I recently completed the renovation of a bath in a 1920s cottage.The before post is here and I did some planning and inspiration gathering here.
A little background on the house-
The May house is a 1920’s cottage with three bedrooms and two baths. The largest of the two bathrooms is on the second floor. All of the bedrooms are upstairs which makes that one bathroom on the second level pretty important. The upstairs bathroom did not have a shower, lacked storage and was of course totally 80s complete with oversized whirlpool tub and shiny brass fixtures.
Everything was removed including the entire floor,
the 20-year old particle board vanity was replaced by a custom vanity with a carrera marble counter top.
We installed PVC wainscotting ordered here, it looks just like wood but is completely waterproof.
To gain the storage that we needed we converted the awkward, empty nook below the slanted ceiling in to a storage cabinet with shelving,
I brought the wrong lens with me so I didn’t have the proper range so you can’t see BUT we kept the window in the shower. I decided to make a fixed window, no grids with obscured glass to eliminate working/moving parts that would be subjected to water and we trimmed the vinyl window in Azek which is a wood composite that won’t rot. I’ll let you know how it holds up.
A rain can showerhead was installed in the ceiling.
Had to get a new faucet,
The affordable octagonal tile everyone loves with gray grout. The tile was purchased at Lowes.
The wall color is Benjamin Moore’s Palladian Blue. I thought about reducing it but in the end decided to go full strength and I love it.
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!

Such a great renovation. Everything element compliments each other down to the towel hooks. Nice job!
Do you recall what the name of the color of grey grout was with the bathroom floor tile?
Yes, please tell me the color/manufacturer of the gray grout. Thank you!
Hey Beth- I use TEC Power Grout typically and it’s Silverado.
What color is the vanity? Is it a bright white?
The white used on the custom vanity is Benjamin Moore’s Simply White.
