BATHROOM MAKEOVER REVEAL | ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 6
BATHROOM MAKEOVER REVEAL time!! This is a jaw-dropping bathroom makeover. You need to see the before and after! Modern, chic bathroom makeover with lots of cool design!
WE DID IT!!
This past five weeks went by so fast, and I still can’t believe we finished our bathroom! When Linda from Calling It Home kindly asked me to participate in the challenge as a featured designer, I was humbled and I, of course, said YES and immediately told the hub that we need to make it a good one this time:-) We decided that we are going to makeover our guest bathroom. To remind you of the before here are a few pictures and if you would like to see the progress you can check out
We decided to make over our guest bathroom. To remind you of the before, here are a few pictures, and if you would like to see the progress you can check out WEEK 1, WEEK 2, WEEK 3, WEEK4 and WEEK 5.
This guest bathroom needed some love, guys. It was the typical builder’s grade bathroom, and it was very much outdated. The color on the wall was awful; the flooring was old and messy, and I hated all of it!
We learned a lot in the progress of the makeover for sure! When a reader commented at the beginning of the challenge, and she said I was ambitious to take on a bathroom remodel in six weeks, I thought …yeah, what’s a bathroom remodel…easy-peasy, we can do it! But now, after lots of the stress, frustration and sleepless nights, I say this makeover was a big challenge, and I had no idea what I had signed up for! I’ve done many ONE ROOM CHALLENGES, but without a doubt, this was the toughest!
“WE DON’T GROW WHEN THINGS ARE EASY, WE GROW WHEN WE FACE CHALLENGES.”
We had several problems that resulted in delays, and lots of headaches and the lessons were learned:
– I am not a superwoman and I can’t do it all!
– Unexpected things would happen and you can’t control them!
– People are sent in your way for a reason.
– When it’s time to hire a professional to do the job you can’t, don’t call the guy from the neighborhood, but call and pay a professional!
After all, I am happy to report that we were able to pull this together. First and foremost, I have to THANK my husband for all the work he did. He is simply amazing! I also have to thank my dear friends who helped me watch the kiddos while we were putting the finishing touches on the project, and I have to thank the hard working guys who showed up after work to fix the walls came to put tile down over the weekend as well! This makeover was a race against the time and I am over the moon excited that it’s done and over with! But enough talking for me now and now I want to you to sit back and enjoy the transformation.
And now drum roll, please!
Here is our remodeled bathroom now after the makeover.
What a transformation, right? We just created my dream bathroom, you all!
The ugly plastic tub and the shower curtain are gone, and the use of subway tiles (4 x 12) all the way to the ceiling was a game changer! We also added a beautiful, deep, acrylic bathtub and a sleek glass door that covers the bathtub half way and it opens out.
We removed the door from the closet and left that closet open which was an excellent idea. The bathroom door has also been removed, and we built a sliding barn door (tutorial is coming soon). We’ve hung the door with the help of an Ironwood Loft Barn door Hardware.
Below are the CHUNKY SHELVES that we built, and I filled the shelves with large baskets for accessories, cleaning items and I rolled some comfy, plush towels for everyday use.
We installed a tower shower panel which is kind of cool and it was super easy to install. This small pocket on the wall was not planned but when I saw that awesome tile at Home Depot I knew I need to add it to my bathroom plans.
These cute little wooden planters are from Target. They come in neutral color and I stained them with the same RED CHESTNUT stain that I used for the closet shelves and for the recessed lights.
We built the recessed lighting, and we hung those pretty cool black pendant lights.
I chose to decorate with beautiful bamboo accessories and baskets to keep the SPA-like feel in the room.
Sometimes, the least expensive things are the best…like this towel ring for a few bucks:-) Isn’t it cool?
My vintage rug from Chairish was a perfect addition to my neutral colors scheme. It adds a little bit of contrast to the room, and I love it!
That piece of wall hanging was the last minute put together yesterday. I needed something to go on that white wall,
and I made up a quick DIY. 🙂 I will write a post on it later.
