So we just finished our extremely protracted DIY bathroom renovation, and I am thrilled. Here are two before-and-after shots. Now, on to the kitchen!

RE: Before and after

It looks wonderful! Do you have any more shots of those wonderful new cabinets? Congratulations.

RE: Before and after

Yes, more pics pleas! Looks good from what I can see!

RE: Before and after

Looks great!

RE: Before and after

Gorgeous! Would love to know the details.

RE: Before and after

And I love it that you have outfitted your room with grab rails! I want to see more too, such as the cabinets, floor, window, shower and the transition to the room from the shower. Lovely.

RE: Before and after

Thanks all! It was a lot of work, and took 8 months total. (Ouch.) My husband did everything himself. We gutted everything and installed new subfloor, all new plumbing and electric, Schluter-KERDI shower system, Schluter-DITRA floor underlayment, Schluter-RONDEC edges, etc...

We also incorporated a really cool feature which I will post later, which is a slide-out towel rack in its own cabinet with 2 fans and a humidity sensor to always dry the towels quickly! (You can see the door just the right of the shower).

Here are the details. I'll take some more pics too.

Vanity, counter, sinks, wall cabinet, shower door: All from Porcelanosa
Sink faucets: Toto Upton Collection
Shower fixtures: Kohler Purist Collection
Shower wall tile: Atlas Concorde Grey Fibra 12x24
Shower floor: Island Stone Himarchal Black
Bathroom floor: Atlas Concorde Tema 18x18 Antracite
Medicine cabinets and mirros (2 each): Century Bathworks
Towel cabinet door: Ikea Effectiv

The only thing we haven't picked yet is backsplash tile.

P.S. Enduring, the grab bars were only in the old bathroom.

RE: Before and after

Beautiful and sleek! I look forward to seeing your towel cupboard.
