Bathroom Reveal!

 I'm so excited to share these photos of our new bathroom with you. We've wanted to remodel our hall bathroom for so long!

Here's a quick peak, before I dive into all the details.

And of course, I should jog your memory with these oh-so-lovely "Before" photos of the bathroom before we got our hands on it.

Plain and nothing special, right?

But now, our hall bathroom looks like this . . .  

All of the finishes are in high polish chrome. Though this photo doesn't do it much justice, I am in love with our new light. The mirror was purchased at HomeGoods for just $20! I gave it a quick coat of spray paint, since the original finish was more pewter than chrome.

Our vanity is made from walnut wood and the hardware is from Martha Stewart's Home Depot line.

At $4.49 a pop, they were priced a little bit higher than most of the drawer pulls that we were looking at, but they were too beautiful to pass up!

Of course, no room is complete without a touch of plant life. This orchid probably won't survive under my care for much longer, but it sure is pretty.

Our new shower has subway tile, which has always been a favorite of mine. It's so clean and classic.

After bumping out the wall, our bathroom has much more space.

The new window let's in so much natural light that we usually don't even have to hit the light switch. Happily, our new light has a dimmer, so if we have guests over in the evenings, we can keep the light on very low so our guests can easily find the bathroom.

The granite vanity top is something that I love! When I first laid eyes on this type of granite years ago, I knew that I had to find a way to bring some into our home. (I'm hoping that our kitchen is next!) The floor is covered with 24" Limestone tile that was laid diagonally. We love larger tile, so we were happy to find pieces that we agreed on. Joe originally wanted Travertine, but I was dreaming of Limestone. As soon as we saw this tile, we knew it was perfect for our bathroom.

And there you have it!

What's your bathroom style? Do you lean more traditional, like we do? Or do you prefer something more modern? Do share!

  1. WOW! How impressive! You did an outstanding job with the remodel! I LOVE the granite vanity and the lighting makes a HUGE deference too!

  2. It's really beautiful. I love that you found ways to save money with hardware and the mirror-you'd never know that you didn't pay the big money.

  3. I'm more traditional, too, so I loved the remodel immediately! The first thing I noticed was the granite, but the rest of it is lovely, too.

  4. Oh my gosh, I am blown away!!! Your bathroom looks sooo amazing! It's very traditional, but for some reason it feels so fresh and modern too. Great job you guys!!

  5. Your bathroom is beautiful! What color paint did you use on the walls?
