A Mini Bathroom Makeover in Under a Week

When we purchased this home just over two years ago, we knew all three bathrooms were in desperate need of a major face lift. We successfully transformed the first two, the guest bathroom and the main one upstairs but left our master bedroom one for the last as we knew we could live with it the way it was for a while. Well the time was up and we are so happy to be finally saying goodbye to the last remaining seashell inspired sink in this place.


We renovated this bathroom all by ourselves again. At one point we thought about demolishing some of the walls from our walk-in closet to add an additional tub or shower but we both agreed that this is not our forever home. Instead we saved some of the finances from bathroom expansion for other projects such as the laundry room makeover I am designing up for this winter.


The great thing about this bathroom makeover is nothing needed to be special ordered. For renovation time schedules that is great news! The sizes matched perfectly with what we were working with already so we were able to purchase a floating vanity from Ikea Canada and a low-flush option toilet from our local hardware store. Matt had to install some new plumbing and ensure the electrical was up to code.


We also got really lucky with our floor tile selection. We had enough leftover of the white marble tile we installed in our previous shower renovation that we were able to use them up on the floors. Not only did that saves us a few hundred bucks but it also gives the two bathrooms upstairs a consistent flow.


We patched the walls and painted them the same grey as the rest of our home. Consistency in colours is key when you know you will be someday selling this place. Matt also installed new thick casings around the door and floors. My favourite part of this mini bathroom renovation is the piece of art we installed. The gold foil coral reef canvas gives the bathroom this calming effect. Perfect for getting ready in the mornings! The hardest part was most definitely finding a mirror that we loved & was the right fit for the space. Most of the mirrors I brought home were either too small or way too big for the space. We ended up finding the perfect one from Bouclair.


I am still debating about adding a couple white floating shelves above the tiolet to display some bathroom items in various glass jar sizes. The hardest part of this mini bathroom renovation was taking definitely taking pictures of the space. For now we are happy with the end results and are looking forward to the upcoming holiday season.
