This bathroom is in my basement and the dark yellow walls were great 7 years ago but I wanted to lighten and brighten the space. The main purpose for the remodel was to get more storage and this birdbath sink didn’t do the job.
In addition to needing more storage, the floor color was great but functionally the toilet never sat straight on it and the gaps in the wood laminate let water in so there was actually black mold hiding underneath when we tore it up. So new flooring was a must!!
I love the white calacatta porcelain tiles we chose that are mostly white with some gray veins running through them. They were such a reasonable price from Lowe’s and we used the 12×12 floor tiles mixed with the smaller 6×6 tiles to give it a little more interest . I kept the same shower curtain but painted the walls white, a Behr paint color called Irish Mist from homedepot.com . Adding some natural wood elements in the stool and mirror help to break up the stark white throughout the space.
The sink, vanity, faucet and glass shelf all came from ikea.com . The rustic wood mirror was a great find from hobbylobby.com . Now our guests will have storage as well as space above the sink to set bathroom items on. We’re so happy with the end result. The choice of white in such a small space really opened it up and brightened the room. Since my husband did all of the work, it only ended up costing around $500 for the whole makeover!!
