This has been a crazy week with my laundry room and downstairs bath tile being replaced.
Today, I’ll show you how the laundry room turned out since the bathroom is not finished yet.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, the tile guys did their job and are finished.
It’s just that I couldn’t leave well enough alone and had a brilliant idea to paint the bathroom vanity.
If I EVER get done with that disaster of a project, I will show you that room.
For now, we will enjoy the laundry room.
If you’ve been following along, you might remember that this is what the tile floor looked like before:
The tiles were supposed to be white – yet always looked dirty.
Here is a shot as we were clearing the room.
As you can see, we had a small setback by the door when we discovered rotting wood due to some water damage last summer.
Needless to say, the tile guys had to fix the sub floor before tiling.
The new tile is in!
Too bad it is not sunny today.
Maybe I will update with better pictures if the sun comes out!
As you can see, the grout matches the tile really well. This time, they put in a special grout that resists stains better. Hopefully it works because this room can get dirty!
Obviously, this is an unstaged-real life shot…
Below the door and in some areas, I still have to touch up some paint. Maybe I’ll also change the door hardware!
Here is what it looked like before. The Laundry Room is on top and the hall is on the bottom.
Seriously, could that grout be any dirtier?!!
In the photo above, you can see the hallway on the left and the laundry room on the right.
The laundry room picks up the darker tones from the tiles in the hall and they blend really well together (much better in person – believe me!)
You might notice we replaced the “saddle”between the two rooms from gray to tan.
Of course, now I am thinking about changing this tub to a real sink.
Will I ever be done?
Oh yeah, and I think I am going to repaint the whole room.
It seems so drab with the Ben Moore Providence Olive color now.
But for now, I think I will just enjoy the new floor!
Do you ever feel like these renovations go on forever?
