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 exact tile we used) make sure to check out my blog post. I took lots of photos along the way :)
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.
Then we covered the floor with backer board.
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. If you have any questions or curious on how we did this, make sure to check out my blog post because chances are, I answered your questions in it!
