Second Pandemic Refresh/Remodeling Project almost done!

If there’s one good thing about the Pandemic, it’s that it’s forced us to focus on some home projects. We plan to sell our house in a few years and it’s essential that we update it. Last year we did our master bath and we were so pleased with the results that we used most of the same tile choices, with the exception of the floor, in the refresh of our powder/guest room on our main floor.

This bathroom technically is not a powder room as it has a bath/shower, but it’s hard to call it a guest bath either as the room next door could not be classified as a bedroom as it doesn’t have a closet. However, it functions well enough as a guest room as we have a bed and a dresser. Good enough!

Anyhow, the builders of this house put wood floors in this bath. How dumb is that? Once the toilet did flood and we were in a panic. I guess it’s just as dumb as the carpet they put in the master bath. In the master bath we ripped out the carpet and put in gray plank tile. It is stunning! However, since I didn’t think it would make sense to have the plank tile intersect with the wood floor, we went with a matte porcelain tile that looks like marble. I’m really pleased with the end result. I was worried about ripping out the wood floor, but thankfully my contractor did a good job.

In the shower we used the same white wave tile and accent tile that we used in the master.

We are not quite done. We kept the same vanity and we’re having that painted. I’ll post pictures of the completed project in about another 2 weeks, along with the name of the tile we used as reference for those who are interested. In the meantime, enjoy a sneak peak with my cat.
