This past month we took on the project of remodeling/redoing our master bathroom. Our house was built in 2010 so the the finishes are very brown. Since it's only 6 years old all we had to do was change out the finishes and use the existing layout of the bathroom. Here is a quick over view of how we tiled the floor, but if you want a VERY detailed tutorial on how we did it, what we used (including the

Here is the before picture. We had an tile linoleum in there. It didn't bad in there at all, we just wanted an updated look in there. Plus tile looks so much better than linoleum!

The first thing we did was take out the old flooring.

The next step was the tile, isn't it pretty?! We choose a nice cool gray to go in there and I love them. Want to know the exact tile we used, check out my blog post!

Once all the tile was in it was time to grout the tiles. We used a lighter gray (even though in the picture is looks dark, it was wet).

Once the grout was dry, we did some finishing touches and it was done! Isn't it pretty?! I love it so much more than the linoleum, so much more! I also painted in there with a nice warm gray.

      I’ve wanted to do a Back Splash in my kitchen for a long time but the “cutting “ makes me nervous! I don’t have a cutter to cut the tile around the window and outlets 😩

      I love the way your floors came out, great job! I love those tiles, my daughter has them in her kitchen that look like wood.

    Did you have to remove the toilet and put in something to raise it to level of new tile?

      Yes. We got a new toilet and then we had to get a ring that had an extension because the tile was higher than the plywood
