Upstairs bathroom – hamptons house renovation reveal

I want to share with you our bathroom renovation.  We did this before we moved in.  It’s the upstairs bathroom so we thought it should be done prior to moving in as plumbers, tilers and builders would be going up and down stairs with toilets, tiles and other things trashing our new floors and carpet.

It’s not a huge bathroom, just enough room for a shower, toilet and basin.  So we wanted to make it bright and feel spacious.

These are our before pics.

It was neat and tidy, but not our style.  We had previously remodelled two bathrooms and knew exactly what direction to go in.  However, we needed to watch our costs on this project as we still had the whole house to renovate.

As demolition began, it was time to source our fixtures and fittings.  Most of our purchases were made online which saves time and everything is delivered to your door which is an added bonus!  The toilet was bought from Bunnings (one of my favourite stores) and the vanity was purchased from Gianni & Costa.

I’ve done a bit of tiling here and there, nothing this big and challenging, so this job needed the skill and expertise of a professional tiler.  We still painted the walls, trims and ceiling.  It’s a shame I don’t have a before photo of the ceiling.  It was dark timber panelling, (like in the Norska ads in the 80’s).


Anyway, I digress.

We love the current trend of matt black fittings, so we chose all fittings from shower head to towel rails in matt black and love the classic look of marble.  Being the ever budget conscious people we are, we went for ‘marble look’ tiles.  They look amazing together.

We are yet to install the towel rails and toilet roll holder.  We also need to get a mirror custom made to fit on the wall, but you can use your imagination.

Here are the after photos.
