The Kid’s Brand New Bathroom Reveal

Hallelujah! I think I have a new favorite room in my house cause the kid’s bathroom renovation is finally done and it is everything I imagined it could be and more!

We started this bathroom renovation 3 months ago.  We had no idea that once we started a zillion and one things would come up that made for entire weekends that we couldn’t get in there and get anything done.  But as soon as life settled back down we got back to work and I’m soooo excited with the result and relieved that it is done (cause you know me, I’m already planning my next big project!)

If you don’t remember this is what the kid’s bathroom looked like before. (yuck)

Ok.  Are you ready for the bathroom reveal?  Here you go!

Oh man.  I just got the total goose bumps!  As I’m putting this post together it is the first time that I’ve seen the before and after side by side and I can’t wait till my hubs gets home so I can give him a high five and a big fat kiss for letting me talk him into doing this and for all of his help!

I love everything about this bathroom! It is so light and bright and feels so clean!

The first decision we made for this bathroom were these beautiful tumbled stone hexagon tiles for the floor from The Tile Shop.  Each one has a slight play in color which I love.

We paired it with larger than normal scale subway tile in a matte white for the tub/ shower surround and took the tile all the way to the ceiling, which makes this small bathroom feel much larger than it really is.

And I love the bright white against this beautiful and subtle paint color. (Dew Pointe by Behr Marquee.) It reminds me of sea glass!

We had some plumbing issues that set us back a little bit, but once those were taken care of in went these sleek brushed nickle faucets that Moen ® sent us.

Tiling the tub/ shower surround took us two full days mostly because we created a niche that took a bit of figuring out, but I have to say, we sorta impressed ourselves on this one.

The other big problem in the bathroom before was the vanity.  It didn’t even have drawers and the under cabinet storage was not cutting it at all.bathroom renovation, bathroom renovation ideas, DIY bathroom makeover, gutting the bathroom

So we ripped it out and installed a new one using the grey cabinets from Ikea’s kitchen line. This gave us all of the storage we needed plus it made the vanity higher, which makes the space feel more up to date.Kid's bathroom remodel

We debated on adding a second sink, but we opted for more counter space instead.  We figured that as our daughter grows up she will need a spot to do her hair and makeup.  This also allowed us to put two banks of drawers in the vanity.  Now we have so much storage that we have empty drawers!

We also put in a new medicine cabinet since the one that was there was ugly and rusted on the inside.

And just for a little more perspective…  here’s the before from this angle.

I still can’t get over the difference.

You can see that we used the same mirror, but we did replace the light with a new vanity light and put in daylight bulbs which give off really nice white light.

I wanted a timeless look, but I also wanted to add a pop of color and fun since this is kid’s bathroom and so I kept the same shower curtain and added some art that I found on etsy that went with the subtle beach theme I was going for.

In place of using a towel bar, I opted to use knobs so that my kids could easily hang their towels.  For right now, we just have small towels here for their hands and face, but eventually this might be where they hang their bath towels.

So there you have it…

3 months and 1 demo day, 3 tiling days, 3 plumbing and tub days, 1 cabinet building day, 1 cabinet install day, 1 countertop install day, 2 painting days, 2 details days, so many trips to Home Depot, and 2 little kids that still needed to be watched, fed, and taken to sports and birthday parties later, we have ourselves a new bathroom! Whew!

If you loved this reno, I’d love for you to pin it by hovering over any image!

Kid's bathroom reveal! You will not believe what this couple was able to do to create the bathroom of their dreams!

  1. I love it! Fresh, clean and modern, it’s not too grown up to be a kids bathroom but an adult could easily call it their own.

    1. Thanks so much! That is exactly what we were going for!

  2. Jennifer Jenkins says:

    hello …. can you offer maintenance feedback on the marble floors you installed? I’ve been avoiding marble due to staining concerns etc …

    would you choose a tumbled marble floor again?

  3. Robin says:

    One more thing to add would be to put a frame around the mirror that would match the vanity cabinet. That would the icing on the cake!

  4. Amber says:

    Hello! Beautiful bathroom! Can you please tell me what the name of the tile is you used on the floor? The link doesn’t say.
    Is it porcelain?
    Thank you!!
