What a fast & furious six weeks it has been! What started as a half-bathroom in the dining room was magically transformed into a full bathroom off the master bedroom. As with any renovation, I encountered hurdles, delays, and problems, but, in the end, the end result was even better than I expected! I partnered with Jeffrey Court to totally transform this awkward space into a functional, beautiful space! I’m so excited to share this renovation reveal with you all!

Since the previous owner had removed the existing shower and relocated the door, my first hurdle was locating the plumbing and original doorway. Adding a shower back to the space was essential to create function and add value to the home. We were able to utilize existing plumbing & drains to add that back! To create some fun design, I opted to add a steel & wood sliding barn door since the space is kind of small, and I love the dramatic impact it added!
The Design Is In The Details
They say the devil is in the details- so is the design. Even though this bathroom is pretty small, I wanted it to offer a big design impact! From tile to vanities to lighting, all those details were crucial to creating a cohesive design. I chose a stock vanity and spray painted the handles to match the brass faucet. That’s one of my staple tips: you can give stock items a twist with just a little paint or small changes! I also decided to incorporate mixed metal finishes in this space, and I’m totally in love it!
Since this is a flip, I wanted to keep neutral colors to appeal to the masses, but I wanted to showcase that not all flips have contractor-grade finishes! Without a doubt, the Jeffrey Court Fiore tile created just what I was wanting: a jaw-dropping design! That floor to ceiling tile way is far from your standard contractor-grade finish. With it’s warm greige color and classic pattern, I think it offers a much-needed design in the small space.
I wanted to keep a neutral, greige finish for the floor tile as well. And while I could have chosen some basic ceramic tile, I wanted to create a more luxurious feel so I chose Jeffrey Court’s Stone Grey Limestone. I debated with using a herringbone pattern like I did in the last Jeffrey Court Renovation Challenge, but since the wall had so much movement, I kept the pattern simple & classic. The limestone has natural veins and coloration that I just love!
When flipping a house, I try to think about each space & the new owners. Will this be easy to use? Will this stand up to the test of time? Was this made well? Is this functional? I tried to answer all of those questions with the design in this bathroom. The vanity offers much-needed storage in a small bathroom, the added shower not only adds value but function, the neutral colors offer a classic design, and the finishes & tile aren’t your run-of-the-mill contractor quality.
What’s most important to you when you’re designing a space? Quality? Function? Price? They’re all critical in a flip, and with the help of Jeffrey Court, I think I aced this one- and I hope buyers agree!
