There are 3 full bathrooms in this house – the one that you’re going to see in this post is pretty important as it adjoins two of the bedrooms (a.k.a. jack ‘n jill bath) and also serves as the guest bathroom for the house.
Here’s how the jack ‘n jill bathroom turned out after we spiffed it up with a smorgasbord of travertine and a fancy chevron patterned tile floor:
And here’s how the jack ‘n jill bathroom used to look:
Ah, a 1970s classic. Even though the existing tile was in great shape, it was avocado green and therefore had to go. The wallpaper, counter top, sliding shower door and existing fixtures also got the boot. In their place came crisp white subway tile, mexican noce travertine, accents in a glass and marble mosaic tile, and new fixtures including a dual flush toilet. We also decided to have the demo guys remove the doorway/wall that separated the vanity from the shower/toilet area to get rid of that choppy feeling.
And now it’s time for the gratuitous “after” shots. :)
( Recognize this tile? That’s right, it’s extra tile left over from the glass and marble backsplash we did at the first flip! )
( These built-ins were originally a cabinet with doors, etc. – but it was accidentally torn out during demo. Whoops! When it was re-built, we decided that open shelving was the way to go – I envision lots of baskets and rolled towels. )
( My next house will have a chevron patterned tile floor like this one – it makes me swoon every time I see it!! Three cheers for our tile guy, he did a fab job. )
That’s all, folks! Did this before and after live up to your expectations?
