Hello! One of my 2012 home improvement goals is a partial makeover of my boys' bathroom. The bathroom had a leak and that was really the motivation here. I am trying to keep the renovation very low cost as well. :)
Here are a few BEFORE shots of the bathroom (I know it is no fun to look at "before" shots, so I will make this short!):
This bathroom is set on an interior wall of the house on the second floor. Hence, the lack of window.....what a horrible design, but there is no place for a window to go!
You can see I had decorated the room in a Polynesian theme. Prior to that it had been Beatrix Potter- inspired when the boys were little dudes. Now they have as many grooming products as I do (see the mess below!):
I am sure I counted at least 8 bottles of hair gel. What is up with that? And look at their "lovely" display?
Oh to have two teenage boys....
I did love the surfboard shaped area rug and will save it for one of them...
This faucet works perfectly well and I will likely have it moved to our downstairs powder room.
Here is a shot of the flooring removed....plumbing was replaced in the water closet area and the floor needed smoothing and leveling out with a leveling compound.
I decided to replace the flooring with vinyl rather then tile, although I found some beautiful porcelain tiles that look like real wood that I plan on using for our master bath renovation (hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later!).
The vinyl I chose is Home Depot's Allure in Pacific Pine. I did have to order it online since the color I wanted is not one that they usually carry in the store. We will be keeping the vanity, shower tile/tub, and shower door. I hope to frame out the "builder's grade" mirror rather than to replace it.
I will post AFTER pictures soon! :)
