Since it’s almost time for the boys bathroom renovation reveal I thought I would show you guys how we put it all back together after we tore it all apart. Or maybe I should say how the contractors helped us put it back together.
After gutting the bathroom the first step was to install the drywall around the shower and then install shower pan. The vanity was also installed before the new flooring. We waited for about 5 weeks for vanity to be made but it was well worth it. I love how it turned out and the colour is just what I envisioned.
The next step was to get the granite counter top ordered. While we waited for the granite to be ready the tile guys came and installed the flooring and the shower tile. For the shower we picked a nice clean plain white subway tile. The tile guy installed it in the one-third pattern to give it a little flair. We decided on a white floor tile with a nice grey/blue vein running through it. The installer used a neat leveling system to install it and it turned out great and looks amazing!
Once the granite was installed it was time for the plumber in to install the toilet, faucets and shower head. The granite guys installed the gorgeous under mount sink as well.
Looking so good! I am so glad we thought to install those shower niches. They are so useful and eliminates the need for a shower caddy.
The last step was to get the shower doors installed.
Unfortunately after a week or so we noticed a couple of cracked tiles where the door was attached. This set us back another few weeks because the shower door installer had to remove the door and then the tile guy needed to return to do the repair. Then the door installer returned to put the door back on. Such a process! Then we all prayed that no more cracks appeared!
Doesn’t even look like a crack does it? At first I thought it maybe pencil marks from the shower door installer but upon further inspection…..cracked! Anyway we got it all fixed up and then that was it for the trades people.
Kevin and I were left on our own to seal the grout, install the door and window trim, paint and caulk around the sink and shower. We took our time with this…about 3 months. Guess we didn’t feel like doing anything over the summer or we were just lazy! The bathroom was perfectly functional during this time so the boys were not without a working bathroom.
