This is the Bathroom Remodel That Never Ends

Yes, it goes on and on my friends. Some people, started renovating it, not knowing how hard it was, and they’ll continue renovating it forever just because. This is the bathroom model that never ends.

Yes, yes indeed it is. Did you think I was going to go into another verse there when you saw “yes” again? He, he. The things I do to entertain myself – anywhooo… Between the tile, the sink, the insulation, the backerboard (etc, etc) we are feeling like this guy could be done any day now. But then, we wake up, and we still have a dusty, unfinished, messy bathroom. Oye. Atleast it’s not our only one (bathroom), right? Been there, done that, and it ain’t pretty. Here’s a picture of our dust saturated table – over it! I was like dusting on the hour.

Messy house!

Last week brought lots of progress in this little room though, so I thought I’d share some updated photographs so y’all can see what awesome work the hubby has been doing. Here is a before picture of the floor. I was pretty nervous I was going to hate the grout (it was so dark before it dried completely) but I am totally in love with it. I think the gray works better than white for the floor. Easier to keep clean and it ties it the tile color better in my opinion.

We decided to cheat a bit on the floor install šŸ˜‰ Anything to avoid an extra cut! Where you see all the gaps, we will be adding quarter round. Hubby’s idea. By this point in the process I was too tired to even resist. Rare, very rare. I said, as long as it doesn’t look janky – go for it. Quarter round for the win. The bottom portion of the photo is the tub, and that will have quarter round as well. That’s where the cheating part comes in. šŸ˜‰ Jay’s justification (which I agree with) is that the tile would have been very difficult to cut, and may hadĀ inconsistenciesĀ we had to cover up anyway (with caulk, or trim), this way, we were able to avoid making any cuts, and to still get the sameĀ aestheticĀ result. Boo to the ya.

From the doorway, things are looking much more bright, airy and open. Notice anything different from this view? The sink is in! For the first few days, this sink was like looking really big. Really, really big. I think we got used to not have anythingĀ in the bathroom so this addition felt really intrusive. But … we needed a sink. AsĀ spacious as the room felt without it, it’s not very practical to ditch it all together. After a few days, I’veĀ cautiouslyĀ befriended the sink and I’ve decided it’ll do. That’ll do pig, that’ll do.Ā Ā Plus I like having a close andĀ convenientĀ place to suds my teeth and face, so that puts the sink up a few pegs on my list as well.

We debated back and forth on the sink we wanted, and eventually, we pulled out the big guns and went with this Porcher pedestal sink. Ultimately, although a smaller sink is nice for flow in the room, we opted to add 2 inches in the name of storage on the sink basin and general functionality. My poor husband had to squat down a few feet to use the last sink. Good for your buns and thighs, not so good in the function category.

Plus, I felt paying $70 bucks more for a sink you actually loved, and one that function better, was just a better investment for us in the long term. So, we shelled out some extra simolians and called it a day. Look how lurverly it looks up close. Tres chic.

Still to do before we call this room good and D.O.N.E.

  • Paint window trim (again)
  • Paint and install the quarter round
  • Purchase and install the lighting
  • Purchase and install the faucet

Almost there!
