Sometimes it doesn’t take a full remodel to give a bathroom a whole new look. Our upstairs bathroom is the perfect example. We were able to update the whole look and feel of the room without doing any heavy construction.
This is what it looked like before:
The room was dark and dated.
We started by painting the whole bathroom light gray. Then we framed the mirror with wood, changed out the cabinet hardware and added fresh accessories.
The old faucets were corroded, cheap, small and had no style at all. Unless you count “bad hotel” as a style… ha!
Aren’t the new faucets GORGEOUS?! I love the pretty curves of the handles. They are made with a spot-resist brushed finish that will help them stay looking great, even when the kids splash around.
The added height of the spout makes washing my face so much more pleasant. The water is so much easier to reach!
We installed the matching Hamden towel ring and toilet paper holder too.
The accessories featured the Press & Mark system, which took all of the guess work out of hanging the fixtures. They have a built-in stamp that you press against the wall and it marks where the holes need to be drilled. Isn’t that the most amazing idea? I was able to hang the hardware in a snap thanks to that handy feature.
The new towel bar looks so sleek and really compliments the faucets. I am very pleased!
If we had an unlimited budget and unlimited time, we would love to get a new vanity, new floor tile and a new tub surround, but because of these smaller changes, we’ll be happy with this bathroom for years to come.
Last but not least, here’s the side-by-side comparison. Isn’t it amazing that such small changes can completely transform a room?
