I’m excited to say that our downstairs remodel is about 95% done, all that needs to be done is a little more decorating and I can deal with that because that’s the fun part!
The process was long and messy but totally worth it. We love having family over and it’s so nice that they basically get a whole floor all to themselves!
One of the most important rooms to finish was the downstairs bathroom next to the guest room.
Here is what it looked like when we moved in.
Luckily the framing was done and most of the electrical and plumbing was started making it easier for our awesome go to contractor. (Yea, we’re not DIY’ers!)
We kept the flooring the same in the bathroom as the rest of the basement, a vinyl wood floor. I like a consistent look when it comes to flooring and since it’s vinyl it’s a great choice for the bathroom. The lighting and cabinets are a bit modern but I like the clean lines and I warmed the space up with some traditional decorative touches. Both items were specially ordered from Menards. And we additionally had to call specialist in drain unclogging Oakland County.
Here is the after!
I opted not to use a bath mat or bath rug for the space and just a regular rug, when designing spaces remember to use non-traditional items. I think a normal rug warms the space up. The rug is from Home Goods. The shower curtain is from Target, I almost always use touches of black in my rooms, I think it anchors the space. The large print is from World Market and the artwork above the toilet was painted by me.
I splurged on royal velvet towels because I think its nice to make your guest feel welcomed! The mirror is from Target, the bird from Silver in the City, a great store in Indianapolis, the plate, ZGallerie and the painting is another creation I did with my daughter. (It’s paint by number!) If you throw artwork in a frame it really takes it to the next level!
The shower is a very large walk in. I went for my good ol’ standby…subway tile. It brightens the space so the shower doesn’t feel like a cave, its clean, fresh, timeless and very affordable.
The shower head was installed in the ceiling instead of the wall! Another tip with any bathroom remodel, invest in a really good ceiling fan, one that is quiet and one that really gets rid of the damp air, you worked hard and spent alot of money on your space, don’t skimp on the fan!
Once again another look!
