Our First Renovation: Bathroom Inspiration


Our new home is slowly starting to look less like a construction zone and more like a place people might actually live someday. The kitchen is still sort of an empty box, but the bathroom walls are covered in marble subway tile, and the shower has a real floor!

All this planning had us pinning away–looking hex, subway, and mosaic marble. Black, brass, and chrome fixtures. So many decisions to make and ones we’ll live with for a while. Most decisions have been made, and the past few days, we’ve been trying to figure out paint colors and kitchen lighting. It’s been fun!



Bathroom updates!

It’s so exciting to see this place slowly turn into a home. The bathroom won’t have much storage but with floors like that, who cares? I’m sure I’ll be back in a few weeks with more updates since we’re supposed to move in a few weeks. Wish us luck!

What bathroom trends are you into right now? And what are your thoughts on brass hardware? I love it but opted against it since it feels a little too trendy and I was scared I’d get sick of it after a year.

    Love the choice of tiles! I love neutral bathrooms: greys, whites, and maybe some black. I like seeing brass on other's bathrooms, but I too feel that for me it's trendy and something that I might not love forever.

    LOVING subway and penny tile in bathrooms. Brass is amazing; but totally agree that in a year or two it'll feel like you live in a beautiful modern marble bathroom with 1990s brass hardware....then again brass is so much better/classier now. That matte black is amazing. What did you settle on?
