Simplicity in Your Bathroom Remodel May be Your Best Bet

Bathroom Vanity double sinks solid wood

Renovating a bathroom can be an exciting but daunting task. With so many options and decisions to make, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. But after years of neglecting my upstairs bathroom, I finally decided to take the plunge and give it the update it deserved. Below are our Before photos that went through a few cheap tries of a refresh by changing faucets and hardware. It was all together a hot mess.

One of the first decisions I had to make was where to source my materials. After some research and browsing, I ended up selecting finishes from Home Depot, Floor and Decor, and Amazon. These stores had a great selection of high-quality materials at reasonable prices, which made it easy for me to find exactly what I was looking for.

When it came to selecting a vanity, I knew I wanted something that was solid wood to prevent warping and water damage, a lot of storage, and hair dryer storage with electrical. However, this meant that we needed to add an outlet to the bathroom. While this was an extra step in the renovation process, it was well worth it in the end.

Next up was the lighting. I initially planned on selecting vanity lighting, but I found the decision too daunting for such a small space. Instead, we decided to remove the fur down and go with can lights. This not only gave us more flexibility with our lighting options, but it also made the space feel more open and inviting.

One of the riskier decisions I made was with the flooring. I fell in love with an oversized hexagon tile that was not commonly used in small spaces. Despite the pit in my stomach, I decided to go for it and I’m so glad I did. The color and unique shape added a fun and playful touch to the space.

Overall, I am thrilled with how the renovation turned out. The finishes I selected from Home Depot, Floor and Decor, Target, and Amazon all came together perfectly to create a cohesive and stylish look. And while the process was daunting at times, I learned that taking risks can often lead to the most rewarding results.

Here are the links for all the finishes we chose:
