Before and After My Guest Bathroom Remodel
The builder grade materials and look of my early 2000's guest bathrom was in need of an update. Dated tile, linoleum flooring, tile countertops and polished brass and chorme fixtures need a noew look. I wanted to keep the cost of the renovation down so I reused the tub, kept the same valve inside the wall and reused my toilet.

Before Bathroom Flooring
I am not a fan of linoleum flooriing. Once I removed the vanity and toilet, it was very easy to remove with a heat gun and scraper. I had some left over tile from kitchen renovation (Check it out here). I used a glass tile accent in my frist grout line for some personalization.
The builder grade vanity and tile countertop really dated the bathroom. By purchasing a new Virtu USA vanity, I was able to both update the look of vanity, but save money because the marble top and undermount sink came with the vanity cabinet. I matched the look with the Kohler Bancroft widespread faucet in polished nickel. The vanity helped to greatly change the look of the bathroom.
I really didn't like the shower tile. Ever since I bought my home, I knew I wanted to change out the tile and frosted shower door. By carefully removing the tile and not damaging the cement underneath, I was able to save a significant amount of money, materials and time. I went with a classic white 3 by 6 subway tile, but wanted to personalize the look a little. I chose to tie in the glass tile from the floor into the shower, which also ties with the paint color nicely.
