What would you do with this bathroom? Pics included
(Sorry, the pic is misleading, the toilet and sink have been reinstalled already, and grout has been put in; this pic is an earlier one)
DH and I want to remodel our bathroom in 1-3 months and we aren't sure what to do; we are new to this. This is our first home. We do, however, know what our goals are with this project:
- We want to maximize the amount of storage space in the bathroom while still having it feel as spacious as possible. It is a small bathroom but it doesn't have to feel cramped. There is a pre-existing floor-to-ceiling cabinet that is in excellent shape and just needs repainting and new hardware.
- Our budget is about $500. We will be doing all the labor ourselves. We have enough tile that we got for free to do the stall.
- We want to install a vanity to replace the stand-alone sink. We have a depth of only 13" to work with for this.
- We want this remodel to last for a long time and we want to do it right so that the climate in which we live (hot, humid over 70% of the year) doesn't wreck havoc on our bathroom.
- I want to replace the medicine cabinet mirror with just a mirror hung on the wall because I don't like how small and vertically misaligned the current mirror is. We cannot install a bigger medicine cabinet mirror because the wall studs are so close together.
Remodeling and other changes that has already been done:
1. New subflooring, tile and grout in floors
2. Some new paneling installed to replace damaged old paneling (this was pretty cheap)
3. Installed new light fixture ($60)
4. Installed medicine cabinet with mirror ($100)
5. Replaced toilet seat and lid with new ones ($20)
6. Installed towel rack ($30)
7. Installed curved shower rod for more space in stall, and new shower liner ($55)
But there's a lot we are clueless about. For example, what to do outside the stall? Do we put sheetrock in? Do we need a special sheetrock to prevent mold growth and rot? If not sheetrock, then what?
So what would you do with this bathroom? More pics coming in next post(s).
