Bathroom Makeover

My wife and I wanted a snazzier look for the guest bath in our house in Ashland, MA. I’ve long been a DIYer and working with tile is always fun. Plus the best part was getting to do some demolition. What guy doesn’t like to break something down in order to put up something better?

So we decided to tile over the whole room, walls included, which were just sheetrock and the floor which just had a simple builder’s tile.

I also used my electrician skills to install a dual bulb heat lamp (500W total) with a fan above the standing space at the sink. The control is that dual switch you see in the first picture.

As you can also see, I changed the faucet to something a little classier than a standard faucet.

I don’t have the space for the pics, but breaking out the floor tile left the underlayment in poor shape so I also had to install new plywood first and then retile.

I’ve given you a beforepicture of the same wal as shown in the first picture and a beforepic, sorta, of the floor as it was undergoing demolition.

BTW,I kept the toilet in place until I had to take it out and keep the bathroom functional to a degree. Once it was out, the room was my construction zone until the day I went back into operation.
This was a great project from start to finish.
