Tile it up!

Tile it up!
A few years ago we lived in Layton, UT, in a house that was about 30 years old.  I’m pretty sure the bathroom had never been remodeled once in those 30 years.  Elizabeth’s before bathroom here is giving me a total flashback, only replace that brown and beige tile with ALL brown, but a poopier shade, and replace that small frosted window with a full-size regular window (why, WHY!?!) and there you have my old bathroom. Try to contain your jealousy.  
I wish I had known how big of a difference new tile would have made back then, this looks 100 years newer!  And don’t you love how the tile goes all the way up to the ceiling?  Why did no one think of that 30 years ago?  Was there a tragic tile shortage or something?  Were we rationing it for the war?  Was there a war?  I guess we’ll never know.

    I cry a little every time I see a beautiful vintage bathroom whited out.

    This is awesome! Does anyone know how much a project like this ballparks? I have a feeling a bathroom tile redo might be in my future…

    Thanks AK! Our cost was around $4k. But remember we had to do a lot more than tile – taking the walls down to the studs, pluming, etc. So hopefully the cost for you would be a bit less. 🙂

    I LOVE what you did with your bathroom! Something about all-white rooms just makes my mood better and no matter how dark and cloudy it is outside, that room in your house will always be bright, plus you can add in a pop of color with other accessories to make it more modern!

    Looks gorgeous!! I can’t believe such a simple renovation could bring such life to a room. Truly remarkable design.
