Bathroom renovation is a very popular home improvement. And a little can go a long way when it comes to upgrading your bathroom. Gwen Hefner knows all about home renovation. She writes about decor and home renovation on her blog The Makerista. Here she shows us how she and her husband made her bathroom look fantastic, and did it without spending a lot. Like many couples, in our home improvement efforts we somehow put the master bedroom and bathroom at the end of the to-do list. In the last five years we’ve renovated every other room in our home, and it was finally time to tackle our personal space. I’m sorry we didn’t do it sooner. When brainstorming this space, we had a few things to consider. As far as functionality, the layout works for us and we didn’t see a need to move anything around. We never use the corner hot tub, but for resale purposes we decided to keep it in–it seems like something no one uses but everyone thinks they want. The room has wonderful, natural light and I wanted to play off of that, keeping things bright and clean. I also knew we wanted to try and think outside the box to create something with items anyone can get, but make them feel custom. That’s where the flooring came in. With a budget of $2,000, we dove in to create a classic space that still packs a lot of personality. We decided to cover the walls with tongue and groove boards and classic subway tile. There is something to be said for being able to easily wipe down bathroom walls, and tile is great for that. The boards come with a bead detail running down the center of them, so we simply flipped them over and used the back to get a wider plank. In order to create a seamless look from one material to the other (the boards are thicker than the tile), it was necessary to build up the wall behind the tile. Adding a layer of drywall made the transition seamless. The Walls We started by laying the wall tile, followed by gluing and nailing on the boards, and then priming and painting them. The boards have knots in them and you can choose to fill them in with some wood-filler, but it wasn’t something that bothered me, so we left them alone. After two coats of primer we used an off-white paint to match to the tile. The black liner tile helps to give your eye a place to rest on the wall and also ties in with the floors. The Tile Floor Next we moved on to the floor. These tiles were definitely the most time-consuming part of this project, but the application was rather easy. Figuring out how much tile was necessary was a bit tricky. I determined the percentage of each color in a single pattern and then used that percentage on the total square footage of the space. It ended up that I needed three boxes of white, two boxes of antique, and one box of black for our 50-foot floor. The pattern is bold, but classic, and it was a fraction of the cost of more high-end tiles. The Vanity To pick up on the black tile, we painted the vanity a charcoal color. The nickel knobs we added tie in well with the chrome towel bar and toilet paper holder. Lighting and the Mirror I thought we would definitely be replacing the builder-grade counter tops, but it’s amazing how adding the sconces and changing the faucet and mirror gave the countertop new life. Without doing a total bathroom overhaul, we were able to create a space that feels classic, with custom touches–all on a modest budget. Check out more bathroom ideas here on The Home Depot Blog.

The towel bar is 24 in. long, therefore the fabric length needs to be 24 in. to match. However, based on the size of books needed to be held, cut the depth to properly hold. For example, a 5 in. book would need a 4 in. depth.
