Hey, I’m continuing with my house tour today. I revealed the Main Bathroom remodel a while back and now it’s time to shine a bit of light on the tiny Guest Bathroom. It’s a small bathroom situated downstairs, next to the kitchen.
It doesn’t get much light, and is usually dark even on the brightest of days. So my goal of the guest bathroom design was to brighten it and turn it into a restful place. But I didn’t want it to be boring. Nor loud. I mean it doesn’t need to be loud to be visually interesting, IMHO. It was a delicate balance and quite the challenge.
First, let’s take a look at what I had to deal with.
It had mosaic in red-yellow tones, beige floor tiles, 1×2′ white wall tiles and the cement encased row of pebbles which I loathe.
The window opens out to a covered yard, which doesn’t provide much sunlight. But better than none, I guess.
On the vanity was a bowl sink and granite countertop. Both were still in good condition, so I reused them.
The structure and flow of the bathroom stayed the same. I replaced the bathroom tiles and changed out the wooden undersink cabinet, which was falling apart.
I’ve written a post previously on choosing bathroom tiles and how tough it actually is. So many mind boggling options! In that post, I also showed the plans for the guest bathroom design which Charlotte from Feruni Ceramiche plotted out for me. In the end, I chose Option 1 with triangles but changed out the floor tiles for a lighter coloured tile.
