Bathroom Remodel On A Budget

bathroom remodel, bathroom renovation, remodel ideas

We recently completed a remodel in our upstairs bathroom! We have enjoyed the transformation so much, so I wanted to share the bathroom remodel with you and some of the items we purchased.

A horrible leak is what jumpstarted this project for us, but I’m kind of glad it happened, otherwise, we may have still been dragging our feet to get started. If you are new here, we bought this house about 1.5 years ago and will be slowly updating it over the next couple years. It’s not our forever home, so we’re working to make smart updates that will serve us for years to come as we potentially make it a rental property down the road.

Now for all the bathroom remodel details! Dallas peeps, we used a local company to complete the remodel. I linked them here.

All About The Tile

Floor Tile

We selected a black hexagon tile that would add some character to the bathroom. I wanted something really cool looking without spending a lot of money. This is the exact tile that we purchased. They are 4 inches and only .79 per piece. We opted for a black grout (#10 Black Mapei) because I knew that keeping a lighter color grout clean in my son’s bathroom would be impossible. Plus, black just looks better in my opinion.

Shower Tile

In the shower, we did a vertical stacked bond using this tile. I loved the rougher edges and unique look that this type of stacking gives. I of course first saw this on Pinterest, and wanted to recreate it in my own space. We used a white grout in the shower (#38 Avalanche). The black and white contrast looks really good together.

Bathroom Accessories

We purchased our faucets off of Amazon and have been really happy with them so far. I am updating this post almost a full year after installing everything, and can tell you 100% that these were a great investment. The price point is great if you are remodeling on a budget. I linked everything below for easy shopping.

Faucets – Amazon

Shower Head – Amazon

Mirror – Hobby Lobby but I linked similar

I searched for months trying to find the perfect parts for the bathroom. I am really happy with how everything came together. We found this bathroom mat while shopping at Target one night and it really pulls the whole space together! I am still constantly adding little details even since these photos were taken!

Bathroom Lighting

I found our bathroom light on Wayfair! It is usually always on sale for under $120 and comes in a few other finishes. We went with black of course, but the brass option is also gorgeous. I love this light so much! It’s a great option that could work in almost any bathroom.

Bathroom Hardware

We purchased our hardware from Lowes! We only needed a few pieces so this was a small investment. If you are on the fence about whether or not to get hardware, I definitely think it elevates the look of the space. Go for it!

Cabinets and Paint

We had the cabinets custom made by 34 Oaks Fine Cabinetry in Dallas, TX, they are also doing our kitchen remodel and I can’t wait to show you. We selected a very simple white quartz countertop for this room and it is really easy to keep clean. I didn’t want anything to compete too much with the black hexagon floor we chose.

The cabinet color is also a really special detail. The color is so unexpected. I originally wanted all black and white, and Brooke Fish, designer that we worked with, suggested doing a color for the cabinets and I’m so glad I trusted her.

Cabinet Color: Sherwin Williams Mount Etna

Bathroom Details

I can’t wait to do more rooms in the house. My creative wheels have started to spin for sure! You can shop some of the bathroom details above, I’ve also linked the tile we used below. Thank you for reading!
