Our Bathroom Remodel

We recently finished our primary bathroom remodel.  A project that I am so excited to share with you! This project has been a long time coming and I am so glad we were able to finally get this project started and finished! I had been dreaming up this space for some quite some time now. I wanted a timeless space with a spa like feel. A retreat stocked with plush bath towels, a luxurious shower head, ample storage, and plenty of natural light. A place where I could relax, refresh, and reset in both a peaceful and beautiful way.

Things To Keep In Mind

When remodeling an older home it’s important to keep in mind that you may run into surprises along the way. That was the case here. When our contractor got started he ran into a few structural issues that put us a little behind schedule.  Our floor was unleveled and we had to add in more support for our heavy tile and bathtub. After 2 1/2 weeks of structural work we were able to jump into the fun parts of the remodel. Our contractor did take the whole room down to the studs allowing us to add in more insulation and we came up with a new floor plan that made so much more sense for us!

Fun Finishes

I had always wanted to use Quadrille’s climbing hydrangea wallpaper and found this to be the perfect opportunity to do so! This striking blue and white hydrangea pattern is both timeless and energizing. We had the main space of the bathroom papered in this blue and white traditional paper and then accented with finishes from Shades of Light. I love mixing design elements for interest so I chose these timeless polished nickel sconces and these beautiful cane detailed mirrors.  I also feel like they give the bathroom a classic feel with a coastal inspired touch.

We kept it clean and crisp with a white vanity and quartz counter top and selected these polished nickel faucets.  Our contractor color matched all of our trim and crown moulding to match the vanity to keep things cohesive. I love how this turned out!

I really wanted a wow factor over the bathtub. I love when you walk into a space a see a statement light. Therefore, I selected this beautiful handmade beaded Lily Chandelier from Ro Sham Beaux. It adds in a little fun to a very classic space and the blue glass beads are just stunning.  I love the hemp wrapping for added texture and how the light highlights the beautiful bathing space.

Floor and Shower Tile

We had hardwoods in the bathroom originally. They were getting destroyed from all of the moisture and had water damage. We removed these completely which allowed us to add in radiant heat underneath the tile. I highly recommend doing this! The heat coming through these tiles feels so good first thing in the morning when I am getting ready for the day. I wanted a classic and clean look on the floor so I partnered with Tiles Direct and selected their velvet white matte porcelain tile in 12×24 for the bathroom floor.

I chose the white penny rounds for our shower floor and the velvet white matte porcelain in 4×12 for the shower walls. We used white grout and added crown moulding to the top of the tile for a finished look.  I selected polished nickel shower heads and we added a rain head to the center of the shower.


Cabinet hardware can really make or break a space.  It seems like such a minor detail but it really will set the tone of your space and give it some personality.  I partnered with Emtek to put the perfect finishing touches on our cabinetry and doors. I selected the 6″ freestone pulls in polished nickel for all of our drawers in the bathroom and our closet. I love how they look on the cabinetry.

I am so happy to have this project completed and look forward to enjoying this beautiful space on a daily basis. To see more of our home you can head here.
