Our upstairs bathroom was designed in 1999 for two little boys. The “Boys' Bathroom” is big, served them well, and also served as the extra bathroom when we hosted a party or holiday event. But by 2021 the boys were grown it was WELL overdue for a spruce up. I decided to leave the tub and sink but upgrade just about everything else! I wanted a clean modern look but also not feminine as this is still used primarily by the men in the house.
Here's the before:
Here's a list of things I did.
- Painted the walls
- Painted the ceiling
- Painted the door
- Replaced the old baseboards
- Gel Stained the 90s builder grade cabinets
- New sink fixtures
- New bathtub fixtures
- New cabinet hardward
- New toilet handle to match new hardward
- New tile floor to replace 90s vinyl
- New light fixture
- Removed old mirror
- Stained new mirrors to match cabinets
- Retained the two cute characatures of the boys who used to use this bathroom circa 2000 when we built it.
It took about a month to complete, from Mother's Day to nearly Father's Day. I've linked the products below if you're looking to replicate this 90s Builder Grade Bathroom Update to 2021.
