A ‘Fixer Upper’ Inspired Bathroom

Main Image

Chip and Joanna Gaines, is there a more perfect couple in the world of home makeovers? The answer is very obviously, no. After we closed on our home in December, we knew we had to channel our inner Chip and Jo to make some home improvement decisions. Our 1920’s tudor is brimming with charm. While charm is marvelous, an outdated living environment is not. We are rocking one and a half baths in our new home, aka ONE full bath. This meant we really needed to maximize our bathroom space and functionality. Weeks, and a number of home improvement stores, later, I am thrilled with the results.

Marble look alike floor tile & shower wall floor tile

LOVE this medicine cabinet mirror


I wanted the room to feel spa like without being too sterile. I chose white subway tiles for the shower (Fixer Upper anyone?) and a really unique marble rectangular tile for the floor. In order to bring an additional touch of color, all the grout is a light gray instead of your standard white. Plus, gray will stand the test of time better than pristine white! We kept the sink and the toilet, but upgraded the medicine cabinet, which is just the coolest piece ever. We also bought this bamboo cabinet for storage and a neutral color addition. For the past couple of months I’ve been upgrading our towels. My favorite is Nate Berkus’ Target line. I purchased bath towels (not the bath sheet) and hand towels in true white. On the walls are Benjamin Moore colors Sea Salt and Imperial White. Sea Salt is a perfect accent, not too bland and not overpowering. We also redid our half bath with the same tile and paint colors. It feels bizarre to say I am in love with how our bathrooms look, but I am. We managed to brighten up and streamline a relatively small space without making it too modern or too anything. Happy decorating!
