This IS IT!!!! The first big bathroom reveal!!
As you may know, we've been in the process of renovating 2 (yes 2) of our bathrooms over the past 5 months. It was a long process (and by long, I mean LOOOOONNNGGGG) and a lot of blood, sweat and tears were put into these renovations.
Renovating was one of the biggest challenges we've had to face in the world of homeownership. It takes a lot out of you, and in the end I am happy to say that things have turned out just that way we hoped they would :)
We moved into this house with the idea that we would renovate these bathrooms- we just had no idea it would take as long as it did!
This reveal is for the first bathroom we started- the Main Bath (or "Kids Bath", as I usually refer to it as).
Here it how it began:
We replaced everything. Tub, toilet, vanity, countertop, sink, fixtures, lights, floors, walls (thankfully only 1!) and hardware.
The tub was replaced with a white square tub which we sourced from Home Depot. We wanted something that was square in shape for a reasonable price. We put white 3x8 subway tiles on the wall in the shower and a band of grey mosaic tile throughout the shower.
The toliet, we managed to get on sale (for a great deal!) at the Grand Opening of the first Lowes store in our city for under $100.00. We actually got the store at 7:00am when it opened and managed to get 4 toliets in our cart, as people were grabbing them left, right and centre! When you replace a toilet with a low-flush toilet in our city, you are offered a rebate from the city, so we managed to spend less than $90 on each toilet.
The countertop is its own story. We actually went through 3 countertops to get the one we have. The first company we went with cut the first 2 tops wrong...horribly wrong. However, Graniteworx came to our rescue and cut us a beautiful quartz top for a great deal and installed it beautifully. We love the quartz- easy to clean, great for a bathroom and looks awesome.
The undermount sink was done by Graniteworx as well. We love the shape and its definitely a good quality sink that we know will last us while. The sink we had to replace was steel and had actually rusted out, so this was a mandatory change.
The faucet and shower fixtures were by Lowes and Rona and we love how they look. We got the sink tap on sale for a good price, and I love that its water efficient.
We installed potlights in the ceiling, ceramic tiles on the floors, replaced a wall that needed fixing and new hardware on the doors.
Here is our new tub:
New countertop and vanity:
We're really happy with how it all came together :)
