Half Bath Remodel: Before & Afters

I’m so excited to share our finished half bath remodel! We completely gutted the bathroom and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out. Sources will be at the bottom of the post.

The original half bath was useable but it was dated and definitely embarrassing. Some of the square floor tiles had popped off and the pedestal sink also had a crack in it. The walls were painted a red that was very popular in the early 2000’s. There even used to be a wallpaper border with leaves too but I removed that a few years ago.

It’s a really small room (51″ x 60″) but I knew I wanted to add a wall treatment for visual interest. This was the mood board I created.

And here’s what the bathroom looks like after! Adding the large format tile and the wall treatment make the room feel so much larger.

I love how the board and batten turned out! I guess it might not technically be board and batten since we only did the battens (using lattice strips) but I think it still gives the same effect. We took it 3/4 of the way up the wall and painted it in Sherwin Williams’ Harwood Putty (color matched at Home Depot). The upper wall color is Calligraphy by Behr.

Storage space was really lacking in this bathroom before. Removing the pedestal sink and replacing it with a vanity gave us a place to store cleaning supplies and extra toilet paper.

We purchased a new metal mirror from Amazon that adds an industrial touch. To save some money, we kept the existing light fixture and spray painted it black. The style doesn’t really go with the rest of the space and we’ll probably replace it down the road but for now it works.

To finish off the room I added a digital print I found on Etsy. I’d call this bathroom done!

P.S., I’ll let you in on a little secret: this bathroom remodel was actually finished in February. I still wanted to share it because it’s pushed us to make updates to the rest of the house. Stay tuned for those!
