Bathroom Remodel #1: Hallway

We knew we had to eventually remodel both bathrooms in our house, sooner or later. Our house was built in the early 70's, and the original fixtures existed, until now. The most that had been done to this hallway bathroom was a tub refinishing by the previous owner (which had been gradually starting to peel), and linoleum tile on top of the old linoleum. The grout was constantly peeling and there was a super slow leak around the toilet. Time to bite the bullet... here is a picture of the hallway bathroom before the demolition.

We found Dan to remodel our bathrooms. He did our neighbor's kitchen and came highly recommended.

My preconception of doing a remodel was, look at some photos online and in magazines, and swiftly move forth from there. But it was a process, choosing tile, granite, fixtures, the toilets... very involved, and at the end, very rewarding and worthwhile. Let's just say I surprised myself with how particular I was with all the details! The family endured many trips to many stores and warehouses.

Dan came with us to pick out a granite slab for the sinks for both bathrooms, and the tub shelf for the master.

Yumi came with me to pick out a light fixture from Lowe's.

In goes the new tub, the tile, and the soap and shampoo dishes.

There is the vanity with the granite we picked out from the warehouse, which Dan carefully cut down to size.

Finished result! Toto toilet, shower rod and curtain from Target.

Other view: Danze fixtures, and cabinet knobs from Anthropologie.
