Even the nicest condos generally include outdated, soiled, disappointing loos — particularly if the area was beforehand a rental for years. Dingy bathtubs, cracked flooring, drab colours, you title it.
That was the case for Lauren and Kameron Sears’ visitor lavatory. Fortunately, these lavatory points can often be mounted up with the assistance of a brand new vainness, some recaulking, or refinished tile. The couple did nearly all of that to offer their dated lavatory a complicated, fashionable refresh.
Previous to the improve, Lauren says they hardly ever used the toilet. After they purchased the condominium, many of the rooms have been in “poor situation.” The visitor lavatory particularly screamed outdated between its brown tile and builder-grade cupboards.
Lauren and Kameron determined to make the vainness fronts the showstopper and centered the design round them. They determined to get just a little dangerous and painted the partitions and ceiling blue to match the vainness and provides the phantasm that the prevailing tile didn’t purposefully proceed as much as the ceiling, Lauren says. The white paint in the course of the wall “actually helps you overlook the place the bathe tile begins and stops.”
Putting a curtain or bathe rod greater than the place the tile stops is a brilliant manner so as to add dimension to any room, they usually took benefit of that.
They threw in a plant and a few wooden components, and the area was full. From demo to completion, the venture took 4 weeks and rang in at round $2,500. Lauren says the priciest half was professionally refinishing the bathtub and tile, which got here in at $850.
However be warned: Lauren says as first-timers laying ground tile, mosaic tile requires time, preciseness, and persistence.
“We had by no means reworked a rest room earlier than however with plenty of analysis and assist from numerous web sites, we tackled one factor at a time, to finish the venture with an final result we’re tremendous happy with,” Lauren says.
