In this video Tara shows us how she remodeled an old bathroom using colors that will stand the test of time. In the past, we had pink and blue bathroom colors during the sixties, country look during the seventies and baths with slate walls during the eighties. However, the only color in the bathroom that will stand the test of time is the clean and timeless white.
One simple trick to change the appearance of the whole bathroom is to change the old vanity with a modern shaving cabinet. In order to safely break down the big mirror above the vanity, you can cover as much of the mirror as you can with tape that’s going to hold the big shards of glass. Safety gear is an absolute must and by gently hitting the glass with a mallet you can take it off in one piece (almost).
Often the wet areas in old homes are filled with asbestos. If you’re not sure of the walls in your place, get them tested with an asbestos test. It’s as easy as picking up a test kit and sending off a sample and waiting for the results. Be safe before you start any work.
With a jack hammer you can rip up the bathroom tiles on the floor or take out substantial things like the hob. Hiring a jack hammer by the day is around $114/day but it is very helpful for this hard work.
Another great decoration idea is to utilize the hidden storage area within the stud walls. Wall niches have become a real design trend lately. Not only do they look cool but they really make the most of the available space and are especially great in the bathroom where it’s a small room to begin with.
The tiles used for our all-white bathroom are plain satin tiles from the tones range which can be placed on both the floor and the walls.
Once your floor tiles are down and in place, start from the bottom and work your way up. Grouting is pretty easy using a rubber-pointed trowel. Apply the grout on an angle, just the amount you need, let it go off and then wipe it over with a damp sponge.
And as far as color goes, Tara has chosen white grout for the wall tiles and for practical reasons gray on the floor.
