So Comfortable That Your Guests Will Never Leave - A Bathroom Renovation!

Updated: Sep 2, 2019


This is our newly renovated guest bathroom. Think it turned out very nicely! Below is the before picture!

Big difference, right?


This is a long narrow room and the existing vanity is longer than standard size vanities. Therefor, we decided to keep it.

As in many older homes, the counter height was a bit on the low end. We added some legs, which we bought at #homedepot and used sink bowls instead to give it more height. The sink bowls and chrome faucets we found on #amazon.

The legs meant we had to add tiles underneath the vanity too, but it was worth the extra cost, as it gives it a nice elegant look.

We painted the vanity white and kept the excisting chrome knobs!

The countertop was replaced with beautiful black granite with sparks of silver! #celticmarble

We kept the mirrors, but framed them with black painted wood and added new light fixtures.


For the floor tiles we chose a mat black hexagon tile for a classic and timeless look. We chose to do dark grout instead of white as it makes it less busy in a small room!


Guests usually do not take baths when visiting, they take showers! Old bathtub cabin was removed and we created a nice shower stall instead. The elegant glass shower doors are from #homedepot as well and was quite expensive, but a must for the space, I think! Nothing worse than a shower curtain sticking to your skin!
