Creative Small Bathroom Remodel With Slate and Glass Tile

Our project house was a mess when we first moved in. An exciting mess. Exciting because there was only one way any update could turn out…better! My creative small bathroom remodel added a few family friendly features and a little more storage. My design kept my small space uncluttered and open and that gave it the look of a larger space.
We live at the beach and I wanted something unique and natural. I choose slate tiles and glass subway tiles. It was a perfect combination!
The glass top sink is unique and not overpowering in the small bath. The cabinet is compact but still added two large storage shelves inside.
This is what the bath looked liked the day we moved in. The tub was original to our 1950's house...did I mention it was black with dirt? Eeek.
We gutted the room and started over. It was a big job but still budget friendly.
I found this cool vanity on clearance at Home Depot. I fell in love with how the top and sink are one sheet of bent glass. I built the rest of the bath around my vanity. I used a few unusual items like slate for the walls and Schluters to edge the glass subway tiles. They were surprisingly inexpensive. We changed the angles of the tiles in the tub for an extra detail.
The little mediallions are sheets of metal squares that I cut up. We saved a fortune by doing this instead of buying ready made medallions.
We saved even more money by building our own niche with a marble floor threshold that was precut.
