Bathroom Remodel | Otsego, MN


Our full before and after master bathroom remodel. This was one of our our favorite remodeled rooms we have done so far! Jamie and I loved working on this room together and especially for how it turned out for having no clue on where to begin or what we were going to end up with when we first started the renovation.

We knew this master bathroom was going to take some time. And being it was our main bathroom we were going to be using everyday, we wanted it to be awesome!!
First, let's look back at what this bathroom once was. This home was built in 1976 and this bathroom was definitely right out of the 70s.

Being we weren't sure on how we wanted this room laid out we decided to start by gutting the entire room. Jamie started by removing the toilet, then the tiles, and then finally the walls.
Let the demolition begin...

Unlike the guest bathroom, Jamie removed these tiles by hand with a pry bar. He didn't need to use a hammer drill because these tiles were easily removable.

Behind these frames was the former shower and closet. As we mentioned, we had no idea how we wanted the layout of the bathroom to be, so Jamie thought is would be easiest to just tear the entire bathroom apart and take everything down so we could visualize a new layout and start fresh.

As we mentioned in our previous post on our herringbone flooring, we originally were going to lay white tile. However, when the white flooring tiles that we purchased from The Tile Shop didn't match the already placed white subway tiles in our shower, we opted to go with a dark wood looking tile. You can read all the details of laying our herringbone flooring on the blog.

We mastered our 1st DIY concrete countertop project. We were very happy on the look of how the countertop turned out. You can check out our blog post for how to DIY.

We installed white subway tiles to the ceiling to help make the shower look larger.

We were able to salvage some wood pieces from around the house and incorporate them into our new vanity. We ended up using a drawer piece that was originally used in the kitchen as desk drawers and built a new vanity around the drawers. With a little white paint, a new countertop, hardware, and faucets we were able to upcycle pieces from around the house and save a lot of money on buying a brand new vanity.
We purchased the new hardware from Menards and the new sinks and faucets from build.com.
