Boys Bathroom Reveal








 

The goal was to have the boys (Hubby and Stepson) share the hallway bathroom.  The bathroom as-is was floor to ceiling pink and floral circa 1980’s remodel.  Jacuzzi tub and no shower.  Not exactly the ideal boys bathroom.  Here it is in all its splendor and glory…

DURING – down to the studs

AFTER

009v2

The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Hales Navy (my all time favorite color) with the white beadboard below.  We split the difference between splurge and save to stay within budget.

The floors are commercial grade Italian tile.  I wanted the floors to be as boy-proof as humanly possible. That was the splurge.  The subway wall tile in the shower was Home Depot stock.

The floor tile, vanity, sink, and faucets all came from Renaissance Tile and Bath, a local store. Kerry was my design consultant and she was the best ever!

017v2

I did away with traditional towel bars and went with hooks.  And guess what… even a 10 year-old can manage to get the towel back to it’s home without being reminded.  The hand towel holders are actually the matching toilet paper holder.  Shhhh…. don’t tell!

024v2

This is where the fun and creativity came in.  I didn’t want to put the beadboard behind the sink.  But it’s a splash zone.  So we put the subway tile on it’s side to go vertical instead of horizontal and it mimics the beadboard in pattern and color.

018v2

We only had a small nook for the sink.  I looked at a trough style sink with 2 faucets… for 2 to share, you actually need 2 faucets, not 2 sinks.  But I found this and it was the perfect size so each one has his own sink.

021v2

020v2

Pottery Barn for the sconces and medicine cabinets.

019v2

Kohler Memoirs toilet.  I find it kinda funny that they named a toilet Memoirs.  LIke how many memories do you really want to take with you on what you do on the toilet????  But it is the best toilet ever in both style and um… functionality.  Toilet paper holder came from Walmart.

027v2

I can’t remember where I saw this idea, but I had to replicate it.  The tiered shelf thingy came from Target.  As did all of the towels.  Stepson’s color is blue.  Hubby’s color is gray.

Oh and BTW… when I was doing the glamour shots for the blog, I thought about removing some of the items to look like the pictures in a magazine.  But hello… we are a normal family and it’s….a…bathroom.  I’ve always wondered what the fancy people do when they run out of TP and it’s not right next to you.

026v2

025v2

Shower curtain came from West Elm.

022v2

023v2

When it was finished, Stepson was so excited to see it, he came running downstairs, gave me a big hug, and said, “Stepmom, I love my new bathroom.  Thank you.”  Bathroom remodels are always a major headache, but it was totally worth it.  Hubby loves it too.  It hits the perfect note for father and son to share a bathroom.

Love, hugs, and Memiors… seriously?

    Wow, what a great transformation! I love the floor tiles you cose. The new tub/shower will be more practical and the new sink station is pretty darn nice! LOL on the Memoirs toilet (I have the same one and the sink)! I found it to be an attractive design. After I removed the last of my wallpapering in my home I said “never again”!

    The before/after are just amazing! Looks great. We are in the process of renovating a bathroom for our little boy so I totally get it on being “boy friendly”. Great job!

      Hi Kristina & Millie – I know, right? That sink was the kicker for me too. I was ready to splurge on it, but surprisingly, it was right on budget. Hugs, Holly

    Where is the sink/vanity from? Been looking for something exactly like that for our tiny master. Would love to get the make/model of both and the dimensions.

    Beautiful remodel!

    What a beautiful transformation! We removed wallpaper once from walls that hadn’t been primed first. I think it would have been easier just to take the walls down. lol It’s wonderful to meet you. Happy belated SITS Day!
