How many of you have been to the Better Homes and Garden website?
How many of you subscribe to their emails?
I do, and I love them.
Their website is FULL of amazing inspiration for every room of your home and for every season of the year.
Recently, in one of my emails, there was an article titled, “Before and After: Bathroom Renovations.”
I clicked on the link, and I was amazed at some of these beautiful renovations.
I wanted to share some of them with you.
(All of the following pictures are from Better Homes and Garden’s website. Click on each picture to see the source.)
The first bathroom is overwhelmed and dated by the wallpaper. But by adding some bead board/board and batten, fresh white paint, and some brown on the walls, this bathroom is a show stopper!
This next bathroom was definitely in need of an update. The pink tiles and the blue carpet on the floor (that’s carpet, isn’t it?) had to go. The owners also knocked out a small closet to make room for a bigger shower and tub.
The new bathroom has fresh white subway tile on the walls and a gorgeous octagonal tile on the floor. What a difference!!
Here is the other side of that same bathroom. The wall paper and dated sink had to go! (That sink looks a lot like the sink in one of our bathrooms, btw.)
They carried the subway tile from the shower onto the rest of the walls in the bathroom to create a brighter look. I love the updated dark counter top and fixtures too. Beautiful!
It’s hard to believe it is the same bathroom!
The next bathroom is definitely dark and dated. Dark wood vanity and trim, wallpaper border, and brassy gold mirror are not making the most of this space.
Look at the after! New light blue paint, large silver framed mirror, a fresh coat of paint on the vanity, and they have a brand new bathroom. They didn’t even have to change the sinks or the faucets. Love it!
Here is the other side of that same bathroom. They took out the old whirlpool tub, and replaced it white a walk in tiled shower.
Next, here is a small bathroom that needed a new look. Now, I am not a huge fan of the paint color they picked for this makeover, but that is just a personal preference. Other than that, they did an amazing job updating the space. Notice the tile in the bathroom is the same. Just new a new paint color and updated window treatment completely changed the look of this space.
This last bathroom has a window in the shower, just like the bathrooms do in our home. They do add a lot of light to the room, but I still think it is crazy to have a window in the shower.
Look at that gorgeous sink in the “after” picture. I am kind of wanting a sink like that in the bathroom that will eventually be our next guest bathroom. The towel basket beneath the sink is great for storage.
I also love how they have bead board 3/4 way up the wall.
These photos are so inspiring to me!
They show me how it is possible to update a space with not a lot of work.
