This post has been a long time coming… our first bathroom remodel is complete!!! I want to give a huge thank you to Signature Hardware who sponsored this project. Their high quality, gorgeous products are the star of this space!
This project took nearly 6 months to complete because we decided to DIY a good portion of it during the holiday season and hire out subcontractors for others parts like the drywall, plumbing and tile install. If we went with a remodeling company, it probably would have been finished much sooner, but we would have paid a considerable amount more.
Our home is only 1,100 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for the 5 of us. Both of the bathrooms were stuck in the original era this home was built, the 1970s, so one of the first things we did was a full gut on the smaller bathroom. Goodbye drop down ceiling and tiled walls.
BEFORE: 1970s Boring, Outdated Bathroom
The dimensions are small at 5′ x 8′, so only the bare necessities fit: a shower, toilet & vanity. We kept the existing footprint, but demolished the room down to the studs – something we had never down before. The walls were a bear to remove since they were made out mesh metal lath and plaster, but the claustrophobia-inducing shower stall needed to go!