That towel rack was also a last minute DIY from an extra wooden piece. It turned out great and super functional.
I printed some of my photographs and hung them above the toilet.
And here is the obligatory BEFORE and AFTER!
I think I am ready to soak in that bathtub now! Here is a short video with a before and afters! Enjoy!

What a big transformation from the before to the after photos. Congratulations on a job well done! I love the tiling work done. Looks like such a clean and serene bathroom!
Gorgeous update, definitely has a sleek European feel but I love how that is offset by the more rustic touches.
This looks amazing! I have no words. Absolutely stunning!
Aniko, This is so stunning and gorgeous! Can I borrow you and your husband to come and redo ours??? Mr. Cottage is getting too old for all this remodeling and I’m actually doing the bulk of it now…LOL!
Aniko!!!! This is AAAAHHHHMAZING!!!!!! Wow! You killed it. It’s beautiful.
It’s an honor to hear from someone like you!! Heading over to see your reveal! Xo
You totally nailed it! Such a fresh and stylish bathroom. Simply gorgeous. Congratulations!
Thank you Jessie!
It’s so beautiful! I love the tile! And all of the wood! How does the barn door feel – privacy wise? I’m nervous to try it. But I love the way they look, plus they save so much space!
Emy, I love the barn door. It’s completely shots the room so I don’t think privacy wise it’s any different. Thanks for checking in today! Xo
Aniko – you killed this! Seriously, I LOVE the choices you made.
Thanks friend! I am very pleased with the outcome, too! Xo
Beautiful transformation! Love the mix of black, white and wood! Looks awesome!! Are the wooden planters from joss and main?
Leslie, I forgot to mention that those wooden planters are actually from Target ( craft section). They come in neutral color and I stained them with the same ( red chestnut) stain that I used for the closet shelves and for the recessed lights.:-) The hexagon shaped shelves are also the same:-)
WOW! This makeover is just amazing! I love everything from the subway tiles to the sliding doors! Great job!
This is such a great transformation! Nice job!
Amazing makeover and I love how you incorporated the recessed lighting – in sure that was a game changer. congrats on a beautiful makeover and completing it so quickly! You definitely deserve a soak in that tub 🙂
This is so modern and gorgeous! I love the natural elements so so much!
This is fabulous. I adore the black light fixtures and that tile floor, swoon! Bravo on completing a wonderful One Room Challenge!
Aniko! This is fantastic! I love it all so so much. Way to go my friend!
Aniko you did an amazing job designing and transforming this bathroom! Love the open shelving, and that gorgeous floor tile! Enjoy your new space!
Wow what a transformation! It’s beautiful Aniko!!
Glad you like it, Denise! It was a real challenge but now I can rest and soak in my new bathtub:-) Yay! Have a great week!
I love it so so much! It’s crazy how similar the layout of your bathroom is to ours. I have the same linen closet and we have our letterbox in it 😉 It looks awful though 😉 and I’d love to have our shower like this. And a sliding door but we can’t because there are too many switches 🙁
You outdid yourself.
Thanks Friend! We are exhausted but really pleased with the outcome! Lots of work and now comes lots of soaking in the bathtub lol! We moved the light switch outside (it’s on the other side of the wall now) so the barn door would not hit it. Thanks for checking in today!Xo
Hey There! Did you have a latch for the barn door? My husband has concerns that a barn door will not be a tight seal, therefore limiting the privacy! Thanks! I love your work!
What color grout did you use for the subway tiles?
Friend, this is INCREDIBLE!!!! I can’t believe alll the amazing work you guys did in six weeks! The floor and the towel ring are my fave!!!!!
Thanks for hopping over, Keila! I am very happy with this space! That towel ring..omg- when I saw it I knew that has to be in the bathroom! It was only a few dollars at Home Depot!:-) Xo
this is a DREAM bathroom and so very you! i love the mix of black, white, and wood- so awesome!
It is Cassie! I never thought it will look like this one day lol! Thanks for checking in! XXOO
What a transformation! I just love the color of the vanity.
