Pam and Darryl approached their bathroom remodel the right way.
- They set a budget
- Decided what part of the remodel they would have professionally done (tile work and flooring) which part they would do themselves (everything else!)
- They selected finishes and fixtures, tile and hardware before they started. They knew everything would be in stock and available.
I always recommend choosing a paint color last. It seems like backward advice to most people, but paint can be tinted to match virtually anything. Your color options for almost everything else are limited. So it made sense that Pam selected her shower and floor tiles first since there aren’t as many color choices.
She wanted a neutral palette but neutral doesn’t mean boring or dull. Pam selected a soft beige glass tile insert to go with basic off-white 4 x 4 ceramic tiles. A stamped listello, although in the same color, sets off the border. This simple border gives the tub a beautiful accent without a big price tag.
They decided on a vinyl floor tile (12” x 12”) that’s “groutable”. What a great product. The texture and grout give you the look of natural stone at the fraction of the cost. You get the ease of installation without the seams. Brilliant!
For their counter, they selected a solid surface material with an integrated sink. It’s easy to clean and care for. It’s neutral with a bit of texture and will go with any wall and vanity color.
Next phase is paint and accessories and finishing touches.
