Robin’s Bathroom Makeover Reveal {Part One}


I am soooo excited to share this bathroom makeover reveal with you!

As you know, my husband went into business for himself this past year.  He started an insulation and remodeling business.  We thought he would do more insulation than remodeling, but it has actually been the opposite.

Part of the reason is because of my blog.  Many of his remodeling jobs have come from people who read my blog. Smile

Like Robin.

Robin has been reading my blog, and my sister’s blog, for a while now, and when she read that Cy was starting his own remodeling business, she asked him to give her master bathroom a makeover.

Robin is precious, and it was awesome meeting her in person!

Today, I want to show you what her bathroom looked like the day Cy and I went to her house, and some of the plans she/we had for the bathroom

Here is what the bathroom looked like as soon as you walked in…

One of the first things Robin told us that she wanted to change in her bathroom was the flooring.

She also wanted to remove the vanity and install a new double sink vanity.

I suggested that she tear out the small linen closet beside the vanity to make the bathroom feel more spacious.

On the right side of the bathroom, there was a big, bulky shower right in the middle of the wall.  Robin wanted that shower torn out and a new one built in the right corner of the bathroom.

She also wanted to get rid of the big tub.  I definitely agreed with this decision! Smile

Removing the tub would make a huge difference in this space.

You can see in the picture below how the shower wall juts out and takes up a lot of space.

The only thing that we were not going to change in this bathroom was the toilet.  It was going to stay where it was, but that area would get a little update.

We also left the walk in closet alone.  It stayed put.

Cy and his crew got busy on this bathroom!  They got rid of the old flooring and corner tub.

It is amazing how much larger the bathroom began to look with the shower moved down to the corner!

Robin wanted an arch in the shower, so Cy custom built one for her.

He installed beautiful 12×12 tiles on the shower wall along with an accent piece.

For the new floor, Cy installed the tile on the diagonal which visually makes the floor space look larger.
