One Room Challenge | Main Bathroom Makeover | Week 4

Apr 28, 2017

We've had the most progress this week, with contractors in everyday since Monday, the plumbing and electrical will be finished by the end of today!  I don't want to jinx it but so far we've had no surprises and everything is going as planned. In my experience that's normally not the case, so we'll see what next week brings.

As you can see, there's really not a lot to look at in the bathroom at the moment. The biggest change for us is seeing the entire space opened up. It's much bigger than the original layout with room to spare. 


Moving on from the unappealing reno photos, we can now take a look at the final choices for some of the materials and decor. I still have to pick out and purchase the finishing touch details, which I'll be working on over the next little while in preparation for the reveal - just 2 weeks away!

Both the light fixture and vanity have been purchased. I'm still looking for the mirror but I envision one similar to the one above. I wanted to keep the lighting and mirror sleek and contemporary to contrast with the more traditional looking vanity.

The tile pattern will be slightly different than the one above but the tile itself is the same. The tile wall feature is one of my favourite aspects of the bathroom, I can't wait to see it come together. 

We'll be using a french door we have on hand for the barn door closure. I'm going to DIY the stain and frosted windows on the weekend so it will be all ready to hang next week.

Here's the latest on the shiplap...since purchasing the tile I've been debating our initial plan to whitewash the shiplap. I really want the tile accent wall to POP and I'm a little worried that if we whitewash the shiplap it will all blend in together and not at all be the feature I want it to be. So, I've been toying with the idea of either painting all the shiplap grey OR just doing the shiplap on the same wall as the tile in grey. Perhaps something similar to the photos below...


Well, that's it for this weeks' update! I have a busy weekend ahead prepping the shiplap and sourcing the remaining accessories and decor. 

Just a reminder to make time to check out all of the other participants' projects on Linda's blog, Calling It Home.
