RENOVATION REVEAL: Susan and Carl's Pink Tile Guest Bathroom

Not every renovation is a total overhaul. When walls are structurally sound, the plumbing works where it is and the layout is functional, sometimes all a space needs is a refresh. That was the case with our client, Susan and Carl's, guest bathroom.

Don't get me wrong. The before pictures are pretty rough, but the bones of this bathroom were great and just needed some TLC.

**UPDATE: This renovation is now featured on Apartment Therapy.

Check out the full coverage here.


Couple of things to take note of from the 'before' images:

- Obviously, that pink wall tile is very pink. Susan and Carl were ready to see that go.

- The linoleum tile was lifting and pretty grimy.

- The walls had been opened previously to access a leak which originated from the shower.

- The bath fitter had exceeded its lifetime, and was also ready to go.

On the list of refresh projects:

- Pergo floors

- Subway tile bath enclosure

- New solid wood doors

- Trim, including a wainscoting towel hook accent

- Lighting fixtures

- Radiator cover

- Plumbing fixtures

- Painting
