit of the penny tile on the floor here — I had a few people ask about grout colors and finally have an answer for you! The subway tile on the walls is grouted in Mapei avalanche (bright white) and the penny tile on the floor is grouted in Mapei frost (one shade darker/more gray than white). I think that’s just about everything but if there’s anything I missed, feel free to ask in the comments! Thanks for tuning in! 🙂
