It’s been a while since I’ve had news to share on the House on Hunt Ave! The house flipping process has been a bit dirtier and less aesthetically appealing than expected (darn you, HGTV) – hence the lack of photos and progress updates. But room one is officially done with renovations, so here we are!
When we first purchased this house, it was far from a home you’d want to live in. There was garbage literally in every corner, it smelled, and you could tell it was severely neglected by the previous owner. We knew we wanted to start with the bathroom as soon as possible for two reasons: First, because there was an unpleasant stench coming from the room; and second, so the guys could actually have a functioning toilet to use while they are working.
After a lot of initial tidying up and tearing down, the bathroom was ready to be tackled. Here is what we started with:
And the aftermath of “Demo day”:
And now, I present to you… the blank canvas of a newly renovated bathroom!
How’s that for a glow-up? We obviously got rid of everything in the bathroom to start fresh. Luke installed beautiful tile flooring and we decided on oil rubbed bronze accessories and finishes to match the accents on the new vanity.
The room still needs a good deep clean, and then it will be ready for the part I’ve been waiting for: styling! I put together inspiration boards for each room in the house and I can’t wait to get to work. Here’s the overall look I’m going for in the bathroom:
Since it’s a small space, I decided to keep things light and airy with some small black/oil rubbed bronze accents to tie everything together and keep it from being too feminine. I plan on using smart storage options like the wire basket pictured here to keep extra toilet paper rolls and bathroom spray behind the toilet, and I’m on the lookout for some decorative wall hangings that will be hung with 3M strips to give the space some added personality, without putting any permanent holes in the freshly painted walls.
The best part? Everything pictured here can be purchased for under $90!
