Bathroom Remodel REVEAL! ~ Lindsey Does

Hello loves. It’s always ultra exciting to finally get to reveal a finished project to you, the culmination of months (sometimes a year+) of work. It’s pretty much the day that every designer lives for.

So I designed all the windows and doors (except one window) to fit around the five plate glass sheets that were originally part of a display cabinet in the local DIY store. The glass for the main window, looking out from the home DIY workshop bench, was one half of a double glazed window which a builder salvaged for me when we had our living room replaced with French Doors; the other half of the double glazed window was stored and later used as a window in the side of a small potting shed.

This is the only photo I have of the toilet area of the bath. I added this plate rack, painted Heirloom white and put white towels in it. I am happy with the several shades of white and cream used to achieve a warmer feel in the entire bathroom. I think using too much stark white would have made this a chilly place to be! And see that toilet there? Well, I sure hope this one never fails us!

Shelving is important for creating space. You can place shelves over the toilet, under the sink or next to the shower, depending on the exact dimensions of your bathroom. Another possibility for shelving is a medicine cabinet. A medicine cabinet can fill many purposes. We will go into some of the other functions of a medicine cabinet shortly. Its shallow shelving, however, is great for smaller items like medications, deodorant and cosmetics.

Because the time and cost of installing a new bathtub can be prohibitive, most homeowners typically replace this bathroom feature only during larger bathroom remodels. However, changing the look of a bathtub by changing a few key features can dramatically alter its appearance. For instance, adding a new tile bathtub surround or adding new fixtures will cost much less than completely replacing the entire unit. Refinishing an existing bathtub can achieve the look of a brand-new tub and will consume much less time and money than replacing one.
