Florida Home: Corridor Lavatory Rework

This rest room area was a six week overhaul that I completed only a few days earlier than I left Florida. As I discussed earlier within the yr, we purchased a home in Florida with plans to finally transfer there full time. I spent most of June and July there and tackled a couple of areas on the record of rooms to renovate.

The corridor rest room was a precedence as a result of it was very dated and likewise an area that everybody will find yourself utilizing, friends included. There are solely two bogs on this house and I needed this one to be a mix of mid century and coastal model and embrace a daring botanical wallpaper.


Once I began in June there was a monstrous florescent gentle fixture on the ceiling with an previous fan, a dated laminate prime self-importance, and dingy porcelain tile flooring.

Right here’s the area now!


Step one was eradicating that big gentle fixture which we employed skilled electricians to do. The toilet had no venting in it so the place the ceiling fan was once we added an LED gentle/fan combo and I had the electrician add new wires for sconces on both facet of the mirror.

The following step was eradicating the previous self-importance and changing the tile ground. The home was constructed within the Nineteen Sixties so I selected a basic white hexagon mosaic for the ground. As soon as the brand new ground was in, I put in the board and batten, then the self-importance, then the wallpaper.

I like to combine finishes in bogs so I blended white with gold this time. I repurposed the previous white towel rod and bought a rounded nook white mirror to enhance it. The tap, sconces, and hand towel bar are brushed brass. I really like how the form of the cupboard pulls mimics the form of the mid century sconces.




The wallpaper is a daring botanical motif, I picked a palm leaf sample to echo considerable number of palms in Florida. I put in it myself with cautious software. It’s not tough to do nevertheless it does take time to get it excellent.

This wallpaper required I add the adhesive myself, it’s not peel and stick or the sort that’s prepasted. I really like this model greatest since you add the paste to the wall with a curler and the paper goes on prime so for me it’s simpler to maneuver round to get the seams excellent. I’ll put a video on Reels to indicate all of the steps and one other for the DIY board and batten wall therapy.


On the other wall is similar board and batten wall therapy, the daring wallpaper, and this Gold Coast artwork print is framed above the towel bar.


I put in a protracted bathe curtain and liner with a hard and fast brushed brass rod, I like golden hue towards the blue and white. We didn’t change something out within the bathe however could change the white fiberglass liner with tile sooner or later.



As an alternative of drilling into that lovely teak self-importance I purchased a freestanding rest room paper roll holder. I additionally win the award for cutest waste bin ever! How nice is that this push prime can with its wooden tone prime and mid century legs? Lovable! I additionally changed the previous silver rest room flush deal with with a white one – these particulars matter to me!

I’m so happy with the way it turned out! It’s a stunning mixture of coastal and mid century model in basic blue and white, and the wooden self-importance provides lovely distinction.
