Degrossifying my bathroom: Final Chapter, (giveaway now closed)

** GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED **
So, are you ready for the final chapter in the degrossification of my master bath?   To get you up to speed, The Home Depot offered me a chance to try out their Atmospheres Collection line of Daltile tileexcitedface!  I had an in-store visit with our personal flooring expert Ron, and loaded up with everything I needed to decarpet our bathroom.
Matt got busy right away tearing it out, and surprisingly, it was not that bad under there.  Just kidding, it was super gross.  I was literally skipping around the house just to have it gone.  
The tiling process was actually pretty easy; we only hit a few minor snafus along the way. (Hint: don’t bother with unsanded grout. We should have listened to Ron and his eyebrow of dubiousness when we put it in our cart). 
So, after nearly four years of living with it like this, and only a few evenings of work, we’ve finally got a bathroom floor that doesn’t give your stomach the herky-jerkys.  Want to see?
 
So. Much. Brown. And that light fixture!  And I promise I don’t usually have a blanket tacked up over the bedroom window. Super classy.  But now …

Woo!
Do you like it?  I love it.  I’m so happy with the results.  It’s so much brighter in there, it feels twice as big! 
If you remember, I had originally wanted a rectangle tile, but the one I chose was actually wall tile, so no bueno. We achieved a similar look by simply staggering the 12×12 tiles. (Briton Bone, see it HERE).
You may notice the “shoe” trim around the edges.  This is what happens when you are unaware that your husband’s tiling experience only equals “I helped a guy tile once back in high school.”  So we had some rough edges that could have been unnoticeable had we just cut them a bit more exact. (Grout can only do so much).  I’ll probably paint or stain them in the future to blend in a bit better with the cabinetry, but I’m not complaining.  Because let’s take one more look at the tragic before:

The new light fixtures are from The Home Depot and the mirror frame is from Mirror Mate.  (Stay tuned for more info on that).  Someday I’d like to frame the other mirror too, but it has an obnoxiously placed outlet cut right into the edge of the glass.
And now, just for reading the scintillating saga of my bathroom floor, you have a chance to win a $100 gift card to The Home Depot!

Entering is easy!  Like really easy.  Just leave me a comment and make sure you leave a way for me to contact you!

That’s it!  Good luck, I hope you win!  Giveaway will end Monday, July 16th.
The Home Depot partnered with bloggers like me to participate in the Daltile program.  As part of the program, I received compensation from The Home Depot in the form of a gift card to participate in this campaign promoting the new Atmospheres Tile Collection by Daltile.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

The Home Depot’s policies align with WOMMA Ethics Code, FTC guidelines and social media engagement recommendations. Winner will be chosen at random and gift card fulfillment will be handled by a third party.

  9. Wow, I love it! We want to tile our bathrooms as well. No yucky carpet in ours though. Just ugly linoleum. The builders did not splurge on the flooring in our house. Or the light fixtures. Or the fireplace…

  36. It looks soooo much bigger and brighter!
    Excellent job :)

  37. Wowee! That is so speccy! You’ve done a terrific job. Did you remember to use grout sealer? If you did, go get some before it’s too late. It stops the grout from staining. It can be a real pain in the bum to get down and scrub. :)

  38. It does look twice as big! This is a great giveaway. Thanks! (kelseyfarr7@gmail.com)

  39. It looks great! I would have ripped up the carpet too!

  45. Yay for tile!! Andthe frame is fab too.

  46. Ooooo my bathroom in my new house is SO awful. The hot and cold water come out of two different spouts. Who does that? So you either freeze your hands or burn them off.

  47. Oh my gosh! The transformation is amazing! Whoever thought that carpet in a bathroom was a good idea anyway?? SUPER GROSS! Love the end result. It’s so much brighter!! :)

  48. Great design with the tile pattern. My bathroom floor in my over 100 year old house had to be replaced this week. Total rot….yuck…

    BRAVO on the do it yourselfiness of it all. Just call it a kickplate trend in the making and enjoy. You know, I think I would’ve stated a “tile drive” for you had you shown that before picture with “mine for four years and counting” as a caption. (My goodness girleen! It looked like Fozzie the Bear killed Chewbaca in that bathroom.)

My son is coming home in a few weeks and he asked what needed to be done while he was here. I told him I would have sheet rock and beadboard waiting for him when he gets here for the downstairs bathroom. Thanks for the chance! I enjoy your blog.

  152. Out of curiosity, where did you want to use unsanded grout? On the floor?
    Unsanded grout it a wall grout (to be used on easily scratched, high-gloss glass/porcelain/natural stone tiles). It does not have the stress to stand up to the use & abuse for a flooring application (unless of course you used a rectified grout joint and sealed it all and this would *ONLY* be advised if you were using an easily scratched natural stone for your floor).
    That’s the flooring girl in me talking!

    The bathroom looks great – love that you choose to cobble your floor tile… less grid-like than squaring the tiles up.

    Love the light fixture, definitely a lighter & brighter feel overall!

  153. It looks so fresh and light!

  154. Love the makeover. We have a large mirror in our main bathroom. Love the frame around the mirror. How did you attach it? Thanks for the giveaway.

