You guys! I’ve been SO thrilled to read your amazing comments about our flip so far – you totally rock, and thank you so much for being a part of our crazy adventures!
The bathrooms in this home were functional but dated as all get out.
The master bathroom in particular was very sad. It was awesome that the master bedroom actually had an attached bath, but it didn’t have a lot else going for it. I guess peach and yellow could be a nice combination under some circumstances but in this case…………..mmm, no.
So we started from scratch, trading out the old, dated finishes for shiny new ones. And beware – this bathroom is impossible to photograph because of its size so you’re pretty much only going to see one angle. :)
The existing shower just didn’t cut it, in terms of finish and function – it was yellow and impossibly tiny.
So we doubled the size of the shower by stealing an entire linen closet that was accessed in the hallway, and then made it feel even bigger by adding a frameless glass surround.
We saved costs by keeping every fixture in its original location, except for the shower valve and drain (we had to scoot those back since we added extra space from the linen closet).
I think my favorite thing about the entire bathroom is the enormous mirror – it gives almost as much reflection area as a sheet mirror would, but it’s so much prettier with a floating wood frame surrounding beveled glass. It arrived the morning we put the flip on the market and I think it makes all the difference in finishing off this bathroom right.
The herringbone carrera marble tile runs across the floor of the entire space and was a worthwhile splurge, I think.
Onto the guest bathroom! It was a great size, but it still needed some help.
We gained extra vanity space by removing a closet in the hallway, and centered the sink within the vanity. All of the other changes were just cosmetic!
I think the streamlined hardware and fixtures help keep this bathroom from leaning in an entirely traditional direction.
My husband is kind of obsessed with the pinwheel marble tile on the floor – I think he pets it when I’m not looking. :)
How do you think the bathrooms turned out?
