So, if you know it’s time to give your home’s bathrooms an update, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at 10 amazing before and afters of bathroom remodels…
1. Tired and… Carpet?
Sure, it might be comfortable to have wall-to-wall carpeting in your bathroom, but it’s totally impractical, no matter how nice the carpet.
Ripping out the carpet, beautiful tiles were laid down. But the real star here is the vanity, especially with that under-sink shelf that’s perfect for storing towels.
2. Simple Updates, Big Changes
In terms of layout and look, this simple guest bathroom is pretty standard. However, it does look like it needs a fresh look.
By swapping out the pedestal sink for one with straighter lines, adding wallpaper, and installing glass-front doors for the built-in cabinet, this
space receives a modern spin.
3. Plain Vanilla to Real Thrilla
Like a plate of chicken fingers and French fries, this bathroom is beige on beige. It really doesn’t get more vanilla than this!
A fresh coat of brownish orange paint plus a brand-new tiled walk-in shower gives this bathroom some visual spark and a contemporary bent.
4. Cookie Cutter to Eye Opener
If you looked up the term “entry-level vanity” on Google, you’d probably end up finding something a lot like this.
That’s what makes this makeover so exciting. Just check out this contemporary vanity with wrap-around countertop. It’s absolutely gorgeous!
5. Bare Minimum to Marble Beauty
With a simple rectangular mirror on the wall and a countertop featuring a built-in sink, it doesn’t get more “bare minimum” than this.
The soft grey stain of the natural wood, combined with the luxury touch of marble, yields a bathroom that feels positively relaxing.
6. Just the Basics to Just Gorgeous
A simple walk-in shower unit plus a pedestal sink with oval mirror yields a bathroom that’s just the basics, ma’am.
An all-new high-tech built-in shower system plus the addition of wainscoting to the walls adds a sense of definition to the space that’s imply infectious.
7. Working with Good Bones
There’s no doubt that the storage options available as part of this double vanity are great; but the look is decidedly blah.
A fresh coat of white paint, plus some beautiful mirrors, maintains the storage options while increasing the luxury factor.
8. Adding an Accent Wall
A simple single vanity with a large rectangular mirror is fine, but there’s clearly something missing here.
Now check out the new vanity with the conversation-starting sink! But, the real standout here is the beautiful rock accent wall.
9. Unappealing to Popping Colors
The combination of the light green tile and countertop with the wood cabinets and vanity is unsettling to say the least…
The move to a grey color scheme, which is perfectly framed by the piece of wall art above the toilet, helps greatly to achieve balance in the color scheme.
10. Confusion to Cohesion
While this bathroom is certainly going for a luxury look with the marble, the wallpaper creates a visually confusing look.
By keeping the marble but replacing the wallpapered walls with mirrored walls, this bathroom ends up looking as luxurious as it was intended to be.
