Completed Bathroom Renovation #BathroomReno

Bathroom Renovation DIY
We have been busy taking on a DIY bathroom project, which has been long, but fun and satisfying. We wanted our bathroom to be functional and fit for everyone in the family, so when we designed it we had an universal design in mind. This allowed us to make the space functional and safe without compromising style and character.
The layout of the washroom before we renovated wasn't functional, and made the bathroom look small and hard to maintain. When we did the remodel, we decided to change a few things in the space to make it feel spacious. For example, the door to the bathroom now opens outward giving more space inside.

We decided to bring the closet inside the bathroom. This closet was in the hallway adjacent to the bathroom and was not accessible from the inside. Bringing the closet inside, has become more convenient to get towels and personal care items.

We added a DIY rolling door to the closet so it can maintain privacy. To keep everything inside the shelves organized we added rev-a-shelf storage options. Adding rev-a-shelf pullout options helps to easily access the items for everyone, so we can better use the deep shelves without difficulty.

For the shower stall floor and the custom seating inside the shower stall we chose hexagonal tiles with the honeycomb composition. We felt that this design adds more character when it is spread across the floor and up the wall of the shower stall seat. 
The 2" tiles we chose have texture on it, similar to the shower stall flooring we chose in another bathroom in our home. We like the texture on this tile because it looks fun, and mainly because the stone feel and grip that does not slip easily. I am glad we added the custom shower bench, as it is useful to take a seat while in the shower.

For the shower walls we used 4"x12" white porcelain tiles and placed them in a subway style design. For the outside of the bathroom floor we chose a durable porcelain tile that resembles hardwood. We like the long narrow planks that has a texture similar to wood, as it adds warmth and colour to the space. We like using porcelain tiles because it is versatile, and the material can be easily wiped and maintained. For all tiles we went with the same tone grey grout.

For the accessories, shower fixtures, and the faucet we placed on our DIY custom built vanity, we chose the Delta Dryden collection in Venetian Brown that contrasts with the colours we chose for the bathroom, and adds character. Placing these accessories such as the toilet paper holder, robe hook, and towel holders makes the space convenient and functional.

We decided to place a long rectangle mirror over our DIY vanity and toilet that makes the room appear big. We found adding the large mirror makes it functional and helps bounce light around the washroom.

For the light fixtures we wanted to maintain simplicity, but wanted a lot of light, and the option of dimming the light to have a spa feel. We added flush mounted LED ceiling fixtures with a dimmer option, and a waterproof flush mounted LED ceiling light for inside the shower stall. We also added a exhaust fan that helps prevent moisture from gathering, and helps the bathroom have good ventilation.
Bathroom Renovation DIY
For paint we went with Para paints, and used their Ultra collection. We chose the white tones, so the accessories have a bold contrast, and the room feels bigger. Since all the drywall was new we primed it first with Ultra Latex Primer, then painted the trims, the closet door, and the washroom door with Chrysler Hall white. For the walls and ceiling we used a glossier finish mold and mildew free Kitchen and Bath, Out for a stroll white paint. For the hallways where we closed up the closet, we used their Sweet Icewine, a cream tone paint.

Hope this post inspires you to take on a #BathroomReno.
