Hi! I am super excited to share this post with you, it's been a long time coming! We've been living in our home in the Kansas City area for a little over 3 years and finally finished a room I've been wanting to redo for a long time- our guest bathroom! The final piece was the green bathroom vanity, and now I can show you it. Having a baby during a pandemic might have slowed us down a smidge. Ha!
Our house was built in the early 2000's and while we love the traditional feel of it, there were/are some features we wanted to switch out. This room started out pretty neutral but had the tell-tale signature shell sinks of the 90's and early 2000's. My goal with this home is to blend our personal style/taste with the traditional features we were drawn to. In each room we redo or update I'm using comparable fixtures and mixing metal fixtures to give a bit of cohesion overall.
In order to keep the project somewhat budget friendly we kept the main fixtures/pieces and did primarily a cosmetic upgrade. We kept the built-in tub and shower, the toilet and the vanity. Here's the before and after!
The first thing we did was switch the flooring for tile. We actually used this tile in our laundry room and will use it in our basement bathroom too. It's a very simple and practical tile, but it's fairly neutral which was our priority in these smaller rooms. The photo below shows the beautiful reality of a renovation... haha.
Next, we hired a granite company to switch out the countertop and sinks with a remnant slab of quartz for the countertop. One thing I really love about this bathroom is that even though it's a small space and a guest bathroom it has a double vanity.
After the sinks were in we had our contractor take down the mirror, add shiplap and new light fixtures. I found these globe light fixtures at Home Depot that match our son's nursery lighting and they are such a good value. The installation can be vertical or horizontal. I've had multiple friends buy them even.
To cut costs I painted the room during nap times and installed the mirrors myself! We picked Oxford White for this room, we had used it in my son's nursery and loved it. The black mirrors are from Target. I've had a lot of luck finding dupes there for higher end mirrors. I love the black framed mirrors with the green bathroom vanity, I feel like it adds a bit of character and depth to the room.
My favorite part of the bathroom is the green bathroom vanity. We went back and forth on colors but landed on Magnolia Locally Grown. We did use Sherwin Williams Emerald paint, our painter was adamant that was the best quality option for cabinets.
Thanks for letting me share out guest bathroom update with you! We're all ready to host for the holidays now. Anyone else put a Christmas tree in every room?
