Children Toilet Self-importance Reno

We not too long ago up to date our major flooring toilet that’s sandwiched between the youngsters’s rooms (we don’t have a powder room). So whereas it must be sensible for them to make use of, we additionally wished it to look a bit nicer for friends. We took out the crumbling vainness with its granite prime and stainless faucet and upgraded to a a lot prettier grey vainness with matte black {hardware} and a matte black faucet. And at last, we had the tile painted a contemporary, vibrant white.

Self-importance Earlier than

Thomas likes to say that our home is crammed with “the Lowe’s particular.” Recall that the home was renovated by a flip investor and I purchased it not realizing a factor about high quality. Every part appeared new to me. Thomas, who does renos and new builds day in and day trip, has a a lot keener eye for the finer particulars. So we’re slowly chipping away at upgrading a number of the beauty objects in our home, from exterior doorways to vanities. 

Word the nook on the ground the place the wooden had mildewed away from the entire splashing that comes from the children’ bathtub. And be aware the cat hook that was alleged to be a hand towel bar that no visitor might ever discover.

Earlier than: Sink and Faucet

And right here’s a close-up of the sink and tap again once we had the kid-friendly extender on for Birch earlier than he might attain the sink. I actually don’t love all-in-one taps!

Selecting A New Self-importance

We truly purchased one other vainness for this room first. When it arrived, we knew we’d made a mistake as a result of the vainness prime wasn’t hooked up to the bottom, and the entire thing was assemble your self. So we despatched it again and appeared for one thing already constructed that had extra of a furnishings really feel. We checked out tons and tons of sorts and simply couldn’t determine! We debated white toilet vs. pop of grey vs. daring navy with gold {hardware} and went in circles for weeks.

I’m unsure what toilet designers would say about our alternative, however I’m pleased with the top consequence! We selected the Moro 30″ Vanity at Pottery Barn. We determined to be a bit bolder with the grey over a white vainness whereas not going completely daring with navy. (Despite the fact that 90% of our home is grey – lol!) I really like that it virtually seems to be muted purple in some gentle!

The Reno: Throughout

So far as toilet remodels go, this one wasn’t dangerous. We have been out of fee for a day in between taking out the outdated vainness and the plumber putting in the brand new faucet. 

The vainness stayed in our lounge after which Mazen’s room for a few week whereas we obtained every part prepared for set up.

Wanting empty!

Thomas drilled holes within the again for the plumbing after which he had me assist set it over these pipes. That factor was HEAVY and we barely obtained it on! Then we had his plumber come and do the hook ups. (I’m positive Thomas might have figured it out, however he lets the tradesmen do what they do greatest!)

The New Faucet

The tap was a straightforward alternative! We went with Delta Faucet Ashlyn in a matte black. I adore it! The peak of the tap and the depth of the sink are a lot improved from the earlier one.

Portray The Tiles

You’ll be able to see that our toilet tiles have been as soon as blue and have been painted white when the earlier proprietor up to date the house. The outdated vainness’s silicone glue ripped the paint a bit alongside the highest edge. That is a type of “open a can of worms” issues that we didn’t anticipate. But additionally, as soon as we obtained the brand new white quartz vainness prime put in, the tiles appeared SO YELLOW. We knew a contemporary coat of paint was the subsequent step. 

This is the paint we used for the tiles. 

The wall paint coloration is Valspar Winter in Paris.

Toilet Self-importance Set up Ideas

Make certain your vainness is already assembled

We knew we wished a strong piece and made the dumb mistake of ordering one which was particleboard the primary time. Not having to fret about screws or gluing the highest on made this course of a lot simpler. 

You’ll want no less than two sturdy adults to put the vainness over the plumbing, however three can be higher

Wanting again we must always have requested a pal to assist us as a result of the 2 of us attempting to put a heavy piece completely over two plumbing pipes was actually actually laborious. I used to be so anxious Thomas was going to drop the vainness on my palms as I guided it into the holes! Alas we did it with no bother, however having three individuals assist place the vainness would have been a lot simpler. 

Put together to open a can of worms

Another element to say is that our bathe/tub tile is definitely new and a barely totally different shade of white. It’s not an ideal match for our new paint coloration. We matched the vainness prime (which you see) as an alternative of the bathtub tile (which is hidden by the curtain). There’s now a line the place the bathtub tile meets the painted tile that wasn’t as apparent earlier than with the outdated paint coloration. Whereas I’d love for all of it to match, we aren’t going to tear out or paint new tile, so it must keep for now. Fortunately the bathe curtain hides the transition nicely. 

We are able to’t drill into the tile for a hand towel bar

Effectively we CAN however we’re selecting to not for worry of it cracking, so I added a sticky black matte command hook to the tile to function a hand towel bar for now. The children often simply use their tub towels to dry their palms as a result of they’re decrease and in attain. 

Select a conceit with a drawer!

I a lot choose to make use of a drawer to retailer further Who Gives A Crap toilet paper than have a tower of rolls within the cupboard.
