So many beautiful bathrooms. I love the diversity of color, tile, style ... yet they all fit the spaces they inhabit.
We had one full bath when we moved in - a tiny one on the second floor, in keeping with the conventions of 1910 houses in our area. We had a half bath that had been added on and tucked into what used to be a butler's pantry on the first floor. And we had a strange 1920s toilet sitting right on the sewer in the basement. That was it!
We did 3 bath reno projects. First, we redid the powder room. That one had to be done twice, after a mistake was made the first time. Then we jumped right in and put a brand new master bath on our third floor - which of course involved a tremendous amount of work and money, since we were putting water, drains and electricity where none had ever existed before. Finally, last year, we turned to the small second floor bath and did a total gut - stripping out the horrible 60s/70s crap that was in there and returned it to what we imagined it looked like in 1910.
Here are pics from our reno of the small 2nd floor bath. It's simple and utilitarian, nothing fancy, and we did it on a small budget, but you can't believe how much it has enhanced our lives to be rid of the ugliness that used to reside there.
I will do separate posts for the other two if I can find my pictures.BEFORE - the "Mexican Sand" special, with the ugliest medicine cabinet that was ever manufactured.DEMOLITION: oh happy day!WORKFINISHED
