Our basement bathroom was as builder grade as it gets. We built our house in October 2015, and it already looked dated a couple years later. From the glued on frame-less mirror and dark wood base cabinet, to the standard porcelain light fixture… It ‘had-ta-go’.
I love the look of full tiled bathrooms! They feel so fancy and over all, it’s a huge statement. I wanted to add some color though, instead of it being all stark white– and by color, I mean dark charcoal walls. I thought the dark walls and white subway tiles would be a good contrast together! I love the end result!
I started by unhooking pumping and tearing out the vanity. It was pretty easy… until I got to the mirror. *biggest eye roll possible*. Mirrors should never be glued to the wall.
For a new vanity, I went to Lowe’s and narrowed it down to these two. I thought the dark vanity looked too similar to the one I just took out, so I went with the white vanity to go with this gold sink faucet!
I stopped tiling about half way up with the subway tile, added the white bullnose tile to the top row, and finished it off with a charcoal grout. I love a good black and white combo!
Final details included adding hardwares and installing the new light! I got this frosted glass sconce from Light Society and it matches the round brass mirror perfectly. Light Society had sooooo many choices at really affordable prices!
It was a fun makeover to do and only took a weekend! I love how it turned out and it goes so well with the bar right outside the door!
