Funds Toilet Refresh | Centsational Model

4 min read

One of many tasks I completed throughout my keep in Florida was the ultimate touches on this small toilet refresh. After we purchased this home we talked about extending this toilet into the rear yard to make it bigger since it’s the major toilet, however determined as a substitute to easily give it an replace so it felt extra trendy. (We determined in opposition to growth since this isn’t our eternally dwelling once we finally make the complete time soar to Florida subsequent 12 months.)

I didn’t wish to spend a ton of cash giving it an replace so this toilet refresh was accomplished on a finances. I shopped for inexpensive supplies to problem myself. The biggest bills have been labor, we wanted to take away a hideous florescent gentle and set up new wires for a sconce above the mirror and in addition a vent to the surface for moisture/odor. We additionally needed to pay for a plumber to return and transfer the vainness pipes from the precise to the left for higher circulate. The labor prices have been a number of hundred {dollars}, however so value it.

Right here’s the house I began with. Discover the outdated laminate cupboard, the pink formica countertop (wow!), the dated and dingy grey porcelain flooring, and the horrific florescent gentle fixture that ate up the ceiling. I modified all of that.

Right here is the house right now! It has a brand new mid century type walnut vainness on the left as a substitute of the precise to permit for extra smart entry and exit into the stroll in bathe. New lighting, mirror, storage, and tile give the house a a lot brisker look!

Shifting the vainness to the left was important to me, it permits one particular person to brush their tooth if one other is within the bathe. Earlier than the tap was immediately in entrance of the bathe door which made completely no sense, and there was numerous wasted house on this toilet earlier than.

The brand new vainness is 6” extra shallow than the earlier countertop, permitting for additional house to maneuver round. I really like the legs, it permits for simple sweeping and mopping beneath.

We misplaced countertop house however I created extra horizontal surfaces with a metallic and wooden storage shelf and a bit glass shelf above it. Above the bathroom (not proven) I’m including a tall IKEA Godmorgan drugs cupboard for much more storage.

I repurposed the white towel bar, it was completely good so it stayed, similar for the white rest room paper holder subsequent to the bathroom.

The brand new flooring and backsplash is a brilliant reasonably priced white porcelain grid mosaic that we put in on each the ground and wall. It’s easy, traditional, and really cheap. It runs up the wall behind the vainness so as to add safety in opposition to splashing water.

The toilet shelf is from IKEA I merely spray painted it a brushed brass end to coordinate with the golden tones within the mirror and film body. It gives a bit ledge for smaller toiletries and show.

The artwork is my very own sketch that I colorized in a muted pastel desert palette, I’ll be including it to my print store subsequent week.

What didn’t change in any respect was the tile within the bathe. It’s your fundamental 4×4” ubiquitous white tile and it was completely good so it stayed. That grid design I repeated on the ground so that they complement one another. You’ll be able to see a glimpse of the bathe tile on this picture. The bathe door is chrome and finally I’ll exchange it however perhaps not since it really works completely tremendous and as everyone knows, new bathe doorways might be pricey.

There are 6 further inches of house between the bathe and the shelf since eradicating the outdated vainness and tap. A bit extra room to maneuver round when exiting the bathe makes a giant distinction!

The wall shade is White Sand by Benjamin Moore, it’s a pale beige which I’ll undoubtedly use once more, it’s an ideal impartial.

We put in a brand new consolation peak rest room (not proven) within the 3×4’ rest room nook to the precise and above it I’m hanging an IKEA tall Godmorgon toilet vainness cupboard for added storage. General I’m very happy with how the house turned out and it’s way more nice to bathe and prep in right here than it was a 12 months in the past!