  215. Why carpet would be allowed in bathroom? Crazy but looove the after now.

  216. I LOVE the dark cabinets and light walls. I was thinking of going the opposite for my bathroom, dark walls and light cabinets! LOVE the framed mirror too!

  217. Oh my gosh, I laugh out loud at almost everything you post. My sister’s newish house also had carpet in both bathrooms. Then she birthed two boys. Then they MOVED OUT OF STATE to get away from the crunchiness! Haha

I don’t know what could be worse, your carpet or my bathroom with all 4 walls covered in mustard yellow 2×2 tiles with a checkerboard pattern of dark brown tiles at the ceiling. Not to mention a drop ceiling–who knows how much moisture has gotten trapped in that? Yuck!

  391. It looks awesome – I agree, totally brightens it up! My hubby had carpeted bathrooms in his former house and he liked it – can you imagine?

  392. What a difference! Good job. Love that tile.

  405. Wow, what an amazing transformation! And, seriously, carpet? Who does that?!?

  406. Oh my GOSH — that looks like a completely different room! Our master bath is carpeted, too. NASTY. How hard was it to handle the transition from carpet to tile? That (and the fact that our room isn’t square = lots of odd cutting!) has me worried. Still, can’t wait to tile ours, and if it turns out half as nice as yours, I’m happy! Good job, and enjoy!

  407. I LOVE the way it turned out! I love the mirror frame, so I will be looking for more info on that. We have the same light fixture in our bathroom, and I can’t wait to replace it! GREAT WORK!

  408. I love your bathroom! Enjoy your blog so much! So inspirational and full of great ideas.

  464. We are in the process of degrossifying our small masterbathroom. not out of choice but because our house is on slab and our cast iron pipes had rotted out, and guess where that pipe went- from the kitchen sink through our hallway and through our shower/bathroom and slightly into our master bedroom. soooo we one thing led to another and another and we ended up gutting the bathroom to the studs, building an open shower, and custom vanity and every bit will be tiled(dal tile) everything except the ceiling. the rest of the house will be getting new floors. just because of the hallway. but thats alright because there was nasty green carpet in the bedrooms and bad tile job in the kitchen and also some poorly installed laminate in the living room. anyway,my wonderful hubby(not an expert handyman) took all the jobs on himself. and its looking great. mrscash2007 at gmail dot com

  596. I love the new tile, though I have to admit I love the added trim… we had the same “uh, lets just cover the edge of the hardwood floor with more trim” conversation in the living room. Whoopsie.

    Still, it is SO much more better after. :)

  597. LOVE IT!!!! I agree, it looks so much brighter and bigger. Thanks for the chance to win.

  640. When I was a kid, my parents had dark blue bathroom carpet. But the dog liked to pee in there, so there were this horrible greenish stains. Ugh.

    I’m glad you escaped the world of bathroom carpet and lived to tell the tale.

  641. I’m waaaay at the end, but I love your new bathroom. I’m busy fixing mine up too, and could sure use $100 for new bathroom towel/toilet paper fixtures!

  642. great bathroom, well done!

    I could use a gift card. our new neighbors just built a huge deck and comes very close to the side of our house and looks right into my kitchen family space. I feel totally invaded. i want to make a screen

  643. It looks beautiful! I love the staggered tiles.

    That looks great! We were at Home Depot this weekend looking at tile and remembering your post, I triple checked that the tile was floor and not wall tile before I decided that I liked it!

    I had my brother-in-law tile the bathroom (expert installer) with travertine from Home Depoe. Going from a dark fllor to light made a big impact in a much smaller bathroom than yours – love your new look.

  655. love your new bathroom! The lighter tile flooring makes such a huge difference!
    betterdesignbym@gmail.com

  656. It’s a fantastic upgrade. While I don’t have carpeting [bleeeck!] we moved into a house (almost 3 years ago) and the main bath has stick down “tiles”. Whaaaaat?!

  657. This comment has been removed by the author.

  658. Wow~! Super degrossified bathroom. While I don’t have carpeting to deal with [yuck] I do have stick down “tiles” in our main floor bathroom that are a whole other level of gross.

  660. Great job…’Turned a really dark spot into something bright and welcoming (Everyone should have a “welcoming” bathroom. LOL).

  661. The new floor looks great!

    jynnhayes @ gmail . com

  662. Love the staggered tiles!

  663. Isn’t it amazing what new flooring can do? It looks fabulous! When we moved into our house, there was carpeting the 1/2 bath which made NO sense at all (since you walked out of the bathroom onto tile) and was pretty much the most disgusting thing ever.

  664. I’m a little late in seeing this post, but it looks GREAT! I’m wondering, though… how did you manage to take all of those pictures without your reflection showing up in the big mirror? Are you secretly a vampire?? ;)

  665. Wow! I love it! I think the mirror frame makes a huge difference! (Next to the new tile, of course)

    sarahmiller1913 @ gmail.com

  666. It looks AWESOME! (And I’m kind of creeped out by how you’re vampirishly not in the reflections of the mirrors.) HA!!

  667. looks great! My master bathroom is in desperate need of an update. There’s just so much to do it’s overwhelming to even think about where to start.
