Canal House - Post 2 (The Guest House Bathroom)

Hey! Our canal house renovation is in full swing and I'm taking you along for the ride.

If you like home renovation, then you're in for a treat because this is a massive project! If not, that's OK - I've made it my New Year's Intention to post more on this blog about life, love, wedding plans, fashion, food, fun, anything and everything that's spreading joy. So hopefully one of those topics will peak your interest.

We are well underway in the demolition phase of the main house, but for those of you who follow me on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, you know that we are finished with the remodel of the guest house and the sunroom. So I want to share that with you!

One of the areas of the guest house that was just atrocious was the bathroom. Well, let's be honest, the entire guest house was in really bad shape, but the bathroom and kitchen particularly grossed me out. :) So I want to share those with you first.

We wanted a really clean, fresh approach to the bathroom and we had a major need for beauty product storage...for obvious reasons (Guapo needed space for 2 products, so I'll let you figure out why we needed so much storage).

So here's what we did. (Product links below the video)

We demolished the entire original bathroom and built a simple, modern bathroom that should stand the test of time with the every changing style trends.

We chose a Black Honey Comb floor from Floor & Decor and while we were there we picked up white subway tiles that we styled in a vertical direction.

Inside the shower we used an Shower Organizer which is strong enough to hold all of my beauty products and pulls in the black from Door Knob

The Faucet is one of my favorite features, as I find it to be a really appealing shape. The wall accessories like the Towel Rack etc have been bought but not yet hung.

The vanity was bought from one of our favorite kitchen & bath stores in Miami called Maison K&B.

The medicine cabinet was a Home Depot find and Guapo actually cut through our drywall and inserted it so it more like a built in. This created a ton of storage for us. The light fixture is also a Home Depot find and I opted for some dimmable edison bulbs.

The shower curtain was something I picked up one day while shopping in Home Goods and the Bath Mat is as well.

The walls are painted Chantilly Lace from Benjamin Moore. Guapo uses this soft white in about 90% of his high end homes, so when in doubt, go with Chantilly Lace. :)

Things we still need to add: I'd like to move the faux orchid out and replace it with a piece of artwork on the wall. I'm thinking something Palm Beach (ish). What do you think? We need to hang the towel rack and I'm going to replace the bath mat to something more fluffy to bring out the texture on the shower curtain.

More to come...on life, love and renovations.

Very nice! I would consider as well putting a picture over the toilet to infuse some color into the room. Plus it is something you can easily remove if you change your mind. We have also put a medicine cabinet which was intended to be hung on the wall into the wall which is so much better because it does not extend out too far over the sink. Sincerely, a fellow remodeler/decorator with a contractor husband - they are the best!
