Reveal!!: Greta’s Toilet Renovation is Completed!

by Editors Staff

Once I seemed again at after we launched our plans to renovate each the laundry room and Greta’s toilet, I spotted that was 7 months in the past! I can’t imagine how a lot time has handed! This toilet and the still-unfinished laundry room (extra on that one other day) really impressed the “10 Issues That Can Derail a Residence Renovation” submit. Clearly, there have been a lot of hiccups alongside the best way, nevertheless it’s lastly completed and simply in time, too, as a result of the 12 months is coming to a detailed and I like to wrap up all of our tasks by the 12 months’s finish.

So, I’m very excited to share how this stunning toilet turned out–it was value each hiccup!

The choice for this upstairs toilet renovation really stemmed from our frustrations with the downstairs laundry room. It’s location was something however useful and would make extra sense as a pool toilet, so we began sketching out house for a brand new laundry room upstairs. We deliberate to borrow house from the “playroom” (that’s now not a playroom) to make room for the laundry room, and since that was all getting torn up, we wished to see if we may simplify the lavatory format that you just needed to stroll by way of to get to the long run laundry room and as an alternative carve out a hallway.

Misplaced? Right here’s slightly ground plan so you’ll be able to see the modifications we made over the past 7 months:

The toilet took up plenty of house, however so inefficiently. Right here’s what the lavatory seemed like earlier than!

POV: You’re standing within the doorway entrance of what we used to name the “playroom,” however is now the laundry room doorway.

Positively take a better have a look at the format earlier than and after to get a greater visible of how every little thing acquired switched, however I’ll strive my greatest to elucidate it. We determined to chop into the lavatory ground house to create a hallway in between the laundry room and the lavatory. Clearly, Greta’s toilet decreased in measurement, nevertheless it was method too huge to start out with. There was once two separate vanities and two sinks, and thru that second door was the bathroom and bathe/tub combo. Now it’s only one simplified house!


You wouldn’t understand it from the earlier than photograph, however there was a window again there all alongside. The second we began opening up the partitions, and I noticed the sunshine flooding in, I knew in my coronary heart this was the proper determination.


Imagine it or not, this is similar view, and also you’re now standing within the laundry room!

That is primarily Greta’s toilet! It’s throughout the corridor from her bed room and is the place she showers, will get prepared, and can sometime most likely placed on make-up and blast music… It’s additionally the lavatory that the entire household makes use of after we’re up within the bonus room watching television. I wished it to really feel female and funky sufficient for a tween however nonetheless mature sufficient for Chris, myself or company to make use of.

Let’s take a better have a look at every little thing, lets?

The Toilet Vainness

Vainness | Knobs | Sink Spout | Faucet Handles | Mirror | Sconces | Hand Wash | Towel Ring | Hand Towel | Canister | Tile

Earlier than selecting the tile or something, I discovered the self-importance I wished! A customized self-importance wasn’t within the funds, so discovering a strong self-importance in the proper measurement and magnificence was my first precedence. Nonetheless, when you’ve been following this venture intently, you understand that this isn’t even the primary self-importance I selected! Initially, I selected a mahogany self-importance that appeared like it could be good, however the second it was unboxed, I spotted the wooden tone was method darker than I anticipated and never as heat as I hoped. I used to be capable of return it for a full refund. Lengthy story quick, I discovered this different self-importance with comparable dimensions that’s the proper heat mahogany wooden tone I initially wished.

I swapped out the knobs it got here with for these brass hex knobs and this faucet, and I’m in love. Right here’s a joke: Our contractor unintentionally cracked the marble countertop it got here with, so we selected this marble remnant on the native stone yard to have fabricated at no additional price to us.

Oh, and this self-importance has unimaginable storage! Even that center drawer is definitely usable, so there’s loads of room for every little thing to be saved and tidy.

As soon as I knew I wished a traditional, heat wooden self-importance, I used to be capable of make selections about every little thing else, together with the tile.

Tile In all places

I went by way of so many flooring choices earlier than I assumed, “What if I did a callback to the powder toilet flooring… besides inverse?!” And so we did. Black hex tile with white punched-out patterns.

Initially, I used to be contemplating doing wallpaper in right here, nevertheless it got here again to–this toilet needs to be match for a tween. As an alternative, we determined to place tile all over the place!

We did floor-to-ceiling marble subway tile, and tiled field trim, and marble chair rail with a black pencil trim! As soon as our contractor Micah tell us that the tilers are one of the best of one of the best, I wished to go all out! This tile venture ended up being essentially the most intricate but additionally one of the crucial stunning tile jobs we have now carried out in a house. Right here’s a submit with a extra in-depth have a look at the tile-laying course of.

One other key component on this toilet renovation is the show-stopping bathe!

Glass Gridded Bathe

At one level, I thought-about doing a brass-gridded bathe! I even performed with the concept of not doing a grid and simply doing plain glass. Boy-oh-boy, am I glad I went with the black grid design as a result of I adore it’s the star of the present!

The hinges cease the swinging door from opening previous 90 levels, so it will possibly open each out and in however by no means previous 90. In different phrases, it’s by no means going to stumble upon the self-importance or the bathe knob!

Considered one of my favourite bathe options is the little nook for storing soaps but additionally doubles as a ledge for leg-shaving!

Bathe Head | Arm | Valve

Surprisingly, that is the very first time I’ve ever used brass fixtures in a rest room! I usually love polished nickel, however I knew this toilet may gain advantage from some heat with all of the tile. Hubba Hubba.

The Ending Touches

Canisters | Artwork | Image Mild | Bathroom Paper Holder

Since that is primarily Greta’s toilet, I wished there to be femininity sprinkled all through. This artwork was picked particularly for her (hung with a command hook), and, together with the traditional whites, heat woods, and brassy metals, this toilet feels very smooth, delicate, and girlish.

I hung a lacy, light-filtering cafe curtain with a rigidity rod for some added privateness but additionally to melt the house a bit. On this photograph, you additionally get a better have a look at the gorgeous veining on the marble countertop! Gorgeous.

Lace Cafe Curtain | Tub Towel | Towel Hook

On the opposite aspect of the window, we put a brass double-prong hook, simply inside attain of the bathe, for hanging towels!

And that’s the entire toilet! I’m utterly obsessive about each sq. inch of this small house and giddy to share the completed laundry room… quickly!
