Final Reveal on Our Half Bathroom

Final Reveal on Our Half Bathroom

But first let’s take a look at how our half bathroom looked when we moved in!

And here it is now!!

Final Reveal on Our Half Bathroom

I am so excited to finally show you our final reveal of our half bathroom.  This bathroom is an odd shape and small.  When I was planning for this space I wanted to make this bathroom look elegant and embrace the odd small shape.  To make it feel larger I painted the walls a very light grey, Halo by Benjamin Moore and the wainscoting is painted with White Dove by Benjamin Moore.  I love the soft contrast these two create and it has helped to really open up this space.

Lighting is a great design element for our half bathoom


Too often we over look the power of lighting.  There are so many beautiful light fixtures these days, not only do they provide light but they can also add a fun element to a space.  We hired an electrician to add a light above the toilet, to add more lighting to the bathroom. Everyone needs a chandelier over their toilet!!  This beautiful chandelier from Lighting Design Company was the perfect option for this!!

This particular light is from Elk lighting, unfortunately they have discontinued this light.  Which makes me so sad because I really LOVE it.  But here is a link to another option I love too.

For over our vanity we decided to go with this beautiful one light wall sconce in chrome from Lighting Design Company as well.  It is the perfect design element for this space.  The fun thing about these fixtures are you can move the arm to get it just perfect for your space.

I went with a light grey wood-look tile from Floor & Decor. Floor & Decor is a great option for flooring, they have great prices, a huge selection and their tile is great quality.  They even ship if you don’t have a store close to you!  You can read about my tour of Floor & Decor here

I went with this tile for a few reasons

  • This is a much easier tile to install on my own because it is installed in a brick like pattern rather then trying to match 4 corners.
  • The light color really helped to lighten up this space and make it feel larger
  • I love the wood look but the durability of tile is amazing

Decorative Finishes

Since this space is so small I wanted to add texture and color through my finishes.  I added the wainscoting for under $50 ( tutorial here.)  I added the peel and stick glass tile floor to ceiling to the little alcove where our sink sits. (tutorial here) .  I also painted our black mirror white instead of buying a new one (tutorial here)

There you have it folks!!

    How do you install a light and mirror over the glass tiles? A certain bit on a drill? It doesn’t shatter? I love this look and am hoping to do the floor to ceiling glass tiling around my bathroom vanity as well but I guess I just don’t understand it as well. Thank you!
